What to Expect

If your veterinarian has confirmed the diagnosis of cancer in your pet, have he or she call our hospital and discuss your pet’s case with the Radiation Oncologist. Your veterinarian will then provide you with information such as the recommended treatment protocol, the expectations and cost of the treatment and any potential side effects of the therapy. You are then encouraged to contact the Radiation Oncologist to have any additional questions answered and to schedule an appointment for therapy.
