 There is a growing demand for use of integrative medicine in veterinary clinical oncology.

  •  Evidence-based research on using integrative medicine in veterinary clinical oncology is

    scarce.

  •  Translational research with animal models of human cancers is an opportunity to expand the knowledge of the etiopathogenesis of neoplasia and identify treatments.

  •  Metabolomics research may provide the evidence-based research needed to accelerate the use of complementary and alternative medicine in both human and veterinary oncology.
