Overview

Fifty percent of the 65 million dogs in the U.S. are expected to have cancer in their lifetimes, yet most caretakers know little or nothing about caring for a dog with cancer. Author Laurie Kaplan, MSC, medical animal writer, provides a soup to nuts education about canine cancer, in a uniquely personal style, in language that laypersons grasp easily. Laurie also shares the story of her own canine cancer surivor, Bullet, and their triumphant battle against against his cancer.

Help Your Dog Fight Cancer educates owners about causes, prevention and early detection. For those who have a dog with cancer, the book is a crash course in diagnostics, treatment options. Covers traditional and holistic therapies and home care options, including diet, remedies for side effects, and supplemements.

The first edition of this book helped fifteen thousand caretakers. It won finalist awards from Foreword Magazine and Independent Publishers (IPPY) contests. The 2nd Edition provides updated and expanded information and a new final chapter covering palliative care (Pawspice), euthanasia, cremation and burial, and grief.

    Help your Dog fight Canine Cancer

    When we found that our beloved Lab had cancer, we researched books that would help us to help him. The books by Laurie Kaplan are always rated highly and we truly found the Help your Dog Fight Cancer to be a good resource. At a trying time, it is wonderful to have something to read that helps and makes a difference in your pet's care.
