For pets who have not yet received a diagnosis, NPVSG will diagnose and then refer the owner to an oncologist for consult and staging before proceeding. Our advanced imaging equipment allows us to get a better look at organs, tissues and bones. When necessary, we can also perform surgical biopsies on delicate areas, such as a bone biopsy. These procedures may require an extended and careful recovery for the pet. We’ll walk owners through the process and provide detailed instructions to take home. We encourage pet owners to reach out to us with any questions they have at any stage.
