Description:

Methotrexate is an antineoplastic drug that is used to treat certain types of lymphoma (a type of cancer) and tumors. It works by slowing the growth of cells that multiply rapidly.

Because of the nature of the drug and its toxicities, pregnant or nursing animals should avoid using methotrexate.

Cautions:

Methotrexate can interact with several medications. Some of these include NSAIDS, cyclosporine, and folic acid. It is important to discuss with your pet's veterinarian all medications, supplements, and herbal products you may be giving to your pet before starting methotrexate.

Side effects and allergic reactions include:

  • Diarrhea.
  • Nausea.
  • Lack of an appetite (especially in cats).
  • Vomiting (especially in dogs).
  • Hair loss.
  • Lack of energy.

Warning:

Wear gloves when handling methotrexate and giving it to your pet. Wash your hands well, afterward. Women of child-bearing age need to know that methotrexate can cause birth defects and harm a fetus.
