Biography: 

Dr Robat has been caring for oncology patients in Wisconsin and beyond since 2007. She was a clinical instructor in Medical Oncology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison UW Veterinary Care until she joined the team at VES/VSC in April 2016. She is known for her compassion, and dedication to clients, patients, and referring veterinarians. She is very passionate about her job, and cares deeply for her patients. She always strives to provide pet-parents with all options, from the most aggressive to the least aggressive and strongly believes that there is no right answer, just the right answer for that individual patient. Quality of life is always the priority when treating pets with cancer. 
 
Dr Robat’s research has been widely published in the field of veterinary oncology. She has been invited to present at many national and international conferences, and won an award for her research. She continues to be actively involved in clinical research, and collaborates with other oncologists on a variety of studies.
