My first chemo treatment

Hi everyone, I had my first chemo treatment Friday the 18th, my mom dropped me off and picked me back up an hour later.  The girls at Fox Creek took very good care of me when they administered the Carboplatin via IV.  It was only a 15 minute procedure. The only side effect that my pawrents had to be aware of was that this could lower my white blood count, so I have to see my regular vet 7 days later to have them do a CBC count. So far I feel really good and strong. For more information on Carboplatin or other cancer treatments, my mom found this web site that explains everything about Carboplatin and other treatments.

Just an FYI to all of  my fellow tripawds, there is another treatment that goes along with Carboplatin which is Adriamycin, but because our vet explained, it does not make give our lives any more quality than the single dose of just Carboplatin. So be careful when you chose your treatment. The double dose is also double in the cost. I will continue my treatments every three weeks for up to 12 weeks. It will of course all depend on my CBC counts and xray results each time I visit my friends at Fox Creek.
