Cancer in dogs and cats bears many similarities to cancer in people—the causes are largely unknown, it can occur in any part of the body, and early detection is exceptionally important to the success of treatment options.
Thankfully, another similarity of cancer in pets to cancer in people is that there are many more treatment options available and more successful procedures are being developed every year.
At Barton Heights Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarians can assist you and your pet from early detection to the administering of treatments. Our hospital is equipped to conduct needle biopsies, and we have a good relationship with pathologists we can send biopsies to so that they can make a definitive diagnosis. Our highly qualified surgeons also remove lumps, and our vets are able to administer specific types of chemotherapy treatments that are available to pets.
We understand that this can be a difficult time for pets and the families that love them, and we are committed to providing you with the most up-to-date cancer treatment information. Barton Heights Veterinary Hospital offers high quality diagnostic and treatment options for your pet, and we encourage you to discuss the possibilities with our veterinarians.
