A diagnosis of cancer can be frightening. However, most pets respond extremely well to cancer treatments, which include tumor removal surgery and chemotherapy, and go on to lead happy, healthy lives. Additionally, pets do not experience the same side effects from chemotherapy that humans do, and often go on to lead healthy lives long after their cancer is gone.
The key to successful treatment, though, is early detection, which can occur during a thorough wellness exam as well as via diagnostic testing and imaging. Treatments offered by Deer Park Animal Hospital include diagnostics, surgical excision, chemotherapy, and supportive therapies. We can also refer you to a veterinary oncology specialist.
