Medical Oncology Treatments

Medical Oncology is often used in conjunction with surgery, radiation oncology, internal medicine, and other treatment methods. The chemotherapy treatments that are used are the same as those used as the treatment of humans with cancer. Your pet’s customized treatment plan is administered, monitored, and managed by our highly skilled veterinary nurses within our hospital.
