When I wrote Help Your Dog Fight Cancer, I hoped it would reach everyone trying to
help their dog fight cancer

I love that Bullet’s book is helping so many people and dogs their fight cancer. I hate that there is such a tremendous demand for that help.In the 2nd Edition, released summer of 2008, I updated medical information and added a final chapter to discuss palliative care, euthanasia and grief.


The tens of thousands of copies sold are an indication of the overwhelming statistics. Canine cancer is affecting millions of dogs at this moment.I am haunted by thoughts of all of the people who have dogs with cancer but who cannot afford treatment. After completing the first
printing of Help Your Dog Fight Cancer, I founded the Magic Bullet Fund to help these people and their dogs. My donations from book proceeds were the first influx to the fund and they continue although now they are dwarfed by the generous donations of
so many others. 

By the second printing of this book in 2005, Bullet had left me, taken by old age, still cancer free. On the first anniversary of his departure, the Magic Bullet Fund began to accept dogs into the program to help them through treatment. The fund provides financial assistance. I offer the families guidance in all medical decisions, diet and supplement, general home care andemotional support.

Magic Bullet Fund

At best: The fund gives dogs a chance to beat cancer.

At least: The fund allows owners to say “I did everything I could t help my dog beat cancer.” And allows owners time to create more precious memories and have a long
goodbye with their beloved friend.

Laurie Kaplan is the
author of “Help Your Dog Fight Cancer.” This book has helped thousands of dogs and caretakers in their fight against cancer. See
