Customer Question

I live in Morris, Illinois. Our silky terrier, Bentley, was diagnosed with Melanoma a month ago. He received four radiation treatments for his tumor, which is located between his upper lip and gum of his mouth, at the Animal Cancer Care Clinic in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We are now back in Illinois and need to locate a Chicagoland veterinary oncologist to continue Bentley's treatment. He is receiving a series of shots which are a melanoma vaccine. He has received two thus far, and I need to make an appointment for him to receive the next two. Do you have a recommendation for a very good Chicagoland oncologist? An oncologist located in the south suburbs would be good, but I will travel into Chicago if necessary. Thank you.
