Introducing my new book Heal on the Vital Role of Dogs in Cancer Research

Arlene and MollyI am happy to announce that my second book is slated to be published in 2015 by ECW Press. It’s called Heal: The Vital Role of Dogs in the Search for Cancer Cures and it’s about the growing field of comparative oncology. This book offers an inside look at dogs in cancer research and the many innovative studies meant to help both dogs and people with the disease.

Did you know dogs and people get many of the same types of cancer, including lymphoma, melanoma, osteosarcoma, and breast cancer? Well, they do, and the veterinarians and oncologists in comparative oncology are doing important work that’s resulting in new treatments for both man and man’s best friend.

I also write about emerging research proving the remarkable ability of dogs to sniff cancer, and how everything scientists are learning about the dog’s nose may someday become the basis of new devices that can detect cancer early, when it may still be possible to cure it.
