What is Veterinary Oncology?

Veterinary Oncology is the field of veterinary medicine that focuses on treatment of animals with cancer. A veterinary oncologist can help with the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers, tumors, masses, and secondary symptoms of cancer that your pet may be experiencing.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in companion animals over age 10. Early detection and treatment may result in a better prognosis and quality of life for your pet.

Obtaining an accurate diagnosis and comprehending the scope of your pet's illness are the essential first steps to decide which treatments will offer the best outcome for your pet and family.
