Dosage and Effect of Chemotherapy in the Clumber Spaniel – A Retrospective Study

There is new veterinary research into Clumber Spaniels looking into chemotherapy dosage and outcomes of treatment. This is to see if the Clumber Spaniel reacts better to a smaller dose of Chemotherapy than their size/ weight would normally dictate. It is important information that, should a research paper be produced as the outcome, will help veterinary oncologists with chemotherapy doses for the Clumber Spaniel.

If you have a dog that is currently having chemotherapy or have had a dog that had chemotherapy in the past, please consider participating in this research. If you would like further information or to participate, please email
