Oncology - Cancer Treatment
Many types of cancer in dogs and cats are very treatable and respond well to chemotherapy or other treatment techniques. Our staff at Blake Veterinary Hospital is experienced in treating many different types of cancer in pets. Cancer treatment in pets is a little different than what is done in human medicine. In human medicine, doctors push the limits of what a patient can withstand with their doses of medications. This can lead to a poor quality of life for those undergoing treatment. In veterinary medicine, we don’t treat quite as aggressively as our goal is to extend a high quality life for as long as possible. Many times, you would not be able to tell that a patient was undergoing chemotherapy.
