Your pet’s health and comfort
The oncology department strives to follow the highest safety standards for patient care in an effort to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Our attention is given to one patient at a time to ensure our team is focused. When a pet is being treated with chemotherapy, every dose is checked by two different staff members prior to administration. Proper patient care is a top priority for our team during treatments and consultation sessions.
Our IV chemotherapy treatments are given through temporary IV catheters, not via a direct needle or butterfly catheters; this technique helps us achieve safer treatments. Our state-of-the-art chemotherapy suite is a dedicated area for treating pets with cancer.
When a pet is diagnosed with cancer owners can feel heartbroken, devastated and even terrified. The path forward starts with a sit-down consultation so we can answer your questions as well as discuss treatment options, your pet’s individual prognosis and a quality of life plan.
Quality of life is a top priority for everyone. We understand you are interested in the best life possible for your pet and strive to help you achieve this. With each visit, our team works with pet owners to achieve this goal. No treatment protocol is set in stone, with each appointment we work with owners to ensure the quality of life is being achieved or improved.
Our department was designed to be a comfortable environment for everyone. The department is quiet, has ample natural lighting and its own ventilation systems. We utilize non-slip surfaces for our exam tables and flooring to help pets feel secure. Patients are not left in cages. We treat one patient at a time, therefore it is rare for any patient to spend time in a cage. When a pet does have an extended stay with us they are always within a few feet of us.
Our oncology department is here to provide consistent quality care. Your pet will likely have the same nurses and the same oncologist every visit. This consistency allows us to know your pet better and provide a higher level of care.
