The diagnosis of cancer in pets is a stressful experience for pet owners. At Loyalist Veterinary Hospital, we approach treatment of our cancer patients with compassion and care. We will discuss with you different options for your pet and work with you to develop a medical progress plan that keeps the comfort of your pet at the forefront.
Pets experience fewer and much less severe side effects than people that receive chemotherapy as we use lower doses of drugs and do not combine as many drugs as in human medicine. It is estimated that less than 5% of all receiving chemotherapy experience serious side effects. Our goal is to improve quality of life and extend longevity. How a drug is administered, its frequency of administration and recommended medical follow-up is dependent on the type of cancer and varies with each individual patient. Please call our hospital to book a consultation appointment to discuss how we can help your pet.
