Cancer is a disease that can strike even the healthiest of humans or animals. The good news is that it is treatable.
Our Lexington vets at Bluegrass Veterinary Specialists + Animal Emergency are dedicated to providing cancer care and support for pets and their owners. We'll work with your primary care veterinarian to provide the best care possible.
We will discuss the disease, staging (additional diagnostics), treatment options, and prognosis with you and your pet after reviewing their medical history.
Staging (Additional Diagnostics)
After a cancer diagnosis, additional diagnostic testing can help to determine the extent of cancer in the body. This allows us to update treatment options and better predict prognosis.
When staging is complete, our team of vets will discuss all the appropriate treatment options. Cancer can be treated by several different therapies or combinations of treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies, or palliative care when appropriate.
