Radiation returns to Perth Veterinary Oncology!

SEP 18

With the collaboration of Dr David Lurie, a Veterinary Radiation Oncologist, our patients can now access radiation in Perth. For appropriate tumours, this can be delivered stereotactically, meaning some patients can have a full treatment in 3 doses. Four patients have had treatment this week and all are going very well. Brain and nasal tumours are the most common cancers treated by radiation in dogs and cats but there are many others that can be suitable.
