Small animal oncology is a rapidly evolving field and oncology represents a key area for veterinary practitioners.

When a dog or cat is diagnosed with cancer, owners are very concerned for their animal and their expectations for effective care are high. Due to a growing interest in veterinary oncology and the owners’ wishes to treat their pets, more and more treatment options are becoming available. Choosing correctly from a variety of therapeutic options can understandably be daunting and can also significantly alter prognosis. Therefore, a good understanding on possible treatment options, their indications and adverse events is a necessity.

This course aims to provide you with a broader knowledge on available treatment options for different types of cancer in dogs and cats. It will focus on outlining chemotherapy protocols and its alternatives, such as metronomic chemotherapy, use of tyrosine kinase inhibitors or immunotherapy, as well as their limitations. It will further discuss indications for specific treatment protocols, how to use them appropriately and how to monitor the patient correctly throughout a course of therapy. You will also have the opportunity to share and discuss cases that you have managed, with your tutor and fellow participants.

We will look at:
– Classic chemotherapy protocols for a variety of common tumour types, metronomic chemotherapy, tyrosine kinase inhibitors, immunotherapy
– Indications for medical treatment options
– Monitoring for adverse events and how to deal with them
