Wesley Campbell, DVM, MS

Board Certified in Oncology by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine

As a board-certified oncology specialist, Dr. Wesley Campbell sees often how the bonds between pets and their families can grow stronger after a cancer diagnosis. She also knows this first-hand; her dog, Broadway, was diagnosed with cancer when Campbell was a veterinary student.

A Greenville, S.C, native, Dr. Campbell brings expertise and innovation in veterinary oncology to CARE. She specializes in the treatment of sarcomas, as well as lymphoma and leukemia. She speaks regularly at local and national veterinary meetings on small-animal oncology. She also utilizes novel therapeutics to treat cancer holistically.

Her goal: To provide the best care while maximizing her patients’ quality of life – just as she saw with Broadway. “I want to share the compassion, support and medical expertise with others that I experienced,” she says.
