Dr Claire Cannon on cancer in pets
Listen to Dr Claire Cannon, oncologist at U-Vet Werribee Animal Hospital, speak to Rob Richardson at WYN FM about cancer in pets, particularly in dogs and cats, the treatment options available and future research and clinical trial opportunities.
Dr Cannon advises that if there is something out of the ordinary with your pet such as lumps and bumps on their skin or body, it is important to get it checked out by a vet.
While there are different cancer treatment options for pets including chemotherapy and surgery, she emphasises that the goal of cancer treatments in pets is so that they can live their normal lifestyle without significant side effects.
