Everyone knows someone who has been affected by the dreaded “C” word. Cancer destroys families of loved ones all too often, and although it seems like we get closer to a cure every day, cancer is still breaking hearts on an all-too-regular basis. When I speak of the heartbreak, it isn’t specific to people. Pets suffer from cancer too, but technology is now allowing veterinarians to fight more types of cancer head on. Earlier this year I had the pleasure of touring the PetCure Oncology center in Arizona. Did you know that there’s an entire program dedicated to treating cancer in your dogs and cats? PetCure Oncology partners with specialty veterinary practices across the country to offer stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and although it’s a fairly new concept for pets, it’s proven effective in saving lives.
