There are as many treatments for cancer as there are types and stages of the disease. It can be beyond confusing for pet owners to muddle through all of the information that they are given.
Now, a free website created by board-certified veterinary oncologists, vetCARES.com, offers pet owners information on treatment options, care and even printable handouts on different types of cancer. Another plus: A cancer dictionary that spells out medical terminology.
Dr. Beth Overley, DVM and Dr. Jennifer Baez, DVM, both board-certified veterinary oncologists created the site to help pet owners navigate through the process of diagnosis and treatment.
Offering an honest overview of topics, like quality of life issues, how nutrition plays a role in how cancer patients fare during treatment and understanding how pets exhibit pain, the resource is a powerful tool for pet owners.
