TrueCare for pets is excited to announce our newest addition to our Oncology Department, Dr. Jennifer Pierro, MS, DVM, DACVIM.
Dr. Pierro grew up in Sydney, Australia and California. She did her undergraduate work in psychology at UC Berkeley. Dr. Pierro then moved to Providence, Rhode Island, where she developed her passion for both basic science and clinical research during her graduate studies at Brown University. She went on to complete her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at Purdue University, during which time she discovered her fascination with oncology and cancer biology.
She completed an internship and medical oncology residency at University of Georgia. During that time, she was fortunate to have the opportunity to run clinical trials and bench top studies using feline cancer cell lines.
Dr. Pierro’s interests include feline breast cancer, feline lymphoma, novel chemotherapeutics, and drug repositioning. Most importantly, her focus is treating cancer while promoting quality of life.
She is very excited to be joining the team at Truecare and looks forward to meeting all of our wonderful pet patients and parents!
