Cancer chemotherapy is an important new and growing area of veterinary medicine. Many practitioners are regularly using cytotoxic drugs for cancer therapy as diagnosis of the condition is relatively straightforward. However, the theory behind the use of these potent drugs is poorly understood and few practitioners have any training in this area. This book is the first to provide comprehensive coverage of the subject. Using text, notes and tabulated information it provides a highly practical guide to the correct treatment of tumours and the pharmacology behind the use of cytotoxic drugs.
