Abstract:  Compounding pharmacists can play a vital role in providing antiangiogenic cancer therapy for animal patients, thereby facilitating the shift in perspective of cancer from a life-threatening diagnosis to a manageable chronic disease. Understanding key etiologic, pathologic, and therapeutic points can facilitate the pharmacist’s participation in the veterinary care triad for cancer therapy. Compounding pharmacists well versed in current concepts for both human and veterinary antiangiogenic therapy will maximally contribute to positive outcomes in veterinary cancer care.
