Cancer Treatment

Dogs and Cancer

Dogs can be affected by many of the same health issues that effect people. Just as in humans, not all diseases have to be fatal or even particularly painful. Cancer in all it’s varied forms is one of these health issues.

Dogs particularly can be affected by several types of cancer depending on sex, breed and age; including breast cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, osteosarcoma (OSA), prostate cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid cancer, tonsillar cancer, and transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.

We use a wide variety of cancer fighting strategies. We customize the protocol for each individual. These strategies may include traditional and nontraditional chemotherapy, surgery, topical treatments, and freezing.

Chemotherapy and your Pet

Chemo is different in pets vs. people. Most pets do very well on chemo therapy. Their hair doesn’t fall out, and they rarely get sick. Pain control is paramount. We want our patients to be comfortable throughout their treatment and in their remission. We feel as though nutrition is very important also. We recommend various diets, commercial and homemade, and a variety of antioxidant and nutritional supplements. The important thing is that we build each program for the individual pet and their loved ones.

Take both my pets here. The doctors are amazing! They genuinely care and show compassion toward my fur babies. They go over every detail of my visit and answer all of my concerns. I never leave with a question unanswered. I highly recommend Dr. Joel for feline friends.

If I could give this office 6 stars, I would! I moved to Ohio last year and couldn’t have chosen a better vet to take my dog to. Dr. Jacob is the absolute best! He clearly has a genuine sense of care and compassion for all animals. He answers all my questions honestly and it truly feels like he considers his patients as his own pets. The lodging/boarding here is also amazing! I don’t think my dog wanted to come home😄 Highly, highly recommend!

I left my cat in the Tipp to tail resort area for over a week while I was out of the state and he loved it! It was also very reasonably priced and I was able to get a reservation easily. I would definitely take him again.
