“…it was reassuring to my clients and myself, that there was a qualified specialist looking over the cases. It was well worth the consult!”

Guardian Animal Medical Center
We aim to increase access to boarded cancer specialists for pet owners and pets diagnosed with cancer.
Nearly 12 million dogs and cats receive a new cancer diagnosis each year and yet there are roughly 450 boarded cancer specialists in the United States and Canada. We aim to increase access to boarded cancer specialists for pet owners and pets diagnosed with cancer. We’re here to make the process easier to navigate for pet owners and veterinarians.
Taking into account how difficult this can be, our goal is to assist veterinarians in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer cases. We want to provide the highest quality of medicine possible to enrich the pet’s as well as their owner’s quality of life. We also offer a wide range of reference materials, so you are properly educated on all the ins and outs of recommended treatment. These materials will include chemotherapy protocols, informational sheets, videos, and more.
Creating A Relationship With Your Specialist
Speaking and working with many different specialists can be confusing and makes it difficult to create a rapport and bond with your specialist. We know how important your patient’s pets are to them, which is why we are here to help ensure they receive the utmost respect and care. Fidu allows you to establish a relationship with your specialist, and they will be there for every step of the way working with you directly from beginning to end. We believe this continuity and familiarity is important to you and the patient in your care.
We’re flexible. We’re here to help your client and their pet’s needs. Our specialists can either work with you for a one-time consultation or provide support for an on-going medical treatment.
Why Is This Service Important?
The initial consultation is just step one. Cancer cases often require ongoing consistent help after that first discussion. Whether it is to help interpret blood work prior to chemotherapy or a nadir CBC appointment, making important decisions when it comes to decreasing chemotherapy doses based on a pet’s side effects, or you’re contemplating what protocol to switch to after a patient has relapsed, more times than not, additional assistance is needed. It truly helps when the oncologist is familiar with the case and has developed a meaningful relationship with you, the veterinarian.
