Comparative Cancer Center
The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine's Comparative Cancer Center specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and clinical care of animals with cancer. Our team comprises more than 30 faculty and staff—including full-time board certified veterinary specialists in medical oncology, radiation oncology, and surgical oncology. Together, we are breaking new ground in the discovery of new therapies for veterinary cancers and bringing the latest advancements in diagnostics and treatments to our patients.
Working inside one of the most state-of-the-art veterinary cancer research and treatment facilities in the world, we use advanced diagnostic technology—including CT, MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine—to discover and identify cancer in our patients. To treat cancer in animals, we use many of the same methods available in human medicine, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgery. We are also one of the few veterinary facilities in the country able to offer innovative treatments such as interventional radiology, immunotherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and intensity modulated radiotherapy.
At CCC, we understand how frightening it can be to learn that a beloved pet has cancer—and we consider it an honor and a privilege to help guide you and your pets through the diagnosis and treatment process.
