I just came back from my Homeopathic vet, and this is what she recommended for my dogs growth which could be cancer.... Essiac Tea twice a day, Vitamin A and D, liquid formula, once a day, and Calcarea Carbonica, once a week till the growth shrinks. We arent going to have a biopsy done, as this can irritate the cancer cells, and cause them to grow. But she said if she does have cancer this is what she recommends. And possibly surgery, since it hasnt gone to other parts of her body. She recommends lightly cooked meat, processed by Rayne. 1/8 teaspoon Tummeric for her 10 lbs, twice a day. Good luck to everyone, and keep your spirits up.

I took my cat to the Vet about seven months ago and they removed a large mass. She had a very aggressive cancer. Unfortunately, it came back. I really cannot afford to slam down nearly a thousand dollars for another surgery or chemo which is more expensive. I began giving my cat the 8 herb Essaic tea remedy. After four months most of the cancer was liquefied, but as it began to drain I was worried about infection. I put a saline compress on the open area. One teaspoon salt and one cup of warm water. Now I have begun giving my cat turmeric milk. One sixteen teaspoon of turmeric with one fourth cup of milk or half and half and a sprinkle of black pepper (helps with absorption). She seems better today. The fluid pouch is down, but her appetite is still bad.

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!

Cancer and Essiac Tea and FOCC (Flaxseed Oil and Cottage Cheese):

My boxer pit bull mix was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of his right shoulder last September. This is extremely metastastic and spreads to the lungs quickly, and in 95% of the cases, by the time of diagnosis it is already in the lungs. I initially did not amputate because he was 12-1/2 years and the vet said the prognosis was so poor. I immediately started him on 1 cup total a day of essiac tea (made by Resperin company, as research on internet said you should buy from the original company) and 1 cup total of cottage cheese a day mixed with 4 - 6 tbsp of fresh cold flaxseed oil a day, divided in 2 doses. He was still alive 5 months later which is almost impossible, but the bone tumor did not disappear and was causing him pain. I decided to amputate but docs wanted x-rays first to see if his lungs were full of cancer. There was NONE. He is a 3 legged, cancer free 13 year old happy dog today. The vets can't even explain it, and will not acknowledge it had anything to do with holistic treatments, only to say it is a fluke that it did not spread. They said he will at this point die of some other old age related dog disorder. :)

Over 3 years ago, our cat, Flora, developed a mass (tumour) in her abdomen and lost a significant amount of weight. She was about 12 years old at the time. I started giving her a dropper of concentrated essiac tea once a day and mixing about 1/2 teaspoon of the powdered herbs in her food. The tumor went away and she put weight back on. She is now 15 years old and doesn't look or act like a 15 year old cat. I've continued to give her the dropper of concentrate at least once a week up to every other day. I've also given the powdered essiac herbs to our dog for allergy eye drainage that would easily get infected. Since we started the dog on this, her allergy eye problem has been gone for over a year now. Again, about 1/2 tsp once a day.

this is not about essiac tea. it is about the tumors in animals. i have seen at least 6 animals get over cancer tumors by taking a weight loss product containg brown seaweed Undaria Pinnatifida, Laminaria Japonica, and Pomegranate seed oil. its called fuco somthing. the dose for small animals is 3 daily and for larger animals 4 a day. i was shocked that it worked so fast. 3 wks. at the most. sorry to say it does not seem to work as well on humans.

I understand this is much later then the posting, however, I wanted to note to verify that the sheep sorrel used has the root included in the mix. Most mixes will state if a root is included and in many of them the root is not stated for sheep sorrel. The roots are the important part of the plant.

Hi Nicole,

I have been treating my 9yr old dog with it, about 5oz. a day along with Avemar 1 pck a day, and 6 caps of Transfer Factor Plus. My pup is 9yr old male bull mastiff weighing 185lbs. We did not go thru a bone marrow test so don't know for sure, but they said its either Leukemia or Lymphoma. He is doing ok for now but his lymph nodes are still enlarged. He has been on it for about 5 weeks now. I have been hoping for better but if I can help him kick it, I am in it for the long haul no matter what.

As for your cat, I think if you search around either further up or on this site, I saw at least one person that was giving some via a dropper bottle and it worked for them. Also another that was mixing a small amount of the dry herbs and I think that also worked. I never heard of doing it that way. I know some people keep the sludge and use that to mix in with the food. Good luck with your kitty!

An update on curing my dogs 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 cemo but I am not stupid, I know chemo kills more than it helps, natural cures work better.

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.


Essiac Tea, Diet  

Posted by Ryan (Oaklyn, Nj, United States) on 06/10/2012

After receiving the devastating news on Friday that our 8 year old rescue cat "Tilt" has lymphoma, my wife and I began researching our options. Chemo was immediately suggested by the vet, although we won't get the final numbers until we see the oncologist. Personally, I'm not too keen on putting Tilt through the agony of compromising her immune system. According to the vet Tilt has 2 years to live if we don't do anything, I would like to try the holistic route.

I ordered ES Clear(which is basically the same as Essiac) and did further research on Essiac Tea. On Saturday we began the process of changing Tilts diet. We went to a local, all natural pet store and one the managers gave us some helpful information. He suggested we switch Tilts diet from canned food to raw food. We bought a 3lb pack called Balance. Balance is raw chicken with vegetables in the shape of individual patties. Since cats are true carnivores, it is only natural for them to eat raw foods. Because Tilt is so used to crap canned food, we had to mix it with the raw chicken. As we go along we'll mix less and less. The pet health food manager also gave us HomeoPet Cleanz-Detox for the removal of unwanted toxins from organs. Since our vet just removed a tumor on Wednesday, we can't start the detox until Tilt is finished with the antibiotics.

Again, I'm not used to writing all this health jargon but I will continue posting Tilts progress. Hopefully it will help others.

So it has been been 4 months since my last post. My wife and I decided to do a mix of homeopathy and tradtional treatments. The thought was to take out the intitial tumour and do chemo with the essiac(ES clear, now called life gold) to keep her balanced. We completely changed her diet to a low carb, non grain, all organic canned food and some freeze dried raw food.

Because it is mammory cancer, our vet gave Tilt a year with chemo. The vet was also concerned that the cancer would spread to the lymphs. Which it did.

We were told there would be a strong possibilty that Tilt would be lethargic, lose her appetite, vomit, lose weight and her immune system would be compromised. Since we started her on the essiaic, Tilt showed little signs of the chemo. As a matter of fact, the vets have commented on how good she looks. She did lose her whiskers. Her blood work is fine. She dropped a little weight intially, mostly because we were feeding her friskies before the switch, and the operation that removed the tumour. She has since gained back some weight. Her appetite is as strong as ever and she is zipping around the house full of energy.

Last week our vet had discovered that the cancer had spread to her lymphs. And they wanted to start another round of chemo. There are little crusty pimples on her body the vet could not explain. Also a little thickenining of her skin on her belly. The vet wanted to biospy the skin thickening to make sure the cancer hadn't spread there too.

But honestly, I thought all this poking around was getting to be too much. I want to stop the chemo and biopsies so we can fully concentrate building her immune system. My feeling is the ES clear has been working and if given the chance fully go to work, without the toxic chemo, she could have a chance to live longer than the projected year.

Homeopathy does not work well with Chemo. Chemo will destroy your cat's immune system. I've been thru it all after 50 years of owning cats. The bumps on her body are probably a reaction from the chemo. If you read about Essiac tea the Original formula contained Sheep Sorrel Roots. Most "Original" Brands do not contain the Sheep Sorrel Roots. Search on Amazon & you'll probably find it. When my cat is sick I buy only Organic, no hormones added Chicken. Cats do not need grain or vegetables. they are Obligate Carnivores. They eat Raw meat. You need to read up on raw meat diet for cats. You must add calcium & Taurine to the raw meat. I wouldn't feed her any packaged or canned food at all.So much to know to help your kitty. There great info on the internet about natural cures for your animal companions. Read as much as you can. I know you want to help her but be careful you don't do too much, she might stop eating if you give her too much stuff. A lot of LOVE & some natural food & Natural meds is the best thing for her. Best of luck to you.

About four months ago, my 14-year-old cat was diagnosed with mammary cancer. Although her prognosis was poor, I declined any conventional treatment, and instead chose to try the natural remedies from this wonderful web site. First, I started giving her Essiac 4-herb supplements: capsules mixed in with food (1/2 cap. 3x day) and the Essiac concentrate diluted with a bit of boiling water (3:1) to evaporate the alcohol level. Both were purchased at herbal-healer.com and I am infinitely grateful to Gayle from Tulsa for sharing this remedy with all of us. I administered the Essiac concentrate, approx. 1/2 to 1 eye dropper full, once per day. Within a week, I observed a significant improvement in my cat's overall health. She has gained weight, became more energetic and playful. The most exciting change I have noticed happened within the past 2 weeks: my cat's tumor began to shrink in size! It was the size of a walnut and now I can barely feel it. However, I should point out that Essiac is not the only supplement I gave to my kitty (although I feel it was the most influential). Some of the other things I started giving her daily are: fish oil, astragalus capsules, beta glucans, milk thistle capsules... all approx. 1 capsule/day in several feedings. I also give her about 1/2 of a grinded apricot kernel per day- it should be initiated with an even smaller amount to avoid toxicity, and then gradually increased...(please research this remedy for yourself and administer very carefully to avoid possible side effects!) I want to also mention the importance of changing your cat's diet to a low-carb, high protein type. Two of my cat's favorites are EVO and Wellness. Lastly, to help my kitty heal, I've switched her from tap water to spring water (to which I regularly add a few drops of liquid stabilized oxygen) and her cat litter is now also the less toxic kind, called Swheat Scoop. The amount of all these vitamins, supplements, and herbs may seem overwhelming to you at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's actually quite doable... especially when it's your beloved pet's life that we are talking about!

I'd like to post an update on my cat's progress. It has been 11 months since she's been diagnosed with mammary gland cancer and she is doing great based solely on my homeopathic therapy. Her tumor has decreased significantly and at some point I could barely feel it, though it is worth mentioning that there was a time when I regrettably had to pause her supplement treatment, and the lump became somewhat more pronounced. Nevertheless, the supplement regime was soon resumed and she is now once again an energetic, playful kitty. Based upon my observation of her reaction to various supplements, I adjusted her vitamin intake as follows:

She now takes, on a daily basis:
1. 1 capsule of Essiac 4-herb capsules mixed in with food (1/2 cap. 2xday). PLEASE NOTE ******I have stopped giving my cat the concentrated form of Essiac a while ago because despite the fact that I diluted the concentrate extensively, as Anon from UK pointed out, alcohol in any amount may cause liver damage and thus should not be given to animals****** Not to mention, she hated the fact that it had to be fed through the eyedropper, although the above-mentioned rationale still stands as far more critical.
2. Instead of fish oil, I now give her Shark Cartilage (also from herbalhealer.com - __ capsule per day, which I believe have done wonders since she was started on it (as far as vitality and energy level).
3. I continue to give her Astragalus capsules and Beta Glucans approx. 1 capsule/day in several feedings.
4. I've actually decreased the dosage of grinded apricot to a tiny __th kernel per day and I give it to her with intermittent breaks- approx once in every 2 days.
5. A few months ago I started her on ___ (crushed) Vit. D tablets (400 IU) once every 2 days, and she seems to respond well to it. I've researched its effects widely in theory and in practice, and so far feel that Vit.D has been beneficial.
6. She continues to eat a low-carb, high protein diet (Innova EVO dry food and Wellness canned food). Sometimes I feed her tiny amounts of home-cooked salmon and other fish just because she loves it, but I always make sure to add all of her supplements into it.

Last but not least, I want to emphasize the importance of researching the potential harmful effects of a vitamin or herb before administering it tp your pet!!! I mention this because I recently tried adding a tiny amount of Flax seed oil to the list above, but noticed an immediate negative reaction as in a radical drop in my cat's energy level, and so I discontinued it right away. If anyone has ideas or suggestions as to why this might have occurred, please do share. I am wondering whether flax should not be given to cats by and large, or more likely, whether some adverse interaction with other supplements that I am administering to her has taken place. I'll appreciate any comments in regards to this and will keep you posted on my kitty's healing process...

EC: Thanks so much for the update, Maria.

Hi Maria, From what I understand, Flaxseed oil cannot be metabolized by cats. The only essential fatty acid should be fish based I.E. Alaskan Salmon Oil. This is what I feed to my cats. Hope this helps.

Frankenscense helped slow cancer down. We were told our dog had 9 months to live, and to give her radiation treatments. I had heard of Frankenscense given internally for cancer, so we started her on capsules with a few drops of Frankenscense mixed with olive oil and skipped the radiation, since it would have stressed her out too much. That was 17 months ago, and she is still with us. The frankenscense is very high quality that can be taken internally, not the aromatherapy kind.

My dog contracted lymphatic leukemia. I went to the vet and she put him on a course of 4 rotating treatments with one week off for 4 months. He wasn't getting any better.

Right from the start I researched alternative cures to supplement his treatments but I'll get to those specifics later. I ran across information that ginger reactivates the mitochondria which shuts down in many forms of cancer. This controls the life cycle of the cell. When they're reactivated the infected cells that were supposed to have died off had they been healthy essentially commit suicide. This only affects the cancerous cells.

I was familiar with this from DiChloroAcetate, a generic drug now being researched at the University of Alberta with significant results on a variety of cancers. The problem with this was it's fatal to dogs.

I started grating ginger into his food twice a day, about an inch of fresh ginger at a time. Within 3 weeks he was clear of cancer. The vet was amazed. Previously she had not been into alternative treatments. Now she uses this and has included others that have been effective on this and other cancers.

Along the way I was giving him a variety of anti oxidants, mostly amino acids. Dylan never appeared sick. The only reason I found out were the lumps on this throat. Amino acids are the building blocks of the body so they helped keep him strong. The anti oxidants in them helped restrain the spread of the cancer.

The doctor said Dylan should have died 4 times and considered him a miracle dog. I credit the antioxidants for having kept him alive until I found the ginger.

Dylan's picture is now displayed prominantly on the wall of the veterinarians office and he's become something of a legend but he was always that way. He was a celebrity back when I lived in NYC. I couldn't walk him a block without someone asking about this big gorgeous giant schnauzer. Soon people were coming up to me asking if this was Dylan. He was known by name throughout the neighborhood by people who'd never met him. He was just a wonderful dog.

Unfortunately, I didn't keep him on the regimen. It seems theres often a reaction to chemo where after the cancer goes away it will come back later as a super cancer. It came on too fast and too strong.

The lesson is, even after you beat the cancer, keep treating it for at least several more months, particularly after chemotherapy.

I want to thank everybody for their helpful advice for Brutus.

I would like to share some vital information that I have stumbled upon in my search for answers. Brutus was neutered before he was 1 yr. old. When our animals are spayed and neutered they are stripped of their natural hormones that affect everything from bone marrow to bladder control. When humans have surgeries that diminish hormones, we are given necessary hormone treatments. Animals are not. All of the problems that Brutus is facing can be directly related to having no testosterone in his body for 12 years. Rimadyl is a hormone that stopped his pain but caused his incontinence. If Brutus was given testosterone at this stage he would be in extreme pain but the incontinence would stop. If you neuter your large, male dog when he's young, he will be over 50% more likely to develop osteosarcoma (deadly bone cancer) than male dogs that are not neutered! We put our animals through the torture of these operations because we've been convinced this is the best thing we can do for our beloved pets but these accepted, "standard" procedures strip them of the hormones they need. If you're thinking of getting your pet spayed or neutered, ask your vet about hormone treatments. I've never heard of any but maybe, if we're all aware, we will one day be able to change this barbaric treatment of our loved ones.

I would also like to let everybody know that since May 29, I have tried over 30 different supplements and remedies and I am finally seeing his cancerous forearm shrinking! Brutus now gets 1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt (unprocessed sea salt) in his water twice a day and a little sprinkle of it on 2 meals. His first salt water was given to him on Sun. July 14. His forearm looked like a baseball bat. It was huge, hard and no definition. Today, July 19, it has shrunk to less than half the size it was and you can see the definition again. I went to watercure2 that was referenced from earthclinic and I believe it's saving Brutus's life! It is also known to help arthritis and many other ailments. It's the least inexpensive thing and so easy! Brutus is walking better, his appetite is back and he's acting like himself again.

Thanks to earthclinic and all the caring people that tried to help Brutus.

Thank you fo posting your dogs results. I'll try it on mine! We adopted him from the Humane Society so he was already neutered. I've never heard of this correlation, I would seek hormonal help for him as long as it wouldn't cause cancer. Also, I used dmso for a tremendous sized tumor he had. I bought a new, natural bristled pastry brush (thought it best to use a food grade brush) and painted dmso liquid around the tumor. When It was removed, they were surprised it hadn't metastasized! I wasn't surprised. It has worked for me as well. Check it out.

I want to try the hydrogen peroxide treatment for my small dog. He weighs approximately 16 pounds. I was told he has a nasal/sinus tumor. I've been treating with cottage cheese and flax oil and MSM and transfer factor plus at present. Also tried eissac, turmeric, and some other supplements. The lump was growing and shrinking, went away completely and now is very big. Surgery cannot be done due to the location behind/above his eye and being close to the brain. I'm a bit nervous to try the 35% food grade as it seems dangerous to try. Has anyone used the 3% regular hydrogen peroxide from the store and had any success? Would this be safer to use? What dosage would I use and how would I use it/administer it of the 3% and of the 35%? He's had this since April 2008. The first 7-8 months I was told it was a sinus infection (by 3 different vets). Nov. 2008 I took him to emergency for a bulging eye and was told it was carcinoma.

I have started the hydrogen peroxide. I don't really know how much to put. I've read it's 1 ounce to a gallon of water (distilled or spring I believe, not tap) and then you are supposed to add SOME of that to the bowl of water. What I've been doing since it can be so toxic is to add a few drops to a gallon of water. I started with just one drop and am up to six drops per gallon of water. Then I shake it up before I add SOME of it to the drinking water. I usually put about 2/3 tap water and then the rest with the hydrogen peroxide mix. Then I pour in some essiac tea and 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and mix it around. If you can use all spring or distilled water that is better I think. I also give him PolyMVA (search polymva survivors). I put 4cc on his food. He's supposed to be getting 3cc twice a day but he usually only eats once. I just figured out about a week ago to put the dry food in a baggie and then put the PolyMVA on it so it soaks in. Before I was squirting it on and alot of it got wasted. He's also on Rimadyl which I don't really like him on but they say it controls the bleeding. His nose still bleeds though. He eats a grain free diet. His lump has gotten larger the past few months. When he was eating people food and raw diets I was giving him turemic (spice) about 1/8-1/4 tsp mixed in the food and milk thistle 1 capsule a day. I was also giving him transfer factor plus. And cottage cheese and flax oil. I would still be giving all of that but I can't get it mixed in the dry food. When he was on those his lump went away. I've had him on other things as well but can't think of them off hand. Also search neoplasene as I had someone tell me their dog with a nasal tumor is doing well with it. I was going to try but changed my mind after joining a yahoo group on it. I just ordered a chinese medicine herb mix. I haven't tried it yet. Search pawhealer for that. Or contact me at [email protected] Not sure if all will be listed. I tried not to list brands or websites since it is not allowed. Hope this helps. Sorry it took so long to answer.

I'm resending as I don't see the original post I sent a few days ago. Hope this can get posted. The lady's dog has the same cancer as my dog has. It does have products and websites if you need to delete them that's ok. I just want her to at least know what I used even if you can't list the brand names. It's sort of hard though since the name of the product is the brand name on some of them.

To Janie from Midland, TX
I just wanted to share what happened with my dog Snoopy on Tues. He was diagnosed with an inoperable nasal tumor back in Nov. 2008 after having nasal discharge and nose bleeds for 8 months. I was going to try neoplasene but after reading some of the posts of animals being sick I started looking for other options. I started Snoopy on PolyMVA about 4-5 weeks ago. He wasn't really getting the full dose because I was trying to put it on his dry food. I finally after about 2 weeks figured out to put the dry food in a baggie and shake it around until the PolyMVA was absorbed. Then I figured out I could add dry supplements to that also since the PolyMVA was a liquid they stuck to the food also. I added a chinese herb called Dissolve about 3 1/2 weeks ago and then about a week or 2 ago I added Transfer Factor Plus which he used to take but I hadn't been giving for awhile. I've also been putting hydrogen peroxide (12% food grade, it's toxic so be careful!), apple cider vinegar, and eissac tea in his water. He also takes Rimadyl. He had a hard tumor the size of 1/2 a golf ball on top of his head over his eye. Tues. morning he started sneezing, which he usually does when he first goes outside, then his nose bled a bit, which is normal for him, then I noticed the lump turned mushy. I called the vet and was told to bring him in. On the way to the vet I noticed the lump was gone! It had been less than an hours time. The vet said he thinks the tumor got so large the blood supply got cut off to part of it and part of the tumor died off. He said sometimes they drain in and sometimes out, he thinks Snoopy's drained in. He put him on antibiotics to prevent a bacterial infection. Snoopy's head feels a bit mushy on top but no lumps. The vet said he thinks part of it is excess skin from it being stretched so much by the tumor. His nose is still draining, which it has been like that for months. They said this is good. Snoopy seems pretty happy! He did develop some red skin over his eyes yesterday afternoon. The vet said it could be a reaction to the antibiotics. He said he thinks we are making progress and to continue what I have been doing. I wanted to share the experience incase it might help someone else. Snoopy is 14 years old, a mixed breed yorkie, llasha?? or low chen??. He weighs about 15 pounds. Just a note...I used 12% food grade hydrogen peroxide. I mixed it 11 drops to a gallon of spring water. I would fill his bowl with regular tap water 1/2-2/3 full then add the hydrogen peroxide mixed water. Then I would put 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, and just pour some eissac tea in, I never really measured the tea out. He gets 6cc of the PolyMVA, about a teaspoon of the Dissolve and one capsule of the Transfer Factor Plus once a day. He takes 1/2 tablet of 25mg Rimadyl twice a day. He eats Natures Variety NO GRAIN dry food and has started eating cooked chicken again plus he eats NO GRAINERS dog bisquits which I get at Walmart. The dog food is available at Pet Supplies Plus, hydrogen peroxide at the health food store or I think it can be purchased online too. Dissolve is from pawhealers.com, eissac tea I get at a tea shop near me, you might be able to find in health food stores or online too. Apple cider vinegar I buy at the regular store (Walmart or wherever), PolyMVA is sold online polymvasurvivors. com. I get the pet formula. And Transfer Factor Plus is thru 4Life. I can give you the lady's name I get it from if you are interested in that. I hope Snoopy continues to improve and I hope that this will help someone else's dog or cat as well.

My sister in law's cat was a very butch 'husky' male. Long hair, gorgeous. He suddenly lost half his weight and became very docile. SIL basically left him to die, but I had a soft spot for him, and took him to the vet. Liver cancer, he's got 6 weeks at best. Surgery was possible, but would cost $$$. SIL would never bother. I made a jug of water, 4 litres water and put one oz of 35% food grade H202. Put some of this solution in his drinking water daily. He began to throw up daily, but kept gaining weight! His fur became thick again, one happy fat kitty. I believe he was 'throwing up' the cancer in a healing crisis. Whatever he was throwing up, it didn't look like his food, and it was nasty. This was 6 months ago. He's just well again.

Our cat Izzy is 16 years old and has been poorly since before Christmas! The vet said that she has a lump in her stomach and suspects that it's a tumour. She is currently being given a steroid injection every 4 weeks to reduce the inflamation but the treatment will not shrink the tumour.

I stumbled accross Hydrogen Peroxide when reading _______. It mentions in the book that 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide can be ingested by Humans and Animals so I've ordered some today on line.

Dosage: Using an eye dropper mix 3 drops of 35% Hydrogen Peroxide with 6-8 ozs of distilled water or milk.

The problem I have is Izzy only drinks water from the tap and not from her water bowl. To get around this problem we will have to use a 2ml syringe and give it to her by hand. We will use milk to dilute it as some days she is off her food and at least this way she will also be getting some food. I will let you know how we get on! Thank you Kelly for sharing your story about your sister's cat!

For animals that like to drink from the tap, (which is bad....you should never let your pet drink tap water) look into getting a pet drinking fountain. Many of these fountains let the water come out in a stream just like water out of the faucet. The advantage of this is you can then add things to the water to improve the pets health.

As far as tap water....please give you pet spring or bottled drinking water that has been purified. This is really important if your pet is sick, and is something that many people overlook. If nothing else, get a PUR water filter you can attach to your faucet and use that water for your pet.

I would like to add to my other post that if you get a drinking fountain and are adding things to improve your pets health, you probably want to remove the carbon filter that most pet fountains come with.... As this may filter out whatever you are trying to add to the water.

Low Dose Naltrexone low low dose of 0.03 per pound call Skips Compounding in FL for exact dosing and ways to find a vet who will prescribe it.. Google it for humans and it does have info about cats and dose on LDN too. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OUR BABIES

My husband and I had a three year old female with osteosarcoma. We lost Hedwig in September 2010, but she lived a decent life, and far longer, than we dared hope after we started giving her LDN (low-dose naltrexone). In addition to what you're already doing, it could very well help. Hedwig took .4 mg (a human top dose is 4.5 mg). We have another cat on LDN for pancreatitis -- extremely effective -- who takes .25 mg. )

There's an LDN for Pets list at Yahoo where you could ask questions about it, and you can also contact Skip (or one of his pharmacists) at Skip's Pharmacy (in Florida, but they mail RX's all over the place), who has a lot of experience compounding it for animals as well as people (it has to be compounded in specific doses). What it does is increase the body's endorphin levels so that the immune system is regulated -- and many, many diseases, including cancers have a dysfunctioning immune system component. (I take LDN successfully for Crohn's disease, and it works for a host of issues. ) I would urge you to check out Skip's (Google the name) and/or sign up for the LDN for Pets list. Chances are good your vet won't have heard about LDN.
