Fact Sheet

The California Veterinary Specialists (CVS) Angel Care Cancer Center (ACCC) for Animals, founded in 2003, is a center of hope, compassion and healing. We offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary clinical cancer center that brings together veterinarians from all specialty groups-including internal medicine; radiation oncology and diagnostic imaging; surgical oncology; and emergency and critical care-to provide innovative treatment options for the whole patient. 


Our people make us unique. We provide unparalleled, compassionate care. We don't treat cancer-we treat pets with cancer and provide support for the entire family. Quality of life is our primary concern. Our goal is to do everything possible to win the fight against cancer, while ensuring that the treatment is healing, not hurting. 

Our services are constantly evolving to provide new and better ways to meet the medical needs of our patients while meeting the non-medical needs of our clients-the families of each patient. Our board-certified, highly trained veterinary personnel provide the very best of innovative care that exceeds existing alternatives, employing collaborative services in emergency, critical care, internal medicine, surgery and oncology, as well as integrating natural, complementary and holistic therapies where indicated and effective. 

Our mission is quality of life first-and always.

Care for Cancer Patients and Their "Families"

 

Our goal at the CVS Angel Care Cancer Center is to provide the most up-to-date, compassionate care for pets with cancer while supporting the caregivers who bring them to us. We use the very latest therapies available with the objective of enhancing quality of life, every moment of the day. ACCC also constantly strives to practice the latest advances in chemotherapy, surgery and emergency and critical care services. More specifically, we use: 


Diagnostic Cancer Medicine: Real time, M-mode and color flow ultrasonography (cardiac and abdominal), endoscopy (upper and lower GI, bronchoscopy, rhinoscopy, cystoscopy and vaginoscopy), laparoscopy, bone marrow aspirations and biopsies, diagnostic radiology (x-ray) imaging, including  magnetic resonance imagine (MRI) and PET/CT scans. 

Medical Oncology: Advanced care and diagnostics in endocrinology, gastroenterology, cardiology, nephrology/urology, neurology and hematology, and respiratory medicine, as well as services to combat respiratory and infectious disease. 

Surgical oncology: The surgical team at ACCC provides special surgical expertise in all aspects of cancer surgery, from minor tumor removal to limb sparing surgery to cancer neurosurgery. 

Radiation Oncology: The team of cancer specialists at ACCC works with physicians who are radiation oncologists to provide veterinary specialists with some of the world's most advanced radiation care for animals.
