What is Veterinary Radiation Oncology?

Veterinary Radiation Oncology is a specialized type of cancer treatment that involves radiation therapy to help control internal and external cancerous masses or tumors. Masses or tumors that have been unresponsive to other procedures or that cannot be surgically removed can also respond well to radiation therapy. Radiation therapy is often used in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy, and other treatment methods.
