Urinary Bladder Cancer (Rhabdomyosarcoma) in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Surgical removal of the rhabdomyosarcoma is recommended, but it is difficult to perform, since these tumors are highly invasive. If the bladder is also inflamed due to a bacterial infection, antibiotics will be prescribed based on culture and sensitivity tests.

 

Living and Management

 

Your veterinarian will schedule follow-up appointments to follow your cat's progress every three weeks during chemotherapy therapy, and every three months after the of course of chemotherapy has ended.
