Grieving Dog Cancer [MP3]

Ask Dr. Dressler: Grief and Dog Cancer

Grief is an emotion that is felt by just about every guardian dealing with dog cancer – and it is almost never addressed directly.

In this supportive and nuanced seminar, Dr. Dressler talks about the grueling nature of dealing with dog cancer, and how to cope with it.

This is an important topic for every dog guardian, and deserves a lot more attention than it gets.

After all, the outcome of chronic disease can be affected by the mindset of the dog -- but, also by the mindset of the guardian!

As always, Dr. Dressler also answers reader questions during this seminar.
