In of the first cases in history, an adorable golden retriever has celebrated completing radiotherapy.
Claude, a nine-year-old golden retriever, got treatment with one of the only machines in the UK used to treat animals with cancer.
He was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2018, and after hearing of a new machine called a ‘Linear accelerator’ for radiotherapy on animals, his owners Anita, 60, and Ian Greenfield, 57, inquired about treatment.
The couple were fortunate enough to get Claude the treatment at The Royal School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh and Southfields Veterinary specialists, with the dog becoming one of the first to be treated with the technique in the UK.
To celebrate the success of Claude’s radiotherapy course, the vets who treated the dog threw him a party and the cute dog can be seen beaming with his party hat on.
