Pet Cancer Awareness Month is observed each May. Its purpose is to inform pet owners about pet cancer, treatment options, the latest on pet cancer research and how to support it. If caught early enough, half of all pet cancer cases could be cured. (http://www.fetchacure.org/resource-library/faq/)
At Miami Veterinary Specialists, we understand that having a pet diagnosed with cancer can be an overwhelming experience. We are here to help pet owners discover different options, to offer viable treatments and therapy that can alleviate their pet’s symptoms, eradicate the disease and/or improve their pet’s quality of life.
