cancer treatments

Has anyone had experience with cancer treatments with their cats? The cancer is in his abdomen and has spread in to an advanced stage and we were wondering if anyone has sought any form of treatment and what have the outcomes been? Thank you.

Re: cancer treatments

I have not, nor do I think I would. Unless the treatment outcome has a very high percentage of sucess, like great results for certain procedures or catching it in the early stages before it progresses to become system-wide, I would not put a cat through any procedure unless I knew (or felt confident) that the pet could be cured and live a good life afterwards.

I have to have chemo pills/shots (I don't have cancer, I have an auto-immune disorder) and they make me feel nauseated and icky. I can't imagine how a small kitty would feel, especially where food ingestion is critical for maintaining weight and energy.
