This week the pet blogger challenge group looks at our favorite books, movies, and TV shows. I am not a huge TV or movie person, but I am a reader. So here are a few of my favorite pet books (these are affiliate links). Because of Ty’ s cancer, a number of these are cancer related:
This is a tear jerker! But it is a wonderful book on lessons in dealing with a pet’s terminal illness and anticipatory grief. The Amazon reviews of it say it all. This is a must read book for anyone whose pet has or had cancer or really for anyone at all who has a pet.
I read this book when Ty was first diagnosed with Lymphoma. It is one dog’s success story and a good read for those who need hope. Sparky tried some unusual treatments aside from the standard chemo protocol, and I was not totally comfortable doing some of them, so please of course always discuss alternative treatments with your vet and oncologist.
This is a really good resource for trick training. There are plenty of easy to teach tricks and they are laid out in a easy to follow manner. Go have some fun with your dog!
This is my most often recommend resource for anyone whose dog has cancer. This guide covers it all: each type of cancer, chemo and radiation, diet, supplements, alternative treatments, grief management, etc. It is a must have for anyone dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
Instead of the the movie, read the book! Another tear jerker, but a wonderful story about the effect a dog can have on a person’s life.
If you have a corgi, you will love this book. It is a delightful story with wonderful corgi illustrations.
I was just recently sent a signed copy of this book from the author, who also runs the Magic Bullet Fund, which helps dog owners with medical bills related to cancer. It is another very good resource, covering all aspects of dealing with canine cancer.
