Combined with surgery, radiation therapy is highly effective for treatment for long term control of certain cancers. Radiation can also be used as a primary treatment to improve quality of life or temporary control of cancer growth. Radiation is a local treatment and requires brief anesthesia episodes for our veterinary patients. The schedule of treatment and side effects vary with the location, tumor type, and goals of treatment. Animal Specialty Center is a leader in the field for veterinary care technology. We offer the most cutting-edge equipment, including the most advanced radiation for pets, the TrueBeam by Varian.
All of us at Animal Specialty Center never forget our primary mission: Keeping people and pets together, while enjoying longer, happier and healthier lives. We look forward to working with you and your primary veterinarian as, together, we continue to expand the horizons of veterinary medicine and provide the best care possible for you and your pet.
