Advances in technology and veterinary medicine have made it easier to detect many forms of cancer earlier than ever. Many veterinary treatment options are available these days, including chemotherapy in Chemotherapy Administration certain instances.
Pets diagnosed with cancer are referred to a veterinary oncologist. In select cases, after examination by the oncologist, pets are sent back to us for treatment, where we administer the chemotherapy that is prescribed. This is usually done weekly and eliminates the need for travel to a referral center. Pets are more at ease with the familiar setting of our hospital, treated by the caring technicians they have grown to know and trust.
Radiation Therapy is another option available for treating certain forms of cancer as well as for treating feline thyroid tumors. We work closely with a local veterinary center that offers this life-saving procedure for pets.
