New Cancer Treatment Drug for Dogs

We have received news that Pfizer Animal Health has received FDA approval on a new veterinary cancer therapy, called PALLADIA. This drug was developed to treat grade II or II, recurrent, cutaneous mast cell tumors with or without regional lymph node involvement in dogs.

Mast cell disease is one of the most common cancers we see in dogs. Most can be managed surgically, but this new drug offers a new treatment option. PALLADIA will be available to board certified veterinary specialists in the coming months. Your veterinarian at Broad Ripple Animal Clinic & Wellness Center is able to discuss this treatment option with you and make referrals for candidates that may benefit from this new treatment. There are certain risks and side-effects that may occur with this treatment, so it is important to discuss this with your veterinarian. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 317.257.5334 or email Dr. Ben Ealing directly at b.ealing.dvm@bracpet.com
