As the most comprehensive, multi-specialty veterinary center in the Western PA area, PVSEC serves the needs of pets in challenging conditions. The partnership between our specialty practices allows us to offer round-the-clock care to our patients and the expertise of specialists in many fields.
PVSEC provides exceptional veterinary care through board certified veterinary specialists, 24/7 emergency medicine, the region's only on-site high-field MRI for pets, highly qualified, compassionate support staff, strong client relationships, strong relationships with referring veterinarians, open communication and education and an environment that encourages teamwork, supports professional advancement and rewards superior performance.
Most importantly, PVSEC places the patient's quality of life above all else!
In November 2010, we opened the PVSEC Cancer Center. The PVSEC Cancer Center combines all aspects of cancer treatment and diagnostics under one roof. Often, a combination of multiple types of treatments is the most effective way to obtain the best possible outcome.
Diagnostic services include advanced on-site imaging to obtain digital x-rays, ultrasound, and CT and MRI for diagnosing, staging, and planning treatment.
Treatments available include surgery to diagnose and remove tumors; medical oncology to treat residual or metastatic disease with chemotherapy, immunotherapy (such as the melanoma vaccine), or molecular therapy (such as Palladia); and radiation therapy for tumors that cannot be completely removed due to location or extent, or that do not respond well to chemotherapy.
The availability of all of these services in one location means pets can receive the most effective combination of treatments to achieve the best possible outcome without the need to board in another state or city. Most treatments can be done on an outpatient basis. Time is precious when a pet has cancer; we want our patients to spend it with their owners, not in a hospital.
