Iowa State University (ISU) is expanding its Veterinary oncology services, responding to the growing demand for advanced medical treatments for pets, particularly in the field of cancer care. ISU’s Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center, which is reportedly the only facility in Iowa with boarded oncologists treating pet cancer, sought approval from the Board of Regents to develop a 1,320-square-foot stereotactic radiation therapy addition to its Veterinary Medical Center.
