Chemotherapy for Cats Can Diminish Tumors and Control Cancer
Cat chemotherapy uses drugs with the objective to kill cancer cells with the least amount of damage to healthy cells. In cats, chemotherapy is used to control the cancer and achieve a period of remission for your cat. In most cases, chemotherapy is used to treat cancers that have affected multiple areas of the body.
The majority of cats respond well and tolerate chemotherapy. However, side effects such as vomiting, diarrhea and poor appetite may occur. Unlike humans, cats will not lost their hair, but some may lose their whiskers.
