Let’s find the right treatment option. Every pet is different, and we work hard to create
a customized treatment plan for your furry family member.

Chemotherapy icon
Our goal during pet cancer treatment services is to ensure the highest quality of life possible for every pet undergoing treatment. Chemotherapy in animals is given at palliative doses, compared to humans, which receive curative intent dosing. This difference results in most pets tolerating chemotherapy well; adverse reactions are only reported by owners in 10%-15% of pets.

We encourage owners to share their concerns and observations with us at each visit prior to treatment. This feedback provides valuable information on how a patient feels during their chemotherapy regimen.

Quality of life icon
Quality Of Life Enhancement

Cancer is treatable; we aim to improve patient’s lives via our care, allowing them to have an improved and extended quality of life. We utilize the latest techniques in pain control, nausea prevention, and appetite support.

Client education and support icon
Client Education And Support
During treatment, we aim to keep pet owners updated on how their pet is doing and guide them through treatment decisions. Facing cancer can be daunting for many people. We aim to support owners as much as possible so they can make the best possible decisions for their pets.
Treatment Protocols icon
Multi-Modality Treatment Protocols
Every cancer is treated differently. During your consultation, we’ll discuss which treatment options are available and what combinations apply to your pet. When planning treatment, we consider what owners want for their pets. This personalized approach helps us create a treatment plan custom to your pet.
Radio therapy icon
Consultation For Radiation Therapy
PVS does not perform radiation therapy. However, we counsel owners on which cancers will likely respond to radiation. We can also facilitate your pets’ appointments at radiation facilities in the area. After radiation is completed, we provide long-term support and cancer monitoring.
Pain management icon
Pain Management And Palliative Care
Pain control is our top priority and a significant concern for most owners. During each visit, we work hard to address any pain concerns owners have or any pain noted in a patient. Pain control is essential to a good quality of life.
Tumor icon
Genetic Tumor Testing
We now offer Vidium Search Light DNA tumor testing for dogs. This genetic test is provided to further evaluate pet tumors for genetic mutations, which we may be able to target with compounded human medications for personalized therapy. This testing is elected by owners who want advanced cancer care and those who are open to trying novel therapies with human medicines. For some pets, these human medications can target the mutation that may drive an individual cancer to grow and spread.
