You might expect a book about a dog who gets cancer to be a depressing experience. For "Sparky Fights Back," nothing could be further from the truth. Here is a true tale, well-told with great honesty and humor that readers have found "inspiring," triumphant," and "riveting." This story will reward all animal lovers, for it�s about how a dog taught his owners courage and persistence in the face of a great challenge. Through Sparky, they found that hope can open doors - doors where miracles can pass through.
Along the way, the reader will pick up much practical knowledge about fighting cancer. Indeed, the authors� "shock and awe" approach is a model for battling this disease in humans as well as animals.
After finishing the uplifting story, caretakers of cancer dogs will find direct advice in a special section, "If Your Dog Gets Cancer." And there is and appendix full of important information and resources. The book�s foreword is by Samantha M. Schmidt, Director of the Animal Cancer Foundation.

What People are Saying About This
"If there's still any doubt that we pet parents must participate actively in pursuit of our precious companions' health and wellness, this book will put that debate to rest. Sparky's triumphant story illustrates that the more aggressively an animal's owner searches for information and alternatives to share with even the most qualified veterinarian, the better the chances for a positive outcome."
