Cancer in Animals
Animals get cancer and living in the same environment as us human, we can learn a lot from them. In the last 20 years, dogs and cats have become a member of the family and the field of veterinary oncology has made a huge jump in this time and we can now offer the same treatment as humans. In this seminar, we will explore cancer in animals and what we can learn from them as well as how we stage the cancer and give an overview of the therapies that are available for our furry patients.
