Soft Tissue Surgery and Cancer Treatment

Just as in human healthcare, dogs and cats do succumb to a variety of ailments ranging from airway diseases to cancers.

Like us, pets have urinary bladders and gallbladders. At Leshem Veterinary Surgery, we are skilled to treat many soft tissue related surgical problems.

We are especially proud to be partnered with Vetivax. Vetivax is an innovative group at the University of Connecticut medical facility. Their technology allows us to treat so many more types of cancers that we didn’t believe we could care for in years past. This is not chemo or radiation therapy. Vetivax uses the patient’s own cells to develop a specific vaccine to fight their particular cancer. It allows us to become leaders in cancer surgery and cancer management.
