Greg Ogilvie, founder of the Angel Care Cancer Center at California Veterinary Specialists, has spent his life searching for new and improved cancer treatments for animals and their families. An award-winning, diverse and highly esteemed oncologist and veterinary researcher, Dr. Ogilvie works with a dedicated and highly qualified team of oncologists, oncology nurses and technicians testing the safety and efficacy of groundbreaking cancer treatments on dogs.
Dr. Ogilvie is directing a ground breaking canine clinical trial using a new and revolutionary non-invasive medical device called Voyager. "Voyager is just beginning its voyage as we are beginning the process of identifying the cancers its most effective to treat. It seems to have a broad spectrum of efficacy while being quite safe."
The Voyager results are remarkable. Rapid and durable tumor response has been seen in many patients, resulting in partial and complete remissions. After one week of treatment, Voyager safely eliminated 90% of one patient's malignant mass tumor.
The world class veterinary oncology teams at CVS Angel Care are inviting families to enroll their beloved canine cancer patients in this clinical trials with the firm believe that Voyager therapy can help, without hurting, and that the results of this clinical trial can greatly benefit canine cancer patients and eventually people who have similar cancers. "Our whole passion here at CVS Angel Care is being able to identify that which can bring help, compassion and hope to animals with cancer not just for our own hospital but for the world as a whole."
"When given an opportunity to actually have something that can help their pet, it's very empowering for them to know that they're going to have the opportunity to help their animal with cancer. Being a part of something bigger, being a part of an amazing discovery that will help literally thousands of animals and potentially people with cancer is something that they become very excited about."

The word cancer is as dark and empty as the disease it defines. A diagnosis of cancer often brings with it feelings of overwhelming fear, a spiraling sense of loss of control, and most devastating of all, the loss of hope.
