Is Cancer Surgery Common in Pets?
Yes, veterinary cancer surgery is very common. Cancer is one of the major causes of morbidity in veterinary patients, and surgical removal of tumors is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by vets. In veterinary medicine, surgery is considered the most important component of treatment in dogs and cats with solid tumors because, in many cases, surgical treatment offers the best chance for improving your pet’s quality of life.
How Long Will My Pet Be In the Hospital After Surgery?
The time spent in the animal hospital after cancer surgery will vary from case to case. Your pet will either go home the same day or will need to stay 1-3 nights, depending on their recovery. Your pet will need to be eating, drinking, and able to walk on their own before we can discharge them.
What Is the Goal of My Pet’s Cancer Surgery?
The goal of your pet’s cancer surgery is to control or eliminate cancer in an attempt to improve quality of life. Successful surgical removal of localized cancer cures more of our cancer patients than any other treatment.
What Are the Most Common Reasons for Pet Cancer Surgery?
