Cancer accounts for almost half of the deaths of pets over 10 years of age. With early diagnosis and thorough treatment, your pet does not have to suffer that fate. Our chief aim is for your pet to have a pain-free experience and a full remission of the cancer. In cases where the cancer does not go away, our goal becomes prolonging quality of life, regardless of quantity of life.
Cancer Treatment Options for Your Pet
Each type of cancer requires its own specialized treatment and may include a combination of treatment therapies:
- Cancer that is isolated to a tumor sometimes responds best to simple tumor-removal surgery.
- For metastasized cancers, intensive chemo treatments may be necessary.
- Some cancers appear to get triggered when the immune system is weakened. Immunotherapy corrects that.
Once we have a diagnosis of your pet’s cancer, we will discuss the best treatment option, other alternatives, and what to expect in terms of prognosis and budget. We will do this with compassion and with clarity.
Regular checkups, grooming, and monitoring any strange behavior from your pet is the best way to catch the presence of cancer. Contact us today and let our experienced staff get your dog or cat on the path toward healing.
