Owner Travels from California for Treatment at VMTH


Karen Young believes in doing anything she can to care for her pets – even if that means driving 2,000 miles for treatment. Recently, Young, her brother-in-law, Ron Lehman, and Young’s dogs, Tartufo and Milagros, traveled from Mountain View, Calif., to treat Tartufo’s cancer at the University of Missouri Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.

Tartufo, or Tufo, as Young calls her 9-year-old mixed-breed dog, initially had his apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinoma removed surgically in December 2012. When the cancer returned in October 2013, Young and her veterinarian decided to get a second opinion from Dr. Jeffrey Bryan, associate professor of oncology at the MU College of Veterinary Medicine. Bryan had been Young’s veterinarian several years earlier when he lived in California and also had been a classmate of her current veterinarian, Dr. Jenny Taylor. In addition, Bryan had a good record of success treating aggressive cancers like Tufo’s, Lehman said.
