Support
How can I support my dog?

The treatment of cancer goes further than the treatment of the tumor itself and the possibly associated discomfort.

As in man, every dog deals with this situation in a different way. Your dog may (temporarily) want to eat less, need extra attention or on the contrary more rest. Depending on the situation (e.g. after and intervention or during a treatment course) your dog may need your help to move about and keep clean.

In this section you will be able to find:

  • information on adapting the nutrition,
  • environment
  • and social support.
