About JVCS


In contributing to our basic principles; the development and advancement of veterinary oncology in Japan, we conducted the 1st Japan Veterinary Cancer Study Group, in February 1995 and established the Japan Veterinary Cancer Society (JVCS) on April 1, 2009. Our mission is not only to maintain the highest standards of diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients, but also to collect and analyze clinical data, to gather information on the latest advancement in clinical oncology, to pursue clinical studies for new treatments, to encourage post graduate education for veterinarians, and to collaborate in research with other departments and fields of study.
