Chemotherapy

Surgery Information Menu

Chemotherapy is the general term for any treatment involving the use of a chemical agents to stop or hinder cancer cells in the process of growth and division.

Our goals at the Park Vets are to provide treatment that allows our patient to continue life as long as possible.

The doses of medication used for veterinary patients are less than those used in humans, so side effects are less common and less severe but please discuss this with our trained expert for clarification.

We recommend that we use chemotherapy when the tumour is likely to spread to other areas of the body or when tumours arise in more than one site.

We can also use chemotherapy when a tumour cannot be completely removed by surgery or to shrink a tumour to allow surgical removal.

The duration of chemotherapy depends on the type of cancer and the extent of the disease. On occasions some patients may require treatment for the rest of their lives whilst others once in remission may change from weeks to months. Some cancers may only require a short course of 4 to 6 weeks.

For further information please speak to one of our receptionists to arrange a consultation with Dave Dickson who has specialist interest in chemotherapy.
