Oncology

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.
