Chemotherapy Administration

For many of us, we have never experienced a chemotherapy administration and have no real idea of how the drugs are given and what the visit involves.  Many chemo drugs are given by IV infusion.  A small plastic needle,  called a catheter, is inserted generally into a front leg vein and the drugs are “dripped” along with fluids into the patient over a period of time.  Administration lengths vary depending on the medication.  Each patient is a little different and many times we administer a small sedative to allow the pet to rest during their administration.  Families and friends…and favorite toys… are always welcome for support.
