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!
