While there are things you can do to help prevent some forms of cancer by spaying and neutering your pet at an early age, most cancers cannot be prevented. Early detection through routine examinations and blood work is your pet's best weapon against this disease. Advancements in cancer treatment can dramatically extend the lives of cats and dogs. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery may be used to remove or destroy cancer cells and tumors and stop the spread of cancer.
While, some of these treatments can be performed at our office, some may have to be referred to a veterinary oncologist. The veterinarians at Atlantic Animal Hospital are here to assist you and your pet through the process and provide the services we can, with the comfort and compassion you and your pet deserve.
