  • Covering therapeutic strategies used in the treatment of veterinary cancer patients, this book is a comprehensive resource for veterinary oncologists and trainees. In the setting of a rapidly changing field like oncology, this timely text focuses on mechanisms of action and biological rationale rather than current specific clinical recommendations, allowing current and future clinicians to adapt treatment approaches as our understanding of the biology of cancer evolves.

    With each chapter written by experts in their field, this book provides informative graphical abstracts that convey this biological understanding and rationale of therapy. It starts from the mechanisms of treatment as we currently understand them, covering radiation therapy, chemotherapy options, enzyme therapy, gene editing, inhibitors, and many more. Dispensing vital, detailed and practical information about the different therapeutic strategies available, this book is a vital resource for practicing veterinarians, while also providing students of veterinary oncology with a better understanding of the key differences between different treatment strategies.
