About Oncology Consulting
We provide consultations to veterinarians anywhere in the world, who are caring for animals of any species, with any type of cancer.
We will review case information in depth and provide a complete written report with recommendations and responses to specific questions. Please note that we are not able to advise pet owners or caregivers directly, because without the presence of a veterinarian / client / patient relationship, our recommendations would not be valid.
