Advanced Cancer Care for Pets in Newtown

Cancer is a disease that has the ability to affect both healthy people and pets. The good news is that if cancer is spotted early in cats and dogs they have the chance to be treated with a number of advanced methods.

Our Newtown veterinary oncologist Jennifer McDaniel, DVM, leads the Oncology services at Newtown Veterinary Specialists. Upon referral to the oncology services at our hospital, your pet’s full medical history and diagnostics will be reviewed by Dr. McDaniel and her team.

Your companion will receive a thorough physical exam. Based on your companion’s diagnosis and history, Dr. McDaniel will discuss if additional diagnostic tests are recommended.

Additional Diagnostics

After your pet has been diagnosed with cancer, additional diagnostic testing might be recommended to help determine the extent of cancer in the body, which would allow us to optimize treatment options and better predict prognosis.

At Newtown Veterinary Specialists our vets offer cutting-edge diagnostic services for the most accurate diagnosis and treatment possible. 

Treatment Options

When staging is complete, our oncology team will talk to you about the appropriate options for treatment. Cancer can be treated by several different therapies or combinations of treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies, or palliative care when necessary.

 If cancer therapy is not pursued the oncology team can also help maintain your pet's comfort and quality of life as well as help with end-of-life decisions.
