Question:

If a pet is getting treated for cancer, can he be around my small children?

Answer:

Erika Krick, VMD, DACVIM Veterinary Medical Oncologist, University of Pennsylvania responds:

It depends on the type of treatment your dog is receiving. The potential concerns would be any exposure of your children to vomit, urine, or feces after a pet has been treated with chemotherapy as well as concerns about how your pet might act around children if he or she is feeling ill or in any pain related to the cancer treatment.
