Cancer in pets is much like it is in humans, a potentially debilitating disease that can afflict even the most healthy among us. The good news is that it can be treated with a number of advanced methods.
Northwest Austin Veterinary Center works with specialists to ensure your pet receives the best possible care.
After reviewing your pet’s medical history and diagnosis we will sit down with you and your pet to discuss the disease, staging (additional diagnostics), treatment options, and prognosis.
After a diagnosis of cancer, additional diagnostic testing can help to determine the extent of cancer in the body, which allows the specialist to optimize treatment options and better predict prognosis.
When staging is complete, the specialist will discuss all the appropriate treatment options. Cancer can be treated by different therapies or combinations of treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies, or palliative care when appropriate.
