About Us

Vet Oncologist is an online specialist consultation service for vets globally.

Our goal is to help pet owners make informed treatment decisions for their pets. We aim to ease the process of treating dogs and cats with cancer for both pet owners and veterinarians.

In providing advice we prioritise quality of life and aim to improve the well being of dogs and cats living with cancer, wherever they may be in the world.
