Cancer Treatments

Cancer strikes pets as well as people. While it is a difficult diagnosis to hear, our veterinarians at SWVH are dedicated to seeking out and finding the right treatment for your pet. Treatments can include surgical excision, chemotherapy, and radiation. Our doctors work closely with the Oncology departments at UC Davis, VCA Loomis Basin and even those as far out as Colorado State University.

Many diagnoses require a multifaceted approach with pain management, supportive care, and diet changes. Our lab services offer the capabilities for complete blood counts before and after cancer therapies, as well as digital radiology on-site to monitor progress.

Keeping up to date with the latest advancements and protocols is an imperative aspect of diagnosis and treatment. Please contact us for more information so that we can discuss personalized care for your pet.
