A ten-part learning series for vets with specialist Rob Foale.
This series aims to provide vets in general practice with an up-to-date review of how to approach and practice medical oncology; predominantly in dogs but with reference to feline oncology where appropriate.
Beginning with a discussion of the optimal clinical approach to patients with neoplasia, how to reach an accurate diagnosis and the importance of clinical staging, the series then moves on to cover the diagnosis and current recommended treatment protocols for lymphoma, leukaemia, myeloma, mast cell tumours and more.
