Fenbendazole Dewormer

It took me a long time to write this review because cancer does kill and you cannot blame on something you tried. But I later read on earth clinic or the facebook group for this med that fenbendazole isn't recommended for dogs that have kidney issues. Schnauzers are prone to kidney problems.

I bought fenben (panacur brand, as recommended by J. Tippens) on 9/19. My dog was dead within a month, on 10/17. I know it has helped PEOPLE but on the facebook group (mycancerstory.rocks for pets) pretty much all the pets are put to sleep after trying this dewormer. And there aren't only schnauzers posted there. I only read 1 story that a dog beat cancer after taking panacur.

I think this medication might help human beings beat cancer, but not pets. Mind you, I was also giving my dog essiac tea internally and cansema (black salve) externally.

Cansema worked fast on literally pulling the tumor out of his paw pad, but the tumor was so big that it would take a while to remove the whole tumor (it was wrapping around his paw, I wrote about it on my post about castor oil and turmeric).

I suspect fenbendazole affected him in a negative way, because how come he had been diagnosed in mid 2020 and he was still eating and walking and after starting on fenben, he lost his appetite and became too weak to go for walks or even poop? He was losing his balance and seem uninterested in everything, even when someone knocked on the door.

I think people should not give this to their pets to treat cancer because the pet cannot tell you if it is affecting them internally.

I wish I had not tried fenben because my dog was still interested in going for walks and walking himself to drink water and eat his food. But I am not angry at his death, he would have passed away eventually, even if it would have been 5 years later. I am glad he isn't in pain anymore. I don't have another dog now.


Essiac Tea

First, I wish to thank each person who has had success with Essiac Tea and reported it here on Earth Clinic. I say that because my little Honey Bee, part Chihuahua, was diagnosed with a malignant mast cell tumor on her left thigh over a month ago. The vet wanted to operate, but said she'd prefer that I take her to the vet school because some of the tumor is inside her thigh muscle. I called the school, and they said they were booked out two months on such surgeries. That's when I turned to Earth Clinic and read about several remedies for cancer.

I decided on Essiac Tea and chaga mushroom. I started her right away and also added something I take to boost my immune system called Epicor. Epicor is fermented brewer's yeast (which sounds weird since I would think all brewer's yeast ends up fermented, doesn't it? :-) I think there is a little more to it, but anyway, it really works! I used to get colds and flus like clockwork every year, about three times and some would last for weeks. I hated being sick and dragging around, which is why I finally discovered Epicor. I have not had one bout of a cold or flu in six or seven years! Yay!! So, I decided if it works by boosting the immune system, why not add it to the mix.

Then, today, I decided to see what I could learn about Essiac and ended up on Wikipedia where, to my alarm, whoever submitted the information Wikipedia has on Essiac Tea couldn't find one good thing to say about it! I could feel myself getting uptight and also confused since I have been pleased with what I am seeing on Honey Bee's leg. I swear it sure looks like the "lump" is smaller and, when I palpate it, I can't even find anything that feels like a lump. It's like the skin was stretched and is sagging a little but there's nothing in there! In addition, Honey Bee has never felt so good! She's running around all happy and just as feisty as ever when another dog has the gall to jump up on "her" couch! But, still, I was really getting worried reading that jive so I came right over to EC and, ahhhh!, here are these wonderful testimonies to the ability of Essiac Tea to reduce or even eliminate cancer!

I just needed to read them again. I plan to take Honey Bee back to my vet at the two month mark and have an x-ray so we can do a legitimate comparison. In the meantime, thank you, thank you for your stories of success with Essiac. I believe them! As for the amounts I am using, I have the Essiac capsules from Canada and I've been giving her, she's about sixteen pounds, half a capsule in the morning and the other half in the evening. I'm giving close to a quarter teaspoon of chaga mushroom a.m. and p.m. and half of a 500 mg capsule of Epicor in the a.m., the rest of the capsule in the p.m.


Fenbendazole Dewormer

Feline Nasal Cancer - Adenocarcinoma

While I am hesitant to say with absolute confidence that my cat is cured, I wanted to post this because I know how heartbreaking it can be to have an animal diagnosed with cancer and feel completely helpless. I spent countless hours searching Earth Clinic as well as the internet for whatever small tip I could find to possibly help my cat and as it now appears that after about 3 months on this medication, it is nothing short of miraculous, all thanks be to God for answering my prayers.

My cat started having what appeared to be severe congestion about August or September of 2020. We had him to the vet several times, they always said it was upper respiratory and gave him several different types of antibiotics. Nothing helped. They wanted me to see a specialist but I had already scheduled an appointment a month earlier with a "cats only" vet, board certified.

We figured we would take him in there before going to a specialist. In early December 2020 we took him in, they sedated him and found a small growth at the back of his throat, removed it and the biopsy can back negative just before Christmas last year. We were overjoyed, he was his old self again and started eating normally, chasing his sister and just being the lovely soul we adored. Because he couldn't smell through his nose with his congestion, he wouldn't eat and we were syringe feeding him. We thought we were out of the woods.

However, in late March of 2021, we noticed he was snoring very loudly when he slept and started sounding congested again. I called the vet back and by the time we got back in, his nasal breathing was extremely blocked again and he had stopped eating wet food but would still eat dry food, but just not as much. Once again the vet sedated him to see if the growth was back, it was not but he stopped breathing during the procedure. Thankfully they were able to get his breathing started again and they did a nasal flush to try to see if they could get some discharge. They were able to get a small piece of tissue and said it didn't look good. The biopsy confirmed it was adenocarcinoma.

We were heartbroken.The vet suggested chemotherapy and radiation but since he was not a good candidate for sedation, radiation would have been out of the question and as we had a dog with throat cancer several years ago that we had radiation on, we decided the quality of life during that process just wasn't worth it. We did one round of chemo in early April of 2021 and saw absolutely no change. Even the vet indicated she did not feel it would be successful and that there was really nothing else they could do. I was determined to try to find something to help him, we had him on everything, Essiac Tea, Cat's Claw, Omega 7, Astaxathin, Apricot Kernel, Turmeric, and many different kinds of Chinese herbs and medicinals.

He was still eating Party Mix but we were struggling to get enough nutrients into him to supplement the Party Mix. We let him eat the Party Mix feeling that as long as he wanted to eat, we would give him what he would eat. He couldn't smell anything so he wouldn't eat, he would just walk away, no matter what we tried.

We bought the best quality canned food we could and added Cordyceps, Beef Liver, Nutritional Yeast, Beta Glucan, Transfer Factor, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera Juice and blended it all in a NutriBullet until smooth and syringe fed him several times a day. His nose started running in late May, a thick, green mucus. We had to wipe it several times a day, which he hated.

We kept this up hoping something would kick in. About mid July, he was eating even less and fighting us on giving him his syringes which left us feeling like we were going to have to make a really hard choice soon. Around this time I was searching YouTube and ran across a video called "Cancer Treated with Animal Deworming Medication", by Veterinary Secrets. I watched it and then watched a video with a man cured of stage 4 lung cancer with the same medication (Joe Tippens cures Terminal Cancer with Pet Medicine). We decided that since our boy was going downhill, what did we have to lose. I went to TSC (Tractor Supply Company) the next day and purchased the dewormer (Fenbendazole). I bought it in liquid form (Safe Guard Goat Dewormer) thinking the liquid would be easier to administer and then I had to try to figure out the dosage. I search and search online and finally settled on about 1.4 ml in a small syringe. He promptly spit it out and threw it up. We then decided to put it in a vegetarian capsule which I got on Amazon. Filled up the capsule, popped it in his mouth after he had some food and he held it down just fine. The recommended dose was once per day for 3 days, then off for 4 days.

We did this for two weeks and noticed that on the days he got the medication, he seemed to feel better. Don't know if that was just wishful thinking but he was sleeping better and his appetite picked up some, still just the Party Mix on his own and still an extremely runny nose. About week three we noticed that on his days off of the medication, by the second day, he was noticeably, not feeling as well as the days he got the medication and it was taking longer for him to "bounce" back on his med days so we decided to keep him on it for 4 days and try 3 days off.

Still noticed he went downhill without it. We switched to 5 days on, 2 days off and this seemed to work best for him. We continued his syringe food and he seemed to be feeling better.

We did supplement his diet with Milk Thistle to help his kidneys and liver since the Fenbendazole is hard on the liver and also added Modified Citrus Pectin, which is supposed to help keep cancer cells from clumping together. He also receives 100 ml of Sub Q fluids (Lactated Ringers) daily to help flush the toxins out of his body. He gets one capsule per day of IP6, Boswellia, Omega 7, CoQ10 with PQQ and 2.5 mg of Melatonin with 3 drops of CBD oil at bedtime.

We also would use Saline drops in his nose, sometimes with Hydrogen Peroxide mixed in and sometimes we put a couple drops of DMSO directly in his nostrils to help him sneeze and clear out his nose. He also received two Nebulizer Treatments a day with saline and hydrogen peroxide to try to help clear his nose. Nothing seemed to clear it though.

About the end of September we hit a wall, he didn't want to eat much again and his nose seemed more congested than ever. He just seemed miserable. On a Thursday afternoon, I put a couple of drops of saline with hydrogen peroxide in his nostrils and he got a nose bleed. Not too bad but enough to need to be cleaned up. The nose continued to bleed Friday and Saturday, we would take a warm cloth and clean it for him. On Sunday we had to go away for a few hours and when we returned we found him waiting by the door for us, bright eyed and bloody nosed.

We noticed quite a bit of blood on the floor and on the sheet in the bed he liked to sleep in. We got him cleaned up and I cleaned up his bed and notice there was a large glob of something in one of the blood puddles. We couldn't really figure out what it was, we now think it was perhaps his nasal tumor.

Since that night, his nose stopped bleeding, it also stopped running. He went around the house in wonder, smelling everything. He started eating wet food about 2 days later and now, almost 2 weeks later, he eats everything we give him, just like before.

We're not sure what exactly helped but it sure seems the Fenbendazole did something. We figured the vet wasn't able to help him so what did we have to lose and as of today, he is playing and eating and happy.

We are continuing the medication for a month and if he continues to do well, next month we may go to every other day and see how he does. I wanted to post this because I know how desperate I was to find something for him and I am hoping it can help someone else. We believe he hit the wall the end of September because the tumor was either loose in this nose or had shifted, making it harder for him to breathe and he was finally able to get it out. Such a miracle. We don't know if we can call it a "cure", but for now, we'll take it and pray the progress continues.


Turmeric, Baking Soda and Aloe Vera

I have a remedy that has worked for my cat. She's a elderly kitty she is my sweet soulmate. Shes been very patient but it was tiring her out all this treatment . So its taken a matter of few months of patience I will say to finally cure heal her skin cancer. Also her mites on her nose to make it even more stressful have come over the last week on her nose and in her ears. I was at my wits end praying for help. She is a fighter of the age of 19 years she is still holding on now well now. She has the sqaumous carcinoma on her ear tips. I noticed lots of posts on it on the nose but none on the ears. So like to be the first to help other beloved cat owners in the world.

I applied first turmeric for one month. It was a messy process but helped it calm down on her ears after 1 month. It was the golden paste: mix turmeric, olive oil and a bit of spring water heated up and cooled in fridge, then applied with a make up brush brushed on. Then after that it started to inflame up bit again when I stopped it.

So second month I applied bicarbonate of soda, just a tiny bit mixed with the purest aloe vera gel. It was very soothing for her and she didn't lick the ear at all this time anyhow. So it was safe to put on skin I researched it but not to lick it off. So to be careful that kitty cannot lick at it.

Well after a few weeks her whole skin has improved the red sore has gone. At the end of ear scab. just scabbed over for a week red inflamed. I kept going and then finally now by my amazement new fresh skin is growing now. Finally pink but that's new skin so I am v pleased relieved so far.

Red skin cancer gone new skin growing.

So to help others if your cat gets it don't give up, keep going if used twice a day small amount pasted on you will beat kitty's skin cancer naturally no operations.

Also I treated her mites in her ears and swarmed on her nose all over her face with colloidal silver sprayed on nose away from her eyes gently. Then I applied cats sunscreen over the site twice a day. The cats sunscreen drowns mites and is safe if using a cats special sunscreen can bye online. I really hope I help cat owners. I will update on her progress. So far so good.

Namaste. Nicky UK


Red Clover Blossom and Coconut Oil Tea

Red Clover Blossom + Coconut Oil Tea For Non Estrogen Based Dog Cancer + Tumors

Hi, I have a 8 - 9 year old rescue husky who has Arthritis + now anal gland tumors + possibly others, the Vet suggested 1 of 2 option.. Major Surgery or "put him down", (He never had a life till now)

1 month ago after a ton of research, I started him on

Red Clover Blossom Tea +
Coconut oil, 2 - 3 Tsp.

Red Clover Blossoms Steeped for 1/2 Hour in 6 Ounces or less

Boiled Water, Cool then add 1/2 - 1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil.. 1 Time every other Day ..

Husky's have sensitive systems (ya, except they can eat anything outside LOL)

At any rate, The Red Clover Blossoms (Only) also have Curcumin + The RCB's also produce an Estrogen like substance + RCB's also act as a Blood Thinner - So Careful Folks Don't Use RCB's for Estrogen based Cancers (makes it worse)

Well, this is 1 month later ..

Odin is running around, Talking up a storm, back to my bouncing Boy .. Looks like he might be shedding Tumors (liquefied?)

He is a little loose but nothing significant, I have stopped the RCB's for this next week or 2 because his skin was quite red during the RCB Tea Treatment.

His Skin Tone is almost Normal, I am increasing His Coconut Oil to 1 Tsp. per day now, He eats it in a lump, I tried to eat it like that (consistency of coconut flavored Lard).

I'll drink it in my Coffee, thank You..

I looked into Turmeric + many other remedies + found that Turmeric without Black Pepper is not very effective, can cause an Acidic System (You want an Alkaline system to fight Cancer) + can cause Kidney + Liver Problems..

So, I opted for my own creation of RCB's + Coconut to start + will return to the Tea if necessary, right now, I want to give his system a chance to kick in with the help..

I think this is working people, start slowly ..

Prayers for all of Our Pups + Buddies

I hope this helps someone else's "Kids" out there

Thanks


Multiple Remedies

Posted by Nora (Acworth, Ga) on 02/23/2017

I used a multiple cure approach for a 12 year old cat with intestinal tumors; Essiac Tea, Turmeric, ground apricot kernels, baking soda & maple syrup, Astralgus, BioPrep+ (blue/green algae) IP6, DMSO, Neoplasene, Medicinal Mushroom Complex, a powder called NuVet Feline, colloidal silver and Pancreatic Enzymes. Her kidneys were failing, so I got her Astro's CRF oil, Creatinine Scrub, and Astro's predigested fish protein.

I put her on a mostly raw diet of organic chicken & turkey with a custom made vitamin mix with high dose vitamin D, occasionally, cooked wild caught salmon with organic brown rice. She won't eat raw voluntarily, so I made a paste out of it with the food processor and fed it to her with syringes, mixing the various doses into the meat paste. I fed her every two hours with the raw mixture, and gave her a bowl of cooked food overnight so I could sleep a few hours. She had symptoms of diabetes, (excessive urination and thirst) and that turned around in a matter of days with the addition of a concentrated mineral liquid containing chromium and vanadium to her water bowl. There are 74 trace minerals in it, and the results were dramatic. I gave four drops of the 99% pure DMSO mixed with seven drops of colloidal silver and 30 drops of purified water, three times a day. I brush her teeth with Orateen gel, following meals. She is back to eating very well and has gained back over a pound and a half of the weight she lost. The vet only does blood work, nothing else. Numbers for all values have moved toward the normal range. I can still feel the tumors, but they are really small now, and I can tell from the way she's acting that she's much better. The other thing I do every day is take this cat out in full sun. It's been four years since her diagnosis, and despite the bad teeth, she's still doing great.

Most of these things can be given within two hours of each other, the only thing that needs to be given at a four hour interval is the IP6, which interferes with the adsorption of vitamins & minerals. Neoplasene causes nausea, so I mix it with cooked food. Because she is so small, five drops. The manufacturer gives your vet the correct dosage information, so when you pick up the product get a syringe to measure the dose.

I began with one thing--Essiac Tea. Did more research and added a thing at a time until I started to see real results. I'm convinced the organic, grain free, carb free diet, loaded with nutrients is the key.


Colloidal Copper, Pure Aspirin

An update on curing my dog's cancer, 3 vets said he would be dead in 3 days to 3 months, it has been over 3 months now and he is just fine.

I just used colloidal copper and pure asperin that I got from an animal feed store. Within only 2 weeks he was playing again like a puppy, he is 12 years old. The vet wanted to use chemo but I am not stupid, I know chemo kills more than it helps, natural cures work better.


Budwig Diet

Posted by Amanda (New Zealand) on 08/14/2016

2 years ago our Labrador/Pitbull X, at that time 12 years old, was diagnosed with Lymphoma. And of course the suggested treatment was Chemo therapy with the added comment that it only would prolong his life by possibly a year, but eventually kill the dog.

As we had trust in natural therapies for cancer and our dog disliked the vet anyway, plus him being so old, we started to research alternative treatment options on Earthclinic.com and other websites. One of the treatments we came across on Earthclinic was the Budwig protocol, which a few dog owners had used on their dogs with cancer successfully. After more research on that particular treatment we thought we give it a go.

So the regime we followed was that we gave him twice a day with his food 4 Tblsp quark+2 Flaxseed oil (mixed to an emulsion), we added 1-2 teaspoons of turmeric powder after mixing the quark and flaxoil. Also we changed our dog to a grain free diet. In this case we changed to Nutrience dry dog food.

Although the quark is low fat, our dog did gain weight over this time (maybe 4 kg). And also something very odd happened: he started to loose patches of hair all over his body. They came off with scabs of dry skin. At first we thought he is going to go bald, but after a few month the hair grew back shiny and beautiful. Not sure what exactly this meant, but we thought it might have been a sign of detoxification.

After 3 month he had an incident where he vomited a few times and we took it as a sign to half the dosage per day.

Then 2 or 3 month after halving the dosage he had a day where he didn't move, nor eat or drink, and we thought: This is it. He is dying today. Next day he was walking again though and he was back to normal after two days. So we decided to stop giving him the quark and flax oil.

During these 5-6 months he was quite lethargic and not really his normal self (already before he was diagnosed with cancer to be fair), he seemed to be depressed. But after his near death day, he started to be more clear again.

Before the treatment he had lots of fatty tumors all over his body. Today they are still there, but they all have halved in size.

He is now 14 years old, has a nice shiny coat, is in very good spirits and survived by far his 2-months-to-live cancer diagnosis (by 2 years so far). He walks slow because he has arthritis, but hey, he is 14 and even for his breed that's quite old.

We never went back to the vet to get checked if he still has cancer, because what's the point: He is the living proof two years later. We still have him on a grain free diet.

Whatever we did, it seemed to have worked. He won't live forever, but he sure got over the cancer.

Thank you earthclinic. What a wonderful source of knowledge of alternative treatments.


Essiac Tea

I know this is late in coming, but I wanted to weigh in on both the Essiac Tea & the shark cartilage.

My 16-yr-old Himalayan (cat) was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma - he had a tumor in his mouth. My vet said it was always fatal, & gave him 6 wks to 6 mos. to live. I was devastated.

I looked into natural rememdies & saw that many holistic vets recommended Essiac Tea, with which I was totally unfamiliar. I bought a bottle of a brand containing 8 herbs - the 4 in the original Essiac formula, plus 4 more. I also put him on shark cartilage.

The mouth tumor immediately started shrinking. I'm convinced it was the combination of the Essiac Tea & the shark cartilage. They both seemed to contribute. And it was 100% safe for him.

Long story short, he lived to be just a little over 19 yrs. old - quite a stretch from the 6 wks to 6 mos. our vet had originally given him!


Rooibos Tea

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.


Essiac Tea

Our cat, Jacob, was diagnosed with osteocarcoma (bone cancer) in 2000, and was given 3 months to live. We were told the cancer would metasticize and spread to his lungs very quickly, as this was the most aggressive kind of cancer. We started giving him Essiac tea, one teaspoonful in his wet food twice a day, and the cancer did not metasticize. Jacob in fact lived a happy life until November 2005, when he passed from cardiac arrest at age 15. I have always wanted to share this information, but until I found Earth Clinic, I was never sure how to get the message out there! This is an amazing resource tool - thank you for being there!


FucoTHIN Supplement

This is not about essiac tea. it is about tumors in animals.

I have seen at least 6 animals get over cancer tumors by taking a weight loss product containing brown seaweed Undaria Pinnatifida, Laminaria Japonica, and Pomegranate seed oil. its called fücoTHIN.

The dose for small animals is 3 daily and for larger animals 4 a day. I was shocked that it worked so fast. 3 weeks at the most.

I am sorry to say it does not seem to work as well on humans.


Essiac Tea

I cooked brown rice, green beans and fresh white fish every day. All was low salt. He ate 6 very small meals instead of one as most dogs eat. I also added Milk Thistle and SAM-E200 from GNC. He took Urdosal (Spelling??) for the gallbladder. This was the only prescription he took. I kept a Scottie alive 10 months longer than the vet ever thought possible. He had liver cancer. His stomach stopped swelling after he ate when he was put on this diet. This lowered his pain. He was still interested in the girl dog next door just 1 day before he passed away. He died with dignity.
