Referred Clients

Oncology service

The Riddell-Swan Veterinary Cancer Centre is one of the largest oncology centres in Europe and has more than a decade’s experience in providing world-class care for pets diagnosed with cancer.

Our team comprises both European and American board-certified Specialists and we work closely with owners and referring veterinarians to diagnose and treat pets, while prioritising quality of life.

We work closely with owners to ensure that they are able to make informed decisions on treatment options, as well as understanding the prognosis of the pet’s particular cancer. This ensures that we have the best therapeutic plan for each pet and that we involve owners and the referring vet in every stage of the treatment. 

We are able to offers a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic options including:

  • surgery
  • radiation therapy
  • chemotherapy
  • targeted medical therapy 
  • immunotherapy 

We are fortunate to have cutting-edge technology to perform radiation therapy in the form of our Vital Beam linear accelerator with cone beam CT scan. This allows us to deliver IMRT, treating with extreme precision that enables us to deliver the maximum dose to kill the tumour cells, whilst minimising the effects on normal cells. We are the only veterinary centre in the UK that has the ability to offer these advanced techniques.

We are happy to accept referrals from vets across the UK.
