Cancer can be scary, but it is less scary when you understand the options for your pet. At University Veterinary Specialists, the goal of our veterinary oncology services is to reach a definitive diagnosis as efficiently as possible. We want to then educate you on the disease process and the treatment options that are available, so that we can jointly advocate for your pet and determine the best course of action.

With more pet cancer treatment options than ever before, you want to have an veterinary oncology specialist that knows the field well. Our oncologist, Dr. Guillermo Couto, is a world-renowned expert in veterinary oncology. He travels the world lecturing to veterinarians on exactly this subject. After he spent 30+ years at The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine, we are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Couto on our team at University Veterinary Specialists. Dr. Couto enjoys taking time to explain disease processes and options and discuss what is best for his patients.

If you think that your pet may benefit from a consultation with our oncologist, Dr. Couto, please ask your veterinarian or, if they are not available, call our animal care hospital in Pittsburgh at 724-717-CARE (2273).
