Optimal OUTCOMES through 5 Areas of Focused Expertise

When we talk about Optimal OUTCOMES, we mean the very best physical and experiential results possible for you and your pet based on your informed, responsible care decisions – decisions incorporating your personal circumstances and guided by the very best medical expertise available.

Delivering Optimal OUTCOMES for every single Client and Animal Patient is not easy, but we have spent 15 years asking and learning about how to best achieve this result. Our relentless pursuit of Optimal OUTCOMES has driven us to define five areas of laser-focused expertise in which we have built a reputation for preeminence and distinguished ourselves from other veterinary cancer care providers.

During your interactions with ACCC, we believe you will notice our commitment to these five focus areas, and are certain you will benefit from this commitment. These core areas of expertise are the foundation upon which our culture of HOPE, CARE and Optimal OUTCOMESTM is built, and are the avenues in which we share it with you, your pet, your primary veterinarian and our employees.

What Clients Say About Their OUTCOMES

DATE: 2/10/2019

To ACCC@animalcancercareclinic.com,

Tasha was discharged from your care essentially to home hospice care in August because her B-cell lymphoma had returned and it was not responsive to any further treatment protocols available.

Her disease progressed and on the night of August 31 she precipitously decompensated and the next day Dr. Johanna Wade administered humane euthanasia in my home.

I want to thank all of you including the veterinarians, veterinary technicians and support staff for the expert veterinary care Tasha received over the last two years. Drs. Correa, Sones and Fernandez (in order of treatment over the last two years) deserve my highest professional praise for the quality of care and continuity of care Tasha received.

Dear Dr. Correa and the ACCC family,

As you know, Wolfie passed away in my arms Thursday morning, January 24, 2019.

Firstly, Dr. Correa, your professionalism was always appreciated. Your compassion, sensitivity, and down to earth communication made the ordeal of dealing with Wolfie’s illness for over twenty six months less painful. You are a very special human being and I know could Wolfie talk, he would thank you for the extra time and sensitivity you gave him and me.

Secondly, your family (staff) is second to none. Your reception ladies, Stacie, Jamie, Devon and Christina were always so thoughtful, friendly, compassionate and upbeat.. In particular, Christina was interactive with Wolfie and Devon would always shout “See you tomorrow Wolfie… goodbye Mr. Shone.” – Just always making us feel so special.

Questions

Animal cancer treatment is becoming more and more common as primary care veterinarians and pet owners learn of its increasingly successful outcomes. Even the general public is learning about animal cancer care through survivor stories in social medial, online videos, and awareness campaigns such as the 2019 “Lucky Dog” Superbowl advertisement. The human medical community has recently looked to animal care cancer research to inform advances in human care, spurring on even more interest and applications. In fact, many innovations in veterinarian care have already been transitioned to human care, while some human-caliber developments in equipment, technology and methods have successfully been transitioned to veterinarian care. Though it is hard to know what percent of pets with cancer are currently diagnosed and treated, we are absolutely committed to achieving an Optimal OUTCOME for every single one entrusted to us.

Depending on your pet’s specific diagnosis, the intent of their treatment will be considered “curative” (cure or remission) or “palliative” (primarily comfort and well-being). Generally speaking, treatment for animals will never proceed at an intensity which causes significant side-effects for your pet as unlike in human care, your pet would not understand the rationale. Therefore, remission of cancer is often achievable whereas a cure may not be as likely for some cancer types. Fortunately, because of its recent implications for human cancer care, much research is being conducted and advancements made in all varieties of animal cancer treatments with more animals being successfully treated and even cured than ever before.

Some primary care veterinarians do treat cancer, but ACCC’s collective experience, up-to-date knowledge, in-house equipment and facilities is recognized by most as the definitive “answer to pet cancer.” That is why we have trusted partnerships with most clinics, and why they are comfortable referring you to us – even providing you $50 toward the cost of your Consultation. They know too, that we will keep them thoroughly informed about your pet’s well-being, and communicate with them as necessary throughout your time with us.
