Putting a Team Together
There are less than 200 veterinary oncologists in the U.S. today, and yet too many dogs to count who are diagnosed with cancer every day. Do not despair. Many general practice veterinarians can provide cancer treatment. And, you can request that this doctor consult with a certified veterinary oncologist regarding your dog's treatment planning and further problems that may occur during the treatment. If your veterinarian does not have an oncology specialist with which to consult, you can contact an oncologist at Oncura Partners for consultation.
