ABOUT VETERINARY ONCOLOGY CONSULTANTS

Our mission is to assist other veterinarians in providing the highest possible quality of life for pets with cancer and their human families, by making evidence- and compassion-based recommendations for their care and providing educational materials.

We are ACVIM board-certified veterinary oncologists, providing remote consultations to veterinarians located anywhere, by phone, fax, or email, when they are caring for a pet with cancer. Our consultations include information on the biology and behaviour of the particular type of cancer as well as recommendations for the diagnostic and therapeutic approach. When needed, we can also provide veterinarians with educational materials to give to the owner-caregiver of the pet.

Our recommendations and educational materials are based on the knowledge gained in our specialty training, over 30 years of combined experience in treating pets with cancer, and the latest information published in the scientific literature, combined with our genuine concern for the well-being of each individual veterinary cancer patient and his or her human family.

 

Antony S Moore BVSc, MVSc, Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology) Tony's publications and lectures

Dr. Tony Moore trained as a veterinarian at the University of Sydney, Australia obtaining his degree (BVSc) in 1980. After completing an internship at the same institution, he worked in practice in Sydney for 5 years and completed a Master's degree in feline haematology. At this time he found immense satisfaction in helping improve the life of pets with terminal diseases, but realized he needed further training to give the best support to his patients and their caregivers. He emigrated to the USA, and trained at University of California, Davis in medical oncology. In 1988, he accepted a position at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine and saw the oncology program grow both in size and reputation. He is particularly proud of the 10 oncology residents he has helped train, many of whom direct oncology programs at veterinary schools across the USA. Tony's special interest is the epidemiology of cancer as it relates to companion animals.
