Veterinary MRI and Radiotherapy Center of NJ is Acquired by PetCure Oncology

Infusion of additional resources will continue to help revolutionize
cancer care for companion animals.

MRI and Radiotherapy Center of NJ
, a pioneer in providing
leading-edge cancer care and imaging services to the region’s companion
animals, has been acquired by PetCure
the largest provider of stereotactic
radiosurgery (SRS)
in the veterinary market. The practice,
located at 1071 Paulison Avenue in Clifton, has been renamed PetCure
Oncology at Veterinary Radiosurgery & Imaging Center (VRIC).

“Cancer accounts for nearly 50 percent of all disease-related pet deaths
and is the number one cause of death in older dogs and cats. Bringing
VRIC into the PetCure Oncology family was a natural fit as both
organizations are committed to providing the most progressive treatment
options,” said JoAnn Stewart, RVT, CVPM, PetCure Oncology Chief
Operating Officer. “VRIC was also one of the first locations in the
nation to offer stereotactic radiosurgery, designed to cure
cancer with fewer treatments and less side effects than conventional
radiation therapy.”

The practice was the first freestanding imaging and radiation treatment
center in the world when it opened to the public in 2002. It is still
their mission to improve the lives of companion animals by providing the
most advanced radiation therapy and imaging services [including CT and
MRI]. Not only has the center treated thousands of patients, it has
become a vital educational resource for veterinarians in the New
Jersey/New York region in the application of cross- sectional imaging
and advanced cancer treatment.

“I have been involved with VRIC for 10 years and I am excited about
bringing them into the PetCure Oncology network,” said Neal
, DVM, DACVIM (Internal Medicine and Oncology), DACVR (RO), a
triple board-certified veterinary specialist and Chief Medical Officer
at PetCure Oncology. “We look forward to infusing additional resources
and expertise through our scientific advisory board and enhanced
clinical protocols, among many other things. The transition will be
seamless and their outstanding team will remain in place.”

VRIC joined PetCure Oncology’s growing network of veterinary
radiosurgery centers with sister locations in Phoenix
and Cincinnati.
Centers in Wisconsin and Illinois are set to open in the coming months
with many more locations across the country in various stages of
