Cancer Care for your Pet During this Difficult Time

Since we are board-certified in internal medicine, we have extensive training and experience in dealing with cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our goal is to achieve the best quality of life for each pet and side effects are rare with our treatment protocols.

A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating, but you can rest assured that the team at Bluegrass Veterinary Specialists + Animal Emergency has the skill, experience and compassion to help you make the best decisions during a difficult time.

Our internist can make a determination as to whether cancer cells are present, and will meet with you to discuss the course of the disease, additional recommended diagnostics, treatment options, side effects and the ultimate prognosis. We believe one of the keys to successful treatment is clear communication between our team and you—and we’ll ensure you have all the information you need as you work with us to choose the best course of care.  Always know, that your pet’s quality of life is of paramount importance to us.

We will be with you every step of the way and can advise you and provide recommendations as to the optimal course of treatment. Treatment options may include:

  • Medical, which includes chemotherapy, immunotherapy and/or targeted therapy
  • Surgery in close collaboration with our surgical specialists
  • Radiation, the primary treatment in the fight against cancer, often used when surgery is not sufficient
