Nearly one out of every 10 dogs and one out of every five cats will be diagnosed with cancer this year – leading more veterinarians to offer sophisticated cancer treatment such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Veterinary oncologists can often add high-quality years to pets’ lives. Treatment plans are tailored to each pet’s needs.
How can you detect cancer in your pets? Visit your primary care vet if you notice sudden weight loss, lumps or changes in barks or meows, said Dr. Jen Coyle, a board-certified oncologist with BluePearl Veterinary Partners. Your vet will recommend a specialist if needed.
