nice about Laurie’s book is that she tells you what she did to
help Bullet, but also tells you what other options are out there, the
drugs commonly used, and options for nutritional supplements. She
provides an incredible list of references

several years in remission and died of other causes at the age of 14.

|A Compassionate and Informative
The grim diagnosis of cancer for a beloved pet is shocking and
devastating. When my Siberian Husky was diagnosed with an aggressive
cancer, I spent the following three days on the Internet researching
the specific type of cancer, treatment options, oncologists, diets,
supplements and anything else that might help fight her prognosis. I
had more questions than answers. I first saw Laurie's book at my
oncologist's office. It confirmed my own research, but also offered a
wealth of additional information. It is a compassionate and supportive
book that offers hope and help. The topics are comprehensive and
insightful and are meant to help you and your beloved companion combat
a frightening disease. Laurie and Bullet's story is truly
inspirational. She has great compassion for our four-legged best
friends and for the people who love them. The book is truly a
|Who says there's no Magic
pooch was first diagnosed with lymphoma, I vainly searched
local bookstores and the internet for a personal story of success at
fighting canine cancer that combined traditional western veterinary
medicine with non-traditional approaches. Most resources were either
strongly in one or the other camp, with little discussion of how to
blend a variety of approaches. Laurie's book was different, and a
savior for us, as it carefully and non-judgementally presented options
for integrating nutritional, herbal, homeopathic, and traditional
approaches (like radiation, chemotherapy and surgery). Along the way
she charms us with her and her Bullet's very personal and brave story.
The combination of science, heart, humor, first-hand experience,
straightforward information and cutting-edge references will be useful
to anyone confronting this disease, and is an absolute must-have for
companions of cancer pups.
