Veterinary Cancer Treatment

We provide treatment options such as chemotherapy and surgery for pets with cancer. Cancer cells can grow rapidly resulting in tumor growth, which may potentially spread to other organs. Chemotherapy drugs can kill cancer cells and inhibit their ability to divide. Based on your pet’s cancer type, a targeted treatment protocol will be developed and may include the use of chemotherapy drugs alone or in combination with surgery. Chemotherapy is generally well tolerated by pets, and we will use our advanced training and experience to care for your pet.

Common Signs of Pet Illness

Regular veterinary wellness care visits allow us to establish a baseline of health characteristics, which can be helpful in the diagnosis of future health concerns. We appreciate the unique bond between you and your pet, and it is important to notify us if you notice any changes in your pet such as:

  • Change in physical appearance
  • Change in behavior
  • Change in eating habits
  • Lumps or bumps
  • Sores that won’t heal
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Pet Cancer Prevention

Certain cancers involving your pet’s reproductive system can be minimized by having your pet spayed or neutered at an early age. However, most cancers cannot be prevented.
