…'intra cavity' chemotherapy, where they say they adminster the chemo directly to the affected area, so it sounds like the same sort of principle to inhalation therapy but a vet still has not got back to me from there so I am not sure the ins and outs of the procedure or if it is suitable for lung mets.

What is Inhalation Chemotherapy?

Inhalation chemotherapy uses a nebulizer to fight metastasis growth…

The downside to inhalation chemotherapy is that it can be cumbersome, mainly because of the logistics of putting a mask on your dog's muzzle for any length of time. Tripawd…
