Dr. Rankin enjoys many aspects of oncology, and has a special interest in electrochemotherapy to treat various tumor types (including sarcomas, melanomas, mast cell tumors, oral tumors, and more). She was the first oncologist to use electrochemotherapy for veterinary patients in California and has been doing so since 2013. While she is very interested in the science of Oncology, above all, Dr. Rankin’s favorite aspect of oncology is being able to give treatment options so clients feel comfortable with their treatment decisions to improve and maintain their pet’s quality of life.
