Your care team
Radiation Oncologist: Tracy LaDue, DVM, DACVIM (Oncology), DACVR (Radiation Oncology)
Dr. LaDue has been a practicing, board-certified radiation oncologist since 2000. In 2004, she started Southeast Veterinary Oncology (SEVO) as the first veterinary oncology practice in Jacksonville. Dr. LaDue has been the owner, lead radiation oncologist and lead medical oncologist ever since. SEVO added an internal medicine service in 2011 to become SEVO-Med and opened a second location in Jacksonville Beach in 2015. Both locations reflect her ambition to provide high-quality specialty care in a personal, family-oriented environment.
A Kentucky native, Dr. LaDue grew up in a pet-loving family surrounded by animals. She knew from the time she was in the 6th grade that she wanted to be a veterinarian. That dream became a reality at North Carolina State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Zoology, a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree, and board certification in medical oncology (1998). From there, she headed to Southwest Veterinary Oncology in Tucson, Arizona for a residency in radiation oncology, earning board-certification in that field in 2000. Dr. LaDue then moved back to Florida and practiced in Tampa for four years before arriving in Jacksonville.
