Hospital hours

Our emergency services are available 24 hours a day.

Cancer is the diagnosis no one wants to hear, but there is hope. Our board-certified oncology veterinarians, veterinary residents and interns, and licensed veterinary technicians are here to support you and your pet throughout your journey.

Diagnosing and treating a pet with cancer involves a team of specialists, including oncologists, internal medicine veterinarians, clinical pathologists, surgeons, and radiologists. At WSU, veterinary students are also part of the team caring for your pet. We also work closely with clients’ referring veterinarians.

Our aim is to maintain, or for many, improve the quality of life for our patients using advanced diagnostic services, innovative treatment, and compassionate care. We will be with you every step of the way.
