Finding resources, websites, books and more can make a big difference in the survival and quality of life for your dog. “We are doing our best to spread the word about dog cancer.” said Melinda Sargent of Timber Dog Cancer. With 1 in 4 dogs being diagnosed with dog cancer there is an epidemic amongst our four legged friends. There are few resources out there that address the complex area of dog cancer and what someone can do for their beloved furry friend.
Your veterinarian is great for treating your dog with traditional therapies such as radiation and chemotherapy. There are many things your dog will depend on you to do outside of what the veterinarian does. “You have to be a little bit of a detective” says Melinda Sargent of TimberDogCancer.com. You need to learn about special diets as a dog’s metabolism has changed now they have cancer. Diet alone can play a big factor in your dog’s ability to “fight” cancer and the quality of life your dog will have. There are new therapies that research shows to be effective against cancer as well. Certain supplements have been shown in research to help give your dog with the fight with cancer. Doing your own research can help you and your dog make this journey together and improve his quality of life.
Many dog owners find peace when they can share their painful journey with other dog lovers. It is one of the areas TimberDogCancer.com is looking to expand and get the word out that. There is a forum on the website so dog owners can talk with each other. It can be a lonely and dark journey and being able to talk with others can help ease the pain and loneliness.
