Resources for Pet Owners

After getting a cancer diagnosis, your veterinarian may call upon various specialists to participate in your pet’s care. At NC State, most cancer patients will be referred to see one of our three Oncology Services:

In addition to standard testing and/or treatment, many animal cancer patients may also be eligible to participate in clinical trials. If you have questions about your pet’s eligibility for a clinical trial, please reach out to our clinical research team, and/or ask about it when you meet with one of our veterinarians.
