LAHORE: The Pet Centre of the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) has been performing close to 100 surgeries every day and has started cancer treatment of pets.
Dr Ziaullah Mughal, of the centre, said the centre had developed the capability to treat cancer in pets.
Cancer, he said, was common in dogs, however, it was treatable.
Unfortunately people often brought dogs stricken with cancer to the centre when the disease was at its final stages, he added.
Mostly dogs, cats and birds are brought to the centre for surgery and treatment, he said.
The doctor said currently only four vets, two assistants and six paramedics were working at the centre.
