Help Your Dog Fight Cancer is an owner's manual for the owner of a dog with cancer. It contains everything an owner needs to know in order to be a proactive, effective advocate for their dog.
Every day in the U.S., about 10,000 dogs are diagnosed with cancer. About half of our dogs will have cancer in their lifetimes. Still, owners are always shocked and depressed to hear the diagnosis. Most owners know little or nothing about how to care for a dog with cancer.
The book offers a plain-English, easy to digest explanation of cancer in dogs with a review of causes, prevention and the types of cancer. Guidance is provided for how to communicate with the veterinary medical team; provide the dog with diet and supplements to fight cancer; be prepared for cancer side effects and treatment side effects; and be prepared for the course of events that comes after a diagnosis of canine cancer.
Diagnostic testing and treatment options are discussed, as well as over-diagnosis and over-treatment. Also discussed are the decision not to provide treatment at all, and the decision to stop treatment at various points during a treatment protocol. Throughout the book, the dog's quality of life is the most important consideration in making decisions.
Through the book Help Your Dog Fight Cancer, readers learn to turn despair into confidence and become their best friend's best advocate.
