We all know it too well: that sinking feeling when we see the golden retriever scheduled for “check lumps on neck.” But we can do more than ever to treat canine lymphoma with a novel drug. In this episode of Clinician’s Brief Partner Podcast, host Dr. Beth Molleson sits down with Dr. Sue “Cancer Vet” Ettinger to discuss canine lymphoma and a novel treatment option to overcome hurdles regarding access to care, including affordability and convenience. Dr. Ettinger shares her “investigate before you tell” approach to conversations with pet owners, why you shouldn’t start a lymphoma patient on prednisone if they are being referred to an oncologist, and where this novel drug can fit in for a general practitioner.
