Philosophy of The Oncology Service – Delivering the Future of Veterinary Oncology
At TOS, we believe that the diagnosis of cancer in a pet is not the end but rather, the beginning of an opportunity to identify solutions that can improve a pet’s quality of life while maximizing the time they have to enjoy it with their families. Whether the diagnosis carries a potentially curative prognosis or a much more guarded one, we are here to help. As a team of 10+ veterinarians dedicated exclusively to oncology, we provide an unparalleled wealth of knowledge, experience, and collaboration.
We are privileged in veterinary oncology to have some of the sweetest patients and most dedicated clients. Aided by our close proximity to FETCH-a-Cure, we try to find options to help every single patient and our clients are extremely appreciative of the efforts we put in for them. While the work is not always easy, at TOS, we strive to provide compassionate and thoughtful care when pets need it most through state-of-the-art cancer therapies.
