State-of-the-art cancer care for our animals
The mission of the Harrington Oncology Program at Cummings School is to provide the highest quality care for companion animals with cancer.
Our beloved companion animals are on the frontline of a field known as comparative oncology, which evaluates how cancer behaves and is best treated in people and other species. Tufts is one of just 20 U.S. academic institutions that are part of the National Cancer Institute’s Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium, which designs and conducts clinical trials of new ways to treat cancer.
Clinicians in the program can attack it with a number of cutting-edge medical, radiation therapy, and surgical techniques. Through the robust clinical-trials program, clients often can access experimental therapies not yet available elsewhere. And because Cummings School veterinarians often partner with researchers in human medicine, study volunteers are simultaneously receiving treatment and helping speed the development of future therapies that will benefit animals and humans alike. All these factors enable the Harrington Oncology Center to offer cancer patients state-of-the-art, compassionate care.
Delivering this care is a team of world-class veterinarians and veterinary technicians who always put pets first. They work tirelessly to make a difference in the life of an animal and the family who brings their animal for care.
