Chemotherapy for your pet

Posted February 25, 2012 @ 4:32pm | by Alex Molldrem, DVM

There comes a point when we realize our pets are getting old, whether it’s the graying around their muzzle or the stiffness in their gait. Sometimes though, it’s a sudden catastrophe that hits unexpectedly, while other times it’s an enlarged lymph node that wasn’t there the day before.

The decision to pursue chemotherapy can be a complicated one filled with many uncertainties. For a majority of cases, the goal of chemotherapy is not to cure their disease, but rather to try to prolong their quality of life. Sometimes, all that we ask for is a bit more quality time to say our goodbyes.

We now offer chemotherapy at the Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota. It is just one of the ways we can continue to offer exceptional care to our pets.

We know the decision to pursue chemotherapy can be a complicated one and may not be for everyone. For some though, a few extra months of pet hair, drool on the window, footprints in the snow, and happy mornings are worth it.
