Common Conditions & Procedures

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.

What to Expect

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 take time to obtain the results, such as blood tests, or have to be scheduled with other services in the medical center, such as radiographs and ultrasounds.

Special Equipment & Technology

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.
