Thanks to advances in modern medicine, our pets are living longer than ever. Unfortunately, as our pets age, cancer becomes all too common. One in four dogs die of cancer; overall, cancer accounts for almost 50% of disease-related pet deaths each year.
Cancer management is one of Dr. Hedges’ passions. With continued advances in veterinary medicine, cancer is no longer a death sentence; in many cases, a combination of pain management, nutritional management, and surgery/chemotherapy (when applicable) can provide great quality of life for months to years after a cancer diagnosis. If your furry friend has been diagnosed with cancer, Dr. Hedges is happy to work with you to develop a treatment plan that matches your family’s needs and philosophies.
