Oncology (Cancer) Specialty Services
A diagnosis of cancer can be frightening for a pet owner and veterinary oncologists are there to help. Many cancers that occur in humans can also occur in companion animals and it is estimated that 1 in 4 dogs will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cats can also develop many of the same types of cancers but their unique physiology requires a specialized approach to treatment. Your primary care veterinarian is the first line in determining if there is a serious problem and confirming a diagnosis.
A veterinary oncologist is a veterinarian that has received specialized training in the treatment and management of cancer in pets once a diagnosis has been obtained. Nearly all pets with cancer have the potential to receive some type of treatment. With the help of a veterinary oncologist, an individualized treatment plan can be developed to relieve pain, eliminate symptoms and provide the best quality of life possible for your companion.
- We currently offer diagnostic imaging services to identify cancer and work with a boarded oncologist to treat cancer patients.
