you so much
for everything you have done for me and Angel. Without you and your
book, I do not know what I would have done. My
favorite part of the book and most helpful for me is Chapter 6, Side
Effects. Without this section I would probably blow up the vet's phone
24/7, but now, your book has helped me understand so much about Canine
Cancer. I catch myself picking it up all the time and rereading
sections just because I find them so interesting. The entire book is
FANTASTIC. Thank you so much.

through in your book and his legacy lives on in your unique writing.
Until I got
your book, I really didn't know if I was going to make it. It was as if
you were watching over me
writing the book as I was going on with my struggles - knowing what was
making me feel terrible, and knowing what every one of my worries would
be. Until I read your book I felt so alone - your book made me feel
that everything I was feeling was normal. Thanks to you, I got to see
my 5 year old cancer dog be a puppy again!
I want you to know that you've made a
difference in my life and of course Manta's. I really can't imagine
where we would have been without your help and the hope that you
provided for us.

Nancy [reader's friend],
you gave me Laurie Kaplan's book, "Help Your Dog Fight
Cancer," I was still trying to deal with Kerrie's diagnosis. Now,
almost four weeks have passed since I said good-bye
beloved friend... I
read Laurie's book cover to cover and it became the foundational tool
that I used to move
Kerrie. I... put Kerrie on a
natural diet much like the one that Laurie outlines in her book as
Diet, and supplements to fight cancer growth and
survived 5 months and 1
diagnosis. This was high-quality time because
I took Laurie's book to heart and took advantage of every suggestion
she made that was pertinent to Kerrie's diagnosis... I
hope that you will send this
to Laurie, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude. She has done a great
more people than she will ever know. Of this I am completely certain.
very warmest regards and my deepest gratitude,
godsend - thank you for sharing Bullet's story and your experiences
with all of us cancer-dog parents. I've never agonized over any
decision in my life the way I did about whether or not to try chemo!
You have used your
difficult experience in a way that helps so many dogs and their people!
Thank you so much.

Your book is fabulous. I would

wonderful story in there of the love & care you gave Bullet. You

glad you shared it.
had intended to try chemo with Toosox
(primarily because of your book!) her reaction to the
prednisone really turned us against any treatment. She always was very
sensitive to any drugs. We felt that ultimately the chemo
would be too much for her. Your information gave us the knowledge to
make the decisions we had to make. Even though I did lose Toosox, your
book gave me the courage to try to save her. Kim

understood by everyone. The author writes with compassion and
understanding for those people who have dogs with cancer. Laurie Kaplan
has written a book that gives readers a sense of hope that there is
something that they can do to help to make their dogs live longer with
a good quality of life. I recommend this book to anyone who has a
dog with cancer.
year old Beagle was diagnosed with lymphoma. His name is Peanut and he
is a huge part of our family. I do not consider him a dog. He is my
"furry son." I bought the book "Help Your Dog Fight Cancer" from
Amazon.com. This is the most precious book in my life right now
and I can say that it is priceless. I wish I would have had the
knowledge I have now. I love the book and will keep it for as long as i

story and writing the book for other people to benefit from. We were
devastated 9 months ago when we found out that Jake, our
6-year-old Golden Ret., had lymphoma. I ordered your book right away
and started reading and educating
myself. Your book brought much help and comfort to our situation. I
made Jake's food based on your recipe and was always referring
back to it for information on possible side effects and so on. It was a
huge help to us.
sad to say that Jake
passed away last week, one week after his 7th birthday, of kidney
failure due to a high calcium level. He was an incredibly special dog
that will always be in our hearts. I truly give God all the honor and
glory for each day that he was in our lives, but I also want to thank
you for your book and for your dedication.

we found out our Bogart had cancer. It is full
of information and gives you hope. And when you learn your dog has
cancer that is the first thing you need to cling to because without it,
your dog is lost. This book was our cancer Bible during Bogart's fight
and we returned to it often to help us get to the next day. Bogart is
gone now, gone over the Rainbow Bridge, beaten by the awful cancer but
if your beloved pooch has cancer I urge you to get this book. It was
the most helpful of the numerous we purchased when we got the
just wanted you
to know that your book
helped me immensely when I first learned of my dog Molly’s
cancer. Even though you dealt with a different kind of cancer
than me, your book helped me come to grips with my feelings of
guilt and dismay. Everything that I had been feeling – you
addressed. Molly’s has had radiation and is currently on the vaccine
from the Univ of Wisconsin. Her prognosis is not good but she is
fighting the good fight. As long as her quality of life is good –
she will be with me. Not one
at any vet has answered my questions like your book did. Thank you!

how very much your and Bully's story meant to me. During
Scrunch's battle with
purchased your book. It truly gave me hope and comfort. I carried that
with me to and from work. Though I was not doing chemo with Scrunch, it
was a comfort to know I had a "tool" of sorts and helped me activly
participate in her treatment when I couldn't be with her.
had the attitude of "Yeah...right...make me," and I had to chuckle when
you wrote about the one and only time Bully came to you when you called
him at the shelter. Still makes me chuckle! I want
to you to know how much your book helped me and
most precious help when you
most need it, This is a "must have" for all dog owners!
found out about Laurie's personal fight and her book on the
internet. I was desperate looking for information to help my boy
friend's daughter, Sara, and her GSD, Alf, diagnosed Lymphoma
at 8 years old. There is lot of information on the net, but
desperately need accurate information, there is none.
Alf is gone,
now at Rainbow Bridge. The Lymphoma was very aggressive and
I live in a country were chemotherapy for animals is a laugh... even
so, I read the book and strongly recommend it to
all the persons who are trying to give their dogs a chance.
the most precious thing you'll have to help your dog... The book is
easy read, full of examples, gives you information about
several treatments and ways to approach the disease, so that you may
decide what is best for your dog; and best of all, it teaches you how
to make life easier for your pet and how to help him fighting
cancer. To all of you and your dogs, I wish all the best!
