I have a beloved female silver tabby between 11-14 years old, who has been diagnosed with lymphoma, pancreatitis, swollen liver and jaundice.
It started 1st week of October when she stopped eating and it was thought to be a bad tooth but the blood tests taken before the scheduled tooth removal showed liver enzymes way off scale and further blood tests showed white blood cell count at 40,000 with abnormal blast cells present.
Liver biopsy done last Wednesday confirmed lymphoma. She was put on steroids from 23rd Oct. It was decided not to go the chemo route.
I have been throwing everything at this from turmeric, IP-6 & Inositol, colloidal silver, flaxseed oil & cottage cheese (Budwig), krill oil, milk thistle, dandelion root extract, vitamin c with honey, ACV and even CBD oil twice a day from last Saturday.
She perked up and ate well for 5 days from Wed to Sunday last week but from this Monday, she has lost her appetite completely again and has no interest in food.
I have been resorting to syringe feeding her diluted Hills A/D 3 times a day.
I just received a 15g packet of Essiac tea powder yesterday but haven't made it up yet as the instructions say to sterilise all utensils and equipment first.
Today she has been so lethargic and looks washed out completely. She doesn't come down at all for food and I have to carry her down to be syringe fed. She just lies with her head down.
I'm not sure if the small amount of CBD oil I'm giving her twice a day with some coconut oil is making her really drowsy but that should not make her appetite non-existant.
Any thoughts and advice welcome.

I need some help. I have two older (10 years old) female Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. One of them has some larger growth (around 1 1/4" in diametr) on her mammary glands and the other girl has a small one - probably like a pea. Our vet is suggesting surgery on both to remove those tumors and get a biopsy. I am scared. After reading several posts about this problem, I think, I would prefer to try something by natural way first. I want to measure the exact size of each and monitor the progress...
I have them on dehydrated raw meat called CaniSource. Beside that they are getting lots of vitamins and supplements (Nupro, Glucosamine HCL, probiotics, pinch of Turmeric, Alfalfa and Kelp meal). Yesterday I started them on Milk Thistle (5 drops 2x a day, Turkey Tail (1/3 of capsule 2x a day), Flor.Essence tea (1tsp. 3x a day) and crushed Bitter Apricot Kernels (1/2 2x a day). I am not sure if I should still give them something else. Can anybody help?

I have an 18 year old jack russel that was diagnosed with cancer in November 2011. She was very weak and little appetite with at least 5 visible tumors, the vet said the only option was to put her down. Sooner rather than later.
I visited a chinese herbalist who recommended I feed her milk thistle, reishi mushroom and a herbal tea high in antioxidants (rooibos), I started giving her 5 drops of reishi liquid extract and 100ml of strongly brewed rooibos tea along with the milk thistle.
I can't put into words but the results were simply miraculous. Her tumours shrank and her appetite increased tenfold. After three weeks there was no visible tumours, the vet couldn't believe it when the MRI scan came back clear. Just wanted to share my story and hopefully you can add this to the pet cancer section.

I just wanted to inform you of an excellent website, that is very up to date on alternative cancer medicine for dogs. The vet, Dr. Eisen, has a Kindle book for $9.99, on Amazon, which, once you purchase, leads you to his blog, where he can help you with questions. What was so great about his site, is that he sources every product he recommends, you can buy the best liquid zeolite, Flax oil, AveMar, AHCC, Beta Glucan, directly from his website, etc etc instead of searching for hours on the internet. He doesnt sell it himself, he links to the product. He also recommends the parasite cleans of P. Clarke, and the Budwig Diet... I found it most helpful for those who are lost, and want answers immediately, and links to up to date products.

I would like earth clinic readers to know that we have fought off our dog Poppy's soft tissue sarcoma. We were paying vet bills and oncology appointments plus some cancer medication but it did not help.
And its thank you to earth clinic I listed what other people were using and Poppy started : essiac tea, bromelain, astragalus, reishi mushrooms and flack seed oil. Still tumor was not giving up. Lastly we tried BLACK SALVE, it took few weeks to see improvement and after 3 months tumor is almost disappeared.
Thank you very much Earth Clinic. You have saved Poppys life.

2 months ago, we sent our 11.5 year old cat to the vet as he was losing weight, not eating and looking very ill. The vet diagnosed him through x-rays and blood tests (low blood count - putting him under GA twice) as having a fast growing cancer that was stopping him from breathing properly. As this was spreading fast, we were advised to put him down. There was no way I was going to do this without a fight so my wife (who is a GP) and I spent 2 nights researching online and came up with the following treatment:
1) Morning: 1 ml of flaxseed oil, 2 ml of Essiac tea, 4 - 5 ml of a well known brand of chicken essence; 1 pippete (c. 2 ml) of liquid multivitamin (for babies); 1 tablet of transfer factor (we take the powder out of the capsule, put it onto a small spoon drop it into his mouth.
2) Noon: 1 ml of flaxseed oil, 2 ml Essiac tea and 4-5 ml chicken essence
3) 5:30/6pm: As for breakfast PLUS 1 x 5mg prednicare tablet to stimulate his appetite
4) 10:30/11pm: as per his Noon time treatment
We also gave him steamed (I avoid microwaving!) cod or coley fish (which we buy frozen from the supermarkets - so very convenient).
Within a week, he was much better and eating really well. He has put on weight; his coat is glossy; and is pretty sprightly for his age - well enough to get into a fight with our neighbourhood rogue cat which ended with him getting a bitten - and now infected ear which I am treating with tea tree oil.
By the way, we brought him to the vet a fortnight after starting his treatment and the vet sure was shocked by his recovery.
From next week, I intend to reduce his treatment to 3 times a day i.e. leaving out the noon feed.
If your cat (or dog?) is in a similar situation as my cat was, try out the above. Naturally, you may have to up the dose if it is a dog.

Last year my Irish Wolfhoud contracted lymphatic leukemia. No conventional treatment seemed to help and we were trying everything. Beowulf had been an integral member of our family for 8 years and we could not imagine life without him.
We came across ozone therapy but most of them seemed to have other risks. Then I was introduced to ozone blood replacement therapy. It consists of taking some blood from the body, mixing it with ozone and then reintroducing it back into the body. We researched this and found no side effects but some seemingly remarkable anecdotal evidence of success. The price was reasonable and there seemed to be no risk so we decided to give it a try.
It took several treatments over the course of a month but at the end of the month Beowulf was in complete remission. To this day there is no sign of cancer and Beowulf is happy, health and still the loving and loyal protector of my children.
This ozone therapy appears to be effective against a number of conditions, curing many and reducing the problems of others, including other forms of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, infertility, erectile dysfunction, macular degeneration and others. Reportedly, many diseases are a result of a variety of inflamations. In many cases the ozone therapy eliminates the inflamation (viral, bacterial, environmental, free radicals, etc. ), others it attacks the resultingly affected cells and eliminates them. All this without harming healthy organs or cells. I hear that someone wants to conduct clinical trials using their therapy on HIV patients. This should be rather interesting if it can eradicate HIV/AIDS.
This ozone blood replacement therapy was incredibly effective and saved our Beowulf's life. I would recommend looking into it for other conditions and considering trying it.

I need to share what happend to my black lab, Teddy Bear. Maybe some of you reading this will be able to help your pet recover. Teddy developed a knot on his rectum around age 9. I thought it was just a hemmoroid but after several weeks it began bleeding. The area around the opening took on a bruised appearance with yellow, orange, reddish, and black colors and he began to act like he didn't feel well. I took him to the vet and was told it was cancer. He had surgery but withing a few months it was back. I took him in for more surgery. They removed several thumb size tumors and stiched him up. I was told that they didn't think they got it all. At that point I began praying for his recovery. The next day I received a cassete tape in the mail about a product called Pycnogenol. I listened to the tape on the way into work the next day. The narriator talked about all these folks that had cancer and other serious diseases taking this stuff and recovering completely. I had bought some of this stuff for myself about a year earlier in the hopes it would help me with chronic fatigue. It did nothing so I put it in the medicine cabinet and forgot about it. Anyway I heard the narriator tell that the most important thing about taking Pycnogenol is to take it 1 mg per pound of body weight. Well I figured Teddy weighed 90 pounds so I did the math and found that 5 capsules were needed to get close to his weight. I sprinkled the contents of the capsules on his food. Honestly I could not believe what happened next. Within one day of consuming just the first dose his rear end began to turn pink. He began to act like he felt a bit better. I gave him a second dose the next day and again daily from then on. By the time a week had passed you wouldn't believe it was the same dog. He was running and barking like he was a pup again. I kept him on the product until the bottle ran out. Withing a couple of weeks he began getting another spot on his butt so I put him back on the product. The knot went away. He stayed on Pyconogenol the rest of his life but he lived to the ripe old age of 17. I had to put him to sleep because his hips gave out, he couldn't walk, and he couldn't control his bladder & bowels any longer. I hated to do it but I had tried all that I knew to do. I stiil miss him....... But he lived 8 years longer than he would have if I hadn't had my prayer answered. Thank you Lord.
Let me say that there are differences between Pycnogenol and pine bark extract. Pine bark extract is a little bit cheaper than Pycnogenol but did not produce any effects for Teddy. I did not notice any difference between Pycnogenol brands.

My 10 yr dog Dillon has a lump in his throat. I took him to the vet and they told me it's spindle cell cancer. I love him and will do anything to make him better. He is going to get x-rays and blood work to see if he can handle having surgery. He will have to go to Uc Davis to get the surgery because it's right near his jugular. I just got laid off a couple of weeks ago and even if I could afford the surgery the thought of it terrifies me. Help! Would castor oil help him? How do I give it to him and how much? He weighd 62 lbs. I am devasted please reply.

My boy Pluto's been diagnosed with this type of cancer after an exploratory surgery was performed in his abdomen. After the cancer was identified, the prognosis wasn't good (~2 months) as gastro-intestinal cancer spreads/ regrows rapidly. It's very nearly 3 months now and the doctor gave us some antibiotics, steroids and pain medication due to the symptoms re-emerging. They worked briefly for a few days, but he's again gone back to worse. I spoke to the doctor and all she said she can do is to wait for him to pass naturally or to put him to sleep.
I'd like to hear from some of you reading this if there is any alternative treatment I can look into?
I'd really appreciate it. Thanks for your time.

I'm wanting to buy a home and tight for money right now. My dog weighs 68lbs and is approaching 8 years old. How much tumeric powder should I give my dog and what are the best foods to sneak it in with. My dog eats a dry dog food of duck and potato. Should I be giving my dog more meat? Some where I came across sardines? Can the meat source be chicken/ turkey or beef/ goat? Can my dog have veggies? My dog happens to also like broccoli and carrots. Can my dog also have cheese from cows milk or is goat cheese better? Thanks, michele

My dog of 7 years, Pippie, developed a tumor back in July of 2011. We had it removed in September 2011. Once removed it clustered into numerous tumors around the surgery line. At this point we knew she had mast cell tumors. The first surgery didn't remove all the cancer, this new cluster of tumors spread fast and moved into her lymph node. We have removed the tumors on the skin along with the affected lymph node and she is currently going thru radiation treatments. Once radiation is complete she will start Chemo next week.
I just learned about turmeric and Curcumin and found a dog food that contains turmeric (Solid Gold). I've started to feed her this food and have high hopes that it will prevent any other tumors from forming. My concern is how much turmeric is in this dog food. Is it enough? Since the tumor made it to her lymph nodes, the cancer cells could have traveled anyway. I wonder if I should take her off the dog food and give her a manual dose.

My 'peaches & cream' cat, Jasper, has just been diagnosed with skin cancer on one of his eye lids. I've begun painting the area with turmeric & aloe (from my garden) with a make-up brush. I am adding turmeric to his food (1/4 tsp. 2x a day). Will let you know how this goes, but so far, so good!
