Background and purpose
The purpose of this study is to prospectively evaluate the response of nasal cancer to a combination of therapies (chemotherapy and radiation therapy) in dogs.
What happens in this study

Dogs that are scheduled to receive radiation therapy for the treatment of nasal cancer can be enrolled in the study. Dogs will be placed into a group receiving radiation therapy alone or with chemotherapy. Response to these treatments will be assessed with CT scans (done before and after treatment).

Pet owner responsibilities

You will be responsible for providing follow-up information to the treating clinicians and returning the dog 4 weeks after initiation of radiation therapy for a second CT evaluation (the first is performed prior to treatment).

Participation requirements

We are looking for dogs diagnosed with nasal tumors.

Benefits and risks of participating
We hope that the data acquired in this study will allow us to advance the treatment of cancer in both pets and people.
Compensation
The CT scans, chemotherapy administration, and part of the radiation therapy will be paid for by the study.
