Linear Accelerator

Give Hope

When you support cancer care at the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, you give hope to those who love their animals.

Each year, we treat around 300 dogs and 40 cats for cancer. Dogs like Booda, an 11-year-old Dachshund with a benign brain tumor or Kiki, a 6-year-old border collie mix who now has a second lease on life. Many of our cancer patients come from Washington State or as far away as Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Canada.

Why Does the WSU Veterinary Hospital Need a New Radiation Machine?

A newer linear accelerator, or LINAC, is even more accurate and safe for treating animal patients with cancer. With the new machine, radiation can be better directed to the tumor, while protecting surrounding healthy tissues. And because the dose rate can be moderated, it reduces treatment time for your animal.

Happy Days Ahead

Frenchie the dog
Lucy, a 12-year-old Boston Terrier, has more time with her owner Tami because of radiation therapy at WSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

Cancer isn’t always be curable, but it may be treatable giving a beloved pet many happy days. For Lucy a Boston Terrier and Zoey a miniature Goldendoodle, they each enjoyed more time with their families because of cancer care at WSU.

You can give hope when you support cancer care at the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
