Cancer poses a significant risk to pets, particularly to aging and geriatric animals. Early cancer diagnoses and proper treatment can improve your pet’s quality of life and help him or her to live longer with fewer complications. You can be proactive in your pet’s well-being by observing your pet and reporting any physical and behavioral changes you see to your veterinarian. Remember that allowing your veterinarian an opportunity to detect problems early gives your pet the best chance at successful treatment and recovery.
Our oncology services include cancer screening, therapy, and surgery. Your Animal Medical Hospital veterinarian will provide you with information about your pet’s condition and discuss which proven treatment options will most benefit your pet. In some cases, your veterinarian may recommend that you consult an oncology specialist and will provide you with a referral.
There are more oncology options than ever before, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, nutritional support, acupuncture, and clinical trials. We understand that this can be a difficult time for you and your pet. We want to assure you that our primary goal is to enhance your pet’s quality of life and provide the most appropriate treatment solutions to fight the disease.
