Dr. Arteaga and her staff go above and beyond. They are so good at what they do and they are incredibly compassionate. I am so grateful for their kindness.

Our elderly ridgeback generally hates the vet but does not put up a fuss when he comes to see Dr. Arteaga. Maybe it is the treats. Or is it the collection of massage tools that she uses liberally on his back while she sits on the floor next to him? Dr. Arteaga is very practical, reassuring and has an approach that maximizes quality of life for the dog and only recommends treatment if it will help the dog live a longer life AND that life will be happy and comfortable. Our ridgeback is 13.5 and still happy and thriving thanks to Dr. Arteaga and her staff.

I wish I could submit a higher rating. These professionals are amazing, honest, compassionate, and genuinely care about pets and their owners. I only wish I would have met people like them years ago. A++. Thank you for giving our family hope.

My Dog, who has always been extremely anxious whenever getting medical care, didn't even realize he was at a medical office. The Atmosphere is warm, but mostly the staff are incredible! And Theresa treated Beau as though he was her own each time. I could tell he trusted her. We were in very good hands...and it didn't hurt that he got a bowl of chicken every time we visited!

I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Arteaga and her staff at the Animal Cancer Center. Our dog was dying (refusing food or drink for 48 hours and extremely weak and sad) when we brought him there to see what our options were, thinking we could not afford further treatment (having just spent a small fortune at the emergency vet on the weekend). We were wrong!
Dr. Arteaga is a brilliant, gifted healer. She's got tricks up her sleeve and tools in her tool box. She explains options clearly and is a good listener. She has been very patient with all of our questions.
Our dog is happy and home, eating and active.
Thank you ACC for giving us our dog back!!
I am eternally grateful (and Palo thanks you for all the chicken).

We are sincerely grateful to Dr. Arteaga and her AMAZING! staff at Animal Cancer Center. They have helped us through the difficult process of dealing with lymphoma on our boy Max. Nobody wants to go through that process, but it helps to have the best trained animal oncologist in the area on your side.
From the moment we met Dr. Arteaga, we knew we were in good hands. She was able to explain all of our options so we could make the best decision. Her calming energy in addition to her complete confidence in her staff and protocol, made us feel comfortable and at ease with the entire process. Having never personally experienced cancer in any human or animal, she really helped us through this difficult time.
They have now been treating our chocolate lab (Max) for lymphoma for about 6 months and they have been kind, compassionate, accommodating, and positively optimistic. They truly care about each one of their patients and their owners. They have given our boy Max so much love over the past 6 months that other than a cure for cancer we could not ask for more.
We will put any treatment, medication, procedure as a priority. Our boy comes first in our life and we are so thankful to have found the Animal Cancer Center of Monterey

Grateful it’s so close by. Great doctors, techs and staff. Everybody is Comforting and reassuring when you’re not.
- Leslie Tau-Holzhausen
Comforting, caring, everything you want when you walk in with your heart breaking for your dog with Stage 4 lymphoma, Dr. Arteaga and staff truly understand. I am grateful to my vet, Dr. Lynda Wells, for referring Bwootuss and I to Animal Cancer Center.
- Tony Stork
Dr. Arteaga and staff were very friendly and compassionate. My cat sadly did not survive but the dr. and staff knew I needed to try, and helped me figure out when it was time to let our beloved Kiwiki go.

Our dog Benson is now in remission. We agree that had we not had the skilled, caring expertise of Dr. Arteaga and her wonderful competent staff we would have already lost him. She immediately targeted the problem vs. test after test to figure it out. Benson is always a "good boy" because he knows he gets nice chunks of cooked chicken after a test or his chemo! We do not feel the fees are any higher than what our local vet would have charged; being that cancer is her sole focus made every penny worth it! Every "new" day that Benson gets makes us happy!!
If I could give 10 or 15 stars I would. We have been working with Dr. Arteaga and her wonderful team for 6 months and I cannot thank them enough for our experience. They have provided an incredibly compassionate and knowledgeable experience that has helped our dog live not only a longer life, but one with a higher quality of life than expected. Dr. Arteaga clearly cares for each patient and their case, consistently going the extra mile to care for and diagnose the issue. Her staff mirrors her commitment to the animal and to the family. Dr. Arteaga had been able to provide a clear understanding of our dog's cancer and the optional pathways forward. She is truly the best to see if you are faced with the need. Thank you Dr. Arteaga.
We are sincerely grateful to Dr. Arteaga and the staff at Animal Cancer Center for helping us through the difficult process of dealing with lymphoma in our best friend, Honeybear. Nobody wants to go through that process, but it helps to have the best trained animal oncologist in the area on your team.
From the moment we met Dr. Arteaga, we knew we were in good hands. She was able to explain all of our options so we could make the best decision. Most importantly, she made us feel comfortable and at ease with the entire process. Having never personally experienced cancer in any human or animal, she really helped us through this difficult time.
We initially met Dr. Arteaga when she worked in Santa Cruz. She moved her office to Monterey and we decided to stay with her instead of utilizing a different local vet oncologist because we were impressed with her expertise.
Dr. Arteaga and staff were very caring, very attentive to our needs, and were ultimately everything we could ask for in a vet.
We were able to get extra time with our Honeybear, and for that, we are forever grateful to Dr. Arteaga.
Thank you for your help and support,
Dylan and Jessica
Wonderful to work with Dr. Arteaga was born to do this.... her love and passion for animals is unsurpassed. How lucky we are to have her.
- Denise Rainoldi
5 stars just isn't enough for Dr. Arteaga and her AMAZING staff! They have been treating my dog for lymphoma for almost 2 years now and they have been kind, compassionate, accommodating, and any other positive adjective you can think of... They truly care about each one of their patients and their owners. They have given my dog so much love over the years and i couldn't ask for anything more... other than a cure for cancer! Thank you ACC team times a million!
The staff is very caring and friendly and Doctor Arteaga is the best.

Dr. Arteaga and her team are incredible. I first met her when she was working one day a week in Capitola, and she literally brought my beloved cat back from the brink of death. He has lost a lot of weight, and after going through endless series of tests at other vets, we finally found Dr. Arteaga who diagnosed him quickly and started treatment immediately. I thought I was going to loose him, but that was now 3 years ago and he is healthy and well! You can tell how much Dr. Arteaga and the staff love animals. Best pet oncologist ever!!!
Thank you Dr. Arteaga and team for doing all you could for my Oliver and treating us both with care and compassion, and always putting the patient first. Your dedication and love for the animals you work with is so apparent and appreciated. We couldn't have asked for a better medical team on this journey.
Life saving care for our Mikha and Pepper! Wonderful Dr. Arteaga and staff. Thank you!

Dr. Theresa Arteaga is a highly respected Animal Oncologist, recommended twice to me by my veterinarian, Dr. James Holt. Dr. Arteaga's staff is warm and welcoming, as are her new patient rooms, which are designed for comfort of both patient and owner. One could not hope for a more caring and capable Animal Cancer Specialist than Dr. Arteaga.
