- On the day of your appointment: Please call the office to let us know you are here.
° If you have any upper respiratory symptoms (cough, runny nose etc), or have traveled to high-risk areas in the past 14 days, and your pet needs to be seen, please arrange for a symptom-free individual to drop-off your pet.
- One of our office staff members will go out to your vehicle and collect your pet.
- Clients are welcome to stay at the office in their vehicles, wait outside or they are welcome to leave and our staff will give you a call once your pet is ready for pick up.
- We will keep your pet at our office for treatment and keep you in the loop throughout their visit.
- Dr. Kelly will give clients a call with an update regarding the treatment of your pet.
- If for some reason you are asked to come into the clinic. You will be placed immediately into an exam room and asked to remain in the room for the duration of your pet’s visit.
- All estimates for services will be sent via email.
- Clients are asked to respond to the email with their sign-off
- Once your pet’s treatment is complete we will give you a call.
- All payments will be taken over the phone or at your vehicle.
- A staff member will then discharge your pet at your vehicle and email discharges to you.
- All of our office staff will be wearing medical masks, gloves and eyewear at all times.
*** For prescription and supplement pick up, please call into the office for a refill. Once you are at the office please call ahead and we will bring your pet’s prescriptions and supplements out to your vehicle. We are trying to decrease traffic in the clinic. This may take a little more time than usual but we ask for your patience and cooperation in keeping each other safe.
VCC would like all of our clients to know that we always use Rescue concentrate to clean at our clinic. Rescue is a one step disinfectant cleaner that is virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal and sanitizer. Rescue has been proven to kill COVID-19.
In regard to pet risk and infection,
“Infectious disease experts and multiple international and domestic human and animal health organizations agree there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets can spread COVID-19 to other animals, including people.” – American Veterinary Medical Association.
New office policy will come into effect Wednesday, the 18th March.
We would like to thank all of our clients for their understanding and patience during this difficult time.

NOW RECRUITING DOGS
Clinical trial using immunotherapy for palliation
Veterinary Cancer Care (Santa Fe, New Mexico) is looking for dogs with any type of malignant tumor for a pilot clinical trial assessing Immunocidin® immunotherapy as a sole palliative treatment. Your oncology specialist is now accepting patients for this study.
Eligibility: All dogs enrolled in this clinical trial must meet the following criteria:
√ Have confirmed diagnosis of cancer by histopathology
√ Have declined chemotherapy at the time it was offered
√ Have completed prior chemotherapy, radiation or immunotherapy at least 2 weeks prior to enrollment
Eligible dogs cannot:
✘ Have anticipated life expectancy of less than 1 month
✘ Have other life-threatening diseases
✘ Have concurrent corticosteroid, chemotherapy, radiation or immunotherapy treatment
For eligible, enrolled dogs, the clinical trial will cover up to $100 of histopathology costs and the immunotherapy will be given free of charge.
If we could look every pet owner in the eyes, we would tell you that pet cancer is treatable and may be preventable. The truth is that almost every pet with cancer can be helped. Every day our patients show us that cancer is no reason to stop living and loving life!

Cancer in Pets
Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of damaged cells. Cells are the basic building blocks of our bodies and normally grow.
Veterinary Cancer Care is committed to furthering the field of oncology by participating in and initiating clinic trials research.
Our pets are family members, and hearing a cancer diagnosis can feel traumatic and overwhelming.While your pet needs.
We love our patients!
Dr. Kelly and the gang have made Bridget a new dog! She’s been in remission from lymphoma for many months and has never been healthier or happier. She’s 8 1/2 and acts like a puppy.
Along with Dr. Kelly’s specialized cancer treatment for lymphoma, Bridget was prescribed some very valuable supplements that have kept her in incredible shape, physically and mentally. We can’t thank Dr. Kelly and her team enough for what she has done for Bridget.
Many thanks from Sandy, Carol, and Bridget
A veterinarian in Seattle in 2004 diagnosed Athena with squamous cell cancer in the mouth and gave her 3 months to live. Through a move, we found Dr. Jeannette Kelly of Veterinary Cancer Care. After just 2 treatments, she was cured fully and lived in health and vitality for the remainder of her life. We were able to fulfill our promise to Athena because of the miraculous work of Dr. Kelly and her staff. ~ Kennedy and Gregg
Today, we carry on Athena’s memory through an emergency relief fund at the Santa Fe Community Foundation. The Athena Fund has been established to provide supplemental funds to pet owners to help offset the cost of cancer care for their pets. At Veterinary Cancer Care, we have been asked over and over if there is an easy way to help other families facing pet cancer. If you would like to donate please consider the Athena Fund. Donations to the Athena Fund can be made through the Santa Fe Community Foundation in 4 easy steps.
- Visit the Santa Fe Community Foundation Give Now page
- Type Athena Fund into Fund Search box
- Fill out the amount, donor acknowledgement (if desired), and memorial tribute information.
