Chad Johannes, DVM, DACVIM (SAIM, Oncology), assistant professor of veterinary clinical sciences at Iowa State University, talks about the experience of chemotherapy for pets compared to the experience for people.

For pets, the frequency and duration of doses being used are completely different than what is used for chemotherapy in people. This results in better tolerability for pets going through chemotherapy. While pets may experience similar side effects as people, theses side effects are often less intense and often have a shorter duration than what is experienced in peoples.
