    Lucky Dog Author Interview with Dr. Sarah Boston

    in Pets

    On Sunday May 3 at 6pm Eastern Tripawd Talk Radio is excited to welcome Dr. Sarah Boston, DVM, DVSc, DACVS.


    As the talented author of one of our all-time favorite books "Lucky Dog: How Being a Veterinarian Saved My Life" Dr. Boston is a brainy, lovely and witty oncologist who shares her bumpy ride through the human oncology medical system when she diagnosed her own case of thyroid cancer.


    Each day Dr. Boston is helping our pets fight cancer as Associate Professor of Surgical Oncology in the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences at the University of Florida Gainesville. Her area of clinical interest is in surgical oncology and  research interests include: osteosarcoma, hemangiosarcoma, thyroid carcinoma and soft tissue sarcomas in dogs.


    On this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio we're thrilled to ask Dr. Boston about her experience as both a cancer patient and clinician, and how it has touched her daily experience working with patients.


    Of course we'll also discuss the University's advances in the field of surgical oncology as they relate to limb cancers often encountered by Tripawds members, such as hemangiosarcoma, soft tissues sarcomas and more.
