Description

A reader asks why his veterinarian didn’t wait for a biopsy before suggesting amputation for his dog’s cancer. Dr. Demian Dressler explains why that probably was. The discussion that ensues covers a wide range of topics related to osteosarcoma and other bone cancers.

This plain-language episode is a must-listen for anyone ready to hear the hard truths about bone cancer, how it arises, how it’s treated, and why it’s so painful.

And there’s hope, too – because relieving pain is possible, and that helps so much. Longevity is absolutely possible, especially when we actively address quality of life.

Dr. Demian Dressler is the author of today’s sponsor, The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity.
