Complimentary and Alternative Therapies

Alternative Treatments

Both complementary and alternative treatments can be considered for pets with cancer. Complementary methods are used along with conventional treatments, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy and immunotherapy. They may help relieve symptoms of the cancer, relieve side effects of cancer treatment, and improve the quality of life of our patients. Complementary therapies include acupuncture, massage, herbal therapy, supplements, and aromatherapy. Integrative therapy is a term that is often used to describe the combined use of conventional treatment with complementary methods. Alternative therapy, on the other hand, is used instead of conventional treatments. For people, alternative therapies are either unproven because they have not been scientifically tested, or they have been disproved and are not found to work. The oncologists at CancerVets want to help you choose what is best for your pet. Please speak to a member of our health care team for guidance if you are considering either complementary or alternative treatments for your pet. For more information about complementary therapies, please visit the American Association of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
