Cancer chemotherapy is a growing area of veterinary medicine, and 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. Using text, notes and tabulated information, this book provides a practical guide to the correct treatment of tumours and the pharmacology behind the use of cytotoxic drugs. After considering the basic principles of tumour biology and the application of cytotoxic drugs, the book reviews the mode of action of the most frequently used groups of cytotoxic drugs. This is supported by comprehensive tables detailing specific agents, trade names, indications of dose rates and toxicity.
