Board Certified Cancer Specialist

 

Oncology

acvimLeading the oncology department at FVRC, Dr. Sarah Kraiza, board certified in veterinary oncology, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in pets.

Cancer can be a scary diagnosis for any pet owner.  In past decades, cancer treatment options for pets were limited, and cures often elusive. Today, many types of cancer can be cured if caught early and appropriately treated. For non-curable cancers, a veterinary oncologist can be instrumental in providing cancer treatment options aimed at both slowing down cancer growth and effectively managing any cancer related pain your pet may have.  At FVRC cancer treatment plans are designed to ensure your pet’s comfort and quality of life are maintained.

If cancer is a concern for your pet, FVRC’s oncologist and diverse team of specialists work closely together ensuring that each pet recieves the most effective and comprehensive care possible.
