Over one thousand dog owners a day get the heart-breaking news that their dog has cancer. Cancer is the single largest killer of dogs in the United States (outside of shelter euthanasia).

When a dog lover learns of the diagnosis, they often have many questions. Questions that most veterinarians don’t have the time or training to address in detail during an office visit.

A newly published book co-authored by two recognized veterinarians addresses just about every question a dog owner would want (or need) to know about canine cancer.

The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality & Longevity by Dr. Demian Dressler, DVM and Dr. Susan Ettinger, DVM, Dip. ACVIM (Oncology) was released in paperback a few months ago. The 496-page book is now the best-selling book on dog cancer in online and traditional bookstores and is receiving critical praise from both dog owners and veterinary professionals.

The book covers all aspects of canine cancer including:

  • Conventional western veterinary treatments (surgery, chemotherapy and radiation) including how to reduce their side effects.
  • The most effective non-conventional options, including botanical nutraceuticals, supplements, nutrition, and mind-body medicine.
  • How to analyze the options and develop a specific plan for your own dog based on your dog’s type of cancer, your dog’s age, your financial and time budget, your personality, and many other personal factors.

The veterinarian-authors say that “no matter what you’ve heard, there are always steps you can take to help your dog fight (and even beat) cancer.”
