Afterlife

The treatment of cancer in dogs utilizes many of the same methods available in human medicine. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hypothermia,
immunotherapy and photodynamic therapy are all part of the arsenal assembled to fight cancer in the pet animal. Most clinical research trials
investigating new methods of cancer diagnosis or treatment are conducted at colleges of veterinary medicine. Although considered "experimental",
effectiveness of the treatment has been proven in laboratory animals, safety has been demonstrated in normal dogs or cats, and the therapy is
considered to be of
potential benefit to the dog.  There are no guarantees that the experimental treatment will be better than the standard treatment
and in some instances it may be less effective.  However, because these treatments are on the cutting edge, when the prognosis is not positive, clinical
trials provide an opportunity for a better outcome.

Because many naturally occurring cancers in dogs closely resemble human cancer, innovative treatments trialed in dogs first, can provide meaningful
information for cancer research which may benefit both man and animals. The veterinary facility providing the clinical trial, with owner's permission, may
provide specimens obtained from the patient (blood, urine, and/or tumor samples) to basic researchers to gain additional information that may benefit
present and future cancer patients.
