Her professional interests include diagnosing and treating a variety of canine and feline cancers, using new and cutting edge treatments for cancer (Palladia and metronomic chemotherapy) as well as applying a thorough knowledge of standard of care options (surgery and chemotherapy).  She approaches cancer in a way that focuses on the patient's overall well-being and quality of life.  Dr. Schrempp also has an interest in treating with localized radiation therapy (strontium) for cats diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma.  When she's not taking care of cancer patients, Dr. Schrempp enjoys exploring her new home state with her West Highland White Terrier, Sam.
