There’s so much to learn about holistic care for cats and dogs with cancer. The way to begin is to contact a holistic veterinarian who can guide you through treatment. Dr. Judy Morgan is one such vet, and in this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio we discuss all the ways that holistic care can benefit your dog or cat while fighting cancer and other immune diseases.

August 3rd, 2015 · No Comments · Pet Cancer

Oncology for pet cancer doesn’t have to be scary. Catch these two helpful Tripawd Talk Radio shows about cancer care, treatment and even how to laugh while fighting it!

Veterinary Oncology 101 for New Tripawd Parents



In this episode, Dr. Steve Shaw, DVM, DACVIM (Oncology) of Northern California’s Sage Centers for Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Care helps us cover the basics of veterinary oncology for pets with cancer. We’ll take away the mysteries surrounding oncology treatment and discuss important things like:

  • How do vet oncologists decide on chemotherapy treatments for their patients?
  • What if I have different chemotherapy treatments to choose from? How do I decide which one to use?
  • Does chemo hurt? Will my pet get sick? What happens if she/he does? Is there anything I can do to avoid that?
  • Is there any way to cut the costs of chemo?
  • Are there any foods or supplements to avoid during chemo? If so, why?
  • What’s your take on holistic alternatives to chemotherapy?
  • What is the one thing that you wish pet parents would understand about chemo?”


Live and Laugh through Cancer with Dr. Sarah Boston

Lucky Dog Sarah Boston, DVM, DVSc, DACVS

Read “Lucky Dog” by Vet Oncologist Sarah Boston

As the talented author of one of our all-time favorite books “Lucky Dog: How Being a Veterinarian Saved My Life” Dr. Boston is a brainy, lovely and witty oncologist who shares her bumpy ride through the human oncology medical system when she diagnosed her own case of thyroid cancer.

Each day Dr. Boston is helping our pets fight cancer as Associate Professor of Surgical Oncology in the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences at the University of Florida Gainesville. Her area of clinical interest is in surgical oncology and  research interests include: osteosarcoma, hemangiosarcoma, thyroid carcinoma and soft tissue sarcomas in dogs.

On this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio we’re thrilled to ask Dr. Boston about her experience as both a cancer patient and clinician, and how it has touched her daily experience working with patients.

Of course we’ll also discuss the University’s advances in the field of surgical oncology as they relate to limb cancers often encountered by Tripawds members, such as hemangiosarcoma, soft tissues sarcomas and more.

Free Videos Teach Easy, Affordable Holistic Pet Food Recipes

July 27th, 2015 · 1 Comment · Pet Health

Last week we told you about Dr. Judy Morgan, DVM, and her popular book “From Needles to Natural.” Today Dr. Morgan will show you how easy it is to create a holistic diet and lifestyle for your dogs. In her home cooking dog food book “What’s For Dinner, Dexter?: Cooking For Your Dog Using Chinese Medicine Theory” and free video series, you’ll learn how to use holistic Chinese Medicine theory to keep your pet healthy using fresh, wholesome food ingredients.

People are recognizing the importance of a balanced diet and avoiding preserved, synthetic, processed and pesticide ridden foods. We check the labels of food we eat and count calories, grams of proteins, carbohydrates and other nutritional facts but completely ignore it when it comes to our pet’s food.

Basically, our pets are just like us. If you spend a lifetime eating garbage, it’s going to eventually catch up with you. It’s easy to spot your own trouble areas but it can be harder to recognize what is unhealthy for your pet. My goal is to help educate all pet owners on how to formulate the healthiest possible diets for their animals. So let’s get started! — Dr. Judy Morgan, DVM

In Dr. Morgan’s helpful free webinar series “Home Cooking for Pets,” she brings “What’s For Dinner, Dexter?” to life with pet food nutrition basics, home cooking videos and health tips. Here’s a few helpful videos to get started. For more free pet home cooking information, visit the “Home Cooking for Pets” area of her website.

Healing Habitat Helps Us Deeply Connect with Our Pets

We met Alicia while attending the Blog Paws conference. Before we knew that she’s a certified clairvoyant healer for animals and people, we witnessed how her calm and soothing demeanor put Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray at ease in the chaotic environment. Clearly, she has a gift that heals.

As a certified clairvoyant healer I bring neutrality, clarity, compassion and even joy to any situation you are experiencing with your pet. Helping you deepen your relationship with your animal companion allowing both of you to shine.

Avoid Spills, Trim Your Tripawd’s Fur Between Toes

July 2nd, 2015 · 2 Comments · Pet Health

Putting dog boots on your Tripawd is a nice option but it’s not always practical. One of the best ways to help your Tripawd dog or cat avoid falling on slippery floors is to clip the fur between their toes.

Shaving pads and trimming your dog’s feet allows their paw pads to grip floors much better. But figuring it out how to do it is tough. We tried using scissors on Wyatt Ray’s feet once but that was tricky and dangerous. Here’s a better way to trim foot fur:

When it comes to safety, shaving a Tripawd’s feet and paw pads are all it takes for extra peace of mind on slippery floors. Here’s one highly-rated pet groomer to get you started. Give this a try and let us know how it worked.
