All About Radiation for Dogs | Jenny Fisher

What kills brain cancer cells, takes only 5-7 minutes, and provides pain relief from osteosarcoma? Radiation therapy.


Radiation therapy can sound very scary to many dog lovers. But it can be extremely useful for dog cancer, both to destroy tumors and to provide pain relief.

Jenny Fisher is a veterinary technician specialist in oncology, and has helped many dogs through radiation treatments. She explains all things radiation therapy, from the different treatment types to its best uses and potential side effects.

If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between teletherapy and brachytherapy, why some courses of radiation are short and others long, or what a dog experiences when dropped off for a treatment, this episode is for you.
