Exciting things are happening at the Animal Medical Center of Seattle and we’re so happy to be able to share them with you. In addition to this beautiful new website – our team is growing!
We have two big announcements! 1. Join us in welcoming Dr. Mary Davis, DVM, DACVIM! She will be joining us July 10th to work in our Oncology department with Dr. Harris. 2. We will be extending our services to 6 days a week on July 10th as well (Mon-Sat) to serve our referral community and clients better.
Dr. Mary Davis, DVM, DACVIM grew up in central Texas along the Guadalupe River. After graduating from Texas A & M College of Veterinary Medicine, her adventures took her to California where she completed a small animal medical and surgical internship at Coast Animal Hospital and Animal Cancer Center in Hermosa Beach. For the next few years, her interests focused on emergency medicine, which she practiced in California and South Carolina. In 2000, she and her husband settled back in Southern California. It was then she realized that many of the older patients she was treating in her emergency duties were often diagnosed with cancer. This inspired her to pursue a medical oncology residency which she completed in 2006 at Veterinary Cancer Group in Tustin, California. She became board certified in medical oncology in 2011.
This chapter in her life has taken her to the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the Animal Medical Center of Seattle. Her primary interests include helping her patients and their families through the journey of cancer therapy, focusing on the quality of life of all involved. Dr. Davis understands a pet diagnosed with cancer can be a challenging time for the families involved. She likes to spend the time to present options, determine what the family feels is important, and guide in making treatment decisions. The primary focus of any cancer treatment is maintaining a good quality of life for all involved (patient and family), and she wants the family to feel comfortable with the decision they have made. Some of Dr. Davis’ interests include low dose metronomic chemotherapy and therapy with drugs called “small molecule inhibitors.” She feels the treatment should never be worse than the disease.
She shares her home with her husband Steve, their dog Kalik, and “foster” dog, Lily (now in the family for 2+ years!). When she’s not working, she enjoys travel adventures and loves anything that takes her outside such as cycling, paddling, and hiking.
