Treatment Options


Anti-cancer drugs are used to treat lymphomas and related tumours but also as an adjuvant therapy for a number of other highly metastatic cancers. We are happy to treat on a shared- care basis where we give those drugs that require specialist handling.


A two-way discussion between the oncologist and the surgeon can be essential for optimal patient care to ensure the best outcome. Total excision still remains the best way to achieve a local cure. Where this is not possible, planning adjuvant radiotherapy before surgery ensures the optimal approach.


The Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital is one of a small number of UK establishments which can provide on site radiotherapy. Radiation therapy can be used as the primary treatment for intranasal cancers, brain tumours and non-resectable thyroid carcinomas with minimum morbidity. Post-surgical radiation can dramatically improve the local control for a number of tumours that cannot be fully resected. In particular, soft tissue sarcomas on the limbs, mast cell tumours and anal sac carcinoma.

PDT is an excellent alternative to surgery for superficial squamous cell carcinomas of the nasal planum of white faced cats.
