Why choose the VCC
The Veterinary Cancer Center (The VCC) is a specialized veterinary practice dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer in animals. Our team consists of nationally and internationally recognized medical and radiation oncologists and is led by our medical director, Dr. Gerald Post, DACVIM (Oncology).
Our hospital provides patients with the most modern cancer treatments. These include medical oncology (traditional chemotherapy, targeted chemotherapy, antiangiogenic therapy, immunotherapy), radiation oncology (palliative radiation therapy, standard daily radiation therapy, intensity-modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, strontium-probe therapy), and clinical trials that offer innovative and cutting-edge therapies.
By combining superior medicine with expertise and compassionate care, we help guide pet owners in making informed decisions for their pets. Our approach is to work with primary care veterinarians to form a collaborative and supportive team for the pet and other family members, and to extend the quality and length of a patient’s life. Our mission is to give hope to pet owners by pursuing better ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent cancer in all animals.
One of our goals is to maintain an atmosphere where pet owners can feel relaxed, at ease, and at home. The entire VCC team understands the unique dynamic that follows a cancer diagnosis. Cancer is a complex disease by itself and it has far-reaching effects on the entire pet-lover’s family. Our receptionists, technicians, assistants, and veterinarians all have the necessary skills to care for people and pets during the diagnosis, treatment, and remission stages.
In addition to relying on our team, our waiting room is a great source of love and support, filled with other dedicated pet owners who understand the cancer journey. Many are more than happy to share their experiences and provide advice, comfort, and guidance.
