The mission of the Oncology Service is to help animals with cancer achieve longer, happier lives. While a cure is not possible in all instances of cancer, usually some form of therapy can improve the patient’s quality of life.
The Oncology Service is composed of two medical oncology faculty, one radiation oncology faculty, and one surgeon who has completed a fellowship in surgical oncology. Additionally, four graduate veterinary residents and one intern are training in the specialty of oncology. Five support staff assist in providing patient care: three licensed veterinary technicians and two veterinary assistants.
