What will my Vet do if he suspects cancer?

If cancer is suspected, the Vet often takes a biopsy to evaluate the malignancy and type of cancer. To get more information about the tumor size, to assess the presence of metastases, and to check the general health status of the animal, other tests are performed, like a blood check, radiography, ultrasound, or sometimes computed tomography. The choice of therapy will depend on these results, but also on other factors like the pet's character and the owner's willingness to comply with the time, logistic, financial and psychological requirements of the particular therapy.
