Your Best Friend's Cancer Center

The Masonic Cancer Center is conducting research in our laboratories to determine how cancers that occur in animals are similar to cancers that occur in humans. We are then able to apply what we learn from companion animals to people, and vice versa, with the goal to improve the health and wellbeing of both. By studying naturally occurring cancer in dogs, we are able to make treatments available to humans 10 times faster.

Humans and animals share many types of cancer. Our comparative oncology team uses the latest discoveries and therapies from both fields of medicine to remove the fear associated with a cancer diagnosis. Our treatments lead to extended lives filled with dignity, happiness, companionship, and love.
