The Oncology staff consists of veterinarians who are board-certified in oncology, oncology residents in training, and veterinary technicians who specialize in oncology nursing.
The Oncology Service generally sees new cases, rechecks, and emergencies Monday-Thursday 8am-5pm, with some appointments on Fridays, as well as some limited after-hours services in special, pre-arranged circumstances. Please call (765) 494-1107 to make an appointment. New appointments should include a referral from your veterinarian.
In case of after-hours emergencies, please call the closest veterinary emergency center or call our emergency service at (765) 496-7911. If you come to our hospital, your emergencies will be seen by veterinary interns and emergency clinicians and then transferred to oncology on the next business day if needed.
