Our goal is to educate you about all of the options available for your pet, empowering you to make the right treatment decisions for your pet and family.
This means our oncologist has completed additional training and certification beyond veterinary school, similar to the path a physician takes to become a human specialist. Only those veterinarians who have successfully completed an AVMA-accredited residency program, published original research, and passed a series of rigorous examinations in their area of expertise, can call themselves specialists. Veterinary Medical Oncologists are board-certified, also known as Diplomates, through the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM). Because of this, we do not handle routine preventive care such as vaccinations or spay/neuter procedures. Your pet’s primary care veterinarian is best qualified to handle the day-to-day general wellness of your pet. In most cases, your pet’s regular veterinarian will refer you to a specialist if they suspect or have diagnosed your pet with cancer. We work together, giving your pet the best chance at a longer, healthier life.
Quality of life: Unified in our goal to maintain a good quality of life throughout the care process, we aim to make certain your pet receives the most appropriate treatment for their particular situation. Providing you with education, options, and support is what you can expect from us to help you make the best decisions for your pet. We’re in this together.
