Research behind bisphosphonates for feline bone tumors is sparse. But while searching for palliative care pain management of feline bone cancers, I came across this one study about bisphosphonates for cats with limb cancers.
If you find others please add to this discussion.
This study sought to quantify in vitro antiproliferative effects of pamidronate in feline cancer cells and assess feasibility of use of pamidronate in cats by assessing short-term toxicity and dosing schedule in cats with bone-invasive cancer. . . . Pamidronate therapy appears feasible for administration in cancer bearing cats with aggressive bone lesions in the dose range of 1-2 mg/kg every 21–28 days for multiple treatments. No acute or short-term toxicity was directly attributable to pamidronate.
