About Lori Cesario

“My mission is to educate, support and guide dog owners after a cancer diagnosis. My goal is to give you the tools you need to make the best decisions for your dog – decisions that will allow your dog to live his best life, despite having cancer.”

Dr. Lori Cesario is a Board-Certified Veterinary Oncologist currently practicing in Southern California. She is originally from Long Island, New York but is happy to now call California home.

She received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Bioscience from Penn State University. After college, Dr. Cesario worked in a lab at Cornell University developing mouse models of human prostate and mammary cancers, amongst others. She then attended Ross University Veterinary School, with a clinical year at the University of Wisconsin. She completed two one-year internships: a small animal rotating internship at the University of Illinois, followed by an oncology specialty internship at NC State. She then returned to the Midwest for an oncology residency at Michigan State University.

Dr. Cesario is committed to maintaining a high quality of life in patients that are feeling well and improving the lives of patients that are feeling poorly. She uses her expertise to develop tailored treatment plans for each individual patient and family. Her professional interests include electrochemotherapy and histiocytic sarcoma.

When she is not at the hospital, Dr. Cesario enjoys hiking, pilates, and plant-based cooking.
