Cancer treatment and Management


At Bowen Veterinary Services we have a comprehensive cancer treatment program. We utilize the latest in chemotherapeutic and complementary therapies (which have well documented anecdotal results). In particular we have had wonderful success with lymphoma, salivary adenocarcinoma, malignant histiocystosis and moderation of squamous cell carcinomas. Unlike us, dogs and cats do not appear to suffer the nausea and discomfort associated with chemotherapy. With proper care and monitoring, the majority of patients take their chemotherapeutics easily and have an enhanced quality of life.

The primary purpose of cancer treatment is to prolong life in a happy and comfortable manner. Our patients do not act as if they are ill and enjoy great quality of life for much longer that they would without treatment. A life expectancy of two to three months following diagnosis can often be increased to two or three years with proper care and monitoring.

A number of our cancer patients travel to the Island for their therapies and treatments. Bowen Island provides a quiet and peaceful environment with wonderful accomodation, restaurants, a fitness facilty, hiking trails and secluded beaches. All this is just a 15 minute ferry ride from West Vancouver. A treatment can be scheduled for a Friday or Saturday and you can spend the weekend on the Island with your pet in an unrushed and revitalizing manner.

If your pet is unwell or has been recently diagnosed with cancer we invite you to give us a call and spend a day over here and learn about his or her condition and what is available for treatment.

Client Testimonial

 

To the best Animal Hospital I have ever been to!
I want to take this time to thank you for giving my dog C.J a second chance at life. It was by far the best experience both C.J and I have ever had at a veterinary clinic. It was first-class all the way! Three days after his major surgery he was doing great! Now, six days after his surgery he is better than ever. He is better than his old-self!! He is bringing smiles to my familys' faces again! Thank you Bowen Veterinary Services again. My family and I can't begin to express our gratitude. I drove all the way from Revelstoke because I was told that Bowen Veterinary Services is the best place in British Columbia to get help for my animal, and it was true!
