Lori Cesario, DVM, Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology)
Dr. Cesario is a board-certified Medical oncologist and the founder of Vet Cancer Consultants.
She keeps very busy as a locum oncologist when she is not providing online consults.
She created Vet Cancer Consultants to help support veterinarians and provide oncologist advice to more pet owners via thorough, detailed vet-to-vet consultations, with a quick turnaround. No-one should have to wait weeks for an oncology consult.
Lori is originally from Long Island, NY. She received a Bachelor’s degree in animal bioscience from Penn State University before attending veterinary school at Ross University and completing a clinical year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After veterinary school, she completed a one-year rotating internship at the University of Illinois, followed by a one-year oncology internship at NC State University. Lori then moved back to the Midwest to complete a Medical Oncology Residency at Michigan State University. In 2013 she moved to California to practice oncology in private practice and has worked in specialty clinics in both the Bay Area and Ventura. Her focus is to now dedicate her time and knowledge to Vet Cancer Consultants and reach a broader audience. When she’s not working she enjoys hiking, improving her fledgling tennis skills, plant-based cooking, the beautiful Ojai Valley, and just having some downtime!
