Dr. Josephine McKnight
DVM, Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology)
Dr. Josephine McKnight joined the staff of Atlantic Coast Veterinary Specialists in December of 2019. She has dedicated her career to fighting cancer in pets and we are very happy to have her as part of our team. Dr. McKnight has been a longtime member of the prestigious oncology department at The Animal Medical Center. She brings a wealth of experience in medical oncology that will benefit the pets of Long Island suffering from cancer. She works hand-in-hand with our interventional radiology department to bring new cutting-edge treatments, like transarterial chemoembolization, to Long Island for treatment of certain tumors that are not amenable to surgery or traditional chemotherapy treatments.
Dr. McKnight has published research in the areas of mast cell tumor treatment, malignant melanoma, carcinomatosis, mammary gland adenocarcinoma, mesothelioma and has worked on the development of the canine malignant melanoma vaccine. She is a great addition to the fight against cancer in pets on Long Island. Remember pets can beat cancer too, you just need the right team to win!
