7 Natural Remedies for Cancer in Dogs and Cats

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 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?

Black salve eats away the skin and leaves a crater.

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.

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.

Essiac Tea
Posted by Sundra (Ellijay, Georgia) on 07/09/2021

I need to know what brand and how much? My dog has lymphoma and needs to take this tea. It's in his liver and spleen now.

Essiac Tea, Supplements, Grinded Apricot Kernel
Posted by Janice (NY) on 08/29/2022

I was wondering if this was a success for her cat. I have a 12 year old cat with a tumor or growth on the side of his head. I think it started with his tooth. One vet said abscess and another vet said a tumor. It is really big and hard. Right now he is on clavamox antibiotics. I'm thinking of using the Essiac to start with and then adding some of the other stuff Maria used. Thanks

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!

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!

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.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Hi Karen.
We have a Schipperke mix she's 7 years old and approximately 40lbs.
A couple of days ago an ex-ray at the vet seems to show cancer in the hind left leg area. We should have a second opinion from ex-ray specialist Monday 1/5/18.
We have used ACV in the past and are willing to use it to help Bindi.
If you have any suggestions on how much and how often it would be greatly appreciated.

Christine and Steven

EC: Hi Christine, 

Unfortunately, Karen's post is from 2007 and she is unlikely to see it, sorry! Perhaps one of our other wonderful pet lovers can advise.
