Cancer Care for Thornton Pets
Cancer is a disease that affects both humans and our beloved companion animals. The good news is that in many cases, if detected early, the disease can be treated with a number of advanced methods.
At Caring Hands Veterinary Hospital, our vets are committed to providing compassionate care and treatment for pets with cancer, and support for the individuals and families that love them.
Working closely with the network of veterinary specialists in the Thornton and the greater Denver area, we will ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
After reviewing your pet’s medical history and diagnosis we will sit down with you and your pet to discuss the disease, staging (additional diagnostics), treatment options and your pet's prognosis.
Staging (Additional Diagnostics)
After a diagnosis of cancer, additional diagnostic testing can help to determine the extent of cancer in the body, which allows us to optimize treatment options and better predict prognosis.
At Caring Hands Veterinary Hospital, we offer in-house, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging to provide you with an accurate diagnosis quickly so that your pet's cancer treatment can begin as soon as possible.
When staging is complete, your veterinarian will discuss all the appropriate treatment options with you.
Different forms of cancer can be treated by several therapies or combinations of treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies or palliative care when appropriate.
Your Thornton vet wants the very best for you and your pet and will take the time to answer your questions honestly and with compassion and kindness.
