Cancer Patient Protocol
Main Street Vet has a 14 point cancer protocol that needs to be discussed with every client. Single tumours we remove surgically and we recommend histology. Multiple tumours and malignancies need to be treated differently, especially lymphosarcomas, bone cancers, inoperable tumours. etc. One has to ask the questions, "What were the contributing causes to this cancer?" "Why didn't the immune system knock out the cancerous cells?" "What can be done to turn things around?" The causes or predisposing factors need to be addressed, a treatment plan implemented, and outcomes discussed. The earlier we see these patients, the better. Multi modal treatment approaches work best. Every patient responds differently and we cannot guarantee success. We have seen some incredible successes.
