Pet Doctors Hunt for Breakthroughs

Today, many animal owners consider pets to be members of their families and treat them as such. Because of this, there has been an increased focus on pet owners becoming much more informed and proactive when it comes to the health of their four-legged family members. However, advancements in animal healthcare have often lagged behind human advancements – especially when it comes to cancer treatments for pets – leaving veterinarians and pet owners struggling with the lack of promising new options.

In S&P Global’s latest market intelligence report, “Pet doctors hunt for breakthroughs in promising human cancer treatments,” Steven Roy, CEO of VetDC, discusses his company’s innovative approach of adapting discarded human cancer treatments and developing them specifically for use in pets with cancer.

  1. Our Australian Shepard has been diagnosed with lymphoma and is only 3.5 years old. We now have her on Prednisone as a treatment. She seems to be doing well on it, but we would like to look into treating her with your new drug, Tanovea. Do know of any veterinarians in the Western Michigan that is using Tanovea as a treatment for lymphoma?

    • Hello Duane –
      I’m very sorry to hear that your Aussie has been diagnosed with lymphoma. It is a difficult diagnosis to be facing with a beloved family member, and particularly hard when they are so young. I just emailed some information about availability in your area, please feel free to reply by email with any further questions. Thank you.
