Hi, 15months ago, I was told my Havanese of 11 years had a couple of weeks to live, 5 vets. He is a happy little guy with a growing tumor. With the help of a wonderful Holistic vet we changed diet and he is on herbs. Freeze dried "raw" food, turmeric, Six Gentle Pets, stasis breaker, vetasyl, lactulose, and four marvels. I give him organic pumpkin and feed him green beans and apples too. He never had surgery or chemo.
There is a facebook page dedicated to helping others whose dogs have this cancer, a lot of great info and feedback. I hope your dog is still ok.
Facebook page-- Dog Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC) -Bladder Cancer
Low Dose Naltrexone
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

If you use ESSIAC tea, yes, it is used internally and externally. Beware of non genuine products and use Essiac West online which I am using.
I take it this is for cancer cells on the outside only? Is there a way of using it for growths eg under the skin under the eye?

I'm looking for help.
My dog was just diagnosed with TCC (in the Urethra) and I'm looking for any information / medications / dietary help I can provide her. I've been given a prognosis of 6-12 months but she's in such a great mood.
If you have any suggestions I'm all ears.
She has just started chemo and proxicam.
Cancer - it is on the market for human use product call -Cesium Chloride, alternative cancer treatment Cesium Chloride, Google for web pages for information, very good.
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!
We had a problem with a large tumor on our female Rottweilers elbow. I researched everything on the net and came across the castor oil and turmeric remedy. I would apply the castor oil mixed with turmeric and soak a piece of flannel into it then apply over the tumor. Twice a day I would do this for 1 month. The tumor gradually began to open up and it did look worse before it got better. But it shrank the baseball sized tumor down to nothing. It is now all gone. I also only fed her a raw diet. Cancer thrives on processed sugar. If you remove it from their diet it starves the cancer.
Ted's Cancer protocol
The remedy for dog cancer is as follows: reishi mushroom, bromelain, and sabah snake grass. I gave another dog, in addition to that, lysine, butyric acid, and DMSO, for the tumor that is growing and it also disappeared in 3 months. The reishi mushroom was powdered, and mix in 10% bromelain and 10% sabah snake grass powder. The two substances that I know convert cancer cells to normal cells (that I also tried) were DMSO and butyric acid, so it is a 50/50 mix.
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.
Me again. I can't believe the difference the pycnogenol is making. The lump is very obviously shrinking. She's now able to comfortably lay on her left side again. I didn't think she was in pain before, but it must've been bothering her because now that the pycnogenol is in her system, she has her "puppy bark" back and is acting like a dog half her age. I just can't believe it.
I was recently diagnosed with severe endometriosis. After doing some searching online, I found that pycnogenol is supposedly good for endo, so I ordered some for myself. I decided to see what else pycnogenol is good for, and I found out it's also good for cancer. That got me wondering if it's safe for dogs to take. I found this review and decided to give it a try for my yellow lab, Lily. Lily is almost 11 years old, and she has a cancer tumor on her breast. It's been slowly growing and getting really hard. We don't want to put her through surgery at this age, and we don't want to get her put to sleep because she's not acting like the lump is bothering her. Anyway, I just started giving her a 100mg capsule of pycnogenol each day like maybe a week and a half ago. No word of a lie, within 2 days, it seemed to me like her lump was changing. Now, it is obvious that it's shrinking. I asked my husband yesterday to feel the lump to see if it feels any different (he's been feeling it periodically for months). He said the sides of the lump are still hard, but the bottom of it is definitely softer. I hope I'm not getting my hopes up too high for my girl, but at this point, the pycnogenol definitely seems to be helping her. I hope it helps me out with my endo, too. I ordered another bottle yesterday since we're blowing through this bottle pretty quickly with both of us taking it.
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.
My family golden retreiver was kicked by a deer for the second time a few months back. So when the site (joint of her paw) really swelled up, it was thought it was broken or damaged. Our amazing vet, who I refer everyone to, took one look and said "thats not swelling thats bone cancer". I was shocked, literally never expected anything like that. He is always right but I got the x-ray to confirm. Our poor Sadie has been really neglected. The sibling of mine that bought her and is supposed to take her to the vet does not work, is very wealthy, and apparently very selfish. The last time our dog Sadie, had been to the vet, I had to drive my boyfriend to work 40 minutes away so I could use our car, and my brother, my newborn baby, and I took her and paid for her appointment. This time, I had to take the kids I watch with me during work. She is such a good dog and deserves so much better so I am really driven. It has been a week and 2 days since the x-ray has confirmed and Sadie has gone from barely being able to get out to use the bathroom (we had to carry her up and down the stairs) and even crying at times... to running around, looking like a puppy again, and her paw has gone down half the size.
I cut out the dog food and have kept it to tuna, meats, and dark leafy greens. I fed her half a bulb of garlic (she was so ticked at me when the olive oil I disguisd it in gave way), I feed her coconut oil, budwigs everyday a few times a day, avaoado. I think the most important part was following one of Ted's regimens for cancer; aspirin every hour for four hours, vitamin c every hour for 6 hours, and lysine every hour until bed time. The aspirin is only supposed to be done one day every four days. Also garlic pills and turmeric. Hydrogen peroxide and kelp extract on the site of the cancer and internally. She does not like the Apple Cider Vinegar but eats the kelp and hydrogen peroxide off her paw and any drop I spill, and I chalk that up as she knows what she needs and give her more. I really think the aspirin is what helped the most. I am looking for the essiac tea and the ingredients ted recomends specifically for pets. We have an assi market right down the street so maybe they will carry the reishi mushroom, sabah snake grass, etc. ? I also want to try ground up egg shells and castor oil topically. Any more suggestions or success stories, I would be so grateful to hear! ? Thankyou to Ted, Earth clinic, and all the contributors!! : )
In my heart I know that Sadie will beat this (positive thinking) but if God wants her with him, at least she will have gotten to spend the rest of her time being spoiled, well nourished, and in no pain. Will update but wanted to let everyone know there is hope for this agressive cancer.
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, Diet
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.
I would like earth clinic readers to know that we have fought off our dog Poppy's soft tissue sarcoma. We were paying vet bills and oncology appointments plus some cancer medication but it did not help.
And its thank you to earth clinic I listed what other people were using and Poppy started : essiac tea, bromelain, astragalus, reishi mushrooms and flack seed oil. Still tumor was not giving up. Lastly we tried BLACK SALVE, it took few weeks to see improvement and after 3 months tumor is almost disappeared.
Thank you very much Earth Clinic. You have saved Poppys life.
My beagle was diagnosed with Lymphoma and I immediately went to work. I do not believe that anything is incurable. After extensive and exhaustive research, talking with everyone I could find, etc. , etc. , I changed my beagles diet completely and put her on numerous supplements. Cancer cannot survive in certain environments, so my first goal was making my beagles body a difficult environment for cancer to thrive. Without getting into all the "why's", I immediately stopped all commercial dog foods, all charbohydrates, ALL SUGARS, etc.. I switched to bottled water ONLY. I use a crockpot on SLOW cook (you do not want to cook their food on high heat), and toss in chicken, veal, veggies.... Apples are OK too. NO RICE, NO OATMEAL, NO POTATOES.
She's on Essiac tea (2 x per day), cottage cheese w/flaxseed oil (2 x per day), shark cartlidge, coral calcium, milk thistle, and red clay. I also feed her the crockpot mix 2 times a day. All swelling is gone, she's no longer lathargic or in any pain at all, in fact... She's happier, healthier and stronger than I can ever remember. She even looks like she's 5 years younger. Seriously, wow. Regardless of how it all turns out, I will say that TODAY she is happy, healthy and playful and in the big picture, that's really all that matters. I truly believe in my heart that she's going to be just fine.... I urge everyone to do their research, make the changes, don't give up. Oh, we pray a lot too. :)
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.
Ozone Blood Replacement Therapy
Last year my Irish Wolfhoud contracted lymphatic leukemia. No conventional treatment seemed to help and we were trying everything. Beowulf had been an integral member of our family for 8 years and we could not imagine life without him.
We came across ozone therapy but most of them seemed to have other risks. Then I was introduced to ozone blood replacement therapy. It consists of taking some blood from the body, mixing it with ozone and then reintroducing it back into the body. We researched this and found no side effects but some seemingly remarkable anecdotal evidence of success. The price was reasonable and there seemed to be no risk so we decided to give it a try.
It took several treatments over the course of a month but at the end of the month Beowulf was in complete remission. To this day there is no sign of cancer and Beowulf is happy, health and still the loving and loyal protector of my children.
This ozone therapy appears to be effective against a number of conditions, curing many and reducing the problems of others, including other forms of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, infertility, erectile dysfunction, macular degeneration and others. Reportedly, many diseases are a result of a variety of inflamations. In many cases the ozone therapy eliminates the inflamation (viral, bacterial, environmental, free radicals, etc. ), others it attacks the resultingly affected cells and eliminates them. All this without harming healthy organs or cells. I hear that someone wants to conduct clinical trials using their therapy on HIV patients. This should be rather interesting if it can eradicate HIV/AIDS.
This ozone blood replacement therapy was incredibly effective and saved our Beowulf's life. I would recommend looking into it for other conditions and considering trying it.
