Why Animal Cancer Care Specialists?
First and foremost, we are specialists in treating pets with cancer. You want the best for your animal companion, and as pet owners ourselves, we understand the feeling of despair that a cancer diagnosis can bring. Our goal is to educate you about all of the options available for your pet, empowering you to make the right treatment decisions for your pet and family.
What does being a specialist mean?
This means our oncologist has completed additional training and certification beyond veterinary school, similar to the path a physician takes to become a human specialist. Only those veterinarians who have successfully completed an AVMA-accredited residency program, published original research, and passed a series of rigorous examinations in their area of expertise, can call themselves specialists. Specialists are referred to as board-certified or a Diplomate. Because of this, we do not handle routine preventive care such as vaccinations or spay/neuter procedures. Your pet’s primary care veterinarian is best qualified to handle the day-to-day general wellness of your pet. In most cases, your pet’s regular veterinarian will refer you to a specialist if they suspect or have diagnosed your pet with cancer. We work together, giving your pet the best chance at a longer, healthier life.
Quality of life: Unified in our goal to maintain a good quality of life throughout the care process, we aim to make certain your pet receives the most appropriate treatment for their particular situation. Providing you with education, options, and support is what you can expect from us to help you make the best decisions for your pet. We’re in this together.
Convenience: With two locations, Westford, Massachusetts and Windham, NH we see patients from a wide area. Both locations are easy to reach and have ample parking. We can access your pet’s medical records from either location giving you the option to visit the location most convenient for you.
