8 Resources Every Dog Owner Should Know About

with Dr. Lori Cesario

Welcome back to Your Dog Wants You To Know This!


I know how important it is to you to be prepared with the best tools for your pets, so today I am equipping you with some of the resources that I believe will help you with that.


This episode is going to be a little bit different than usual because I am sharing eight different resources that I think you should know about as a dog owner!


Some of these will be helpful if you have a healthy pet without any diseases or conditions, and some of them will be helpful if your pet has been diagnosed with a disease or condition. 


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Where you can go to find the latest treatments and research on a specific disease 
  • How to find out what conditions a specific breed might be prone to 
  • Learning more about herb/drug interactions 
  • How to find a specialist in your area 
  • Resources on how to deal with a difficult diagnosis 
  • Where to get information about hospice and palliative care 
  • Finding support after losing a pet
  • Where to learn more about cancer 


I highly recommend looking through some of those resources when you get a chance! If you’re looking for something specific, I hope this helps you find the information that you need.
