Cancer is a common disease in pets and one of the main causes of death. Over the past decade, our knowledge of cancer in animals has increased rapidly, and today several treatment options exist to treat canine and feline cancer patients.

There will be lots of interactive and case oriented work using a systematic approach to the cancer patient. This includes recognizing symptoms, interpreting radiographic & cytological findings, choosing appropriate staging procedures and formulating a therapeutic plan.
