Question:

How do dogs tolerate cancer treatment? Do they get sick like people do?

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

Answer:

Dogs tend to tolerate cancer treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy) relatively well compared to people, but they can certainly still have side effects. Quality of life is a primary goal of veterinary oncology, and we try to balance effective treatment and maintaining a pet's quality of life.
