Affordable Cancer Diagnosis & Treatments
Cancer will touch 1 in 4 of our beloved pets. In fact, cancer accounts for half the deaths in pets over the age of 10 years. At Hurricane Animal Hospital we no longer view cancer as the end of quality living. The most effective treatment of any disease is early diagnosis, and that’s just as true for cancer as any other condition. We recommend annual blood screening to monitor organ function for all pets starting at 7 years of age. These early detection screenings are our first line defense to most all diseases in pets. We also perform complete examinations on our patients every visit and want to see them AT LEAST once a year for this exam up until age seven and then every 6 months. Cancer can affect any area of the body and any body system. In dogs and cats, cancers are most common in the skin, lymph nodes, gastrointestinal tract, blood, and/or bone.
Any new lump or bump or swelling
Difficulty going to the bathroom

Any change in an existing lump or bump

Our comprehensive cancer care focuses on quality of life. Our patient-specific protocols include methods to ensure any treatments we implement do not compromise your pet's desire to eat, play, love and live. LIVING with cancer is our focus, rather than concerning ourselves with just treating cancer.
We are with you every step!
Our veterinarians work with veterinary oncologists, and together we develop the best plan of attack against the cancer. We formulate plans that take into consideration prognosis, convenience, comfort and concurrent medical issues your pet may have. We are with you every step of the way. We monitor your pet's progress, any side effects of the treatment and address all of your concerns. We understand the emotional impact of cancer and we are committed to helping you navigate the options for your pet.
