Elisabetta Treggiari DVM MSc MRCVS
Elisabetta graduated from the University of Parma, Italy, in 2006 and having already developed a strong interest in cancer biology and clinical oncology, went on to study a Masters Course in Veterinary Oncology at the University of Pisa, which she completed in 2008.
After moving to the UK, Elisabetta completed a one-year internship in a private cancer and critical care referral centre before taking an ECVIM-CA (Oncology) residency at the University of Liverpool. Upon completion of this, Elisabetta joined us here at Willows as an Oncology Clinician, and is also studying for the European Diploma in Small Animal Oncology.
When she is not at work, Elisabetta enjoys spending most of her free time with her wire-haired Dachshund, Alpha and she also loves to travel.
Patients coming to Willows with cancer are dealt with by a combination of highly experienced veterinary surgeons from within our Specialist medical, surgical and diagnostic imaging teams. Anaesthesia and pain management for cancer patients is provided by our Specialist-led team of anaesthetists. Patient comfort is highly important to us, and our anaesthesia team using a whole range of different techniques for pain control.
We are able to perform highly advanced diagnostic investigations on patients with tumours, allowing us to diagnose and stage the cancer so that we can give the best advice regarding management options and outlook.
Our Specialists are able to provide a whole range of chemotherapy treatments for pets with certain types of tumour, and many of these regimes of treatment are very well tolerated by most patients. In addition, our Specialist surgeons are able to deal with tumours in virtually any location, and they have advanced training in performing cancer operations.
If your pet unfortunately has cancer, you need to be referred by your veterinary surgeon in order to see one of our Oncology Service team.
