What Happens When Your Pet Has a Tumor
Our veterinarians will examine the tumor and, if they suspect it is malignant, they will either biopsy it or remove it through pet surgery. Once removed, they will check the tumor for margins to make sure that they have removed all of the cancer. Once the cancer is completely removed, your pet should be free of that cancer.
Depending on the type of tumor, our veterinarians may recommend additional treatment in the form of either chemotherapy or radiation therapy. This is to either ensure that the tumor has not spread to other organs, or treats the cancer if it has spread.
Talk to Our Veterinarians About Tumor Removal and Options for Treatment
In most cases, tumors are surgically removed, as surgery is often the most effective way in combating malignant tumors. However, each pet is different, and you have options for treating your pet when dealing with tumors and cancer. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are not just for eradicating cancer, but are also to provide a quality of life for your pet he would not get without them. There are different options available, so be sure to discuss it with our veterinarians and staff.
