We recognize that a diagnosis of cancer is heartbreaking. It is normal to have intense emotions. A cancer diagnosis does not necessarily mean that there is no hope; there are options that may result in highly favorable outcomes, depending on the type of cancer involved and how quickly it is discovered.
Our veterinary professionals and support staff are well-trained, extremely sympathetic, and aware of the need to concentrate on the emotional and medical elements of treating cancer. We want to make sure you have a thorough grasp of your pet’s sickness and can make the best decisions for both you and your pet. We’re here to work with you.
Cancer Treatment For Pets
A correct diagnosis is the first step in cancer treatment for pets. We start with a thorough physical examination and examine blood tests and, when necessary, use diagnostic imaging techniques like radiography or ultrasound. Additionally, we conduct needle aspirates, a sort of biopsy in which a needle is used to remove cells from the tumor to identify the type of tumor. A core biopsy is necessary to diagnose certain tumor forms. In some circumstances, cancer specialists may be used as part of our team in treating your pet’s cancer and for additional diagnostic tests (such as MRI and CT scans).
