I would like to know if you have treated many dogs with nerve sheath tumors in there shoulder. I did surgery for my dog and the vet recommended 19 radiation treatments which I did. But I feel this caused heart damage. Have any of your clients had the same experience?

Hello,

I have treated nerve sheath tumors. They are a very difficult type of cancer to treat and should be done in the hands of an oncologist and/or surgeon (depending on location).

I do not know if the radiation caused or exacerbated the heart damage. Certainly if you are concerned that it did you should talk to the veterinarian that was treating your dog. But, In general radiation is highly targeted and should not affect the heart.

Thank you for your question,

Sincerely,
Krista
