Every Monday at 7 pm Eastern The Pet Cancer Vet radio show discusses every subject related to diagnosing and treating cancer, from nutrition to new technologies that keep cancer away.
Visit the Radio Pet Lady website to tune in live or catch the podcasts with host Tracy and Dr. Sue. You’ll also find a list of other lively animal-themed shows.
Here’s a brief list of previous shows with Dr. Ettinger:
The Pet Cancer Vet (10-14-2013) #2010 Dr Sue helps Kim in Spotsylvania VA from GreyhoundsRock.org (that is highlighting November as national Canine Cancer Awareness month) with a cancer diet and the “low carb question.”
The Pet Cancer Vet (9-16-2013) #2006 Introducing holistic acupuncture veterinarian Dr. Patrick Mahaney (one of Tracie’s two new co-hosts on CAT CHAT® & DOG TALK®) to Dr. Sue, who embraces holistic care and supplements to accompany her work as an oncologist. Dr. Patrick talks about the supplements and acupuncture therapies he recommends for his cancer patients getting care at the Veterinary Cancer Center in Los Angeles (they both agree about Nordic Naturals omega-3 oil as an anti-inflammatory for healing and regaining health!).
The Pet Cancer Vet (9-2-2013) #2004 Dr. Sue shares her frustration that people have the misconception that a cancer specialist costs more than a person’s own vet. She wishes primary care veterinarians would recommend that their patients with cancer see an oncologist, whose specialized training and timely knowledge really do offer more choices — and can even be less costly.
What are Nutraceuticals? (7-01-2013) From natural supplements that have anti-cancer effects to an intriguing discussion about the science behind Dr. Dressler’s Apocaps therapy. Dr. Sue also discusses how she helps clients implement a full spectrum approach to treating and living with cancer.
Treating and Coping with Cancer (6-03-2013) Join Dr. Sue for a general discussion about treating mast cell cancer with the drug Palladia. She also explains palliative radiation and discusses why it’s important to remember that cancer statistics matter, but they can’t always predict the outcome of cancer in animals.
Living in the Now (5-27-2013) In this discussion about living with cancer, Dr. Sue emphasizes how our animals still live each day to the fullest despite fighting cancer, and shares her thoughts about keeping realistic but hopeful expectations for cancer treatment. You’ll learn the difference between the word “cure” and “stable disease,” and also get an overview of a remarkable chemo drug developed just for dogs called Palladia.
Meet Dr. Sue Ettinger (5-20-2013) In Dr. Sue’s first show she discusses nasal cancer and treating it with the latest technology of cyber knife radiation. She also shares her thoughts about compounded medications and her own challenges with “pilling” her pets.
