The Oncology team see patients diagnosed with neoplastic diseases of all kinds for investigation and further management.

Each patient is different, and a lot of care is taken to listen to the owner and involve them closely in all the decisions regarding their pet’s care. We perform diagnostic and staging procedures, such as CT, MRI or ultrasound scans, with ultrasound- guided biopsies and fine needle aspirate samples as required.

Some patients require endoscopy or rhinoscopy to assess them fully. A number of patients will have a diagnosis prior to arrival, and extensive diagnostic tests are not required for every patient.
