DVM, MS, DACVIM/Oncology
Dr. Lindsay Donnelly completed her DVM at the University of Missouri in 2008 and entered small animal general practice in Las Vegas, NV. She was drawn to specialize in the field of oncology both due to the scientific complexity of the disease and the bonds formed between doctor, pet, and pet owner when dealing with a diagnosis of cancer. She completed a radiation oncology internship at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, a master's degree in nuclear medicine and radiobiology in 2013, and a residency in medical oncology in 2015 at the University of Missouri. She started an oncology service at BluePearl Oklahoma City, and in 2018, she was honored to receive the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association Young Veterinarian of the Year Award. She joined the faculty of the University of Missouri as an assistant professor of medical oncology in 2018 where she divided her time between research and teaching of veterinary students, interns, and residents. Her primary research interests include the gut microbiome as it relates to chemotherapy efficacy and tolerability, and she was the principal investigator or co-investigator on numerous studies and clinical trials. During her time at the University of Missouri, she was most proud to have received the SAVMA Teaching Award for Clinical Sciences in 2021. She enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and Portuguese Water Dog, Dempsey. She loves CrossFit, soccer, crafts, travelling, and all outdoor activities (especially lake time!).
