Just as in humans, a pet with cancer often needs an oncologist to help diagnose and treat the disease.
Early detection, specialized care and ongoing medical advances are helping to increase survival and cure rates in almost all the types of cancers that affect pets. From surgery to chemotherapy to immunotherapy, veterinary cancer specialists can offer your pet the very latest diagnostic and treatment options and the best chance for survival with an excellent quality of life. With optimal treatment, some cancers may become another manageable chronic disease.
