What are the treatment options available for hemangiosarcoma?

Treatment options for hemangiosarcoma may include:

· Surgery: Surgery aims to remove the tumor and any affected surrounding tissue. It is often the primary treatment for localized tumors.

· Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy may be used in combination with surgery to target any remaining cancer cells and reduce the risk of metastasis.

· Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy may be used to shrink tumors, especially when surgery is not feasible.

· Immunotherapy and targeted therapies: These newer treatment modalities are under investigation and aim to stimulate the dog's immune system to recognize and attack cancer cells selectively.

· Palliative care: Palliative care focuses on managing pain and improving the dog's quality of life when a cure is not possible.

The treatment plan is tailored to each dog's individual case and may involve a combination of therapies for the best possible outcome.
