Cancer is leading cause of death in dogs and cats over ten years old; 47% of dogs and 32% of cats will die from cancer in their later lives. Fifty percent of all pet cancers are completely curable and many others can be successfully treated. An award-winning veterinarian and writer team up to present the latest research and treatments to save your beloved pet from cancer in "Cancer and Your Pet." A growing number of pet owners are learning the sad news that their beloved pet is suffering from some form of cancer. But most don't realize that it has become a highly treatable disease.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cancer and Your Pet: The Complete Guide to the Latest Research, Treatments, and Options?

Cancer and Your Pet  Mar 15, 2007
Good information for people going through the struggle of cancer with their pet.
Good overview of cancer treatments in dogs and cats  Feb 7, 2007
looks at both conventional and alternative options. I did not find alot on what I was looking for: lung tumours in dogs but on the general topic this book was very informative .
Potentially helpful, reassuring, alarming.  Dec 7, 2006
A clear, comprehensive, sensible introduction and overview--as much information as the non-professional needs. There's one area that may set off unnecessary alarms. The author gives encouraging news and advice concerning pets with cancer, treatments, and prognosis with one notable exception: cancer that has been caused by vaccination, for which, the author says, there is no cure. This led me to do a Google search and discover similar grim information, except magnified and multiplied.

The truth appears to be that the problem--although a cause-effect connection has been established in some instances--is extremely rare and that worse harm may be inflicted upon a pet by not vaccinating it. I learned the foregoing not from my local vet but by driving kitty across state to the University of Wisconsin Veterinary School--which in addition to addressing the concern about vaccinations was able to determine that my local vet's diagnosis of cancer was a misdiagnosis (common bacterial infections can lead to limping, bone erosion and other symptoms of cancer).
Good general overview  Jan 19, 2006
My cat way diagnosed with cancer about 5 months ago. I found this book to be the most helpful in understanding her cancer (GI lymphoma) without being overly filled with jargon. It was also the best on helping me understand the treatments available (and why some weren't for my cat) but I wish it had gone into more technical detail about the various medications and what they do for chemotherapy. Unfortunately, none of the books I found provided that information. I like the fact that the book separates out discussion on dogs and cats. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone with a pet with cancer.
The Most Up-To-Date book on Cancer and Pets  Sep 26, 2005
Hi there, this is Margaret H Bonham, the co-author of Cancer and Your Pet. Unlike some authors who have a secret agenda when it comes to treating cancer, both Deb and I wanted you to get all the information out there when it comes to cancer and your pet.

When your pet has cancer, it's a scary time for you. You don't know who to turn to for advice. Quite frankly, most cancer is curable or we can do something about it. It's very important to understand the options, whether conventional or holistic.

This book gives a good overview to each of the cancers you're likely to run across in dogs and cats and the modes of treatment currently available. We talk about cancer research -- what's the latest thing out there and how you can get involved in cutting-edge studies. We also about decision-making -- is this something you can afford and how far do you wish to go when treating the cancer? We talk about care for the cancer patient and how to recognize an emergency versus whether this is really a problem. We even cover holistic options -- something most books either don't cover or cover to the point of excluding other highly successful conventional treatments.

Both Deb and I have had dogs who died from cancer. We know what you're going through. Check out our book. You'll be glad you did.
