US approves new drug for cancer in dogs

The dog-blogging world has many posts about the first drug to be approved specifically for veterinary use. I first saw the reference at Dog Blog and then follwed the trail to articles in the Baltimore Sun and The Oregonian.

But for me the best post is by Dolittler, a veterinarian and blogger from Miami, Florida in the US. She discusses the pros and cons of this new treatment compared to traditional therapies such as surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, and looks at the costs and possible side effects.
