Success Stories from Other Dog Lovers
Over the years we have heard gratitude and praise from thousands of dog lovers dealing with dog cancer.
Here are just a few of the letters we have received.
“Caesar Smashed the Statistics Because of This Book”
“Caesar was diagnosed with a Mast Cell Tumor Grade/Stage III when he was just over a year old. We had a clean removal of the tumor from his inner rear thigh, and began chemo very shortly after. It was a very scary time, but we were fortunate to have a great vet who made some fantastic recommendations to a local pet store.
The pet store owner made a recommendation to a lady who specifically deals with Boxers, and she recommended The Dog Cancer Survival Guide.
We have recommended the guide to our vet and anyone we know who is going through this horrible process. Caesar has six month checkups and he is now approaching four years old. He has smashed most of the statistics out there and I directly attribute that to Dr. Dressler’s book, our support group and the diet he is now on.”
-Matt Cantine, White House, Tennessee
“The Only Comprehensive Research … With a Personal Touch”
“Dr. Dressler’s book was the only comprehensive research I was able to find on this subject. I found it to be thorough when dealing with all aspects of cancer in dogs with a personal touch that made me feel that he was addressing me personally.”
– Mike Bertuleit, Bowling Green, Kentucky
“We learned a significant amount from the book, and we continue to use it as a reference.
Our standard poodle has had a tremendous boost out of chemo (there has been only one round of the 19 week protocol), and we are now at over nineteen months since the end of chemo and we are approaching two years since diagnosis. Apocaps is central to her regimen still, and we use and have used many other recommendations from the book as well.
She has lived, and more importantly she has thrived, well beyond the statistical norm, and we credit the book and Apocaps for much of that success.
Dr. Dressler is honest and realistic about prognosis, and yet he offers hope and evidence-based advice, and the learned and professional integration of conventional and alternative approaches is something that we did not find anywhere else.”
- Bob Andersen, Broadway, Virginia
“Eighteen Months (and Counting) Without Spending $10,000!”
“The radiation oncologist that we saw after the tumor was removed suggested five weeks of radiation, for five days a week, all for the “small price” of $10,000!
They only did the treatments between 8am and noon, making it virtually impossible for anyone who holds a job, but you could leave your dog there for the day for an additional charge of $35per day!! I was beside myself, but I also just wanted it all to go away, so initially, I was willing to pay.
However, the more I thought about what that would be like for Yoda, I couldn’t bring myself to do that. I thought, if his days are indeed numbered, I don’t want to burn his little leg so that he can’t run and chase bunnies and squirrels and deer. It was about the quality of his life. I had to find an alternative, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
The radiation oncologist and his vet told me that if I didn’t have the treatment done, his tumor would grow back in three to six months.
Well it has been one year and six months and the growth hasn’t come back! Certainly, he is aging and isn’t as agile and playful as he was when he was a puppy, but his 10th birthday is April 30th and I couldn’t be more happy! Ever since I adopted him (three days prior to his first birthday!) he has had a steak for his birthday. This year I may make it a filet mignon!
THANK YOU for your book, because it gave me the support, strength and encouragement I needed to turn this entire situation from doom-and-gloom to complete possibility for something different.”
- Lori, Bethesda, Maryland
“Took Me by the Hand … and Became My Bible”
“I read The Dog Cancer Survival Guide fervently. It has become my “bible” in taking care of my dog. This book has helped not only my dog feel better, but me, too!!!
Any dog lover who is facing cancer in a beloved dog truly needs to read and devour the information in The Dog Cancer Survival Guide. This amazing book “took me by the hand” and has given me avenues that I never would have known about otherwise.
I cannot recommend this amazing book enough or sing it’s praises loud enough!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Dr. Dressler!!”
- Cynthia McKinnon, Sanford, Florida
“Helped Me Make Better Decisions: Worth Every Penny”
“This book was extremely helpful to me. Even if it had not helped extend Apollo’s life – which I am convinced it did as we were given maybe 6 months and we got 18 months – it explains things that you didn’t hear at your appointment or were too overwhelmed to absorb.
It helped me understand how canine cancer works and what to expect. This also prepared me for Apollo’s appointments because I was able to ask educated questions and feel that I was a part of his healthcare team and not just his advocate.
This book helped me make better decisions for Apollo so that we could preserve his quality of life for as long as possible. There are a lot of sad truths in this book that as a dog owner suffering from cancer, you don’t really want to read … but they are helpful.
This book was worth every penny and I would (and have) recommended it to anyone who has a dog diagnosed with cancer.”
– Sandy Miller, Palo, Iowa
“Even the Vet Thinks We Beat This”
“My dog is a beagle named Gordon. We rescued him in 2000; we don’t know how old he was at the time. In September of 2009 he suddenly got very sick. “Critically ill” my vet said. He ended up having a splenectomy. Lab results of the biopsy: hemangiosarcoma. Median life expectancy: 3-6 months.
I asked the vet every question I could hoping there was a sliver of hope. Could the lab results be wrong? Could the splenectomy have removed all the cancer cells? Has a dog ever beat it? Our family agreed we didn’t want to put him through any chemo or radiation.
Well, a few weeks later I had Dr. Dressler’s book in my hand and was following his Full Spectrum cancer care. I was cautiously optimistic. It’s been 18 months since his surgery and he’s doing great. The vet has even said that he “thinks we beat this.”
I’ve made some adjustments accordingly, but I still make Gordon’s food and use the supplements according to Dr. Dressler’s recommendation. I credit Dr. Dressler and his research and his book every bit as much as my vet and his surgery for saving Gordon’s life.”
– Kim Gau, Stow, Ohio
“When I heard the diagnosis that my dog had cancer I had no idea where to start, what to do. After taking some time to contemplate what was in front of us, I realized I needed more than just “medical” language, more than just a clinical approach. I needed a game plan for us and for our dog. I know her and love her and needed to make the right choices.
The bottom line for me was “no regrets”. I needed to make sure I understood the range of alternatives available, that I was making choices that were “right” given all the circumstances and that I would have peace whatever the outcome.
The Dog Cancer Survival Guide gave me a starting place, empowered me to ask questions, push for alternatives, challenge the status quo and change the landscape. Whatever happens now, there will be no regrets on my part.”
- Valerie Sachs, Pepper Pike, OH
“Nothing Is Sugar Coated”
“DO NOT GIVE UP! Read the book, cry, laugh, and love with your pet.
Use the book to formulate a realistic game plan in regards to attacking the disease to the best of your abilities. When you love a pet as evidently you do (given you found this book and Dr. D), you’ll find trying will make a world of difference to you and will reflect on your pet as well.
It was well worth the time, effort and money spent and I would pay tenfold for this information. Dr. Dressler presented everything in a REAL light. Nothing was sugar coated but at the same time the recommendations all had supporting information as to the “why” this can work, and how the research has come about.”
- Julian Trevino, Roseville, Michigan
“You Won’t Be Disappointed”
“Buy this book; you won’t be disappointed. It will help you prepare yourself for all the challenges that come along with your dog having cancer.
So many of the things he recommends seem so logical and are things you need to do to help yourself before you can help your dog. You find yourself saying “Wow, this makes so much sense” but yet it was something you hadn’t actually thought of yourself.”
– Christine Darg, Winnipeg, Manitoba
“Like Having a Second (or Third) Opinion”
“Having The Dog Cancer Survival Guide is truly like having a second opinion: in my case a third, along with my general practice vet and the canine oncologist overseeing Sparkle’s treatment. It was so reassuring to me to have good questions to ask, and to see that what my vets are recommending agree with Dr. Dressler.”
- Susan McKay, Winnipeg, Manitoba
“An Answer to Our Prayers”
“When we first found out that our ten year-old Labrador had cancer, we had a sonogram done of his entire body. It showed that the cancer, which had started in his anal gland, had spread to several of his lymph glands, some of which were grossly enlarged.
The vet, on seeing the sonogram results, told us our dog had 6 to 8 weeks to live. We immediately started using the strategies in Dr. Dressler’s book, including the high-protein, low-carb diet, the cancer-busting supplements, the immunity-strengthening methods, and the self-esteem building activities.
We first used alternated using Luteolin and EGCG, as well as Doxycycline, Modified Citrus Pectin, K-9 Immunity and Transfer Factor, Multivitamins, and Fish Oil. Then, when Apocaps came on the market, we used only Apocaps, along with the K-9 Immunity and Transfer Factor, Multivitamins, and Fish Oil.
We used all of Dr. Dressler’s immune boosting strategies, including having our dog in a completely dark room for nine hours of sleep each night. We gave our dog some type of exercise every day, whether it was a short walk, chasing a Frisbee in the yard, or playing ball in the house. We also played fetch and tug-of-war games with him. We also gave him hugs and plenty of petting every day. You could tell that he was happy…his tail was always wagging.
Our dog lived not only 8 weeks, but 18 MONTHS longer, largely, we believe, due to Dr. Dressler’s suggestions. He amazed every veterinarian we knew! We were so thankful to have the blessing of this extra time with him. In addition, his quality of life during all these extra months was very good. He was not constantly nauseous and fatigued, as he would have been if we had pursued chemotherapy. He was his normal, happy, energetic self.
And when we realized the end was finally near, Dr. Dressler’s advice on how to make the final decision and how to deal with the stress and sadness of losing our beloved friend really helped us.
I can’t tell you how thankful we are for this book! It was truly an answer to our prayers.”
– Heather G., San Antonio, Texas
“If She Didn’t Look at His Chart, She’d Never Know Buddy Was Sick”
“I was devastated when I learned Buddy’s cancer had returned. The same ache in my stomach, the tearing of my heart came back. He had seemed to recover nicely from the melanoma. I had great vets. His affected toe had been amputated. His previous x-rays were clear. How could this have happened again?
I immediately started searching the internet. The news was so grim that I felt nothing but despair. How could I watch my pet, my friend, suffer through this? I clicked on Dr. Dressler’s site and scanned the info on his book. I realized that I had to play an active role in Buddy’s” treatment.
I immediately ordered the book (e-mail copy.) I downloaded the 300+ pages as soon as i got home from school and began reading. While the news was still alarming I began to feel a little hope. Notes and read up on the research cited. I jotted down questions and was ready for my initial appointment with Buddy’s new oncologist. I listened, questioned, and re-hashed what the oncologist explained to me. I quizzed her about her background, research practices and philosophy of medicine. I was amazed she actually agreed about the medication (doxycycline) to give to Buddy.
I began Buddy on the Apocaps and massage therapy. We began daily walks and a dietary change from Beneful to an almost grain-free dog food. I spent more time telling him how grateful I was to him and much more time on my knees praying for a miracle. I began to “beef up” Buddy’s weight and chart his progress.I held my breath and expected the worse.
It hasn’t happened yet. Buddy’s blood count is great, his weight is up and his attitude is wonderful. While the doctor says is too soon to tell, she has suggested that he is getting better. She has actually said on more than one occasion that if she didn’t have Buddy’s chart in front of her she would never suspect he was at all sick. I keep waiting for the miracle of Buddy being healed. In the meantime, I know there are options to sitting back and letting the worse happen.
I am more optimistic and grateful for Dr. Dressler’s book. It has brought me closer to God, given me hope for the future, peace of mind, and avenues to follow to help Buddy and the rest of my family cope with this “trying” situation.”
- Debbie Granger, Chesterfield, Missouri
“Grateful for Real Information Backed by Real Research”
“We were very grateful to find such a resource as this book. There is so much misinformation on the net and so many self-proclaimed or new age experts today, it was a blessing to find real information backed by real research. Thank you!”
- Steven McAfee, Fort Wayne, Indiana
“My Husband – The Vet – Didn’t Know How To Deal, Either”
“When LP was first diagnosed, we were distraught and felt completely hopeless. My husband is an equine vet – yet he couldn’t deal with such devastating news any better than I did. We were emotional disasters.
When I read Dr. Dressler’s book, I realized that everyone goes through the exact same things we were. We need to be strong for our dogs, we need to be focused. We don’t know where this journey will take us but we are now on a steady course. LP is a happy guy, he’s doing well right now and we’re taking one day at a time. I am sure this has helped LP.”
– Susie, Millwood, Virginia
“Human in a Dog Suit”
“Angus is a nine year-old Golden Doodle. He’s the best dog we have ever had. We’ve always said he’s like a human in a dog suit. He’s always been there for us, always attentive, always ready to put his head on your lap, always ready to give love. Plus, he was fast. He looked like a thoroughbred when he ran.
In June of 2010, my wife, Barb, was down at our house on the beach helping our daughter start up a restaurant and noticed him limping and staying off his rear leg. She drove him down to our “beach vet” to be checked and was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. He was one of the favorites at the vet’s office and all of the “girls” who worked there were bawling along with my wife. When Barb got him back to the house, she called me and told me to sit down and laid it out — the vet had said that, without treatment, Angus’ prognosis was 6 -8 weeks as this was an extremely aggressive and lethal cancer.
We must have cried on the phone for two hours. At the time, it was one of the most gut-wrenching things we had been through. It paled, however, compared to the death of our son, Dave, 5-months later (for which there is no comparison).
Barb’s someone that springs to action. She got on the phone and made an appointment with a leading veterinary oncologist in the Raleigh area (where we live), wrapped up a bunch of restaurant-related details, found Dr. Dresser’s book on the internet and sent me the link, packed up her truck and got him back for a consultation. After consultation with the specialist, we signed up for amputation and a 4-week course of carboplatin, hearing that it could extend his life by 6 months and, maybe if we were lucky, a year. I printed out Dr. Dresser’s book, put it in a 3-ring binder, and started reading.
I had always been big into supplements, so was drawn to the chapters on alternative therapies. I probably read those chapters about 10 times before it started sinking in and we started off adding just a couple supplements to his meals and giving him purified water instead of tap water.
Angus went in for amputation surgery on July 1, 2010 and we spent a long 4th of July weekend lying on the floor with him to reassure him and keep him from chewing his stiches out. Obviously, the wound was pretty gross. Like all good dogs, he kept licking our faces after we had just brought him in to have a leg chopped off.
Cancer mechanisms and alternative treatments became our new obsession; I spent hours researching after work every night, reading Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Russell Blaylock, internet blog after internet blog, and as many clinical studies and papers I could find on medicinal mushrooms and artemisinin. Surprisingly, I found Suzanne Somers’ book Knockout to be superb.
The more research we did, the more we fine-tuned Angus’ regimen. I’m now a big believer in the theory of dogs self-medicating. We’ve never had to force pills down Angus’ throat. He either eats them with his dinner or out of our hand…I persuade myself that he does this because he senses it will help cure his cancer.
It’s now 10 months since Angus was diagnosed. He has had to survive the stress of our grieving the loss of our son. And the stress of that event on him — he knows…But, we have doubled our efforts to support Angus in dealing with his cancer. We aren’t willing to lose two of our “boys” in the same year. Angus has been back to the oncologist twice for scans to see whether the cancer has spread (most dogs with osteosarcoma die when it spreads to their lungs). On both earlier visits, nothing showed on the scans and his blood counts were phenomenally good.
He’s still bright eyed and has a good appetite. We want to get him another summer at the beach. He’s a great dog, a great friend. He deserves it.”
