Oncology

Cancer can develop in pets the same way it does in people. Veterinary oncologists at the MSPCA-Angell Boston are specifically trained to provide high-quality, individualized treatments for your pet with cancer. Much like human medicine, our veterinary cancer treatments are tailored to your pet’s diagnosis, condition, and treatment goals. While we employ the same caliber of care people receive, we are mindful of your pet’s quality of life throughout their treatments.

Oncology at Angell Animal Medical Center

Our comprehensive approach toward cancer treatment means we work as a cooperative group, ensuring a holistic approach for each patient. Our team comprises specialty-trained medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and a fellowship-trained surgical oncologist. Our highly skilled chemotherapy nurses safely and compassionately administer treatment in a USP800-compliant chemotherapy suite. Our radiation therapy unit houses a state-of-the-art True Beam Linear Accelerator, which allows us to apply advanced radiation planning and delivery techniques, including Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Stereotactic Radiation Treatment, and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT). Certified radiation therapists coordinate treatments for our radiation patients, and our specialty-trained anesthesia nurses carefully monitor patients.

Our multidisciplinary approach to oncology patients extends to other Angell Animal Medical Center specialty services. Angell is a national leader in many aspects of veterinary patient care. We serve as a referral center for some of the most complex cases in nearly all areas of medicine. Our cancer care team works closely with all specialty areas in the hospital, such as Internal Medicine, Neurology, Anesthesia, Diagnostic Imaging, Pathology, Ophthalmology, and Cardiology, to provide excellent patient care.

While medical intervention is at the forefront of the oncology service, Angell Animal Medical Center also offers resources to support the emotional component of cancer care for a beloved pet. Our Veterinary Social Work service provides support and resources for navigating your pet’s diagnosis, care plan, and even end of life. This service is offered at no cost for pet owners who are pursuing care within the Angell system.

These components make up the comprehensive oncology service at Angell and empower us to provide exceptional team-based cancer care for pets.

To learn more about Angell’s treatment process, watch the videos below highlighting the patient experience with radiation and chemotherapy. You may also refer to our patient FAQs for answers to some more common questions.

Temporary Suspension of Accepting New Oncology Patients

The MSPCA-Angell oncology service has temporarily suspended scheduling new patients as we work to expand our oncology team. While we are booking new patients for radiation therapy, please be aware wait times may be longer than expected due to high patient volume. We ask that you refrain from bringing any newly diagnosed cancer patients through our emergency service; instead, please consider contacting one of the surrounding oncology practices in the Boston area.
