Exciting news released by the FDA and Pfizer today – a new drug is available to treat Mast Cell Tumor (MCT) in dogs. I heard about this sometime last year, but it was not yet approved. The drug will be made available to veterinary specialists this year to gather more clinical experience data, and then be made available for purchase in early 2010.
