Over the past decade, interventional oncology techniques have become integrated into the treatment plans of companion animals with cancer on a regular basis. Although procedures such as stenting are performed commonly, other less frequently utilized techniques for locoregional therapy, such as embolization and ablation, are emerging and demonstrating promise. Tumor ablation techniques are categorized into two subgroups: chemical ablation and energy-based ablation. Increased utilization of ablation will allow for the determination of specific indications and evaluation of outcomes for these techniques.
