Oncology

 

The diagnosis, management and treatment of cancer in cats and dogs.

 

If your pet has been referred to us with a cancer diagnosis, rest assured we understand that it can be a frightening and confusing time. We are here to help. Pet owners often have many choices to make regarding possible treatments. Talking to owners about their pet’s disease and guiding them through difficult choices is a core part of our oncologists’ roles.

The philosophy of our oncology service is to ensure every pet we see maintains the best quality of life during treatment. In many cases, combinations of medical and surgical treatment can have very positive outcomes on quality of life. We are also able to treat cancer through various means, including drugs (chemotherapy and tyrosine kinase inhibitors), the melanoma vaccine (Oncept) therapy and surgery. The diagnosis and treatment of cancer requires input from other disciplines within the hospital, so our oncologists work very closely with soft tissue surgeons and other clinical services teams.

Please be aware that our oncologists are always prepared to discuss difficult cases with professional colleagues, but cannot discuss specific cases with pet owners without a formal referral from their primary veterinary practice.
