Veterinary Highlights: 2016 AAHA Oncology Guidelines for Dogs and Cats

AAHA released 2016 Oncology Guidelines for Dogs and Cats. Guidelines are a good thing, particularly given how fast veterinary medicine evolves.

This resource is to help general vets to navigate through all that's happening in veterinary oncology.

The guidelines outline basic diagnostic tests, staging tests, therapies and treatments as well as client communication.

Guidelines should also help us to understand what to expect. Though any guidelines are only as good as they are being followed. AAHA vaccination guidelines are still being ignored by some vets.

At the end is always up to us to advocate for our dogs.
