Learning your pet has cancer is a scary time, one no pet owner wants to go through. Dr. Bouchard and the staff at Summeridge Animal Clinic are trained to look for any signs or symptoms that may indicate cancer, how to test for a reliable diagnosis, and most importantly how to help you make the best decisions possible regarding your pet's health care.
Cancer is a disease that causes cells to multiply uncontrollably, moving into surrounding tissue and organs. There are numerous kinds of cancers that dogs and cats are susceptible to developing.
