Cancer is the number-one killer of American pets. With this easy-to-use yet comprehensive guide, veterinarian Shawn Messonnier, one of the nation's leading experts on integrative veterinary medicine, presents the latest research on both treating new diagnoses of cancer and preventing cancer before it takes the lives of our beloved family dogs. In addition to conventional treatments, Dr. Messonnier presents detailed information on such complementary therapies as antioxidants, herbal preparations, homeopathic remedies, raw food, nutritional supplements, and acupuncture. While no therapy is right for every dog, Dr. Messonnier's book gives pet owners the vital information they need to explore all their options with their veterinarian.


“Dr. Messonnier's landmark work is a comprehensive, practical guide to a subject that every pet owner should be concerned about.”
— Michael T. Murray, ND, coauthor of How to Prevent and Treat Cancer with Natural Medicine

“This is a truly important book, vital to all dog owners. Cancer is a leading cause of death in older dogs, and unfortunately, veterinarians are seeing cancer in younger and younger animals as well. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but with this book, you get a ton of each! This is, without question, the most comprehensive book available on this topic.”
— Jean Hofve, DVM, holistic feline veterinarian and founder of

“This responsible and wonderful contribution is clear and pragmatic. Dr. Shawn Messonnier provides a better understanding of canine cancer and the best treatments that combine conventional and complementary methods. Readers will obtain not only a better appreciation of the author's expertise on the subject but also his compassion for his canine patients and their owners. A must-read for those interested in proactive and preventive measures against this disease.”
— Thomas Nelson, president of the Perseus Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to animal cancer research and education
