Q. “Will my pet’s hair or whiskers fall out with chemotherapy?”


A. Canine breeds that have fur (not hair) will not experience any loss of their coat. Certain breeds that have hair (such as poodles, terriers, and sheepdogs), rather than fur, may have some hair loss due to treatment. Dogs and cats can lose their whiskers and guard hairs, but those may grow back during or after their treatment is completed.

Occasionally, hair will grow back a different texture or color, which is a cosmetic side effect that will not negatively impact the quality of your pet’s life.
