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 absolutely LOVE Tipp City Vet! All of the staff are professional and friendly, always happy to see us and my girl, Ollie! I have been bringing Ollie here for care for about 2 years and always had a wonderful experience. They are thorough and make sure you feel at ease about your pet.
About two months ago, we started bringing my girl here for doggy daycare once or twice a week and she loves it! She has a chance to get all her Aussie energy out while I'm at work. She's always so happy when I pick her up!!
My family has also utilized their lodging services several times. You can board your pets separately or together. They offer extra play sessions, bathing, etc. And if you're still worried about your pet, you can text their lodging phone number and they will send you pictures of your pet! Great for nervous Dog Moms like me!
Can't say enough good things!

Cannot say enough about Dr. Mathias and his whole team of professionals! Years ago I had a sick cat that other vets said they couldn't save. I brought him to Dr. Mathias and he was able to treat him. He lived another happy and healthy 10 yrs! I now have a dog and live south of town, but still make the trip to Tipp City, as I wouldn't trust anyone else with her care!
