Radiation Therapy for Pets (Dogs and Cats)

Yttrium-90 (Y-90) is an isotope of yttrium and has a wide range of approved uses in human medicine to treat various kinds of cancer. Brachytherapy refers to the precision placement of a sealed radiation source placed next to or inside a tissue requiring treatment (e.g. a tumor).

A benefit of brachytherapy is that the irradiation only affects a localized area. In people, brachytherapy is commonly used to treat tumors of the skin, prostate, breast, and liver.
