Using Oncology, Acupuncture, Herbs & Nutrition to Fight Cancer | Dr. Kendra Pope Deep Dive
Many oncologists are skeptical of integrative medicine, even though pet parents REALLY want to use it.
Kendra Pope is no skeptic. She’s a board-certified oncologist who practices in Red Bank, New Jersey. She uses oncology, but also acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition to fight dog cancer.
Her results speak for themselves. She joins us to discuss the treatments she uses in her own practice that she learned about AFTER her oncology training. Whether you’re interested in treatments they’re using in Europe (and not here), like mistletoe, how to feed your dog, or how to put together your team, this is a must-listen episode.
Welcome to the future of dog cancer treatment!
This episode is sponsored by the book The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity.
