The Oncology/Hematology Service at the Veterinary Medical Center at Ohio State provides comprehensive diagnostics and treatment for companion animals with cancer and hematologic diseases.
Patient visits are by appointment only.
Clients who are visiting the Oncology Service for the first time with their pet should expect to spend several hours or more with us. This is due to the fact that many of our first-time patients require diagnostic tests that either have to be scheduled with other services in the medical center, such as radiographs and ultrasounds, or take time to obtain the results, such as blood tests.
The Veterinary Medical Center at Ohio State University has numerous diagnostic capabilities that are utilized by the Oncology Service on a regular basis. These include computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), immunohistochemistry, and flow cytometry, among others.
The Oncology/Hematology Service treats many types of cancer. Some of the most common are lymphoma, osteosarcoma, transitional cell carcinoma, mammary gland carcinoma, mast cell tumor, melanoma, fibrosarcoma and leukemia, among others. We also evaluate and treat patients with hematologic diseases such as immune-mediated anemia, immune-mediated thrombocytopenia, and bone marrow disorders.
Payment is expected at the time of your visit. Please read our payment policy for complete information.
