There’s no doubt that one of the most frightening things a pet owner can hear is that their animal companion has cancer. Partridge Animal Hospital can provide diagnosis and treatment in many cases. We’ll also be here to walk you through and help you decide on the best option for your pet and family.
Chemotherapy can be effective in decreasing tumor sizes and prolonging the lifespan of pets. The specific type of chemotherapy treatment will depend on your pet and the type of cancer he or she has.
You should be aware before choosing chemotherapy for your pet that this treatment will not completely cure your pet of cancer, but may make your pet more comfortable. It also may have some side effects, although pets tend to respond differently to chemotherapy than do humans.
It’s important to know that should your pet contract cancer, it is not automatically a terminal diagnosis. Partridge Animal Hospital is a compassionate resource and can offer hope and healing in many cases.
