Pet Cancer Detection and Treatment
We at Lawrence Veterinary Hospital know the range of feelings accompanying pet ownership and the shock of a cancer diagnosis. It is our goal to provide thorough education and a compassionate diagnostic approach that takes into account your pet’s specific needs and your family treatment goals. Whether that includes surgery and hospice care, recommending home or referral chemotherapy, or discussing different treatment options, we will be here for you every step of the way. We will also work closely with any referral institutions for imaging, oncology or radiation your pet may need, and coordinate care with them as needed.
We understand that this can be an overwhelming experience. Below are some resources that link to vocabulary you may find yourself struggling to understand, as well as addition information about cancer in pets, specifically.

Pet Cardiac Disease and Treatment
In many ways, heart disease in dogs is quite similar to that of people. In cats, heart disease can look very different and can even be difficult to detect and monitor, since some cats can have pronounced heart disease before they have obvious symptoms or even a heart murmur. The first screening and prevention remains to be regular examinations by your veterinarian, to know what is normal in your cat or dog and be able to judge when changes may be occurring. Our expert staff at Lawrence Veterinary Hospital will make diagnostic and monitoring recommendations according to the latest heart care information.

Your pet’s skin is the largest organ in their body, when it is itchy or uncomfortable it can affect all aspects of your pet’s wellbeing. Our team of professionals at Lawrence Veterinary Hospital has a stepwise approach to help your itchy pet, first of all to get them comfortable and then to get to the bottom of the cause. Our goal is for your dog or cat to maintain the best quality of life and health as possible.
With causes as disparate as fleas to food sensitivity, or environmental allergies to autoimmune disease, skin issues can be a twisting process of diagnostic tests and treatment trials. It can be challenging, both for you and your pet, and many conditions can be a matter of management rather than cure. We will be there to answer your questions and put together the best diagnostic and treatment plan to fit your pet’s individual needs.
