Animal Specialty Center is pleased to announce that staff veterinary oncologist Susan Ettinger, DVM, DACVIM (Oncology) has co-authored the newly released 'The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog's Life Quality and Longevity' (Maui Media, LLC). Dr. Ettinger, in collaboration with author Dr. Damien Dressler, known as 'the Dog Cancer Vet,' has produced a comprehensive manual of evidence-based strategies that can optimize the life quality and longevity of dogs with cancer.
Statistics show that cancer is the number one killer of dogs with dogs over the age of ten having a one in two chance of developing the disease. Some popular breeds have even higher cancer rates. For those pet owners coping with the realities of their dog's cancer diagnosis, the authors, based upon decades of clinical experience and thorough research, explain dog cancer for the lay person, including:
• Everything you need to know about 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.
