Our oncology service at MarQueen Specialty Group provides comprehensive consultations, a wide range of cutting-edge diagnostics, as well as the staging and treatment of all cancers of your dog or cat. Dr. Erica Moore is a U.C. Davis trained, board-certified oncologist and Dr. Erica Queen is a board-certified internal medicine specialist who has also practiced oncology medicine for years. These two together collaborate with specialists throughout MarQueen to provide comprehensive care for your dog or cat at a very high-level.

We have some of the most comprehensive cancer treatment available as well as a wide range of advanced diagnostic techniques. Our registered veterinary technicians are experienced in treating oncology patients as well as trained in the administration of chemotherapy and can assist with radiation therapy. While a referral is not needed, we do encourage you to seek the opinion of your family veterinarian and will work with your primary care veterinarian to conduct diagnostic tests, create a treatment plan and discuss your options for medical, radiation or surgical treatments tailored for your dog or cat’s condition.
