Chlorambucil is used in dogs to treat canine lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, lymphoreticular neoplasms, macroglobinemia, polycythemia vera, and inflammatory bowel disease. It also may be used in combination with Prednisone when treating Pemphigus complex.
Chlorambucil is used in cats to treat lymphocytic leukemia, lymphocytic plasmacytic enteritis, Pemphigus, inflammatory bowel disease, and feline eosinophillic granuloma complex. Chlorambucil is considered safer than Azathioprine for use in cats.
Chlorambucil has been used within a multiple-drug protocol to treat lymphoma in horses.
Side effects primarily are gastrointestinal distress (including vomiting and diarrhea) and bone marrow suppression. Alopecia, particularly in Poodles and Kerry Blues, has been reported. Seizures are a rarer side effect.
Chlorambucil should be used with caution with other myelosuppressive or immunosuppressive drugs due to additive bone marrow suppression or increased risk of infection.
