Cancer can be common in older pets. We work hard to catch it and treat it.
Unfortunately, cancer is one of the more common conditions in our pets and it becomes more likely as our pets age. Most cancer is diagnosed through blood work, radiographs, cytology and histopathology. It is important to schedule annual wellness examinations and to have your pet examined if you notice a physical or behavioral change.
If cancer is diagnosed, a treatment plan will be discussed which may include medical therapy or surgery. If your pet requires radiation therapy or other medical or surgical treatment, your pet may be referred to an oncologist in the area.
