Cancer
The Texas Veterinary Cancer Registry (TVCR) is a Texas-based animal care network and registry formed to
identify, register, facilitate and promote the medical treatment of pets with cancer. The Texas Veterinary Cancer
Registry aims to advance veterinary cancer research and to create connections between researchers,
veterinarians and owners of pets with naturally-occurring disease that could provide the critical data to someday
help eliminate cancer as we know it. By including your pet in this database of animals with cancer we will gain
important information regarding common cancers in our pet populations. Such information will be useful for
applying new treatments to dogs and cats and for better understanding the progression of these life-threatening
diseases. Improved understanding of the similarities and differences between cancer in our pets and cancer in
humans may help improve treatment in both humans and pets.
