Arizona Veterinary Oncology is fully staffed with board-certified medical and radiation oncologists, serving the greater Phoenix area. Our doctors are dedicated to providing up-to-date therapies and treatment protocols tailored to each individual pet. Our 3-location veterinary oncology group is the only one in the Phoenix metro area that can provide complete oncological care, including diagnostics, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. By providing all modalities within our oncology group, we can offer outstanding quality and continuity of care. Our locations also work closely with other specialties to make diagnoses and form treatment plans based on each pet’s individual needs. Arizona Veterinary Oncology will work as a team with you, your pet, and your family veterinarian to offer excellent oncological care and ensure the best quality of life for your pet.
Arizona Veterinary Oncology has partnered with PetCure Oncology in order to offer our patients stereotactic radiosurgery in our Gilbert facility. This advanced type of radiation therapy delivers a high dose of precisely focused radiation beam that can destroy cancerous tumors without damaging nearby healthy tissue with curative intent.
Our three locations also make visits convenient, regardless of where you live in the Valley of the Sun.
What does board certified mean?
Board-certified veterinary oncologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in animals. Currently, there are less than 400 board-certified medical oncologists and around 100 board-certified radiation oncologists in the United States. In addition to 4 years of veterinary school, they will complete at least 3 years of additional training. This training is completed through highly competitive internships and residencies specific to veterinary oncology. They will undergo extensive training, rigorous testing, and will demonstrate their clinical competency under close supervision from a board-certified veterinary oncologist. Board-certified specialists are referred to as “Diplomates” of their specialty college. Medical oncologists are certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. (www.acvim.org). Radiation oncologists are certified by the American College of Veterinary Radiology (www.acvr.org).
