Vet Firm Helps Pets Combat Cancer

Veterinary Cancer Group, which has two offices in Southern California, has seen demand for oncology services grow.

By Nathan Olivarez-Giles
February 23 2009

Weekday mornings, Mona Rosenberg joins about a dozen technicians and fellow oncologists in a circle in the back room of her clinic to prepare for the day's cancer patients.

 They open the patients' files and fire off questions and suggestions about treatment. It's the kind of meeting that could happen in any clinic but with an important difference: The patients at Rosenberg's Veterinary Cancer Group have four legs.

 Mainly dogs and cats come their way; sometimes the practice gets a rabbit or horse at its offices in Culver City and Tustin. (paragraph) "We have Moose," Rosenberg said during a recent gathering. "He's a 4 1/2 -year-old chocolate brown Labrador retriever and he had a mast tumor on his scrotum."

 Rosenberg, and many others, didn't think this now-routine morning meeting would have been possible 17 years ago when she opened her practice. But treating animal cancer has become a multimillion-dollar business and Veterinary Cancer Group has grown with it.
