Sadly, cancer is just as common in animals as it is in people. And like people the disease can strike the young as well as the elderly. Regular check-ups can sometimes help catch tumours early. Any new or changing lump or bump should be examined by a veterinarian immediately. Weight loss, lack of energy or appetite are also signs that something, not necessarily cancer, may be wrong and should be checked out.
There are many forms of cancer and it can affect just about every organ. Diagnostic screening and treatments have advanced considerably for pets. Some cancers can be treated by the doctors of our hospital. We can also offer referrals to specialists for surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
