Dog Cancer Chemotherapy Side Effects [MP3]

Ask Dr. Dressler: Chemo Side Effects

While many chemo protocols are "easier" on dogs than we imagine, sometimes that's because the doses used are not curative. And even with those lower, palliative doses, there can still be major side effects to watch out for. From the short term to the long term, Dr. Dressler talks about the side effects of chemotherapy and how to address them with your dog at home. A must-listen for anyone going through chemo with their dog, or contemplating doing so. 

As always, Dr. Dressler also answers questions from members about their dog’s cancer.
