EASING THE BURDEN OF CHEMOTHERAPY-INDUCED DIARRHEA (CID) IN DOGS
WHAT IS CHEMOTHERAPY-INDUCED DIARRHEA (CID)?
CID is a common side effect of approved chemotherapy treatments in dogs.
Digestive complications like CID occur because of how chemotherapy drugs are designed to work.
Chemotherapy drugs can attack the cells in the lining of the stomach and digestive tract, since they cannot distinguish between some normal cells.
WHAT ARE THE BURDENS OF CID IN DOGS?
For dogs with CID, approximately 42% of those patients require a future veterinary visit, 29% require rehydration, and 9% require hospitalization. 2
More than half of veterinarians reported that CID interferes with their patient’s chemotherapy treatment plan. 1
Severe or prolonged diarrhea can result in significant dehydration and metabolic disturbances due to water loss.
HOW DOES Canalevia-CA1 HELP MY DOG?
Chloride channels provide pathways for water secretion in the intestine.
Canalevia-CA1 acts within the GI tract targeting chloride channels on the lining of the intestine.
Canalevia-CA1 modifies the chloride ion channels to normalize water flow in the GI tract.
Canalevia-CA1 acts locally and is not absorbed into the blood stream, ensuring a well tolerated and non-toxic treatment.
