Cancer is unfortunately the leading cause of death in adult dogs and cats. Traditional therapies for cancer have primarily consisted of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Although these are still vitally important components of cancer therapy, new innovations have focused on early detection, precision medicine (more targeted to the individuals cancer genetics), AI, and immunotherapy (harnessing the power of the immune system to fight cancer). This presentation will focus on the latest and greatest advancements in veterinary oncology including blood tests for the early detection of cancer, stelfonta intratumoral injections for mast cell tumors, targeted therapies, and the new Hills Oncology Diet.
