Pituitary Surgery Service Support Fund

Your gift can provide life-saving pituitary surgery to dogs with Cushing’s disease or cats with acromegaly.

WSU is the only veterinary hospital in the country performing transsphenoidal hypophysectomy, or pituitary gland removal to treat these diseases.

The Pituitary Surgery Service at the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital is committed to providing the very best surgical care for your dog or cat. The board-certified veterinary team is led by pituitary surgical specialist Dr. Tina Owen (‘92 DVM), who was the first veterinarian in the United States to perform transsphenoidal hypophysectomy surgery. The team also includes veterinary neurologist Dr. Annie Chen-Allen and critical care specialist Dr. Linda Martin along with neurology residents and veterinary technicians specializing in surgery, neurology, anesthesia, and critical care. The surgery team works collaboratively with board certified veterinarians specializing in internal medicine, radiology, and anesthesia to be able to offer our patients the best treatment options.
