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. It is the mission of the center to offer advanced imaging capability to the general practitioner and specialist alike and act as an extension of the diagnostic armamentarium to improve the lives of the companion animal patient.
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 and advanced cancer treatment. The center pioneered treatment protocols for the application of radiation treatment and cross-sectional imaging.
