WHY USE ECT: SEE WHAT VETS ARE SAYING
Numerous studies have proven both the efficacy and safety of electrochemotherapy in the treatment of cancerous tumors in equine, feline, and canine subjects in the US and abroad.
The incidence of cutaneous and subcutaneous cancerous tumors in companion animals has steadily grown over the years, which can lead to shortened lifespans and a reduced quality of life. Treatment of these tumors has traditionally been limited to surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of these options.
However, due to location or growth patterns, some tumors cannot be treated by these methods. Electrochemotherapy (ECT) is a safe and effective alternative to these traditional methods that does not involve surgery and in many instances works with a single treatment
