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 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.

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.
Essiac Tea, Supplements, Grinded Apricot Kernel
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!
Sorry about that. The dosage amounts are as follows:
Essiac 4-herb -- 1/2 capsule 2 x day
Astragalus -- 1/2 capsule 2 x day
Beta Glucans -- 1/2 capsule 2 x day
Shark Cartilage -- 1/2 capsule 2 x day
Vit. D tablets (400 IU) -- 1/2 tablet every 2 days
Grinded apricot -- 1/4th of a kernel every 2 days
EC: Thank you so much!
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.
How wonderful that your dog is doing Incredibly better!
You may already know this, IF you want to add information to Wikipedia, you can. Individuals contribute to Wikipedia, that's how it works.
You have no idea what a gift your post is to me and Hobbs, my cat. Thanks and so happy to hear you found a way thru this. I will be using this info and sending you gratitude.
Castor Oil and Turmeric
If your dog has an aggressive cancer like melanoma or has a malignant tumor, avoid turmeric and castor oil mixture.
My male, neutered, senior mini schnauzer has melanoma on his digit. It started small and round, like a wart. I applied castor oil + turmeric and the tumor grew fast BUT, at the time, I didn't make the correlation. I only recalled that now, as I was writing this review. I stopped using this mixture because it was messy and my dog tried to lick it.
When I finally had the money to book the surgery, the vet said the tumor was 40% of his paw and his leg should be amputated. I read many positive posts about applying castor oil mixed with turmeric topically on the tumor, so I decided to try again.
Within only 3 days the tumor grew to a monster size. It is literally WRAPPING around his paw. His footpad is disappearing behind it.
Most people say turmeric and castor oil mixture makes the tumor swell and then one day it bursts open, but those people had dogs who had cysts or other type of cancer or some tumor that they weren't even sure if it was cancer. I continued reading posts on earthclinic and saw a couple posts that this mixture should not be used on malignant tumors. I stopped right away. I tried to add 2 pictures to my post, before and after.
I am hoping to remedy this situation with pycnogenol 100mg, which he started the day after I stopped this mixture. I need the tumor to be a bit smaller to apply the black salve I purchased from altcancer. He is also drinking essiac tea since I stopped this mixture.
I forgot to add: my dog was taking a pill that has oregano oil as the main ingredient. I doubled the dosage within a week. The tumor was changing. It was almost as if it was swollen and losing fluid. The bandage in the morning would be humid and filthy. But you are supposed to take a break, so I stopped for a week, right on the day I started the turmeric and castor oil mixture topically. The mixture reversed the progress accomplished with the oregano oil AND the tumor became much bigger than ever before. He is back on the oregano oil pill since last Sept. 5th, but only one a day.
Ps: I believe the castor oil and turmeric mixture can work for other tumors but unfortunately is a big no for melanoma.
Castor Oil and Turmeric
You might want to look up the dog wormer panacur c (fenbendazole) and how people are using it for cancer.
Castor Oil and Turmeric
Knowledge, research, is key. Mine found that the fenben is so safe it had no LD50, even at 10,000x normal dose. Also I have faith. I don't know what feed your dog is on but perhaps change is needed, can't feed cancer when you're trying your hardest to to kill it.
I look forward to your updates.
Hi Flower's Mom,
What great news, yay! So happy for you. Can you please tell me what ppm of Colloidal Silver you were giving your dog? Also, was it homemade CS or store-bought? Thanks!
Reishi and Dandelion Tea
I am sorry to hear about your cat!
I don't know anything about the Reishi tea, but do think dandelion tea is amazing. But I don't know of any stories of using those two teas for cancer. I have read much about Essiac tea for cancer. Also, turkey tail mushroom show a lot of promise for cancer treatments.
You will find information about Essiac Tea for Cats with cancer on this page. It has dosing information.
If you are not able to get Essiac and want to try the Reishi and Dandelion, yes, you can mix them with water or even with food. I would try 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) of each, twice a day, mixed in water or food.
Keep us posted. I hope he feels better soon!

Baking Soda and Maple Syrup
There are a few maple syrups made with xylitol, be sure yours is not one of those, as xylitol can kill dogs and at a minimum make them very sick.
In any case, it does not sound like a protocol you should follow.
You can use colloidal silver in the drinking water and apply topically with DMSO as Deirdre has described. Dogs can tolerate DMSO orally in very small amounts, but there are no studies or guidelines for that use.
Colloidal Copper and Aspirin
You can make colloidal copper 2 ways, one the same as colloidal silver, or put pure copper wire in glass pot of distiled water and a pinch of citric acid, simmer 6 hours and use a parts per million tester that I bought at home depo. buy pure aspirin at health food store or animal feed store, it has no cemicols in it like the aspirin you buy at the grocery stores. I than took a gallon of distilled water added about an ounce to get about 10 parts per million. than I put it in the dogs dish and he drank it when he was thirsty, abot 2 weeks of doing this and now he plays like a puppy. Best is go to and where I got it from, u tube, Power of colloidal copper, by Tony Pantalleresco, he has the best cures of anyone I have found.
Castor Oil and Turmeric
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.
Offer her two water dishes. One with a bit of salt and one without. She'll take what she needs.
Something else that people don't realize is that dogs need sunshine, just like people. They don't absorb vitamin D the same way but it's how they get it. It's made by the skin and distributed into the hair where it's licked off so some sunshine or D3 supplement along with the salt might also help.
Plus, you can't go wrong with "The Bellyrub of Happiness" - I.e. rubbing castor oil on the belly.
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.
Essiac Tea, Diet
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.
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.
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.
Milk Thistle, Reishi Mushroom, Rooibos Tea
Try doing a parasite kill. Flaxseed and cottage cheese works well but you first have to do a parasite kill, but to do it you have to know what you are doing and I don't know if I can mention the person but I did this under Hulda Clark's direction's. My dog had bone cancer and was given 3 to six month's to live, this was over three years ago and he is still here. Look up mapel syrup and baking soda, sound weird but when you read the article you will find it makes perfect sense. All the luck and blessing in your venture of fight this horrible disease.
In response to Luis from Lynwood California-Skin cancer can be easily cured by applying and rubbing hydrogen peroxide 3-4 times daily with a Q-tip. I know this because I took off a cancerous mole from myself about 1cm in size. It took around 3 weeks of rubbing. Cancer cells cannot live with oxygen and when hydrogen peroxide is applied it stimulates healing because it contains oxygen cells.
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.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Hey Christine! I keep a bowl of water in the floor for my dog's and that's the way I give them the vinegar. I use Bragg's apple cider vinegar. I would say the bowl I use holds about a quart and a half and I started them out with 2 tsp in their water, that way they could get used to the taste and then I increased it to about a tblsp after about a week. I hope this help's. I know some people put it in their food. I haven't tried that yet.
our 9 year old Yorkie was diagnosed with Plasmacytoma, degranulated mast cell tumor, B-Cell Lymphoma, discrete cell tumor. A mass was found on his leg and when they did an xray and ultrasound there is a 3cm tumor between his heart and lung. We have no idea where to start to see if there is anything we can do.
We were told he had 2 weeks to 2 months to live. Our hearts are broken.
Renee, did you try essiac tea? I wouldn't buy at the store, I would buy the authentic one, which can be purchased online. I would contact the makers of black salve - cansema, the real black salve - and ask if giving my dog a tiny bit of black salve internally would help. I gave my dog black salve internally, which was only a rice-size, and the 2 warts he had on his back dissolved.
A woman on the fenben's facebook group for pets mentioned that she used 7% lugol's iodine to heal melanoma on her husband's head. But that is the only report I ever read about it related to cancer.
Castor Oil and Turmeric
I am on the facebook group for fenbendazole for dog cancer. Most people had to put their pets to sleep. I am wondering if they tried it too late or if they didn't follow the instructions given by Tippens.. I saw the posts here on Earthclinic, I am watching them.
I started my dog yesterday on black salve, today the part where I applied the salve was white, so I am excited. He is still drinking essiac tea and taking 100mg of pycnogenol. The oregano oil pill is out of stock, so he isn't taking those for now.
Black salve, properly formulated with no acids, just with bloodroot, sheep sorrel, gangalal, and red clover WORKS!
I have very sensitive skin and scar from everything. Tried this on a patch of the sensitive skin on my inner forearm. No reaction other than discoloration after 24 hour application. Had an abnormal mole the doc said was most likely cancerous. Put the stuff on that and WOW! Immediate reaction. After pain for days, the body pushed out the entire mole and its roots. Biopsy on my arm confirmed clear of cancer after that.
My mastiff was diagnosed with cancer on his elbow 2016. Put some on my dog that had a cancerous tumor on his elbow. Took a lot longer to treat because the bandage would not stay put. The tumor drained and then fell out. He should have died in a year or less. It is now 2020 and he is doing fine. The idiots that claim black salve is a hoax and dangerous are the idiots who are toting the pharmaceutical industry's nonsense. There are bad batches out there that put acid in their mix. Do not buy from them. Research and find a reputable company to get the good stuff.
The bloodroot ruptures the protective sheath around the cancer so the body can recognize it as bad. The body then appropriately attacks the cancer and shoves it out. There is a crater at first. Keep it clean, moist, and covered. Use a comfrey based salve on it. It will fill in, heal, and have little scarring if you follow the directions.

Please keep us posted on your girl's progress!!
Thank you for your story, my cat also diagnosed with squamous cell tumor in his mouth and wasn't expected to last the week. He's doing well, your story really gives me hope!
Reishe mushroom, inisitol IP 6, colloidal silver, as we'll as Essiac tea will heal your kitty. Research on how much to give to him. My friends cat similar situation. He is alive almost two years after vet said he would not last more then two weeks. Good luck.
Ozone Blood Replacement Therapy
Jeffrey, I wish you'd shared where you got the treatment. I can't see anywhere in London doing it for animals. I'd like to try it for my cat.
Ozone Society didn't reply to my query.
Nor a 'compassionate Buddhist Vet of the year'. Incredible how coldhearted some ppl can be.
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.
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.
Since club soda has extra oxygen, would it work on cancer cells? I kill our fire ants with it! Not sure if it contains sugar.
Where do I get all of this stuff?
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.
Essiac Tea, Supplements, Grinded Apricot Kernel
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.
Unfortunately our database does not read fractions and changed yours into funny characters. Could you please re-send the dosage amounts again by typing the measurements like this: 1/2, 1/4, 1/8. Thank you!

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.

Flax oil becomes rancid quickly. Buy in capsules and open as needed.
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.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Don't forget to add a pinch baking soda (food grade) to the water to prevent the acid (ACV) from stripping the enamel off the teeth.
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.
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.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I have been putting apple cider vinegar into my cat's canned food because two had developed urinary tract infections which would have ended their lives if it weren't for veterinarians. But, when I picked up Oliver from the vet school the vet told me not to be surprised if he relapses. That is when I started putting the ACV in all my cats' food, and so far no more urinary tract infections, yay!
In the meantime, I ran across an article on the web about people in China who work in or near vinegar factories having fewer incidents of cancer. In searching for more information about that I came across this".
This is the National Institutes of Health website and a scientific article entitled "Effect of esophageal cancer- and stomach cancer-preventing vinegar (or OSCPV) on N-nitrosoproline formation in the human body."
This article is not easy for me, a jazz singer, to read, but I love that it is presented on a government website for an agency of the Public Health Service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, especially after have a doctor and then a nutritionist tell me that alternative remedies are useless! I beg to differ!
Here is the conclusion of the article: "OSCPV is an effective agent that can block the synthesis of NNC. It is effective in blocking the synthesis of NPRO, which can induce cancer in the human body, making this agent capable of preventing human cancers in an effective manner."
