Oncology is the investigation and management of tumours/cancer. Oncological patients often benefit from the input of Specialists in a number of different disciplines -imagers, medics and surgeons are all typically involved in case management. At Anderson Moores we have Specialists in all of these fields, all with extensive experience in cancer management. Investigation of these cases is often enhanced by the advanced imaging available on site at Anderson Moores. Treatment may involve surgery in our state of the art surgical suite and/or chemotherapy as part of our regular chemotherapy clinic.
As dedicated pet owners we are all devastated when our companions are diagnosed with a serious cancer. Our clinicians are here to inform you and guide you through the various treatment options available for your pet. At no point will there be any pressure on you to pursue a treatment you are not comfortable with.
