Veterinary Oncology at American Pet Hospital
At American Pet Hospital we believe that caring for a pet with cancer should be a team effort. Our goal is to provide pet owners with the most accurate diagnoses and staging information possible, along with appropriate treatment recommendations for their pets. Our vets are experienced in diagnosing and treating a range of cancers in pets, however, if your dog or cat requires specialized cancer diagnostics or care we will refer you to a Veterinary Oncologist in Modesto or as close to your home as possible.
Staging (Additional Diagnostics)
After an initial diagnosis of cancer, additional diagnostic testing is sometimes recommended to help to determine the extent of cancer, provide us with additional information so that treatment can be optimized, and better predict prognosis.
When staging is complete, your veterinarian will discuss all the appropriate treatment options. Cancer can be treated by several different therapies or combinations of treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies or palliative care when appropriate.
