Oncology topics are covered with great detail in reference textbooks and in the veterinary literature. Each geriatric oncology case has a unique element if one looks for it. Many cases are atypical. With the volume of material that a contemporary veterinarian has to have in his or her head, it is a lifelong challenge just to keep all of the facts in place and up to date.

Age is a condition, not a disease. Many veterinarians are complacent after diagnosing cancer in an old dog or cat past a certain chronological age. Instead of working with the pet caregiver and offering multiple options, some veterinarians are thinking about their euthanasia speech. This cold shoulder attitude is unfair to clients and their geriatric pets. Veterinarians and their professional staff must overcome the doldrums and get rid of the defeatist attitude and not abdicate medical care and individualized oncology management for geriatric cancer patients.
