Oncology Services

Oncology Services

The Oncology staff consists of veterinarians who are board-certified in oncology, oncology residents in training, and veterinary technicians who specialize in oncology nursing. Please call 765-494-1107 to make an appointment.  

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.  New appointments should include a referral from your veterinarian.

In case of after-hours emergencies, please call the closest veterinary emergency center or see our emergency service.  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.
