Combating cancer on every front.
Compassionate and comprehensive cancer diagnosis, treatment, and care are our prime objectives.
The future looks bright
Twenty short years ago, there were few options when a pet was diagnosed with cancer. But today, veterinary cancer treatment continues to make huge advancements, as conditions that were not treatable then, can be sent into remission today. The treatment regimens of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are also much kinder now than they were then (and getting better all the time), which is good news for everyone involved.
While a diagnosis of cancer is both physically and emotionally draining, it is no longer hopeless. In fact, it can be beaten and/or controlled for long periods of time, with a good quality of life, much like many other chronic incurable diseases, and these days it often is. At Paragon Veterinary Referrals we will be there every step of the way, walking you through options for your pet. We will work with your vet to help make sound treatment decisions and compassionately guiding owners through what will likely be a very challenging time.
A multi-pronged attack on cancer
Cancer can be one of the most complex and difficult diseases to diagnose and treat, not to mention emotionally draining on every level for both you and your pet. Our oncology department leads the attack against your pet’s cancer, coming at it from all sides with traditional therapies like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation to more advanced approaches like immunotherapy, gene-therapy and molecular targeted therapy, to provide the best possible outcomes and prognoses.
Quality of life is critical to you, your pet, and to us, which is why we consider both pain management as well as your psychological and social needs when treating your pet’s cancer. In fact, we work with a team for vets, nurses and staff to provide the best possible care for you and your pet.
Our Oncology Team
Paragon Veterinary Referrals was founded on the belief that specialists, family, veterinary surgeons, and pet owners working together can do more for our patients than any of us working alone. That dedication to collaboration burns brightly today throughout Paragon. Our elite Oncology team works side-by-side with you and your primary care vet throughout diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care. When another opinion is needed from an Internal medic, Surgeon, Cardiologist, Criticalist, Anaesthetist, Neurologist, and/or Imager, those colleagues are right across the hall, ready to lend their expertise to help solve your patient’s problems. Compassionate and comprehensive cancer diagnosis, treatment, and care are our prime objectives.
Please give us the opportunity to discuss your pet’s disease process and help you come to a decision about your pet’s future, whether it be to treat or not to treat. If you would like to talk to us about what is possible please ask your vet about referral to Paragon Referrals. We
consider success to be the improvement and/or maintenance of your pet’s quality of life for as long as possible, within the limits that you feel are appropriate for you and your pet.
