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.
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.
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.
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.
