In-House Oncology Services
Veterinary Oncology is the sub-specialty of veterinary medicine that deals with cancer diagnosis and treatment in animals. Although cancer can be a life-threatening disease, it is also a treatable disease.
Dr. MJ Hamilton, D.V.M., DACVIM (Onc) has joined the Belle Mead Animal Hospital team as our in-house oncologist. With expert care and advice, he can provide numerous treatment options to extend and improve the quality of your pet’s life. Once the pet is diagnosed, Dr. Hamilton will work closely with the pet owner by evaluating the pet’s health history and discussing the customized treatment options that may include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Dr. Hamilton’s mobile department (Private Veterinary Specialties) allows us to provide veterinary cancer consultations, diagnostic procedures, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy on-site. Full lab services are utilized including blood work, flow cytometry, cytology, and histology. This unique approach gives pets the opportunity to receive treatment at BMAH with the support of the entire team.
PVS does not perform radiation therapy, but they do counsel owners if it is determined the pet is likely to respond to radiation. They can facilitate the pets’ appointment at radiation facilities in the area and provide long-term support and cancer monitoring.
