Have you heard terms like “integrative,” “alternative,” or “holistic” medicine and wondered what they actually mean?   Today we’re joined by Dr. Kendra Pope, an integrative oncologist who can tell us all about it.    There are only a few people in the whole world who have the training Kendra has. She’s a board-certified veterinary oncologist, but she's also certified in veterinary acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, veterinary food therapy, and Tui-na.    I wanted to get her on the podcast because I know that there’s a huge interest in integrative medicine right now. Some people also call this holistic or alternative medicine, so Kendra will explain the differences in this episode.    We’re lucky enough to have her on the podcast for the next two episodes to really explain in detail how these treatments work, the thought process behind establishing a successful protocol, as well as the goals of treatment. We’re talking about this for cancer patients and other chronic diseases.    In today’s episode, Kendra discusses how nutrition plays a role in her treatment, misconceptions that are really important to be aware of, as well as how she ensures that the herbs and supplements that she prescribes are as safe as possible.   If you want to learn more about how we can treat cancer beyond just surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, make sure to tune in!     Show notes available at www.caninecanceracademy.com/podcast-ep-19   Don’t forget to say hello on Instagram @thecaninecaneracademy and on Facebook Canine Cancer Academy

Hidden Signs of Allergies (& How To Treat Them) with Vet Dermatologist, Dr Jennifer Schissler
Did you know that allergies are actually pretty common in dogs?   Today's episode is all about dermatology, specifically allergies, which can have a huge impact on a dog's quality of life.    Allergies are incredibly common in dogs, but many owners don't realize that their dogs have them.
