In this easy-to-use guide, Dr. Shawn Messonnier offers the latest research on both treating new diagnoses of cancer and preventing the disease before it takes the life of a beloved family pet. He details a program that includes complementary therapies such as antioxidants, herbal preparations, homeopathic remedies, raw food, glandular supplements, and acupuncture. He stresses that while no one therapy is right for every pet, boosting the immune system is an excellent complement to conventional therapies like radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery, as well as an important preventive program for healthy dogs. Presenting the reader with clinical studies supporting these treatments, or with his own extensive clinical experience where studies are not yet available, Dr. Messonnier gives readers an objective and up-to-date survey, complete with the pros and cons of each treatment, of all the integrative options available for treating and preventing cancer in dogs.

“My JR recently diagnosed with cancer, had to have emergency surgery to remove his spleen. This book was recommended on Aloha Medicinals where I purchased his supplements. Upon further review, found out that this Vet also writes for the Dallas Newspaper, and my sister resides there and said his articles are very informative. I would recommend this book to anyone who is dealing with a pet with cancer. It is written in very simple terms, and is very explainitory in dealing with the complicated issues involved with the diagnoses. It does go into great detail when you are dealing with chemo treatment. For those like myself, who elected not to do chemo, it does go into the supportive holistic treatments with the herbs and other supplements. It is a step by step approach to dealing with one of the most life changing events that animal owners have to face. As a business owner(Pet Sitting) and someone who has years of vet tech experience, I would recommend this book to any of my clients.”

“MDr. Messonier discusses a lot of herbs and supplements. My dog is undergoing chemo for lymphoma. The vets and oncologists I've talked to are opposed to giving anti-oxidants during chemo. Dr. Messonier is for it and explains why. I agree with him and will continue my dog on anti-oxidants during chemo.”

“Very informative and comprehensive. Written by a veterinarian, it covets all kinds of modalities for treating cancer. Also discusses cancer prevention. My dog currently has two types of cancer unfortunately. It has been devastating. This book gives the pet guardian tne ability to exert some conntrol in a scary situation by giving you information to make choices, informed decisions regarding treatment options. However, does not delve into Traditional Chinese Medicine. But maybe that is an entirely different/other book. Well organized written.”
