Brain Tumor
PetCure Oncology at VRIC (Clifton, NJ)

My husband and I would like to thank the team at PetCure for helping our French Bulldog, Charlie with his brain tumor! The entire staff was attentive to his needs and made sure that he was taken care of before, during and after his treatments. In March when we found out that Charlie unexpectedly had a tumor, it was a very difficult time for all of us, but as soon as we started working with PetCure, we knew that Charlie was in good hands.

Any time we had a question outside of our in-person visits, the team always contacted us to make sure we got the answers we needed. In fact, Dr. Wolfe also sent an email to check in on Charlie to make sure he was doing well and offered her support whenever we needed it, even if it was after work hours – it was a very sweet gesture that meant a lot to us.

We really appreciate everything that PetCure has done for Charlie and we’re extremely happy that we were able to work with such a great team! Thank you again, PetCure!

Anal Sac Adenocarcinoma
PetCure Oncology at VRIC (Clifton, NJ)

After being diagnosed with adenocarcinoma, our oncologist recommended stereotactic radiosurgery at PetCure Oncology at VRIC. The facility is located more than 2 hours from where we live on the east end of Long Island, but soon after arriving, we realized that bringing Ava (our 9 year old boxer) here was the best decision we could have made.

Dr. Pohlmann, an outstanding radiation oncologist, quickly made us feel we were in the right hands after giving an extremely thorough evaluation of Ava’s CT, explaining everything from her scan through treatment and expectations during recovery.

Shivani Narayanan, radiation therapist extraordinaire, provided us with a very detailed explanation of the entire treatment process, methodically describing each step so we could understand how the cancer cells would be targeted.

JoAnna at reception had a genuine and warm welcome for us every time we arrived for our appointment, and Sam & Luz delivered Ava safely back to us with a smile and encouragement after each session. All this happened under the attentive watch and compassionate care of Dr. Wolfe.

We’re truly grateful to the team at VRIC for their superior expertise and sincere concern for Ava’s health—they’re a group of exceptional veterinary professionals!

PetCure Oncology at PVSEC (Pittsburgh, PA)

SHOC is a hero and survivor! I was told [he had] 3 days to weeks and now we are at 4 months and going strong after palliative radiation... and chemo with some holistic care. I am blessed we did this! He acts like he is 5 again and so comfortable. They were so compassionate and Shoc loved going to see them. I would highly advise this. Shoc never had any side effects at all.

Today, I got word that his lymph nodes and tumor have shrunk since treatment! Rock On SHOC ! Forever grateful to PetCure!!!!

Nasal Carcinoma
PetCure Oncology at VRIC (Clifton, NJ)

I cannot say enough about PetCure Oncology. They got us a rush appointment when other facilities were making us wait weeks. They understood the seriousness of our situation, calmed us down, and provided real-time solutions. PetCure Oncology has given us the one thing that we could not give Bruce, which is more time.

Honestly- the ENTIRE STAFF was wonderful. Every single person greeted us and Bruce every morning and congratulated him when he finished treatment. This facility understood the severity of a bad situation and did everything in their power to make it better for us and for Bruce.

Brain Tumor
Cincinnati, OH

In September 2016, our 15-year old Italian Greyhound "Tag" had a massive seizure that almost ended his life had it not been for our local pet emergency clinic. Upon a CT scan, our vet specialist identified a small brain tumor and estimated Tag had 6-weeks to live without treatment.

We were given a few options for surgery, but they were entirely too evasive. She mentioned Petcure Oncology in Cincinnati, OH as an option, so we decided to investigate further. After a few phone calls to the clinic, we decided to move forward with the procedure.

Tag completed the third treatment on Sept 29, 2016 and was discharged. On December 3, 2017 Tag achieved his 16th birthday which would have not been possible without Petcure Oncology.

He is still going strong over a year later after the procedure and are confident that his life has been extended.

Throughout the entire process, the staff was extremely professional and always took the time to keep us informed of the status. We are grateful for this clinic and their expertise. Would definitely use them again. Thanks again.

Nasal Tumor
PetCure Oncology at PVSEC (Pittsburgh, PA)

How do I begin to express my gratitude to PetCure and their awesome staff in Pittsburgh!?

When our 9 1/2 yr old golden retriever Nikko was diagnosed with a nasal cancer tumor, I immediately started searching online for more information regarding his horrible disease. It’s unbelievable because one of the first sites I came across was a video on stereotactic radiation and nasal tumors! After more research I knew this was going to be our first choice for treatment as long as Nikko was a candidate,

I am happy to report that 3 months after his SRS treatment, Nikko’s tumor has shrunk significantly! Yay Nikko! Every extra day with him is a gift and a blessing and we look forward to the additional time we have to spend with him. Thank you PetCure! Can’t wait to update this review in another 6-12 months!

Spinal Tumor
PetCure Oncology at Care Center (Cincinnati, OH)

PetCure Oncology’s extensive knowledge and sense of urgency to help were what impressed me the most. We went from grieving to hopeful.

When we felt like all hope was gone, we were given an option we thought we never had. PetCure gave us hope when no one else would.

Brain Tumor (Glioma)
PetCure Oncology at VRIC (Clifton, NJ)

When we were faced with a heartbreaking cancer diagnosis, there was only one place our oncologist felt comfortable sending us. The wonderful people at PetCure were there for us every single step of the way. From the initial phone consultation, to scans & diagnostics, to the cutting edge SRS therapy, they treated us like family.

I am so grateful for the generous amounts of support, patience, and compassion they provided during this stressful time. It truly made all the difference in the world.

Brain Tumor
PetCure Oncology at Care Center (Cincinnati, OH)

We found our angel on earth, Elphie, in 2015 under a car. When we found out shortly after that she had a brain tumor we were destroyed and so lost. We heard about PetCure [but] had no idea how INCREDIBLE the staff and doctors were going to be.

We traveled from Cleveland not knowing what to expect. They took amazing care not only of our beloved cat, but of us as well (and our dog Rollie we brought along)! They made us so comfortable and feel so welcomed. They went above and BEYOND what they needed to and exceeded our expectations greatly. We could not be more grateful. Our gratitude cannot be put into words. The doctors were incredibly competent and the staff is loving and knowledgeable. They were so generous and kind. I cannot speak highly enough about them. I have never seen such veterinary intelligence. Each doctor or staff member we met was qualified to say the very least. They took care of her like she was their own and comforted us like we were family.

[PetCure Oncology at] Care Center gave us more time with our Elphie, time I would never have had. She almost immediately showed signs that the radiation had worked! The following week she was sitting in the sunlight streaming through the window, seemingly able to see much better. She was better. I must have called a million times and asked even more questions than that. Never once was it an issue and I was always treated with such kindness and empathy. For such an awful situation, our hearts shockingly felt so full from these incredible people.

I am so thankful for my extra time with my best friend and I am thankful for the people we met who will ALWAYS hold a place in our hearts. Their kindness and generosity will never be forgotten. I would recommend PetCure at Care Center insistently to anyone unfortunately caring for an animal battling cancer, or just as an all-around incredible hospital with even more incredible people. We love you all and THANK YOU!

Nasal Sarcoma
PetCure Oncology at Lakeshore (Milwaukee, WI)

We felt that we had a good chance of giving her more quality time. The doctors said that the results [could] be 18 months [of additional life]. That's about the rest of her life. If we could offer her this time - [with] quality of life - we were going to do that for her. If I'm going to give my daughter surgery on her knee, I'm going to give Karma radiation therapy. She's part of the family.
