consumed for food. Having lost 4 animal companions to cancer, Deborah

prevention and treatment of cancer in pets. Her book Why Is Cancer Killing
Our Pets? is a thorough and comprehensive guide to every aspect of the
disease in animals and is a result of her search for answers.

culprits that may cause cancer in pets and they will learn preventive
measures that can be taken to safeguard their well-being.

Concerns, Vaccinations, Nutrition, The Role of Emotions, Conventional
Treatments, Alternative Therapies, Herbs, Vitamins, Homeopathy and Naturopathy.
