vss oncology


Bonnie Smith, DVM, DACVIM

We understand how difficult it is to learn that your pet has been diagnosed with cancer. However, you don’t have to go through this experience alone. The Oncology department at Veterinary Specialty Services strives to take the fear out of the diagnosis of cancer by providing each family with compassion and knowledge to handle this situation with hope and a positive outlook.

Our board-certified Oncologist has specialized knowledge in the diagnosis of cancer, the staging of tumors, the development of treatment plans and the administration of chemotherapy. When your pet is faced with cancer, our veterinary oncologist will work in concert with your general veterinarian in order to obtain the best possible medical outcome for your pet.

Your pet’s quality of life is the most important factor in choosing the best treatment course. During your initial visit consultation, we will examine your pet, conduct any additional diagnostic testing necessary, and discuss treatment options. Together, we will decide upon a plan of action that best serves your pet and your family.
