"I look forward to sharing cutting edge life-saving pet cancer treatments and other pet health topics with PetsPage.com members and the media around the globe. Advances in veterinary medicine have made great strides in recent years, especially as it relates to treating pets with cancer. There are so many myths and misconceptions about cancer in pets. My passion is to educate pet owners that cancer is often treatable, and treatment is often well-tolerated. As a boarded oncologist, my goal is to make sure treatment is never worse than the disease, and we discuss the variety of options available. My mission is to raise cancer awareness, promote early detection, and help pets with cancer live longer, and live well! I am excited to share this information with such a creative website and gathering place for pet lovers and other pet and veterinary professionals around the world,” said Dr. Sue.
