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."
Your dog may be eligible to enter this study if he or she has a measurable tumor, is in good health otherwise, and if you are willing to visit one of our three Angel Care Cancer Centers for weekly evaluations and assessments. Our centers are located in Murrieta, Carlsbad and Ontario California. For more information on how your dog can enter the Voyager Cancer Treatment Trial:

CARLSBAD, Calif. -- A canine cancer facility in Carlsbad is conducting a new study that could potentially be a game-changer when it comes to treating pets and eventually humans. “It has not been done,” said Oncologist and Internist Dr. Greg Ogilvie who is also Director of the Angel Care Cancer Center. “It’s a new area of research that is exciting and we hope will develop not only benefits for animals with cancer but also people.”
Inclusion Criteria: Clinically healthy dogs with palpable, measurable cyto- or histologically confirmed malignancy and acceptable recent chest radiographs and blood work. Study will cover costs of each drug signal therapy delivered by a device that is placed over the palpable 1-6 cm tumor and all in-hospital rechecks and restaging at CVS.
A few weeks back, a black-and-white terrier mix named Chance entered a clinical trial for a drug that may offer a completely new way to combat cancer—not only in dogs, but in people, too. The drug, made by San Diego-based Genelux, uses a genetically engineered virus to annihilate tumor cells. Genelux made two different versions of the drug and is now testing one in people and other in dogs, as part of a wide-ranging research strategy designed to yield cutting-edge cancer treatments for both man and man’s best friend. Why dogs? “Cancer as a
California Veterinary Specialist continues to work with medical industry partners to help create new therapies for the treatment of our companion animal family members. We have recently launched a Phase II double blind placebo controlled clinical trial targeting canine lipomas. The hypothesis is that an injection of Cl histolyticum purified collagenase (enzyme) will cause a rapid and durable reduc
