The appearance of a tumor is one of the most frequent causes of death of our animals
Tumors are not always masses visible to the naked eye and the symptoms of a neoplastic disease are often non-specific and may include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, lameness, inappetence or anorexia, difficulty urinating/defecating, weight loss.
Numerous treatments in this sense are carried out at the Tergeste Veterinary Clinic in Trieste, specific to the pathology on which to intervene. The clinic’s medical team is at your disposal for any doubts or advice regarding cancer treatments.
At the Tergeste Veterinary Clinic in Trieste, following the identification of the mass of the tumor by the owner, cytological and/or histological examinations are performed to make a diagnosis and, before proceeding with surgery or chemotherapy treatments, the various diagnostic tests (radiography, ultrasound, CT, etc. depending on the type of tumor) and staging (placement of the patient in a clinical stage).
Chemotherapy and treatments
The therapy of the tumors is often localized and therefore surgical or radiotherapy, but in many cases chemotherapy is necessary even after surgery.
In the veterinary treatment of tumors, the priority is to give quality of life to patients, to make them feel better immediately and for as long as possible, therefore the chemotherapies of the Tergeste Veterinary Clinic in Trieste are studied on each specific patient, to minimize side effects using support and maximize the chance of success.
