VACC offers initial consultations for any types of cancer.

An initial consultation provides owners with the opportunity to spend 45 minutes – 1 hour with a registered veterinary specialist, and involves a thorough discussion of the pet’s cancer. All treatment options, including palliation, will be covered with the owner.

We can also perform most diagnostic tests including ultrasonography, biopsy procedures, bone marrow aspirates and organising advanced imaging if needed.  We are also available for revisits and chemotherapy appointments.

Although VACC is a specialist veterinary oncology service, we are also trained in radiation and surgical oncology, and can give advice and recommendations regarding these modalities.

If we feel a patient would benefit from the services of another speciality we can arrange this; however, this would be done only after consultation with the referring veterinarian clinic first.

What does VACC need from your clinic?

All we require in order to see a pet owner is a referral from your clinic, with any information relevant to your patient’s cancer.  We are happy to accept referrals through our online referral form, via fax, or by phone.

We adhere to the strict guidelines regarding cytotoxic substances as outlined by WorkSafe.
