There is help. There is hope.
Much more than a companion, your pet is a member of your family. We feel the same about our own pets. We understand how frightening it is to learn that your pet has cancer. The good news is that you don't have to go through this experience alone. Veterinary Cancer Group is here for you.
Founded in 1992, Veterinary Cancer Group has grown from a one-doctor private oncology practice into one of the largest and most technologically sophisticated veterinary oncology groups in the world. We have proudly served Southern California for the past 25 years and now have four convenient locations from which we care for dogs, cats and various other family pets, on occasion. We offer appointments seven days a week from our comfortable pet cancer care facilities in Los Angeles, Orange County, the San Fernando Valley and the South Bay.Learn More

Gone are the days when pets with cancer were considered untreatable. Hope and a plan of action have replaced the fear and helplessness families once felt after their pet was diagnosed with cancer.

One of our primary goals is to help families understand how cancer affects our unique patients. Physically, pets with cancer respond to treatments differently than humans. For example, pets treated with chemotherapy do not lose their hair unless they are terriers, poodles or sheepdogs. Also, they do not typically experience nausea and are usually subject to milder side effects than their human counterparts. Emotionally and mentally, pets are not consciously aware that they have cancer, and therefore, have a more positive outlook that plays a critical part in their recovery.
Our oncologists review your pet's medical records individually, thoroughly examine your pet, and then discuss the biological behavior of your pet's disease with you. All of our treatment options will be presented to you, including the costs involved. Our team of oncologists will then work with you to come up with the most progressive and effective treatment for both you and your pet.
At Veterinary Cancer Group, we've had the honor and privilege of caring for thousands of pets with cancer. In the process, we've developed an intimate understanding of our patient's state of mind and health. We incorporate this knowledge into every customized treatment.
