My Commitment To You

To our veterinary colleagues, my commitment is to be available so you can get me on the phone to discuss a mutual case - or even a potential case- with respect and collaboration.

To pet owners, my commitment is to provide expert information about the cancer process and then give you a range of options, free of judgement, from aggressive cancer treatment to palliative options. And above all, I’m committed to doing what’s best for the patient: your beloved pet.

– Dr. Sarah Charney
