We understand that facing cancer with your pet can be difficult. Our team in Bradenton is here to provide compassionate care for your pet every step of the way, from diagnosis to treatment.

What is Veterinary Oncology?

Veterinary Oncology is a specialization within animal healthcare that treats pets with cancer. Our oncologists at Animal ER of University Park are equipped with the knowledge and training required to assess, diagnose, and treat animals suffering from cancers, tumors, masses, and secondary symptoms of cancer.

After completing veterinary school, our board-certified veterinary oncologists undergo an additional 5 years of study which they spend rotating through internships and residencies regarding every aspect of cancer treatment. Our team here focuses on treating cancers in cats and dogs. Learn more about our experienced veterinary team below.
