Veterinary Oncology

What is Veterinary Oncology?

Veterinary oncology is the branch of veterinary medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancers in animals. An oncologist can help with the care and management of cancers, tumors, masses, and secondary symptoms of cancer or cancer treatment.

At Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic, we know how worrisome a cancer diagnosis can be. Our oncologists are here to provide your pet with quality veterinary care, and our staff is here to support you and your family during this trying time. We believe in communication and transparency so that we can work with you, your pet, and other veterinarians in order to determine the best possible cancer care plan for your pet. If you have been referred to us by another veterinarian, or you would like to schedule a visit, please book an appointment as soon as possible.
