Ear and Nose Cancer Treatment for Cats in Melbourne

Our Melbourne veterinary clinic offers specialized care for cats diagnosed with ear and nose cancer. We understand the complexities of these types of cancers and are dedicated to providing effective and compassionate treatment for our feline patients.

Diagnosing Ear and Nose Cancer in Cats

Accurate diagnosis is critical for effective treatment:

  • Physical Examination: A thorough examination of the ear and nose areas to identify any masses or abnormalities.
  • Biopsy or Fine Needle Aspiration: These procedures are conducted to obtain a sample of the tumor for histopathological examination.
  • Advanced Imaging: Radiographs (X-rays), CT scans, or MRIs may be used to determine the extent of the cancer and plan the appropriate treatment.

Treatment Options

The treatment for ear and nose cancer in cats often involves a multi-modal approach:

  • Surgical Removal: Where feasible, surgical removal of the tumor is the preferred treatment. This may involve complex surgeries depending on the tumor’s location.
  • Radiation Therapy: For tumors that are not completely removable or as a primary treatment, radiation therapy can be effective.
  • Chemotherapy: Depending on the type of cancer, chemotherapy may be recommended either alone or in combination with other treatments.


The cost of treating ear and nose cancer in cats varies depending on the chosen treatment methods and the complexity of the case. We will provide a detailed cost estimate following your cat’s evaluation.

Payment Options

To help manage the cost of treatment, we offer various payment options:

  • GapOnly: Simplifies the process for insurance claims by covering only the gap amount.
  • VetPay: A financing solution to spread the cost of treatment over time.
  • Zip Money: Flexible payment plans for easing immediate financial pressure.


Aftercare is an essential part of the treatment journey:

  • Postoperative Care: If surgery is performed, we provide guidance on postoperative care, including wound management and pain relief.
  • Management of Side Effects: We offer support in managing any side effects from radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
  • Regular Follow-Up Appointments: Ongoing check-ups to monitor the progress of treatment and adjust as necessary.
