Pet Cancer RESOURCE CENTER
Pet CANCER DIAGNOSIS
Pet cancer diagnosis and management is something we specialize in here at Southern Colorado Veterinary Internal Medicine. Both dogs and cats can be affected by cancer. As is the case in humans, cancer can affect any organ within the body. There are many options to address the problem of cancer in pets. These options include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. In some cases, multiple modalities may be employed to treat your pet. We specialize in the planning and administering of various chemotherapeutic medications to help fight cancer. If radiation therapy is the best option to treat your pet, we may recommend a referral to another facility.
“Yogi” and his oncology team celebrated his final chemotherapy treatment for lymphoma in January 2019.
Chemotherapy FOR PETS
Many pets that are diagnosed with cancer can have an improved quality of life with the addition of veterinary chemotherapy agents to their treatment plan. Not all forms of cancer will respond well to chemotherapy, but our specialists and nursing team can help you make the decision to treat if it is best for your pet. Our goal is to improve the quality of your pet’s life. When we recommend chemotherapy, it is because we believe that the benefits of chemotherapy outweigh the potential complications for your pet. We provide a dedicated nursing staff for our chemotherapy patients who provide constant support to help you with questions and concerns.
