As pet owners and caregivers ourselves, we all understand what a diagnosis of cancer can mean to our clients and our families. Luckily, veterinary oncology has experienced exponential, exciting growth that is enabling improved treatment options and survival times. The Auburn Veterinary Oncology team is very excited about the latest innovations, including cancer vaccine therapy, tyrosine kinase inhibitors, anti-angiogenic therapy and more. We would love to share this information with you!
