The Oncology Service

Cancer is an important and unfortunately frequent disease in animals. The oncology team is very aware of the difficulties that pet owners and referring veterinarians face when a cancer diagnosis is made. It is important, in such instances, to be able to make an informed decision. Although cancer is the number one cause of naturel death in dogs and cats, recent progress in in veterinary oncology now allows your pet to enjoy a good quality of life with treatment and live longer.
Our team recognises the many challenges it faces in its fight against cancer. Therefore, through our research, we hope to expand our knowledge and improve our ability to better obtain diagnostics and offer the best treatment options.
