Dr. Shiu has been trusted with the care of canine and feline cancer patients in SW Wisconsin since 2007, and is known for his practical yet compassionate approach to his patients. His philosophy is to provide as much support as he can to owners going through the difficulty process of managing their loved one's cancer. All of his clients have his personal email address and are encouraged to ask questions rather than worry. He strongly believes in providing options with the owner's goals and patient's prognosis in mind. As an advocate for individualized therapy, he is able to work with a client to develop unique, but evidence based protocols that suit the client and patient's needs.

Dr. Shiu has published and presented nationally research in both canine and feline oncology and he continues to contribute to research studies and publications, He is active in the local veterinary community, and co-founded the Puppy Up Madison charity walk, raising over $500,000 for cancer research in just 4 years. He was chair of the national scientific advisory board for the Puppy Up Foundation, a comparative oncology research foundation.
After veterinary school in Glasgow, Scotland, Dr Shiu completed a rotating small animal medicine and surgery internship from 2006-2007 at Cornell University Hospital for Animals. He then moved to Madison to pursue a three year residency in Medical Oncology at UW Madison. Following completion of his residency, he decided to stay in Madison, and started the VES Oncology service. He has a particular interest in lymphoma, osteosarcoma and bladder tumors. Dr Shiu lives with his wife, daughter and two cats (Baxter and Joey Tribiani).

"Dr. Shiu is not only a fellow veterinary colleague, Oncology specialist I often refer my own clients for consult, and an active community member in the successful PuppyUp fundraiser; but he has personally provided Oncology guidance and therapy for my own young poodle with Digital melanoma and my father's seeing eye service dog suffering from hemangiosarcoma. He is a dedicated, knowledgeable, caring, forthright, and personable veterinarian who really goes the distance for each and every one of his patients and their humans. Dr. Shiu and the team at VES is only a phone call away and I feel very comforted knowing my own pets and those of my clients are in the best hands." - Dr. Laura Oxley
