Do you treat feline tumors with an anti-inflammatory drug?

Our vet gave us only an anti-inflammatory.


Answer by  Cheri99 (187)

Anti-inflammatory medications don't treat the tumor itself, they are to treat the pain. Feline tumors and cancers can be quite painful, and an immediate pain control management plan is neccesary.

Most of the time either chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation is used. It depends on how big the tumor is and where it is on the cat's body.


Answer by  iggylizard (352)

It depends on the type of tumor and what the tumor is affecting. If you doubt the legitimacy of the prescription, get a second opinion.

The research focused on a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma called diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. In some patients with the disease,chemotherapy works well. In a recent study of 40 patients more than 75 percent of patients with one form of this type of lymphoma survived five years or longer.

If the tumor is cancerous then there is not much that can be done except for these drugs to help alleviate the size of the mass.

At the very end, my vet helped improve the quality of my cat's life with anti-inflammitories, but this was onyl a step to make her feel better.
