7 Natural Remedies for Cancer in Dogs and Cats

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.

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.

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.

I need to share what happend to my black lab, Teddy Bear. Maybe some of you reading this will be able to help your pet recover. Teddy developed a knot on his rectum around age 9. I thought it was just a hemmoroid but after several weeks it began bleeding. The area around the opening took on a bruised appearance with yellow, orange, reddish, and black colors and he began to act like he didn't feel well. I took him to the vet and was told it was cancer. He had surgery but withing a few months it was back. I took him in for more surgery. They removed several thumb size tumors and stiched him up. I was told that they didn't think they got it all. At that point I began praying for his recovery. The next day I received a cassete tape in the mail about a product called Pycnogenol. I listened to the tape on the way into work the next day. The narriator talked about all these folks that had cancer and other serious diseases taking this stuff and recovering completely. I had bought some of this stuff for myself about a year earlier in the hopes it would help me with chronic fatigue. It did nothing so I put it in the medicine cabinet and forgot about it. Anyway I heard the narriator tell that the most important thing about taking Pycnogenol is to take it 1 mg per pound of body weight. Well I figured Teddy weighed 90 pounds so I did the math and found that 5 capsules were needed to get close to his weight. I sprinkled the contents of the capsules on his food. Honestly I could not believe what happened next. Within one day of consuming just the first dose his rear end began to turn pink. He began to act like he felt a bit better. I gave him a second dose the next day and again daily from then on. By the time a week had passed you wouldn't believe it was the same dog. He was running and barking like he was a pup again. I kept him on the product until the bottle ran out. Withing a couple of weeks he began getting another spot on his butt so I put him back on the product. The knot went away. He stayed on Pyconogenol the rest of his life but he lived to the ripe old age of 17. I had to put him to sleep because his hips gave out, he couldn't walk, and he couldn't control his bladder & bowels any longer. I hated to do it but I had tried all that I knew to do. I stiil miss him....... But he lived 8 years longer than he would have if I hadn't had my prayer answered. Thank you Lord.

Let me say that there are differences between Pycnogenol and pine bark extract. Pine bark extract is a little bit cheaper than Pycnogenol but did not produce any effects for Teddy. I did not notice any difference between Pycnogenol brands.

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.

Skin Cancer
Posted by Michael (Chicago, Il. Usa) on 11/28/2011

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.

Budwig Diet

In February this year 2011, I had to bring my 8 year old Great Dane to UC Davis emergency and they found a huge mass on his spleen. They did surgery on him and removed his spleen and he was diagnosed with hemangioscarcoma and told me without chemo he would have 19 days to 2 months to live and with chemo 5 to 6 months.

At the time I was in a state of shock and agreed to do chemo but after doing some research and seeing what my poor dog had to go through (5 people holding him down and him crying howling 30 minutes straight!! ) Anyway, long story short, I decided to hell with chemo, I'd rather see him live a quality life for a shorter time than live longer in misery.

When researching the internet I came across "the Budwig Protocol". Basically what it is is Organic Flaxseed Oil (the kind you find in a bottle @ Whole Food's refridgerated section) and Organic Cottage Cheese Lowfat.

I hope you will check in to this because all I know is that it's been 8 months now since my Great Dane was given max 2 months to live and he is doing GREAT!!

Twice a day I give it to him and I will continue doing so all his life. In addition to the cottage cheese and flaxseedoil, I feed him raw meat (chicken turkey necks tripe etc) supplements like Glutamine, Arginine (spelling?), milkthistle, garlic, multi vitamin). What I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT feed him is dryfood, carbohydrates, rice, processed food etc.

I think the reason for his Hemangiosarcoma has to do with genetics and the toxic environment we live in but I blame in particular all the vaccinations that I unfortunately gave him the first years of his life. If I knew then what I know now.. but I didn't.

I have come across a Great Dane breeder who has a litter of puppies that are 4th generation with no vaccinations! That is the way to go! In the meantime I am loving and appreciating every single day that I get to enjoy with my wonderful companion!

Good Luck! Oh by the way, I have started the Budwig Protocol myself to hopefully prevent any future cancer or other desease.

Yes please do your own research! You will not regret it!

Low Dose Naltrexone
Posted by Rxbach (Youngstown, Ny) on 01/16/2011

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.

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.

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.


Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Gerald (Columbus, Ohio) on 06/12/2010

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.


Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Teresa (London, Uk) on 02/06/2010

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!


Multiple Remedies

2 months ago, we sent our 11.5 year old cat to the vet as he was losing weight, not eating and looking very ill. The vet diagnosed him through x-rays and blood tests (low blood count - putting him under GA twice) as having a fast growing cancer that was stopping him from breathing properly. As this was spreading fast, we were advised to put him down. There was no way I was going to do this without a fight so my wife (who is a GP) and I spent 2 nights researching online and came up with the following treatment:

1) Morning: 1 ml of flaxseed oil, 2 ml of Essiac tea, 4 - 5 ml of a well known brand of chicken essence; 1 pippete (c. 2 ml) of liquid multivitamin (for babies); 1 tablet of transfer factor (we take the powder out of the capsule, put it onto a small spoon drop it into his mouth.
2) Noon: 1 ml of flaxseed oil, 2 ml Essiac tea and 4-5 ml chicken essence
3) 5:30/6pm: As for breakfast PLUS 1 x 5mg prednicare tablet to stimulate his appetite
4) 10:30/11pm: as per his Noon time treatment

We also gave him steamed (I avoid microwaving!) cod or coley fish (which we buy frozen from the supermarkets - so very convenient).

Within a week, he was much better and eating really well. He has put on weight; his coat is glossy; and is pretty sprightly for his age - well enough to get into a fight with our neighbourhood rogue cat which ended with him getting a bitten - and now infected ear which I am treating with tea tree oil.

By the way, we brought him to the vet a fortnight after starting his treatment and the vet sure was shocked by his recovery.

From next week, I intend to reduce his treatment to 3 times a day i.e. leaving out the noon feed.

If your cat (or dog?) is in a similar situation as my cat was, try out the above. Naturally, you may have to up the dose if it is a dog.

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!

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.


Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Ingrid (Geneva, Ohio) on 06/20/2009

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.


Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Ingrid (Geneva, OH) on 04/22/2009

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.

Essiac Tea

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. :)

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!

My 'peaches & cream' cat, Jasper, has just been diagnosed with skin cancer on one of his eye lids. I've begun painting the area with turmeric & aloe (from my garden) with a make-up brush. I am adding turmeric to his food (1/4 tsp. 2x a day). Will let you know how this goes, but so far, so good!

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.
