LIST OF ITEMS TO TAKE


How to prepare an animal for the first visit to the RTWet Center?

Perhaps your pet will have to undergo general anesthesia during the first visit to the RTWet Center.
Therefore, we require that each patient has a set of up-to-date blood tests (last 7-14 days) prepared.
and other additional tests, performed according to the patient’s condition, needs and age. The veterinarian who directs the animal to the RTWet Center decides about the scope of additional tests.
Every Patient should be on top!
We require canine patients to be fasting for approximately 8 hours, or 10-12 hours if they are molossers. Cats should not be fed 6 hours before the visit. For other animal species, please contact us about fasting or not.
We leave full access to water at all times, only molossers should not drink an hour before the visit.


What does the qualifying consultation look like?

During the qualifying consultation, a clinical examination of the patient is carried out in order to determine his current status.
Very often, during this visit, we carry out a CT scan. The test takes place on a flat table in the appropriate position, very accurately reproduced later when giving subsequent radiation fractions.
Application for consultation on radiotherapy means consent to perform computed tomography for neoplasms located in deeper tissues.
The tutor receives an excerpt from the consultation and a proposal
treatment. A plan is prepared within a few days
radiation therapy and the administered first fraction of radiation.


How long does radiotherapy treatment take?

The radiotherapy plan is adjusted each time to the patient’s situation and the purpose of treatment. Patients usually receive 2 to 20 fractions of irradiation once a week, every few days or every day.


What payment methods are preferred at RTWet Center?

At RTWet Center, WE DO NOT ACCEPT cash.
Payments should be made by credit card (computed tomography) or by bank transfer (radiotherapy).
It is possible to pay in installments using the VetiRaty system


Is it possible to pay in installments for radiotherapy treatment?

Yes. Installment payments are possible thanks to the VetiRaty system


Can I feed the animal on the day of irradiation?

No. Irradiation administration requires the Patient to be anesthetized.
So every patient should be on top!
We require canine patients to be fasting for approximately 8 hours, or 10-12 hours if they are molossers. Cats should not be fed 6 hours before the visit. For other animal species, please contact us about fasting or not.
We leave full access to water at all times, only molossers should not drink an hour before the visit.


How long does it take to administer the radiotherapy fraction?

Radiation planning anesthesia generally lasts 1-1.5 hours.
The first fraction of radiotherapy usually lasts up to an hour. The next doses take much less time. The administration of irradiation itself takes 0.5-1 minute, but the most time it takes is to position and check the position of the patient (the radiotherapy fraction must be given extremely precisely). For these reasons, we reserve an hour in the accelerator bunker for each patient.


I am far away. Do I have to leave my pet at the Center for the treatment period?

It is possible to leave your pet with us for the time of treatment. We have cages and a room that can be entirely reserved for your pet.
We also have 3 accommodation rooms dedicated to Caregivers and the animal currently treated with us. More information can be found on the page: ACCOMMODATION IN RTWet

Yes. It is possible to visit a pet, as well as rent a room, e.g. for the weekend.
