Leading Your Dog's Cancer Team as the Coach [MP3]

Ask Dr. Dressler: Coaching Your Team

Most of us leave medical management to the medical professionals. But when it comes to dog cancer, it may be a good idea to take a different approach.

With so many options, and no “right way” to treat most cancers, it’s important for the guardian to step up and be the leader.

In this seminar, you will learn Dr. D’s system for how to effectively hire, coach and lead:

  • Your medical team (veterinarian, oncologist, and any other technician you may need)
  • Your dog
  • Yourself
  • Emotions
  • Finances
  • Time
  • And so much more…

As always, Dr. Dressler answers reader questions in this seminar.
