PetCure Oncology at VRIC – Clifton, NJ
In the New York City area and northern New Jersey, PetCure Oncology has partnered with Veterinary Radiosurgery and Imaging Center (VRIC), which was created as the first veterinary-only, independent, cross-sectional imaging and radiation treatment center in the world. Together, PetCure Oncology and VRIC provide advanced cancer treatment, including stereotactic radiation (SRS/SRT) and imaging to dogs and cats.
Not only has the center treated thousands of patients, it has become a vital educational resource for veterinarians in the application of cross-sectional imaging, including MRI and CT, and advanced radiation cancer treatment. The center pioneered treatment protocols for the application of radiation treatment and cross-sectional imaging.
