On "The Pet Cancer Vet" Tracie and Dr. Sue take per-arranged calls from pet owners with a dog or cat" with cancer, in order to give them and other listeners information, support and hope.
Dr. Sue’s philosophy is that cancer is a treatable disease and her motto is “Live longer, live well.” Sue supports an integrative approach to radiation, chemotherapy and surgery with the addition of supplements and nutritional support. Also known as Dr Sue Cancer Vet, Dr. Sue is the co-author of the Second Edition of The Dog Cancer Survival Guide, which is a best-selling book in small animal health for the last several years.

Let Dr. Sue Share Her Knowledge More
I follow this podcast to educate myself on current cancer related vet news. Dr. Sue is amazing but the other co-host, Tracie dominates the conversation, which diminishes the value of the podcast since Tracie uses anecdotal evidence and makes many assumptions (rather than research based evidence). It sounds like she’s yelling into the mic and interrupts Dr. Sue often. While I love hearing stories, I feel like Tracie makes this podcast less of a learning experience and more of me listening to waiting room gossip. I’d like to hear Dr. Sue talk more and share studies that she has done/heard about.
