Treatment of intermediate MCTs with only regional node involvement have a better outcome than high grade ones. But vets believe that till proper investigations are carried out, treatment of the intermediate grade tumors should be attached highest priority. These lesions are treated with local surgery or radiotherapy only if thorough staging fails to reveal dissemination. The outcome is not very gratifying due to distant and regional metastasis. Since the prognosis is guarded for high grade tumors, a less expensive, coarse fraction radiation therapy protocol can be considered. For several years the use of prednisone has been found to be highly beneficial.
Your veterinarian should be aware of any other medical conditions your dog has before prescribing ranitidine. Dogs with liver or kidney disease may be at risk for serious complications and shouldn’t take the drug. You should also tell your veterinarian about any other medications your dog is taking, including over-the-counter drugs, as these can react poorly with ranitidine, especially antacids. As with all medication, there is a risk of allergic reaction to ranitidine in dogs that can lead to anaphylaxis . If you see the signs of an allergic reaction, contact your veterinarian immediately.
