Strontium Applicator

This technology was originally developed for humans with superficial cancers of the eye. The technology uses a very small radioactive metal that is applied directly to the skin. This method can be effective against small, superficial cancers that are most commonly seen in cats, horses, and exotic pets. The radiation oncologist will evaluate any potential candidates to determine if Strontium plesiotherapy is a good option for each animal.
