Chemo or steroids: Give clients time to be sure
In her presentation on canine lymphoma at CVC San Diego, Dr. Sue Ettinger offered a potentially life-prolonging tip. Don't start prednisone if there is any chance the client might opt for chemotherapy. Give them a little space to think it over. Hear the details from dvm360 medicine channel director Mindy Valcarcel.
A client take-home message: Dr. Ettinger said you can remind owners about those cases in which owners who opted for prednisone and then see their pets perk up at home from the therapy decide, "Yeah, let's go for chemotherapy after all."
