Sharon’s done a lot for her dog with hemangiosarcoma. Now he is gagging. Is this the end? Dr. Trina Hazzah, integrative oncologist, makes her best recommendation.
Sharon calls in to our Listener Line with a question. Her corgi’s getting closer to the prognosis timeframe the surgeon predicted. Now he’s gagging a few times a day.
Is this the cancer coming back, or invading his lungs? If he’s not eligible for more surgery, what can she do at home?
Dr. Trina Hazzah, integrative oncologist, helps Sharon understand what could be going on with her boy. She makes a couple of very specific recommendations that Sharon can try right away to relieve symptoms.
She also makes a referral to a veterinarian in Sharon’s area who might just be able to help.
