Hi All, what a wonderful site! Ive posted years ago for myself and my Akita/malamute, now 10. 5 yrs and we are both on Apple Cider Vinegar for life, now 5yrs. It cured my dogs uti in 2 days. Thank you so much.
My question is now my dog has a "mass" issue where the gum on the bottom front teeth is growing over the teeth. I have taken him to the U of Phili vet school and a 2 local oral vets. They all say it may not be cancerous but it appears to be a fast growing tumor, and should be cut out and down into the gum/jaw. It will continue to "invade" other teeth, and expand under the gum line. I have seen it getting larger, over the last 3 months, (3/4-1 inch exposed), now the gum, which isnt discolored or bothersome, will eventually make it hard for him to eat and just expand. They all want $2500.00 prices to remove the teeth in front and whatever else below gumline.
The dog is approaching 11 years old and Im totally maxed out on credit cards. I feed him blue buffallo, and he gets a capful of acv, and now tons of fish oil caps, (5) along with vitamins. Obvioulsy, I cant apply anything topically. He has hypothyroid and his beautiful luxerious white mane is 60% gone, w/rat tail. Im not concerned with that( esthetics), but more about the tumor growing in his mouth. The Drs. all threw some fancy jargon about what kind of tumor it might be, which I cant pronounce. I had a chest xray done to be sure nothing had spread to his lungs, (ok) so for now we are calling it non cancerous. Does anyone have a natural option? Herbal? I really have to weigh out the age of the dog, the money, which I would have to borrow, ( I cant even pay my irs bill this year!) of an otherwise healthy, very mobile, sweetheart of a dog.
thanks to Ted and the great folks at Earthclinic- I tell everyone about this site and its "angels",
best to all, Andrew
