How Type C for Comfort Treats Dog Cancer | Molly Jacobson Deep Dive

Type C dog lovers put Comfort first. You probably do not tolerate side effects and want to keep your dog as comfortable and pain-free as possible.


When your dog is diagnosed with cancer, you have lots of information to process and lots of decisions to make. What is the prognosis? Can the tumor be removed with surgery? Will chemotherapy or radiation help to extend your dog’s life, and are they worth the cost, both financially, physically and emotionally? And how are you going to pay for this?

According to Dr. Demian Dressler’s Dog Cancer Coping Guide, dog lovers tend to fall into three personality categories when addressing these concerns and making treatment decisions:

  • A for Action
  • B for Balance
  • C for Comfort

As a Type C owner, you put comfort first. You are more likely to decline specific treatment options if you are concerned about your dog being in pain or experiencing side effects and will focus on treatment options that relieve symptoms and keep your dog happy. You’re the most likely to immerse yourself in diet changes to help your pooch, and will likely add supplements to help target your dog’s symptoms and maybe fight the cancer.

Molly Jacobson, editor of The Dog Cancer Survival Guide, joins us to help Type C folks get comfortable with their treatment plan.
