Canine and feline patients with carcinoma will often develop carcinomatosis, which is the spread of the disease throughout the abdomen and potentially chest. We often treat these patients with palliative care in order to help keep them comfortable. Chemotherapy may also be administered to these patients. The goal with any treatment is to slow down the progression of their disease especially in patients that are already sick with diffuse metastasis. We often manage their symptoms with pain medications, anti-inflammatory medications (steroids, etc.), and additional medications (vitamin B12. SQ fluids, appetite stimulants, etc.) to help keep them as comfortable as possible.
