Events

Driven by our responsibility and privilege to support the sharing of knowledge, experience, and camaraderie with oncology specialists throughout the world, we are pleased to sponsor three very important industry events in 2023. 

ACVIM Forum

ACCC was a proud sponsor of the 2023 ACVIM (American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine) Forum in Philadelphia, held on June 15-17, 2023. The world’s largest veterinary specialty organization, ACVIM provides veterinary specialist accreditation in five areas, including oncology. The Forum serves as a premier platform for sharing advancements and research in veterinary internal medicine, ultimately enhancing clinical practice and animal health.

As the sponsor of the full day of oncology seminars at the Forum, we brought a special guest, Dr. Renee Alsarraf, an esteemed veterinary oncologist and author of Sit, Stay, Heal: What Dogs Teach Us About Living Well. Her poignant story of her and her dog’s simultaneous cancer diagnosis and treatment moved us, and we were pleased to provide the book to all oncologists in attendance. We also hosted a private dinner where Dr. Alsarraf and other veterinary oncologists and professionals could relax, connect, and share.

At Animal Cancer Care Clinic, we offer a variety of radiation treatment options and provide each of our clients with an Optimal OUTCOMES Care Guide, specifically created for each individual pet’s unique situation.
