Our hospital offers Oncology Services for your pet. Oncology is the branch of veterinary medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in pets. Our veterinarians will conduct a detailed medical history, physical examination, laboratory diagnostics and likely recommend x-rays and/or ultrasound as well as a biopsy to fully determine the extent and stage of your pet’s disease. Many cancers are very treatable especially when detected early and this supports the importance of annual or bi-annual examinations in pets as they age.
There are several board-certified oncologists available for phone consultation with your veterinarian that will assist in developing an appropriate treatment plan for your pet. If your veterinarian feels your pet has a more serious problem or advanced disease, they may actually recommend a referral to an Oncologist for your pet's best possible care.
