Our veterinary oncologist Dr. Erica Moore earned her undergraduate and veterinary degree from the University of Tennessee in her hometown of Knoxville. After graduating Dr. Moore completed a rotating internship at a private practice in Southern California and a one-year clinical research position at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Dr. Moore completed her residency at the prestigious U.C.Davis School of Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital. She is a board certified veterinary oncologist.
Dr. Moore has a passion for treating animals with cancer which stems from her own personal experiences. Prior to veterinary school her beloved Golden Retriever, Nala, was diagnosed with cancer. After the devastating news, she and her family chose to focus their treatment efforts on quality of life – they spoiled her beyond belief! As Dr. Moore reflects back to every tail wag and each delicious treat, it was Nala who helped her to understand that the goal in veterinary cancer treatment was to make sure dogs and cats never know they are sick so that they may keep doing all the things they love most. On her journey, Dr. Moore has had the privilege of meeting so many special dogs and cats, along with their doting parents who have captured her heart and reinforced why she loves what she does every single day!
While there are always many avenues of treatment, her goal is to find the best option for each and every one of her patients that will not only treat their cancer, but also allow them to keep living their life happy, in the moment, and to the fullest!
