Hi. Our dog was just diagnosed with cancer, so I am looking for any books about dog/pet cancer. So, please let me know if you have any or will be posting any. I don't need a deal, I have some credits saved up. Thanks.

Hi Sue. So sorry to hear about your golden, it is such a tough time to go through. My golden/lab mix is 8 and has bone cancer, osteosarcoma. It came up really fast.

Oh dear, I just had to read your post.  Two weeks ago I lost my 12 year old cocker spaniel to a nasal tumor. 

So sorry to hear about your dog...  I didn't have any books about canine cancer though.  If your dog has trouble eating, you might want to try out Solid Gold dog food; it was the only thing I could get our boy Dutch to eat during his treatment and re-occurance.
