On The Job

Dr. Kelly Kezer was intrigued by the field of veterinary oncology because the understanding of cancer has changed so much over the past few decades. She likes the challenge of trying to understand the complexity of the disease, as well as discovering ways to treat and overcome it. Dr. Kezer’s clinical interests include lymphoma, osteosarcoma and histiocytic sarcoma, and she is  excited about new treatment options, to include targeted and combination therapy and immunotherapy.
