Cancer treatment, diagnosis, and prevention are all topics covered by oncology. The majority of animals can be helped in some way, according to veterinary oncologists with years of advanced training and experience in treating pet cancers. That may imply that a remedy is available for some animals. There may be palliative medicines available for other animals that offer a higher quality of life.
At the Devashrya Animal Foundation, veterinary oncologists frequently collaborate with other specialists. Three main subspecialties make up clinical oncology:
- Medical oncology (the medical treatment of cancer, including chemotherapy),
- surgical oncology (the surgical treatment of cancer, including tumor biopsy, staging, and surgical resection).
- and radiation oncology (the treatment of cancer with therapeutic radiation).
Many pets first receive a diagnosis from an internal medicine, surgery, or other specialist before seeing an oncologist since cancer symptoms vary and can sometimes be accompanied by other illnesses.
Diseases we often treat:
- Skin cancer
- Bone cancer
- Liver and spleen cancer
- Urinary system cancer
- Lymph system cancers
- Thyroid cancers
- Mammary cancer
- Soft-tissue cancer
