With Immunotherapy treatment, the patient’s own immune system is used to attack cancer cells. Animal Emergency & Surgical Care is involved in the most important clinical studies in the world in Immunotherapy, allowing us to offer these NEW treatments to our patients with lymphoma, melanoma, and hard tumors.
Our cancer surgery team, led by board-certified veterinary surgeon Dr. Ray Rudd has vast experience with challenging and delicate cancer removal procedures. Cancer surgery is an integral part of cancer treatment for pets, removing a tumor for a complete cure or reducing tumor or cancer mass to work in coordination with other oncology treatments.
