This two-lecture seminar will cover new diagnostic and therapeutic advances in veterinary oncology which we offer proudly at VSEC. Newer treatment options for cancerous diseases help to maintain the VSEC Oncology Service on the cutting edge of oncology care. From new injectable options for canine lymphoma to a new, non-invasive way of delivering therapeutic radiosurgery, this evening offers a review of the treatments and technologies that are offered at very few other locations. Come meet the oncology specialists for the exchange of knowledge in a lecture series, followed by Q&A, and ending with a vault tour of the VSEC Oncology Service’s new Varian Linear Accelerator with intensity-modulated (IMRT) and stereotactic radiation therapy (SRS/SRT) capabilities.
