Our little friends, furry and otherwise, very quickly elevate to the position of the family. And like all family members, we want to ensure that they receive the best treatment possible when it comes to devastating diseases like cancer. As healthcare continues to move away from the disease-focused model and towards patient-centered care, it’s imperative that we do the same for our animals by introducing holistic pet oncology.
Conventional cancer treatments wreak havoc on biological systems. Chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can drastically reduce your pet’s quality of life. Thankfully, adjuvant holistic pet oncology treatments can help nourish your pet and improve their immune system to help them better handle the more aggressive cancer treatments. Dr. Kendra Pope has extensive experience in this domain and can help ensure that the most critical component of this integrative oncology — pet-specific nutrition — is maintained throughout the process.
Dr. Kendra’s professional integrative oncology approach is built on the foundation of her deep clinical experience, proven food therapy practices, and her transparent, compassionate communication with pet owners.
