Cancer Care for Glendale Pets

Cancer is a disease that impacts both humans and animals, and even the healthiest ones may suffer from it. The good news is that cancer can be treated and the symptoms can be managed.

At our Glendale veterinary clinic, our veterinarians are committed to caring for pets with cancer. We also support the individuals and families who love them. As your primary care veterinarian, we work closely with veterinary oncology specialists to ensure your pet receives the best possible care. 

After studying your pet's medical history and diagnosis we will sit down with you and your pet to discuss the disease, treatment options, and prognosis.


If your pet has cancer, additional diagnostic testing can help us determine the extent of cancer in the body, allowing us to optimize treatment options and better predict a prognosis.

At Limehouse Veterinary Clinic, we can diagnose your pet's condition using diagnostic radiology and various analyzers.

Supportive Care

After your pet has received a diagnosis of cancer, our veterinary team will discuss all appropriate treatment options. Cancer can be treated with several different therapies or combinations of treatments.

At Limehouse Veterinary Clinic we offer supportive herbal medicine, holistic care, and palliative care when appropriate.

Treatment Options

Following staging, our team can go over available treatment options. Cancer can be treated with a variety of therapies or combinations of therapies, such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies, or palliative care as needed.


Trying to predict the life expectancy of a cancer-stricken pet is extremely difficult for veterinarians, especially given that few pets die naturally. The pet owner ultimately decides how long their dog lives after a cancer diagnosis in many cases. It is also true that some cancers are relatively easy to remove surgically if detected early, whereas surgery is not an option for others.

How do veterinary oncologists work with primary care vets?

A primary care veterinarian evaluates the majority of conditions that develop in our pets. If your pet develops a problem or a mass that necessitates advanced care and procedures, your veterinarian may refer you to a Veterinary Oncologist.

ACVIM Diplomates work in large hospitals or referral centers with access to cutting-edge facilities, equipment, and support personnel. Primary care veterinarians can discuss a case with an oncologist and provide coordinated care throughout treatment.

Why should I seek care from a veterinary oncologist?

  • Veterinary oncologists are specially trained to balance cancer treatment with underlying conditions while preserving the quality of life.
  • Veterinary oncologists are trained to detect side effects early and adjust therapy to try to prevent them from occurring again.
  • Veterinary oncologists stay up to date on the latest and greatest treatments to achieve maximum benefit with the least amount of disruption to daily life.
  • Veterinary oncologists are frequently the best equipped to coordinate care with specialized veterinary surgeons and radiation oncologists.
