VetiVax is a revolutionary Autologous Veterinary Cancer Immunotherapy treatment that uses the patient’s own tumor cells to create a personalized treatment, which educates the patients’ immune system to recognize the tumor as foreign.
How do I use VetiVax?
Surgically remove the tumor and send in a portion of the tumor using the pre-paid Overnight Shipping tumor collection kit. Once our lab receives the sample, we will send you the patient’s personalized VetiVax immunotherapy vaccine in 48 hours via overnight shipping. The vaccine consists of 3 doses, which are administered as a subcutaneous injection, once per week, for the next 3 weeks, close to the excision site or the nearest peripheral lymph node. Typically, anesthesia is not required for the injection series.
