Chemotherapy & Immunotherapy
We offer chemotherapy for certain cancer types in dogs, cats, and horses. We also are excited to offer immunotherapy, which can be used by itself, or in combination with chemotherapy in the form of a vaccine.
Immunotherapy uses your pet’s own immune system to fight and destroy cancer cells. A healthy immune system recognizes and destroys abnormal cells every day. This is commonly used with certain cancers in humans and is showing promise with use in animals. To find out more about Immunotherapy, CLICK HERE.
Surgical Removal & Biopsy
A biopsy is a common procedure often performed to diagnose certain cancers and dermatological issues. Your veterinarian will perform the biopsy and submit the tissue sample obtained to a veterinary pathologist for interpretation.
Surgery is one of the most commonly used techniques to treat pet cancer. The first surgical procedure is the best chance to achieve complete surgical removal of cancer.
Prior to recommending surgery, knowledge of tumor type and an associated prognosis is necessary. Bloodwork and other biological samples may be required as well as advanced diagnostic imaging such as PET/ MRI, CT, and Ultrasound to determine the size of the tumor(s). Surgery may also include specialized surgical techniques such as thoracoscopy, laparoscopy, endoscopy, and other procedures, such as palliative stenting.
