Our Mission

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.
