Pet Cancer Treatment in Schertz TX

pet cancer treatment

Just like for any other member of your family, a diagnosis of pet cancer can bring a flood of emotions and concerns. Schertz Animal Hospital understands the overwhelming nature of this kind of news and will partner with you to determine the best course of action for your pet.

The veterinarians of Schertz Animal Hospital have treated a number of different types of pet cancers, including lymphosarcomas, fibrosacromas, histocytoma, and more. There have been many new treatments made available for pets in recent years, and our veterinarians and staff have participated in numerous continuing education trainings to remain abreast of the current best practices.

Pet Surgery

Depending on the type of cancer being treated, your pet may undergo surgery to remove a cancerous mass. Our veterinarians are experienced surgeons who understand how to adjust surgical procedures to accommodate patients whose systems are under stress.

All of our surgical patients are carefully monitored using state-of-the-art technology, and our post-operative recovery process involves one of our technicians sitting with the pet on his or her lap and not leaving his or her side until the recovering pet can sit on its own and vital statistics have returned to normal.

Veterinary Chemotherapy

As advances in treatments and chemotherapy options have become more available to people, they have also become available to pets. Fortunately, pets tend to respond even better than humans do to the same kinds of chemotherapy and they typically do not have the same side effects like hair loss and nausea.

Treatments vary according to the type of cancer being treated, the pet’s condition, breed, and age, but it is fairly common to have weekly medications, blood work, and checkups.

Pet Cancer Symptoms

While the following symptoms are not a definite sign that a pet has cancer, if you notice these in your pet, he or she should be seen and evaluated to determine what is causing the symptoms:

Any time you have questions about your pet’s health, please contact us and speak with one of Schertz Animal Hospital’s compassionate and knowledgeable staff.
