The Veterinary Cancer Society was formed in 1977 by an interested group of veterinary oncologists. It is a non-profit educational organization that is incorporated in the State of Illinois. Our current membership numbers over 1,000 and includes specialists in medical, surgical, and radiation oncology, internists, pathologists, pharmacologists, and general practitioners from all over the United States and the world.
The goals of our organization are:
To help maintain the highest standards of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer in animals.
To promote communication among those engaged and interested in naturally occurring and experimental neoplastic diseases of animals with emphasis on domestic animals.
To provide a means to collect, elucidate and disseminate relevant data concerning neoplastic diseases of animals and to make it available to veterinary students, practitioners, other interested scientific groups and the public.
To advise in designing, implementing and evaluating studies of neoplastic diseases in animals. These goals are being met by the dissemination of a quarterly newsletter, continuing education programs at national meetings, a yearly scientific meeting for members and cooperative therapeutic trials.
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.
