PetCure Oncology Opens Fourth Location at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists in Wisconsin

Unprecedented access to comprehensive cancer care, including
stereotactic radiosurgery, now available for pets

MILWAUKEE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lakeshore
Veterinary Specialists
, a 24/7 animal emergency and specialty
hospital, is proud to announce the addition of leading-edge radiation
oncology services through a partnership with PetCure
Oncology
at its Glendale, Wisconsin, facility (2100 W. Silver Spring
Drive). As a comprehensive veterinary specialty hospital, Lakeshore has
offered advanced medical oncology treatments to cancer patients for many
years. The partnership with PetCure Oncology allows the team to add
on-site radiation therapy, including a revolutionary new option for pets
called stereotactic
radiosurgery (SRS)
.

Lakeshore is the only private veterinary practice in Wisconsin offering
comprehensive cancer care with SRS for pets.

Although SRS is widely available for treating human cancer patients, it
has just recently become available in the veterinary field. PetCure
Oncology’s national network is the most extensive veterinary
SRS-provider in the country, making the best available cancer care
accessible to the millions of pets diagnosed with cancer each year. SRS
offers significant benefits over conventional radiation therapy (RT) by:

  • Administering treatment with the intent to cure cancer
    rather than just ease symptoms
  • Enabling treatment of some tumors previously considered inoperable
    – including brain, spine or prostate
  • Delivering radiation with sub-millimeter precision in a noninvasive and
    nonsurgical
    manner
  • Minimizing the risks and side effects commonly associated with
    conventional RT
  • Requiring only 1-3 treatment sessions as opposed to 15-21 with
    conventional RT

“Cancer accounts for nearly 50 percent of all disease-related pet deaths
and is the leading cause of death in older dogs and cats,” said
Lakeshore’s board-certified veterinary oncologist, Dr.
Rachel Reiman
. “Historically, treating pets with cancer has been
limited to surgery, chemotherapy and/or conventional radiation therapy.
Offering SRS along with PetCure’s exceptional team is a game-changer,
providing newfound hope in the fight against cancer in pets.”

PetCure Oncology’s emergence as the leader in SRS has been swift. In
just over one year, the progressive cancer care provider has assembled
an elite clinical staff that includes multiple board-certified
veterinary radiation oncologists and has expanded into a four-center
network that is the largest in the country. From industry-leading
clinical research to unprecedented quality control measures rooted in
human medicine, PetCure’s pioneering innovations have led to a quality
of treatment and delivery that is unrivaled in veterinary medicine.

“We are honored to welcome the exceptional team at Lakeshore into the
PetCure Oncology network,” said Scott Milligan, PetCure Oncology’s chief
executive officer. “We share a common vision for providing extraordinary
medical care with compassionate, five-star service. Together, I am
confident we will be able to keep many more families intact by giving
their pets a chance for long-term survival and improved quality of life.”

PetCure Oncology’s national network also includes Arizona
Veterinary Oncology
in Gilbert, Arizona, Care
Center
in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Veterinary
Radiosurgery and Imaging Center
in Clifton, New Jersey. Additional
centers across the country are in various stages of development.

Lakeshore
Veterinary Specialists
, an independently owned and operated hospital
offering 24/7 emergency/critical care and specialty services by
board-certified veterinarians, has locations in Glendale, Oak Creek, and
Port Washington, Wisconsin. If your pet has been diagnosed with cancer
and you would like to evaluate all treatment options with a veterinary
oncologist, ask your primary care veterinarian for a referral to
