Laurie Kaplan founded the Magic Bullet Fund after her nine year old Siberian Husky “Bullet” was diagnosed with canine lymphoma. One of the various ways Laurie raises funds to help those who can’t afford cancer care for their dogs is through sales of her book Help Your Dog Fight Cancer.
Much more than just a fund-raising tool, Help Your Dog Fight Cancer is a valuable guide filled with information about how to fight the disease.
Laurie is a professional veterinary writer herself, and the book also includes input from various contributing veterinarians.
This is an indispensable guide that teaches pawrents:
- what dog cancer is
- how it’s diagnosed
- what your treatment options are
- how dogs deal with any side effects
- what kind of diet to feed your dog
- which supplements to take
- and how to care for your dog at home, during every stage of the battle.
Now in its second edition, Help Your Dog Fight Cancer features Bullet’s Survival Story and many things every pet caretaker should know about canine cancer. It is an easy to read crash course on canine cancer, for all dog lovers. The book covers prevention, diagnosis, treatment options, side effects, diet, supplements and at-home care. Tripawds recommends this book as a must-read for anyone who has a dog diagnosed with cancer of any type.
