Praise from Veterinarians, Authors & Book Reviewers

Dr. Marty Goldstein, DVM

"The message of this book jumps off the written page and into the heart of every reader, and will become the at home bible for cancer care of dogs.

Dr. Robert B. Cohen, VMD

"I wish that I had had The Dog Cancer Survival Guide when my dearly beloved Flat-coated Retriever, Odin, contracted cancer. It would have provided me alternative courses of action, as well as some well needed "reality checks" which were not available from conversations with my veterinarian. It should be on every dog owner's book shelf--just in case..."
Dr. Stanley Coren, PhD, FRSC
author of many books, including Born to Bark

"A comprehensive guide that distills both alternative and allopathic cancer treatments in dogs...With the overwhelming amount of conflicting information about cancer prevention and treatment, this book provides a pet owner with an easy to follow approach to one of the most serious diseases in animals."

It covers canine cancer topics to an unprecedented depth and breadth from emotional coping strategies to prevention-in plain English.Read this book, and you will understand cancer stages, treatment options, and types, and much more. If you have just had the dreaded news, pick up a copy and it will guide the decisions your dog trusts you to make."

Editorial Reviews

Robert Eagan
With this book, canine cancer—the number one killer of dogs—loses some of its sting. The message that the dreaded diagnosis is not necessarily a death sentence will reassure many readers...Clever use of sidebars(part of the book's "Dummies"-style packaging).. Verdict: Faced with a bewildering set of circumstances, owners of dogs with cancer will welcome this guide, which will help them calm down, think clearly, consider the options, and, ultimately, make more confident decisions
