Veterinary Oncology and Hospice Care

There is a natural relationship between veterinary oncology & hospice care. No matter which treatment options are elected or declined for a pet with cancer, the inevitability of death is present.

Can we change our minds about intervention (either for or against) for a pet with cancer? What if we are in the middle of treatment? Where can my regular veterinarian get more information about my pet’s cancer? How & where do we want our pets to spend their final moments?
