A Center of Hope. A Center of Compassion. A Center of Healing.
We are a team of compassionate people who offer their specialized knowledge, skills, and expertise to meet the medical needs of each pet as well as the non-medical needs of the individuals who bring their beloved animal to us.
The CVS Angel Care Cancer Center is comprised of four teams:
This team of board certified medical oncologists, internists, cardiologists, and technicians are some of the most experienced and highly trained in the world. They work tirelessly to provide care that is unparalleled. We lead the world in incorporating cutting-edge medical therapy designed to provide enhanced quality of life while controlling or curing cancer with anticancer drugs including molecular therapeutics plus cancer treatment employing new devices or methods to engage the body’s own cancer defense mechanisms.
Radiation Oncology/Diagnostic Imaging
Radiation treatment has proven to be a vital tool for improving the health of a number of cancer patients. This critical aspect of care at the CVS Angel Care Cancer Center is quite unique because it is performed in our own state of the art facilities in Carlsbad, California, and cooperation with regional human radiation oncologists and radiation therapy centers. We are the ONLY center in the world that provides “high tech and high touch” linear accelerator generated radiation therapy with both photon and electron beam radiation, Trilogy based stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and the robotically controlled, computer controlled, Cyberknife stereotactic radiosurgery.
CVS stands ready to diagnose each problem with access to state-of- the-art diagnostics, including computerized tomography, PET/CT, MRI, ultrasound, color flow Doppler, and digital radiology.
Cancer is the most curable of all chronic diseases and surgery is critical in helping to achieve that cure. The best chance for cure is with initial surgery. Therefore, having specially trained surgeons is vital. CVS features an experienced team of highly trained board certified surgeons and surgical nurses who provide kind, compassionate care for each and every surgery patient. The team approach is used to employ the most effective method for curing or controlling cancer: surgery. Indeed, using an integrated approach, we employ the very latest surgical procedures in concert with radiation and medical, surgical procedures.
Emergency and Critical Care
Cancer patients need to have someone standing by day or night, rain or shine, in case the unexpected happens. Fortunately, CVS has a team of the most highly trained specialists in emergency and critical care in the world. If the unexpected happens, we are here for you.
Current Clinical Trial In Progress
Study Title: Voyager, a non-invasive anti-cancer medical device. Voyager emits specific low level radio frequency energy that blocks cancer cells from dividing by blocking the dis-assembly of microtubule, leading to aberration, multi-nucleation and interruption of mitotic spindle activity during cell division, at metaphase
Eligibility: All dogs in good health with confirmed maligancies
Hypothesis: We hypothesize that Voyager is safe and effective for the treatment of cancer in animals
Financial Obligations: Partial Financial Support
