Are you aware that your pet's cancer can be treated holistically? When it comes down to it, the holistic approach involves taking into account whole-body function and not just focusing on killing cancer cells and can improve a pet's clinical response to treatment.
Generally, the holistic approach involves providing medications, supplements, herbs, whole-food diet, and other modalities (acupuncture, etc.) to help minimize the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. I had the opportunity to share Cardiff's cancer story including the integration of chemotherapy and other treatments on the ABC 7 WJLA program The Pet Show with Dr. Katy.
