M. J. Hamilton, DVM, DACVIM (ONCO)
Dr. Hamilton is a skilled medical oncologist dedicated to helping advance the field of veterinary oncology with novel treatment options and personalized care for his patients. He is a firm believer that cancer in small animals is treatable and not necessarily a terminal diagnosis. Dr. Hamilton manages patients through their cancer journey, from the moment the cancer is detected through treatment and post-treatment monitoring.
Avidly engaged in research, Dr. Hamilton has conducted studies on lymphoma in the Dogue de Bordeaux breed, reducing stress levels in dogs and, more recently, investigating owner concerns and doctor responsiveness with regard to pets undergoing chemotherapy. He is the recipient of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health "Alternatives in Animal Testing" award and was honored with a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation "Frontiers in Veterinary Medicine" summer fellowship grant. He remains actively engaged in the community and serves on the Board of Directors for Pawstrong Animal Cancer Foundation, participates in several professional societies, and presents lectures on veterinary oncology.
Dr. Hamilton earned his undergraduate and doctorate of veterinary medicine at Colorado State University and completed a medical oncology residency at Michigan State University. His special areas of interest in medical oncology include Multiple Myeloma and novel therapies for common diseases.
When not at the hospital, Dr. Hamilton enjoys gardening and hobby farming, investing, technology and automotive trends.
