Advanced Veterinary Oncology in Stockton
humans and animals both, no matter how healthy, can be afflicted with cancer. Fortunately, American Veterinary Hospital has at its disposal advanced treatment methods for cancer.
We are committed to providing care and treatment for pets with cancer and supporting individuals and families that love them. If we need to refer your pet out for more specialized treatment, we will work closely with veterinary oncologists 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.
Deciding on Treatment for Dogs and Cats with Cancer
On-site Staging (Additional Diagnostics)
After a diagnosis of cancer, additional diagnostic testing can help to determine the extent of cancer in the body, which allows us to optimize treatment options and better predict prognosis.
When staging is complete, our team of specialists will discuss all the appropriate treatment options. Cancer can be treated by several therapies or combinations of treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies, or palliative care when appropriate.
