ONCOLOGY AT NOR CAL VET
We know there’s nothing more frightening and disorienting than hearing the word “cancer” when being given a diagnosis of your pet’s condition. Treatment can seem daunting, and the prognosis never sounds good. Fortunately, today’s pets have a wealth of new options, as conditions that were untreatable only a few years ago are now routinely sent into remission quickly and painlessly. Breakthroughs in early detection and therapies, as well as kinder, gentler treatments have allowed pets to live longer, happier lives than ever before.
ATTACKING CANCER FROM ALL SIDES
There are many types of cancer, including lymphoma, melanoma, mast cell tumors, and thyroid carcinoma. Depending on the location, type, and stage of your pet’s cancer, treatment plans will vary. Ultrasound, X-rays, tissue sampling, CT scan, or various specialized blood tests may be recommended before determining specific treatment options such as surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, acupuncture, or food therapy. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone, and that many forms of cancer can be easily treated, managed, and even cured. No matter what the plan entails, our team of specialists will walk you through each step of the process, from staging to diagnosis and treatment options, to implementation and monitoring.
