Veterinary Oncology is the field of veterinary medicine that focuses on treatment of animals with cancer. A veterinary oncologist can help with the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers, tumors, masses, and secondary symptoms of cancer that your pet may be experiencing.
Our Veterinary Oncologists are highly-trained specialists who have all undergone an additional 5 years of study after completing their veterinary degree. In addition to 4 years of veterinary school, our doctors rotate through internships and residencies focusing on all aspects of cancer treatment before receiving their accreditation. Our team here focuses on treating cancers in cats and dogs. Learn more about our compassionate and qualified care team below.
