We are a leading, internationally recognised centre for veterinary oncology, offering some of the most advanced cancer treatments available for dogs and cats. Our team treats and manages a broad range of oncological problems and specialist nurses and technologists have access to the latest equipment to ensure a speedy and accurate diagnosis.
Our veterinary oncologists provide a wide range of chemotherapeutics and novel cancer treatments. These include molecular targeted therapy for mast cell tumours, metronomic therapy for solid advanced tumours and vaccination for dogs with oral malignant melanoma.
We have expertise in new delivery systems, such as implantable pleural catheters for intrathoracic chemotherapy. In collaboration with our interventional radiology team we can place stents in dogs with obstruction secondary to urinary tract cancer.
The most advanced imaging techniques and image-guided sampling allows us to provide a definitive diagnosis and accurate assessment of the extension of the disease, however challenging the case is.
A multimodality approach
The team at Queen Mother Hospital for Animals provides a multimodality approach to cancer treatment, combining surgery and medical anticancer therapy. We are involved with clinical trials with new anticancer drugs with a view to improving the patient outcome.
