Oncology

Last changed: 13 July 2015

Tumour diseases At the University Animal Hospital, we conduct highly specialised treatment of dogs and cats with tumours. At the oncology clinic, vets specialising in oncology are available 2-3 days a week. We offer both advanced surgical treatment and several kinds of cytostatic therapy.

Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for dogs and cats with tumours, both during and after treatment. By having a high level of expertise, we make sure that our diagnoses are acurate, and we provide an individual prognosis for each patient. In some cases it is not possible to treat the tumour without causing the animal to suffer. If this is the case, we will not recommend treatment.

At the hospital, we conduct ongoing clinical research into the treatment of tumours. This means that we can sometimes offer our patients the opportunity to take part in trials involving new therapies.
