Chronotherapy: Timing Your Dog's Cancer Medication [MP3]

Ask Dr. Dressler: Chronotherapy: It’s all in the timing

In this seminar, Dr. Dressler talks about the body’s circadian rhythms, and how the timing of your dog’s different body processes can figure into cancer treatments. Some treatments are both safer and more effective at certain times of day – and less safe or even harmful at other times of day!

This seminar has been on Dr. Dressler's mind for a long time. It's been on the minds of three other scientists for a long time, too – and they just won an award for it. The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded  to three scientists; Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael W. Young, who studied a gene in fruit flies to learn more about how the circadian rhythm works.

Learn more about the power of circadian rhythms and chronotherapy (time therapy) by listening to Dr. Dressler’s webinar.   

This less known – but very interesting – scientific topic will probably become much more widely understood now that the Nobel Prize has brought attention to it. Circadian rhythms are already being taken into account in other countries, including England, France and Australia, in a practice called “chronotherapy.” Listen to this seminar to find out how your dog may benefit from this research.

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