Chemotherapy cases

As veterinarians, we often wish we had more to offer our patients with cancer, especially when their owners for whatever reason are not able to take advantage of available referral services.

The answer... come join us in the Piney Woods of East Texas for a weekend of "Practical Oncology." We will cover the cancers most commonly seen in small animal practice, focusing on diagnosis and treatment in the trenches, as well as what we hope to gain for our patients and their owners by referring to a specialist. We will spend time discussing the how-to's of chemotherapy, adjustments to the chemo plan when our patient does not behave as expected, and rescue therapy.
