Autologous Cancer Vaccine
As an alternative to chemotherapy, we have started to perform Autologous Canine Vaccines at the Moriches Hospital for Animals. This therapeutic technique utilizes your dog’s own cells to help mount an immune response to help fight the cancerous cells.
Surgery is performed to remove the tumor. The tumor is then shipped to MediVet Biologics, where they process the tissue into a vaccine. Your dog will then have three brief visits over the next 90 days, where we will administer the vaccine.
This therapy may not be ideal for all dogs, so it is important that you speak with one of our veterinarians to determine if this therapy is right for you and your pet.
