Oncology

Facing the diagnosis of cancer in your pet can be a very upsetting and overwhelming experience. Our Vets will discuss all possible treatments available and what they involve. The type of treatment involved varies depending on the location, type, and stage of cancer. The main therapies used to treat animals with cancer involve chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and immunotherapy.  Your pet may be referred to an external oncology specialist depending on the treatment they require.
