Early Dog Cancer Prevention and Vaccine Trials | Dr. Demian Dressler Q&A

Should I enroll my dog in the Vaccination Against Canine Cancer Study (VACCS)? What else can I do to prevent my dog from getting cancer? Dr. Dressler explores these questions in this Q&A show.


We all love the idea of a cancer vaccine, even when it’s way too early to start celebrating. Dr. Demian Dressler discusses the hopes, fears, and realistic expectations of the VACCS dog cancer vaccine study. He also addresses other cancer preventative measures, including supplements and diet.

Dr. Dressler is the author of today’s presenting podcast sponsor,  The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity.
