Quality of Life
The greatest concern for most pet owners is making sure their pet has a good quality of life after a cancer diagnosis. Throughout your pet’s treatment, the oncologist will help you to ensure your pet’s well-being. While chemotherapy is generally well tolerated by our animal patients, there are very effective medications available to help limit different side effects such as nausea or loss of appetite. Our staff will continue to evaluate your pet and will be available to you by phone or email, so that any symptoms your pet may be having can be managed appropriately. Through this partnership, you and the oncologist can provide your pet with the best care possible.
Ocean State Veterinary Specialists works with your primary care veterinarian to provide specialized and emergency care. Each pet is unique and thus the treatment they receive is tailored to your family member. If your pet was diagnosed with cancer, please speak to your family vet about a referral to OSVS.
