Description

Practical aspects of daily chemotherapy administration and toxicity management Chemotherapy constitutes the mainstay of daily practice for medical oncology. There are several cancers in dogs and cats for which there is good, and sometimes high level evidence of benefit with improvement in both quality and quantity of life despite some short term side effects. The administration of chemotherapy requires very little overhead but does require a thorough knowledge of and familiarity with the indications for, the unique side effects of, and the proper administration of each chemotherapy drug. This talk will review the mechanisms of action, the general and unique side effects, the indications for, and the communication with pet owners managing their dogs through the more commonly used chemotherapy drugs in veterinary practice.
