Covid 19 Response

UPDATED MESSAGE FOR CLIENTS

In response to state and local health guidelines, please review the information below to learn more about our current policies. Please know, we are working very hard to balance the health and safety of our patients, clients, and staff.

If you are an existing oncology client and have questions, email oncology@colostate.edu. For new patient questions, please call 970-297-5000. If your pet has symptoms of acute concern, please seek local emergency or urgent care for immediate assistance. The Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital also offers 24/7 urgent and emergency care services.


Current Chemotherapy Patients

At this time, we will continue to provide chemotherapy for existing patients; however, we will work with your regular veterinary team if needed. A FACC staff member will contact you to provide specific directions and answer your questions. Current chemotherapy patients needing to schedule appointments are asked to email oncology@colostate.edu.

Current Radiation Therapy Patients

If your pet is currently undergoing radiation therapy, a radiation oncology staff member will contact you regarding scheduling. New radiation cases will be limited to emergency/urgent cases as determined by the oncology faculty in conjunction with the hospital emergency management team.

Recheck Appointments

A FACC staff member will reach out to you by phone before your pet's scheduled appointment to provide guidance. For routine recheck appointments, we may recommend going to your local veterinarian or having a Skype or Zoom discussion. For suture removal appointments, we may ask for photos of the surgical site to determine the best course of action. Routine rechecks, i.e., 3-6 month rechecks, may be postponed, or we may recommend you see your local veterinarian. If you feel your pet is not well, please contact us to discuss options or reach out to your veterinarian.

Clinical Trials Patients

As we thoughtfully transition to full service, we are now enrolling new patients in a limited number of clinical trials. Please click here to learn more. We will continue to see patients that are already enrolled in clinical trials and require treatment. If you have any questions, you can contact the clinical trials service at 970-297-4001 or by email at csuoncologytrials@colostate.edu.  

Our Vaccine Against Canine Cancer Study (VACCS) is also enrolling new patients. Click here to learn more.

New Patient Appointments

Following local health department guidelines, we are slowly adding new patient appointments to our weekly schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition time. To learn more about schedule openings, please call 970-297-5000.

We also have a well-established Consult Service, and we encourage you to submit your questions through this service. We try our best to respond within three business days.
