Pet Cancer Treatment from Wisconsin's Best
Our Oncologists and support staff are dedicated to providing compassionate, high-quality and innovate cancer care for your pet.
Cancer treatments in pets can be safe, with few or no side effects, and can provide long-lasting or complete remission. The key to successful cancer treatment is an early diagnosis and effective treatment regime. We make it our top priority to minimize the risk of complications and emphasize the use of anti-nausea, anti-diarrhea and pain control medications to keep your pet as comfortable as possible, and to maintain a good quality of life throughout their treatment.

Testing to determine if metastasis (tumor spread) has occurred. Depending on the type of cancer, this may include x-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, blood work, and bone marrow aspirations/biopsy.
These are special stains and advanced testing that help to more specifically identify the type of cancer present and in some cases may be prognostic.
Administration of drugs to combat cancer while maintaining a good quality of life for the pet.
Vaccine treatment for melanomas.
Radiation therapy is a treatment modality frequently employed to treat cancer isolated to one location. At your pet’s oncology appointment, we can discuss how radiation therapy could help your pet.
Often, we will discuss therapies with you that focus on maintaining a good quality of life. These could include medications to treat pain, nausea, diarrhea, or other secondary affects from the cancer. In addition, we often will discuss your pet’s nutrition and, when indicated, we may suggest holistic medications.
WVRC offers a number of clinical trials that may provide some financial and treatment incentives. Trials offer a way to treat your pet’s cancer while hopefully improving the outlook for future pets with cancer. If you are interested in learning if your pet qualifies for enrollment in one of our clinical trials, you can call the Oncology service or make an appointment to speak with one of our oncologists.
