Sometimes, our appointments take a little longer because we find when we slow down and take our time, our patients and clients feel more comfortable. At AVO, we value every client, every patient, and every employee.

These graduates scored higher than the national average on the NAVLE and are receiving glowing praise from new employers about their job skills. MWU students are trained within a gorgeous veterinary teaching hospital and partner with highly qualified practices around the valley (not a distributive model). Arizona Veterinary Oncology is proud to be involved in the training of these students through clinical interactions and lecture opportunities. AVO works alongside the talented MWU surgeons, internists, neurologist, anesthesiologists and numerous general practitioners for hands on learning. There are also additional compensation opportunities for lectures delivered to students with no additional committee requirements.
