Chemotherapy

 

 Cancer is a common condition we see in pets. Cancer occurs due to uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells within the body. Just as in people, early cancer detection may improve treatment success. While not always curable, many cancers respond to treatments that can improve your pets's quality of life. This includes surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and often a combination of these options. 

Our first recommendation is always a referral to one of the board-certified oncololgists in our area where they can do a full cancer work up and proprose a treatment plan. We realize this may not be an option for everyone for different reasons. Although we are not board-certified oncologists, we can offer surgery and chemotherapy options for some types of cancers.

Receiving that intial diagnosis of cancer in your pet can be a very trying time and absorbing all the information about treatment is overwhelming.

     Here are some things to consider:

  • What are the options for treatment?
  • What is the goal of treatment?                                                                     
  • What is my pet's prognosis with and without treatment?                                                                
  • What are the costs involved?
  • Are there side effects of treatment?

 Our doctors are prepared to discuss all these questions and any others you may have. We want to help you make the best decision for your family.
