Cancer Treatment

Cancer is a term analogous with an overgrowth of abnormal cells in the body.

Cancer can be of any cell type, in any organ, and can affect an animal of any age. Unfortunately cancer is the leading cause of death in all adult dogs & cats. Ark Animal Hospital strives to offer more options for both the diagnosis of cancer and treatment. At Ark we aim to diagnosis cancer early through the use of:

  • Nose to tail physical exams
  • Wellness senior bloodwork
  • Radiographs
  • Comprehensive ultrasound
  • NuQ cancer screening (learn more from and their reference guide)

Earlier diagnosis of cancer means more treatment options.

When it comes time to discuss cancer therapies or palliative comfort, Ark is available to help by creating individualized treatment for your pet options include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Surgical removal or biopsy
  • Non-surgical biopsies
  • Palliative care and pain management
