Animal cancer therapy is now offered at home upon request ! We are excited about our new hospital opening!
HACC is a comprehensive in hospital and mobile cancer treatment clinic for cats and dogs. Cancer care incorporates the health and harmony of the mind and body. HACC incorporates Eastern and Western medicine to accomplish this. Holistic, traditional therapy, and clinical trials have given our patients longer and happier lives.
It can be a very scary time when your animal is diagnosed with cancer. We are here to help you through the entire process of learning about cancer, learning how we maintain a good quality of life when treating cancer and loving your animal as if they are our own. Not only do we spend the time to answer all your questions, we also provide you with our contact information to get in touch with us after hours. It is important to us to make sure that your animal has the best care and that your family feels like they are part of our family at HACC.
In addition to specialized home care we offer a variety of therapeutic options. Each patient is unique and treatment is tailored to their needs. Therapy can consist of well tolerated chemotherapy, immunotherapy (vaccine therapy), holistic treatment and affordable treatment in our clinical trials. We are very proud to offer safe and potentially life-enhancing clinical trial therapies. It is our goal to care for as many animals as possible and we work closely with charities to accomplish that need.
Dr. Wendy Lavalle developed her passion for oncology during her childhood. When she was young she lost a close family member to cancer. Later, she lost her beloved Golden Retriever, Nickita, to malignant melanoma. Nickita did not have the treatment options available today. Malignant melanoma is a treatable and sometimes curable cancer due to a new therapy with a cancer “vaccine".
Dr Lavalle attended the University of Florida and later on continued her specialized training at an internship at Florida Veterinary Specialists and an oncology residency at Animal Cancer and Imaging Center in Michigan. She also attended various specialty hospitals and Universities for her rotations in medicine, pathology and radiation oncology.
Dr. Lavalle developed clinical trials for various cancers including malignant melanoma. She has an interest in novel therapy for aggressive cancers and has two ongoing clinical trials. Our team is thrilled with the life changing results for our patients enrolled in our clinical trials.
HACC offers compassionate care for both our patients and their families. We would love to care for your family member as we would our own.
