Emotionally Hijacked by Cancer

David & Cody

One of the biggest challenges The Veterinary Cancer Center staff face in treating cancer is that the general public assumes that cancer treatment is the same in people and pets. Witnessing a friend or a family member undergoing cancer treatment, even watching a TV episode of “House”, the most optimistic person is aware of the host of side effects experienced by human cancer patients. Pet owners, already emotionally spinning from the diagnosis of cancer in their pets, approach the veterinary oncology specialist with preconceived, inaccurate assumptions about cancer treatment in pets.
