Veterinary Care and particularly care of the cancer patient takes a team approach for optimal outcomes. Although oncologists are central in the coordination of care of the cancer patient, at VSH we emphasize a collaborative team approach for holistic care. The expertise of multiple specialists in critical care, anesthesia, radiology, surgery, nutrition, medical and radiation oncology all have a vital role to play. In addition, coordination with the primary care veterinarian prior to, during and after therapy is essential. Our presentations will highlight the importance of these collaborations.

This event has been RACE approved for 5.5 Continuing Education hours.
