Cancer centre opening

The AHT opens a purpose-built state-of-the-art Cancer Centre offering radiotherapy to horses, dogs and cats with cancer, which complements our existing cancer treatment options of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Being able to combine surgery with chemotherapy and / or radiotherapy on one-site means we are able to offer each and every patient the specific treatment for its specific cancer. We have also been able to gather information which is contributing to our on-going cancer research and, in time, the patients we are helping are indirectly helping us improve cancer treatments for other dogs, cats and horses across the world. The AHT is the only centre in the UK to offer HDR brachytheraphy and strontium plesiotherapy treatments for horses.
