Hello, would you be kind enough to tell me if anything has been beneficial for putting lung mets in remission?. My 5yr old Newfie DX last june with OS had amp, chemo, Metronomic and have combined holistic, home made diet and Artemisinin. Her lungs WERE clear until April. She now has numerous mets that are growing at a rate of 1.5 -1 cm every 3 weeks. Her back leg has recently become quite waek, having difficulty getting up. Once up she is OK. Had X-rays done on legs and spine. No sign of cancer. I would love advice. Thank you, Eileen

I have been doing Voluntary all creature rescue for nearly 40 years. I have a dear 4 year old Newfoundland who is a therapy dog for a child with disabilities. Sadly she was DX with OS last May. And as of 8 weeks ago her chest x-rays went from clear to multiple lung mets, some quite large. I had been doing conventional therapy(Carboplatin chemo) and since had been combining holistic (Artemisin protocol alternated with Citoxan /Piroxicam. She has no idea she is a sick as she is. She eats well has high energy and her blood work is excellent with the exception oh a Now high Lipase, and Only Lipase being high at the moment. I'm trying to get this God awful prognosis >Lung Mets< in remission so this dear sweet twosome will share more wonderful memories together. I would love your opinions and suggestions. Since last weeks DX she is no longer on Citoxan. I have her on The Artemisinin every evening now, and started her 2 days ago on 4mg LDN. ANY other suggestions you have found to be safe and affective for this grim Diagnosis? She is 150 pounds.

Thank you, Eileen. Thank you. And Graciously appreciated.

Hi there. Our dog Masha (Airedale. 12 years old) has been diagnosed with oral melanoma. It doesn't look good and seems to be agressive. They don't know how long she'll live and conventional treatmnents are not looking good.

Does anyone have experience treating this type of cancer with success? please help.

At first we thought it was an abcess cause he had some bad teeth that need to be pulled out, but now my vet did blood work, xrays, no cancer shows up, we tried 2 antibiotics, they aren't working... She's sure it's a tumor, but I can't afford biopsies & cancer treatments :(

He has a lump in the fleshy part, like lip area beside his left side of his nose and it spreads over that top side, below his eye, some days his eye looks swollen shut some... :(

Anyway, I read about Essiac tea, and ACV, is there anything else that works for cancer with cats? I read something about Castor oil, but I thought castor oil was toxic for cats?

Please anyone, with any results of their own please help me. My cat is deteriorating & I don't know what to try. The vet pretty much says the antibiotics should have cleared it up, and has pretty much just said to keep him comfortable till I 'think it's time' & we'll decide about euthenizing him... But I don't want it to come to that :(

Please msg me

Try a parasite kill. Look up Hulda Clark and get the right dosage and how long to take. Also look up "Cancer Tutor" this has a ton of information on cancer cures. My dog was diagnosed with bone cancer 3 years ago and is still here, so there is hope. Good luck!

Jenn, Have you tried pure turmeric powder? Not the supplements, since the pure stuff works immediately and is not contaminated with odd chemicals. Google "health benefits of turmeric. " I can say with confidence as a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, it is a wonderous natural root that has been used for centuries. I have used it for myself and for my dogs. I would highly recommend it, but you should research it so you have a better understanding of what its benefits may be and if this is an option for you. You can find it at any Asian/Indian grocery store for under $3. Good luck!

My 8 yr old yellow lab riley had been having trouble opening her mouth and chewing so I tried to open her mouth to look inside and she was in a lot of pain and could not open her mouth without yelping. I watched her for a few days then noticed a large lump on her upper jaw. I took her to the vet and they did xrays and told me it is cancer. They said I can have her go into surgery but it is very tricky due to where it is or have her go through radiation. Both of these treatments are not guarateed to work and cost thousands of dollars that I do not have. The vet said that I can medicate her so she is not in pain but the tumor will continue to grow until she cannot open her mouth. I can't sit and wait for that to happen. She is a very healthy happy dog and I need to do something to make her better.

The bone on the one side of her jaw is also much thinner than the other side. I have been researching on the ACV and Budwig Protocol but I'm not sure if I should start anything else in conjunction with these. If anyone has any advice that would be great!

Katie, I'm a big proponent of Magnet Therapy as it has helped me and my pets very much for several yrs now. For something as serious as this, I would find an old or unused music speaker you might have discarded in the garage; or take one out of an old speaker cabinet that no longer works. Wrap the speaker in a thin cotton cloth and place it over the affected area for at least 1 hr daily or more and more frequently if you can manage. This will bring immediate relief of pain & swelling AND give whatever cancer treatment you choose a big boost. Magnetic Belts and straps are available online and work well (i use them every day). A velcro strap with a 4x4 embedded magnets might fit over the area if your dog could tolerate it for any length of time.

As for C treatment I would use H2O2 drops in the water bowl. Begin slowly with 4 drops 3% and work up to maybe as much as twenty. If possible use cotton w/ H2O2 locally on the affected area, but hopefully there will be direct contact while drinking.

Hope this helps and report results.

Hi Ted,

I know how busy you are but I am hoping that you can reply as soon as you are able. My yorkie has lymphoma with hugh lymph nodes all over her body. The vet basically sent her home to die. She weighs about 8-9 pounds. I am giving her reishi mushrooms and astralagus and l-lysine. I am guessing and the amounts because she is so small. Do you know the dosage for a small 8 pound dog? I want to give her the dmso with butyeric acid but I cannot find it anywhere. There is a product called buteraid which has a buteric acid from calcium and magnesium. It comes in a pill form. Would this product work?

Also I can buy DMSO, but I don't know if it would help without the buteric acid or the tributeric.

If you could recommend a way to use the DMSO that would help I would appreciate it or any other suggestions?

Thank you so much for your help.

Please help me!!! I am soooo sad.... My 7 year old chihuahua may have lymphoma. I want to start Ted's recommendation for healing cancer using the reishi mushroon, bromelain, and sabah snake grass. She weighs 4.9 lbs... How much do I give her?

Also, she is on antiobotics doxycilline 25 mg for Lyme disease. She is going on her 2nd week.

Can you please foward my request to Ted? I am sooooo upset and want to help my chihuahua.

Also, does Ted recommend chemotherapy?

Chemo is rarely successful. It has a 97% failure rate in 5 year survival for humans, worse if it is dogs over a shorter period of time. Dogs don't get cancer in general until their owners feed them wheat, dog food, carbohydrates, and especially fruits. Now the treatment for most dogs is to avoid all carbohydrates and take 1000 mg astralagus twice a day, for the lymph nodes. Large dogs it might be 3 to 4 times a day. I have good treatments for dogs but most are not available or easily found, but I will recommend those that are found locally, such as DMSO but aloe vera oil is not easily found, but is mixed in it, however castor oil is easier, so DMSO 2/3 mixed with 1/3 castor oil, this is applied on the dog topically. It helps if clove oil is added, but it is something like 1 drop per liter of water, shaken into the dog's drinking water, and reishi mushroom extract in capsule or tea is mixed in the dog's drinking water, twice a day. There are others, if you can find it, sabah snake grass and andrographis just 1/8 teaspoon combined once a day if possible. Try to add to the food one capsule of enzymes with each meal, but not tablet form. This should be enough for most purposes, but it must be understood that the food is mostly meats, and is preferably partially cooked, if they were cooked it would contain heterocyclic amines, which are cancer causing, and prepared meats are also cancer causing and may contain acrolien, these must be avoided, all canned foods contain bisphenol A, and they are cancer causing also, so it is best to prepare fresh meats yourself, with some organ meats, such as heart, liver and kidneys. Most important is to give them some lysine, say 1/4 teaspoon once a day or twice a day would be more than sufficient for that size dog. If he is weak perhaps, B50 once a week and selenium 200 mcg once a week.

It used to be that cancer was almost unknown in Thailand and that was 20 years ago. At that time there were no dog food companies, when they came, within a few years there was a sudden rise in dog cancer. You also cannot feed dogs chocolates, they are deadly for them.

Dogs are generally easily cured with natural therapies, it takes 3 months for tumors to completely disappear with some of the above remedies. In lymph cancer cases I used astralagus and lysine among my most important. And one thing you have to realize immune system can be acquired from other animals if the meats are generally uncooked, whether they be snakes, crocodile, chickens, or wolves, but are consumed in form of blood, just a little--100 mg of dried blood, in case you want some knowledge. The crocodile generally has the most advanced immune system, given their behavior of living in swamps and territorial protection, and it is sold in Thailand as a health supplement, but its weakness is that it doesn't work if blood sugar exceeds 90 mg/dL even for dogs, but luckily most dogs with cancer are under that, and more well disciplined than humans and don't run around looking for other treatments that actually kill them while you are doing natural therapies. Humans are complicated and they make mountains out of molehills in cancer treatment, therein lies the failure to begin with.

My 11 year old border collie has a tumor on her mandible- the vet will not biopsy it because she said is too painful, and I am opposed to having half of her mandible removed at 11 years old. My main concern is her comfort, what would help this tumor shrink so she is able to eat in comfort and play with her brother without it bleeding?

My 7 year old chihuahua may have lymphoma. I am devastated but also very hopeful. I am getting the results back in 2 days? Is there anything you can suggest to be proactive with helping boost her immune system or possible steps or natural remedies to look into? THANK YOU!!!

First get with holistic vet. My 3 year old lab mix has stage four plus lymphoma.

I started her on prednisone, because she was declining rapidly. Her lymph nodes are still large but appetite is needed to take the blow of nutriceuticals I am blasting her with.

Vet but her on cantron, every four hours.

I have her on BSST, same thing as essiac tea ingredients.

Beta glucan 1, 3.1, 6. astragulus, fish oil, org chicken , broccoli, cottage cheese with flax oil, probiotics (primal defense), org yogurt, kiefer, bromelain, milk thistle,

Soon to do night stand alone of artemsinin, had to order it online.

Also she gets acupuncture once a week.

No way chemo. Sure kill the immune system some more that caused the cancer in the first place. Modern medicine is for profit only. Stop feeding the beast of corruption, even if you have the money.

My cat, has a progressive cancer and I started him on essiac tea about 3 days ago. Just wanted to see if anyone has any other recommendations on what else I could give him. I was pretty much told there was no treatment for him and honestly I did not receive much advice or sympathy from the vet I took him to. I just want to try everything I can for him. Still holding out hope and faith that he can recover.

Like you, my cat's been diagnosed with cancer. The vet said last month he had two months (tops) to live.. "take him home and enjoy him". I know your hell, dear. Between the tears & begging God I've been moving towards a more responsible proactive way to get him back to perfect health. Currently he isn't even eating, lost a lot of weight and basically wanted to "shut down". So.. since finding this website I've incorporated some new things:

1. Buy organic everything if possible. Why confuse things is my motto (with possible pesticides).

2. When he ate I found kitten food was better. It adds weight, easy to digest and the petsmart gave me their best brand (purest) for him.

3. Raw chicken livers. Sounds just awful. Got the idea here, though. I give my cat the blood through a syringe. He likes it, so I'm in.

4. Collidal Silver. I got one from the health food store yesterday (lowest dose possible) in a dropper. I gave him his first dropper dose yesterday.

5. Aloe Vera Juice (must be organic). I bought George's brand. It was suggested here (I think). Regular aloe vera is toxic to cats unless it's directly from the plant or organic. I'm trying to help his digestive system (enlarged kidney, probable intestinal things problems due to his being prescribed prednisolone steroids). I gave one dropper (needleless syringe) last night. It's a teaspoon ( which = 5ml.).

6. Apple Cider Vinegar. I just put a small amount in my hand & rubbed the back of his neck. I have no idea beyond this but seems harmless and may help.

7. Vet gave me pain med (an opiate) to give him so I may keep that part up. Other two meds I'm thinking of letting go now and focusing on these more natural methods.

I'll come back, continue to post what's working, what's not. Like I say, the vet said it's very aggresive & he should be gone (but he's not). If he seems to be in obvious pain I'll go do the right thing and say goodbye. Until then it's time to rise to the occasion. Hang in there, dear.

I have found this site and began reading the posts to find help for my cat. Pie Pie is 15 years old and has a fast growing cancer on his right side of face. It is causing him some breathing problems and also his eye on the side. Otherwise he eats heartily, snuggles. I am giving him a pain med twice a day and was told he had 1- 2 months to go. I would like to try something to save his life as he is my dearest friend.

I also have a very small budget but will do anything for him... Can someone suggest what to do? I need to act quickly and am not sure what to give him. Thanks for help.

I too have a cat that is 15 and recently has cancer on the right side of her face with her eye swelling out... I have been putting castor oil where the swelling is and have just started wheat grass juice 3 or 4 drops twice a day and will increase it... It seems like the swelling has gone down a bit... Will let you know...

Castor oil rubbed once or twice a day will cure a tumor in cats or dogs in 30 days... At least that what I have read for a very reliable source...

hi, I have just been told that my 9 year old lab/mix female dog has osteosarcoma, and the vet is recommending amputating her leg in a few days. I really don't want this for her, but if it'll ease her suffering someway, I might have to opt for it. Does anyone have any experience with alternative remedies to combat this?

Hi, I'm in the same boat with my 7-year old Doberman. They want to wait 3-4 weeks to take another set of xrays to be sure that's what it is. Reading up on this osteosarcoma, though, it seems that it can spread quickly. I will immediately start with the cottage cheese and flax seed oil, as well as the castor oil packs.

Some time ago I met a lady who had an older dog (15 or 16) with a tumor on one of her front paws. She told me it comes and goes. When it shows up, she said she makes garlic poultices. When it gets better she quits doing anything. Apparently this had been going on for months. She had no money for a vet.

I did some research and the only thing I could come up with was that Sassy had bone cancer. I immediately supplied my new found friend with bentonite clay and told her to apply packs twice each day (once in the morning and again at night for overnight). The tumor started to fall off pice by peace and (by the way this tumor was the size of a silver dollar and seemed to bother Sassy a lot), and eventually healed and hair even started growing back over the area. Unbeknownst to me my friend stopped the packs and the tumor returned with a vengeance. Some time passed and when I found out what was going on I supplied more clay and it is unbelievable what came out of Sassy's foot-and foul smelling to the point it could make you sick. I scolded my friend royally for stoping the treatment and not telling me when she got worse again and had run out of clay.

Sassy has since passed on, probably from a combination of old age and her health issues (she also had severe arthritis), but I believe the clay was a step in the right direction to draw out the cancer and relieve pain. I have also read that turmeric helps with cancer, and astralagus helps with the immune system. The following links will give you some more insight. There are several more links on this page worth taking a look at.

There are also a few posts right here that might help

I just found this. Not so much specific to bone cancer or canine cancer but cancer in general-absolutely amazing

Wishing you and your little one all the best!!!

I have a Laso Apso which is 16 years old. I recently took him to the vet because he has a large lump/tumor on his neck. They advised me that it was cancer and at his age and the location of the lump they do not recommend surgery. He is still healthy and has an appetite. Lately he has been breathing heavy almost to the point where it sounds like he might throw up but hasn't. It sounds like there is mucus stuck in his throat. Do you have any advise on how I can help him feel more comfortable for the time that he has left?
Thank you,

Put him on homemade diet with lots of veggies. Add coconut oil and tumeric, Apple Cider Vinegar and lots of garlic. This should help. Also apply castor oil packs on his neck area or massge directly. See this under cancer. Start giving him essiac tea.

My 9 year old cat has been diagnosed with fibrosarcoma, a horrible cancerous growth right between his eyes. I'm not willing to pay/subject him to chemo and radiation, but feel like there's still something that can be done. Any suggestions as to how I can get the growth to shrink?

I don't know much about CA or tumors except all the health reading I have been doing for 2 years: First give your cat raw foods, no carbs, , use ground turkey once a day, then, raw chicken livers once a day, so you give them both to the cat one at a time each day: all food at room temp or warmer, if the cat does not act like he will eat the meat, just leave it down for him to get hungry: NO MICROWAVE HEATING. Starving the CA/tumor with the absence of carbohydrates. I hope it helps.

If the tumor is outside the cat or dog, rub castor oil on it... The tumor will dissappear in about a month...

The "Palma De Christi" type oil... Not the drugstore type... It will also work wonders for all type of things for pets and humans... Miracle stuff... "Google" the benefits...

Never got any feedback B4. Here we are a month later. I have been doing Essiac for cats but it does have alcohol, which I read it should not. It did clear up what I believe were red cancer cells on the outside of his nostril. I am going to try Vascustatin capsules which are suppose to destroy the blood vessel supply to the tumor. Has anyone used this?? He had been on Orbax for upper respiratory infection, which after several days seems not 2 be helping, profuse snotty discharge from both nostrils, lots of mucousy stuff in mouth. I am very concerned for his breathing since this meaty mass of tumor covers major part of back of mouth area. I quit the H2O2 therapy but am starting it again. I would love anyone's help, experience with anything like this. I do not know for sure what I can apply topically to the tumor, other than spraying with. 5% H2O2 usually 2xday. I had him on Nu-Feline Granulars which have fish protein but also have quite a few carbohydrates, so am unsure if he should have this with this tumor. I have been mostly feeding him baby food with whey protein (on casein) Pet tinic, some ester Vit c, Radical raiders antioxidant formula and Immune Defense which is a combo of abt 15 different medicinal mushroom. Am waiting to get new supplement Only Natural Pet Immune Strenghthener-has a lot of testimonials for lymphoma, mast cell tumors, but I saw no mention of possible squamous cell, in case that may be what he has. I wish someone would give me some advice on this. I was wondering about the castor oil treatments but his tumor is in his mouth. Today we went to vet again and he is now on Delta Albaplex which has 2 types of antibiotics and a low dose of prednisilone. He is getting thinner. I supplement with lots of subcu fluids. PLEASE, I REALLY COULD USE SOME HELP HERE!!

My cat stopped eating and has a large mammary tumor. We were able to get her to eat again by giving her 1 drop of MMS mixed with 1 drop of citric acid. We waited at least 5 min for it to turn yellow and then added tuna juice so our cat would take it. We have been doing this everyday, and our cat's appetite has come back. Also, you might want to do a search for hydrazine sulfate, it's used to starve the tumor of glucose. My thoughts are.... Find a way to starve the tumor and cut off its blood supply.
