One of the devastating diagnoses a pet owner can receive is that their pet has cancer. We have special interest and expertise in administering Chemotherapy to pets. We are devoted to providing comprehensive cancer care for companion animals (dogs, cats, ferrets, etc.) through a partnership with board-certified specialists in Oncology.

Fortunately, the adverse effects of chemotherapy are less severe and better tolerated in dogs and cats than in people. We understand the special relationship you share with your pet, and will help guide your decisions about treatment options and quality-of-life issues.

We are presently treating several pets with Chemotherapy and their owners are reporting a very high quality of life and are extremely satisfied with their pet's treatment.
