At our Ambler animal hospital, our veterinarians use cutting-edge diagnostics and advanced treatments to provide the best possible oncology care for pets with cancer.
Cancer impacts both humans and animals, and it can strike even the healthiest ones. The good news: at Spring House Animal Hospital, we can treat your pet's cancer with a range of advanced methods.
Dr. Victoria Nelson, VMD, one of our veterinarians in Ambler, has more than 20 years of experience providing care and treatment for pets with cancer, and support for the people who love them.
After reviewing your pet's medical history and diagnosis, we will sit down with you and your pet to discuss the disease, staging (additional diagnostics), treatment options and prognosis.
A board-certified veterinary oncologist has completed extensive training after veterinary school that focuses on oncology (how cancer develops and how to treat it). This training includes an internship and specialized residency, comprehensive exams, and publication requirements to become board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM).
If your pet has been diagnosed with cancer, additional diagnostic testing can help your vet determine the extent of cancer in the body. This allows us to optimize treatment options and better predict prognosis.
Our in-house digital radiology and ultrasound services mean we can offer the most accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
When staging is complete, our veterinarian will discuss all appropriate treatment options, such as different therapies or combinations of treatments. Treatment options for your pet may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, surgery, targeted therapy or palliative care when appropriate.
