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.
The CVS Angel Care Cancer Center has vertinarians with specialty skills on staff. We have three emergency/critical care specialists specially trained to support the cancer patient in urgent care situations, four internal medicine/medical oncology specialists, and three cancer surgery specialists. ACCC facilities feature full-service in-house clinical laboratories, on-site pharmacies, surgical suites, and separate ICU and temperature-controlled wards with soft, comfortable bedding. The facilities boast state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, including color-flow Doppler ultrasound, laparoscopy, video endoscopy, arthroscopy and the West Coast's only functioning hyperbaric oxygen chamber for animals. ACCC features special visitation rooms so animals can spend quality private time with their human families in a quiet and relaxing environment.
Current Clinical Trials In Progress:
Study Title: Voyager, a non-invasive anti-cancer medical device. Voyager emits specific low level radio frequency energy that blocks cancer cells from dividing by blocking the dis-assembly of microtubule, leading to aberration, multi-nucleation and interruption of mitotic spindle activity during cell division, at metaphase
Eligibility: All dogs in good health with confirmed maligancies
Hypothesis: We hypothesize that Voyager is safe and effective for the treatment of cancer in animals
Financial Obligations: Partial Financial Support
