Dr. Abbott has always had a special interest in cancer medicine since before vet school graduation from CSU in 2000. She had advanced training in oncology at CSU and MSU during a post-graduate internship. Now in general private practice at Vista Animal Hospital in Erie, Colorado, she always focuses on quality of life while offering clients all of their options: performing advanced surgeries (amputations, splenectomies, and tumor removals of all types, including one on a goldfish once), chemotherapy, referrals to specialists, or hospice care.
She was recognized by her peers as one of top seven vets in the Denver area in the 5280 magazine for her care of cancer patients in 2007. Recently, Dr. Abbott was among a small panel of vets who together wrote the AAHA 2016 oncology guidelines. These guidelines are used by vet across the country as a reference for current standards of care in cancer medicine.
