Dog Cancer Surgery [MP3]

Ask Dr. Dressler: Cancer Surgery

Chances are, you haven't really heard the full scoop on surgery -- because most vets only talk about the at-home care required AFTER the surgery is over, when they're handing over your groggy, stitched up dog.

In this eye-opening seminar, Dr. Dressler tells you everything you need to know about cancer surgeries – including what actually goes on during the surgery itself. This is stuff most vets don’t have time to tell you about. In this seminar he addresses:

  • Why preparing your dog for surgery is so important
  • The difference between curative surgery and palliative surgery
  • Under what circumstances you should probably agree to surgery
  • Under what circumstances you may want to decline surgery
  • Steps to take at home to get your dog (and you) ready for surgery
  • How to be your dog’s Primary Health Advocate: what questions to ask your vet, and how to ask them
  • Post-surgical biopsies and why they are critical 
  • How to take care of your dog at home after the surgery is finished

As always, Dr. Dressler also answers questions from members about their dog’s cancer.
