Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A hilarious and heartwarming memoir about a veterinary oncologist whose own cancer treatment showed her that the ways we treat our pets can teach us a lot about ourselves and our own health.
Paperback -'What a remarkable book-both howlingly funny and deeply moving. This veterinary oncologist's story of looking after dogs and other animals, and looking after herself after her own cancer diagnosis, taught me volumes about illness, healthcare and love.
A veterinary surgical oncologist who identified her own cancer shares her experience undergoing treatment in the Canadian health care system while weaving in stories about dogs she has treated for cancer along the way.
