ISU Pet Cancer Clinic

Iowa State offers the only veterinary hospital in Iowa with board-certified medical and radiation oncologists to treat cancer in animals. To expand our capacity to serve our patients and clients, we have Iowa Board of Regents permission to proceed with planning and fundraising for the construction of a Pet Cancer Clinic at the Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center. With an estimated cost of $7 million and a location adjacent to the radiation therapy facility (Phase I), the new Pet Cancer Clinic will provide a centralized, state-of-the-art facility for this care, as well as enhance clinical trial capabilities.

PHASE I- Completed

  • Stereotactic Radiation Therapy service
  • Vital component of integrated cancer treatment protocols
  • Delivers high doses of precisely focused radiation
  • SRT is used for pituitary, brain, bone, nasal, skin and many other solid tumors
  • Typically delivered in 1-4 treatments representing 80-95%reduction in treatment sessions

PHASE II – If funding is secured, anticipated construction could begin spring 2025

  • Patient-centered Treatment Area
  • Advanced diagnostics and treatment of small pets with chemotherapy or immunotherapy
  • Dedicated consultation spaces for oncology patients
  • Enhanced clinical trials capabilities
