Delayed absorption of cisplatin or carboplatin in local anticancer therapy (CUL therapy) using lipiodol was applied to two cases of intraoral squamous cell carcinoma, of a dog and a cat. The therapeutic course was good, with a remarkable contraction of tumor size, and the QOL was significantly improved. CUL therapy appeared to be a useful therapy in local anticancer treatment for intraoral squamous cell carcinoma. No systemic side effect was observed in these cases. This therapy was aimed at improving QOL in cases involving the tumor.
