Veterinary oncology is the study and treatment of cancer in dogs, cats and other exotic and domestic animals. The OVC Oncology Service thrives off of a team-based approach to oncology cases. Their aim is to provide a good quality of life to their patients and to prolong survival. To ensure a varied and effective range of treatment options, multiple collaborations and consultations will occur within a veterinary oncology team. This team consists of a radiation oncologist, surgical oncologist and medical oncologists. Currently, the OVC Oncology Service offers local treatment (surgery and radiation therapy) and systemic treatment (chemotherapy and immunotherapy).
