We’ll fight, together

Our oncology service at MarQueen provides consultations to help you come up with the best diagnostic and treatment plan for your dog or cat. Dr. Erica Moore and Dr. Kristen Couto are U.C. Davis trained, board-certified oncologists. They work collaboratively with one another and the other specialists throughout MarQueen to provide the best comprehensive and personalized options for cancer treatment for your pet. Our registered veterinary technicians and oncology staff are experienced in treating oncology patients and are trained to administer chemotherapy. While a referral is not needed, we do encourage you to seek the opinion of your family veterinarian and we 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.
