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.

We love taking our dog to get groomed here. They are always super friendly and do an amazing job. Our dog Gracie is never scared to go get groomed. They take amazing care of your pet and it’s truly a great value for your money. I always recommend them when I can!

We took our German Shepherd, that is less than social, as a new patient. We have struggled trying to get an ear problem improved. Dr. Emily Benedict was awesome. She was patient and spent a lot of time with us explaining everything. We ended up having a minor surgery and it ended up being a little bit beyond closing time. We were never rushed by the staff. This was a much better experience for our pet and us than we were having at our last vet. This is a very nice large facility with drinks and snacks for us humans. I can highly recommend not only Dr. Benedict but the entire staff
