Originally from the East Coast, Dr. Kathy Andres dreamed of becoming a veterinarian from an early age. She attended the University of Pennsylvania then moved to the west coast and went to veterinary school at UC Davis. She completed her internship at the Animal Medical Center in New York City and then completed her oncologist residency at Bay Area Veterinary Specialists. In between internship and residency, she worked as a general practitioner and emergency doctor, adopted her daughter, and settled down in her beloved city of San Francisco.
Dr. Andres enjoys all aspects of oncology; getting to know the pets and their owners, and hearing their stories about their special bonds with each other. She is proud to have been oncologist to several generations of pets in the same families. Her special interests are targeted and new therapies for all types of oncologic diseases, increasing her patient’s quality of life and keeping them happy and at home.
