What is Leukeran?
Leukeran is the brand name product for chlorambucil which is a medication used in certain cancers and other conditions in pets. The most common side effects associated with Leukeran include blood abnormalities, immune abnormalities, and stomach upset/damage. In dogs, Leukeran can also cause shaven fur to grow back much slower. It is important to note how Leukeran depresses your pet’s immune system, so it is essential to keep your pet at low risk of any other infection or illness while they are taking Leukeran. If your pet experiences abnormal bleeding, bruising, urination, depression, infection or shortness of breath while taking Leukeran, you should contact your pet's veterinarian immediately.
