Poppy with Dr. Kerry Rissetto, Oncologist at Charleston Veterinary Referal Center. Poppy's First Day of Chemo

Poppy with Dr. Kerry Rissetto, Oncologist at Charleston Veterinary Referral Center. Poppy's First Day of Chemo
The night of August 2nd, Poppy didn’t eat dinner. Micheal and I looked at each other, neither of us wanting to speak out loud our greatest fear â€" if Poppy doesn’t eat, something is gravely wrong. I called her amazing oncologist (it was a Friday night and she was at a rehearsal dinner), we talked and she thought that Poppy might be having a reaction to the chemo. Then she began vomiting and started getting sicker, over the next several hours we were in constant touch with her oncologist and as Poppy laid in my arms I prayed she’d rebound. At a little after midnight we knew we couldn’t wait any longer and bundled Poppy up to make a mad dash to the emergency hospital. By the time we arrived she was listless and her blood pressure had plummeted. We authorized any and all tests and treatments necessary to save our sweet girl.  Just before 5 a.m. as the rest of the world slept and after a long and emotionally excruciating night, the emergency vet told us that there was little hope that our girl would recover. He believed that the tumor had thrown a clot and she was going into organ failure. Poppy’s oncologist called and we talked and cried and made the decision to say goodbye to our beloved girl. As we stood there stroking her soft fur and whispering to her how very much she was loved, both Micheal and I knew there would never be another Poppy. She came into our lives as a mystery and left as our treasured fur child.
It’s hard to comprehend just how empty a house can feel with three dogs and two cats, but our home isn’t the same without our funny eared girl bouncing around. Before Poppy went to the rainbow bridge I had started working on a few designs in her honor. I made several cuff bracelets but hadn’t had a chance to get them on my website. After she was gone, it took me several weeks before I could even think of making a piece of jewelry and then one day the fog lifted and I was inspired to create this beautiful Poppy pendant in memory of my girl.

Kerry Rissetto, DVM, DACVIM (Oncology )
Kerry Rissetto grew up in New Jersey but has spent her entire adult life in the Midwest. After receiving her Bachelor's Degree from the University of Notre Dame, she received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine Magna Cum Laude from the University of Illinois. She did her small animal rotating internship at the University of Missouri and happily stayed on for a 3 year Oncology residency after her internship. During her residency, she also received a Master's Degree with her research focused mainly on immune system dysfunction in cancer patients, and how the immune system might be modified to better recognize and eliminate cancer cells in patients with lymphoma and osteosarcoma. Kerry completed her Oncology residency and became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Oncology) in July of 2011. Kerry is extremely passionate, not only about the specialty of Oncology, but more specifically, her patients. "I am so grateful to be in a specialty that attracts the very best and most dedicated clients and patients; My patients are those that have lived wonderful lives with families that care for them enormously and seek out cutting edge care for their companions. I owe it to these patients to see to it that whatever time they have remaining (be it months or years) is GOOD quality time to spend with the families that love them."
Dr. Rissetto's goal is to change the way pet owners view the word "cancer" and all that it implies.
Dr. Rissetto is available for appointments at the Cancer Center at CVRC Monday through Friday and encourages pet owners to come for a consultation to discuss what is new in veterinary oncology and what cutting edge treatment options are available to their pets. "Most of my clients are pleasantly surprised with the treatment options we have to offer, as well as the prognosis for long-term management and survival. Some cancers require only surgery to provide a cure, while other cancers will require further follow-up therapy and long-term management. Regardless, a visit will help us determine the best treatment that meets the client's goals for the care of their beloved pet."
In her free time, Dr. Rissetto enjoys playing volleyball, traveling, and spending time with her dog, Elvis. She is excited to be in Charleston and looks forward to exploring the city.
