At Southshore Animal Hospital, we understand that cancer is a word no pet owner wants to hear in connection with his or her beloved pet’s health. However, cancer is a diagnosis that seems to have become almost commonplace in today’s society, affecting humans as well as our canine and feline companions.
Fortunately, the treatment of cancer in veterinary medicine has greatly improved in recent years, and safe effective medications have been developed giving your pet the greatest opportunity for recovery. If your pet is diagnosed with cancer, our experienced veterinarians will evaluate your pet’s condition to determine the best treatment for a positive outcome. If our evaluation indicates that surgery or chemotherapy would extend your pet’s life and help provide a good quality of life, we are equipped and qualified to offer those services.
Cancer is not always a terminal disease. As with any disease state, early detection and treatment is important in achieving the best outcome. Yearly wellness exams and blood work can often help uncover certain types of cancer before treatment becomes extensive.
Serving pet owners in Metairie, Jefferson, Kenner, and New Orleans, Louisiana, Southshore Animal Hospital is here to meet all of your pet’s health care needs.
