Oncology Service



The Oncology service at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston provides your pet with a state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary approach to cancer diagnosis and treatment. Angell's veterinary oncologists Lyndsay Kubicek, DVM, DACVR (Radiation Oncology), Ivan Martinez, DVM, DACVIM (IM and Medical Oncology), and Lee Talbott, DVM (Practice Limited to Medical Oncology) use their compassion and expertise to develop thoughtful treatment protocols to optimally manage your pet’s cancer.

Unique to Angell, our Oncology Service works collaboratively with the Angell Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Services to provide maximum comfort and safety to our patients. In addition, Angell's soft tissue surgeons are among the most experienced in the world, working together with Angell oncologists to effectively treat mast cell tumors and other oncological conditions.

Angell's routine use of Vascular Access Ports to more comfortably administer treatment (fewer needles!), and side-effect-limiting Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), are also distinct benefits to Angell's offerings not found at most veterinary cancer centers in Massachusetts.

Our role as the oncology team is to provide you with options for management of your pet’s cancer and to implement your choices. Our commitment is to improve your companion’s quality of life and to do so in an atmosphere of caring and compassion. We pledge to work with you and your primary veterinarian to offer the best in veterinary care for your pet.
