Palladia, a Pfizer drug, is approved for treating advanced mast cell tumors, a common form of cancer in dogs. In a study of 150 dogs, tumors shrank or disappeared in 43% of those that received the drug, compared with 8% of those who received a placebo. The study didnít look at whether the drug extended the dogsí lives, and side effects included vomiting and diharrea, said Cheryl London a vet oncologist at Ohio State who conducted early-stage research on the drug.

You can ask a speciallist about it, maybe your dog will get better from the Palladia drug.
