Hello, I just got the results from my vet of the x-ray she sent to a lab. It confirms that my little Honey Bee, part Chihuahua, that the lump on her hind leg is a mast cell tumor. I have some Essiac capsules that say two twice a day (for humans) for daily use. Then it adds, three, three times a day for "other situations". I'd like to start her right away. Does anyone know how to dose a sixteen pound dog with the capsules? Thank you!
p.s. Has anyone had a mast cell removed surgically, and how did that go?
Hello, I new to this site. I saw your post and I know this was back in 2014. I would like know how Tahoe doing. We have a 3 years older golden that also has osteosarcoma. The option was to amputate his back right leg. I just started him on this tea before even finding out this site because my husband was taking this tea for his prostate cancer. I hope you can give me more updates on your dog. Dr told us Riley our golden might have 2-6months.
Hello, I just read your post and I know it was back in 2009. Our golden retriever was diagnosed with osteosarcoma couple months ago on his back right leg. The X-rays did not show that it's spread to his lungs. The dr advice to amputate his leg. We still undecided. I found this website and it gives me hope. I been giving him the tea because my husband is taking it for a month now for his prostate cancer. I'm thinking I should give it to Riley also. He's been taking it for almost a week. I found this website and read a couple of the post and it give me hope. I would like more updates on your dogs. Thank you
To receive all the benefits of Essiac tea, it must be left to steep 12 hours in a covered pot.
Can you update on your doggie. We have a 10 year old Golden Retriever with lots of enlarged lymph nodes. We are waiting on the results to find out if it is lymphoma. I got the tea in the mail today. I have brewed it and am letting it steep. Would it be ok to give him a bit after steeping for only 8 hours or so? I would like to get a dose in before bed. Did you give it on empty stomach? Did your dogs have any problems with loose stools? He has a sensitive stomach.
Can you tell me how this worked for your dog. Thank you.
I know this is years later but it may help someone else. Add the Essiac to some chicken or other meat bone broth. Make your own as it's much better. Save your bones after a meal in the freezer. When you have enough, put them in a pot and cover them with water and simmer up to 12 hours - the longer, the better, but you can also shorten this time or put them in a crock pot all day or even a pressure cooker for 2 hours, such as an Instant Pot. Note: A simmer is not a boil but the smallest amount of heat with a few bubbles here and there. Best to do it during the day for safety. Strain out the bones and keep broth in the fridge. I always feed my dog broth with his meat/veg/fats.
You want to avoid sugar in the diet as that is what feeds cancer. Sugar is also carbs. Check out the Keto pet diet online. I am using that too. My dog (lymphoma) has no problem taking the Essiac in broth. I just started this today.
I think the vaccines caused this as well as terrible ear infections/allergies as he was a rescue, picked up by a Humane Society and the incompetent vet gave him a vaccine when he was starved and very sick. He did not have these issues prior, according to the medical notes. Vaccines should ONLY be given to healthy animals but most vets do it anyway. Lots of info on this online by holistic vets. For immunity to diseases, do a blood titer instead. Dogs usually have full lifetime immunity from their first set of vaccines, but it's a giant money-maker, so that's why it's pushed every year. Criminal, I know. You don't realize how damaging vaccines can be until something like this happens and you start doing the research and there is a ton of research out there, but it's buried. Don't believe what the media says, they are funded by the drug companies and have a financial interest.
Dosing: I found this info on an Essiac site. Best wishes for your pet.
Essiac Tea Dosing for Pets
Ideally, Essiac will be given once daily on an empty stomach. First thing in the morning or before bed are good times to give Essiac to your pet. If you need to mix it with food to get your pet to take it, use the minimum amount needed to get your pet to take Essiac.
How Much Essiac Tea for Cats?
1 teaspoon (5 ml) of essiac tea is the dose for cats. It should be mixed with 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of water and given with a syringe.
¼ teaspoon of powder or 1 capsule of Essiac can be used if a cat will not take the tea.
Be sure to have plenty of fresh pure water available at all times.
How Much Essiac Tea for Dogs?
Large Dogs – 1 ounce Essiac tea with 2 ounces of water.
Medium Dogs - ½ ounce Essiac tea with 1 ounce of water.
Small Dogs – 1 ½ teaspoons Essiac tea with 1 Tablespoon of water.
In speaking with my naturopath about the uses of Essiac, he mentioned that he always saves the boiled herbs to use as a poultice for all sorts of applications, I.e tumors, cysts, wounds, abscesses, etc. He purchases the herbs in bulk and after boiling and straining them to make the tea, he puts the moist herbal mixture into a glass jar and stores it in the frig. If he makes up another batch, he dries the first batch and keeps it to re-hydrate to use later and puts the fresh batch in the frig, rotating the batches. The herbs still have a lot of beneficial ingredients, enabling them to be used more than once. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Hello Flower's Mom,
A few days ago, I decided to visit the vet coz I was kinda worried of the opening below her chin near the throat/neck and an inflamed part protruding where pus keeps coming out and the odor that seems to be getting worse. Vet gave some antibiotics and antiseptic and told me to apply honey to the open wound and not to cover it. As of today, the pus lessened and the odor was gone.
I'm still giving her Essiac twice a day and Seabuckthorn Berry Oil to boost her immune system. Earlier today, noticed that a portion of the tumor did burst. Keep you guys posted. Hoping, praying and keeping my fingers crossed that Essiac will do miracles on her coz my options seems to be running out. Hope this site would allow or post some photos for reference.
EC: Yes, you can upload photos to your post any time! Just click on the add images link.
I administered Essiac for one of my older dogs who had developed a few small tumors. I gave her the tea orally every day as well as rubbing the tea bags over the lumps before putting them into the compost. The tumors reacted to the treatment by first getting bigger, and then by opening up and draining before they really showed any signs of shrinking or drying up. During the time when they were draining, etc. I placed some gauze or a bandage over them to keep her from licking or irritating them, but all in all, they really did not seem to bother her, so she pretty much left them alone. All during this time, her demeanor, appetite and energy levels did not change. I would not give her any antibiotics as the tea seems to me to be working, but I would give her something for immune support. Also, I always pray over my babies, laying my body over theirs, sharing your heart, life and light energy to her for added strength. Bless you and let us know how she is doing.
I have a 13 yr old chow who has an oral tumor the size of a peanut when I first noticed it last november 2017, tried bringing it to the vet but explained that surgery was a risk coz of my dog's age and chemo was definitely out of the question for I'm aware of its side effects and thus no guarantee. Tried different kinds of natural treatment along the way but to no avail.
As of this day, tumor is about the size of a baseball. A few weeks ago, I happen to stumble on your website and found out about Essiac Tea, tried giving it at 20ml twice daily for about a week now and I noticed that underneath the chin there was swelling and that started to open and light reddish fluid along with some pus seeping out. Intense odor coming from her mouth and the pus I guess.
Good thing coz her appetite, energy and all seems normal like the usual. As for the tumor, still too early to tell the difference if its shrinking. Any advice, if this is a normal effect of Essiac on tumors? and is there a need to give antibiotics for the pus or will Essiac do the trick?
My 15 year old cat has lymphoma at his throat. The first lump appeared overnight and grew to 4 cm in 1 week. Started him on steroids which helped regain his appetite and shrunk it to 2cm. Stopped working after 2 weeks and two lumps appeared after that. They are huge about 4cm each. Started him on Essiac tea 12 days ago along with flaxseed oil, fish oil, essence of chicken, chicken broth and colostrum milk. He is very very weak and we took him for acupuncture 2 days ago. Today, one of the lumps opened and leaked out smelly light pink liquid. We don't know if that's a good sign or not. What happens now?
Essiac Tea for Cats
Janice, sorry to hear your cat's diagnosis. I never had much reply about the spots in my cats lungs his abdominal tumor was the main concern. I got a reply from Art S. who had success with the Essiac tea but added chapparel and echinacea tea to the mixture and it cured his cat.
His reply should be in this thread as well as how he mixed it. Humans with lung cancer have had results with flax hull lignans in yogurt, cottage cheese, etc. Don't know if it works for animals.

Margie/Austin Tx: Did you ever get an answer about administering the tea for lung cancer? My girl has been diagnosed with lung cancer. I've been giving her Petwellbeing Life Gold (Chaga-mushroom, blessed thistle, red clover, burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm bar and Turkish rhubard root). She has deteriorated since I started using supplements, but wondering if this is side effects of detoxing. Thanks
Essiac Tea for Cats
Hi Stacey: My cat has just been diagnosed with lung cancer (large mass + some small ones + enlarged lymph gland neck). How did you do with the essiac? I'm ordering a tincture of that and some of the Hoxsey formula herbs. I hope your kitter did well. The vet prescribed prednisolone but I don't want to give that to her. My fear is, if she's gone too far and may need the steroid + essiac etc. What were you prescribed? Many thanks
Essiac Tea for Cats
Thank you for your comment, Stacey Hohn. I am looking for a homeopathist now also good to hear that your cat recovered. My cat has a soft cell sarcoma in inaugral region that was removed but I think it back again . There is a lump of fluid that builds up. I am using Essiac tea and Turmeric, raw food wheat grass, pro biotics. So far Essiac has been 2 ml twice a day but I think I can increase now ..Thanks all for your comments
Essiac Tea for Cats
My cat had a CT scan today. They found masses in both his sinuses. He is 12.5 years old. I have had him for 3.5 yrs and he was a big 16 lb guy who has gone down to 13 lbs recently. Last week it seemed like he had a 'cold'. On day 5 he wouldn't eat (always a fabulous eater). I took him to the vets. Bloodwork and xrays showed nothing. With the CT scan they did a biopsy will have results in a few days. 90% chance it is cancer. I will not just let him go. I have been feeding him (he is easy to accept) for days now. With sinuses this way he just won't eat or drink. I am willing to try Essiac Tea. Any recommendations or suggestions please help! I will have him home tomorrow.
Hey, Todd! I have a 4.5 lb chihuahua named rocky with Thyroid cancer. His tumor is also the size of a golf ball and the bet doesn't give me much home. I have the Essaic tea and some other homeopathic remedies. Was there anything else you did with your dog for these results? I have the actual liquid tea, as my dog is very picky and too small for the capsules. I could break them in his food, but I know he would turn his nose up at the smell. I'm going to syringe it into his mouth. Thank you!
Essiac Tea for Cats
That is great that the Essiac tea worked for your cat's lung tumors, usually that is a fatal diagnosis.I was wondering if you could provide the specifics of how you administered the treatment and where you purchased the tea.Cats (as you probably know) are not easy to treat.Also, did you take your cat to a homeopath that mainly treated humans and what sort of remedies were they using?
Essiac Tea for Cats
Hi I used essiac tea for my cat who had 3 tumours in his lung last year, all cleared within 3 months. We also took him to a homeopath who gave him remedies, and we changed his pet food to decent food, as I was not aware of all the crap in most pet foods ect. Good luck xox

Essiac Tea for Cats
Unfortuneatly my cats cancer progressed to the point that it could not be reversed. During all the research to help him, your post accidentally helped me to give him a better quality of life for his last 2 weeks. I went looking for some chapparal tea which was hard to find, apparently because there was a scare over its affect on the liver so I could only find it at an herb shop.It has a long history of treating cancers (imagine that! )Talking to the girl in the herb shop she told me about CBD oil for animals or people that have terminal illnesses or pain. My kitty got this 2X a day for a couple weeks before we had to put him to sleep, and I think he was not in pain while he got this.Glad that your cat recovered, and you may have discovered the right combination with the tea. There is some speculation that there were things that were added to the original Essiac formula that people did not know about. Thanks so much for your replies and help.
Essiac Tea for Cats
I'm so sorry this response is late. I get my herbs from Starwest Botanicals
I made a quart of the Essiac per the instructions included then made a cup each of the Chapparal and the Red Clover and Echanecea, as you would a normal cup of tea - a tsp of herbs to the cup of water. Let it steep for 10 minutes and added all of it to the Essiac. So each eye dropper got a mix of all the herbs. I mixed it in beef broth or Turkey Baby Food so he'd eat it. He also has a huge tumor on his neck which I shaved and massaged pure, cold-pressed Castor oil on it twice a day(about a quarter tsp). I judged his progress by the size and shape of the tumor. It hardened and grew a little for the first 2 weeks, started to soften the third week and started to shrink during the fourth week. After the 5th week it was gone and he was fine. Just to make sure I gave him some maintenance tea 3 times a week(1 eyedropper) for anoother week and that was it. I hope this helps.
Turmeric powder is great for healing the infection.
I am mixing the essiac tea, about 2 tsp (depending on weight), with home made broth, 1-2 tablespoons. My 35#, 9 year old standard long haired dachshund has hermangiosarcoma. I recently added, just 2 days, Essiac to his already complicated protocol. I'm very hopeful about the Essiac, as I have read and heard so many exciting testimonials about this amazing tea. We discovered a tumor on his back on February 3.

I'll update here, but would really like to hear about your dog.
Essiac Tea for Cats
Hi Art, thanks for your response, could you tell me where you purchased your products and in what amounts you mixed them and how you prepared your mixture.Which Essiac did you buy? I checked the product I am using (Floressence) It does not have chapparall or echinacea in it.It does have some other herbs not in the original formula.Have been using it for a couple of days now and my cat has started eating again, but seems to be drinking little water.Also, how long did you do the treatment 3X a day.
Essiac Tea for Cats
My 12 yr old male who had lymphoma got 2 eyedroppers 3 times a day. But I also added Echinacea, Chapparall and Red Clover teas to the Essiac mix. It cured him.
Essiac Tea for Cats
What dosage of Essiac tea have people been successful with? The website essiacfacts.com says most people had more success with higher than the recommended dosage for pets.I have seen other post here which say you should stick to the recommended.The dosage for adults on the bottle of Floressence says 2ounces of water to 2 ounces of tea. For my cat's weight, the website says it should be a little under a teaspoon of this.
Anyone know something definitive on the dosage? Thx
Human or animal that has cancer, buying Essiac tea with the included sheep sorrel roots is absolutely necessary.
>>> "Dear Dr. Stock; I am worried about not receiving any reports on the tests. I thought about the way the lab had been preparing the material for the tests, and why they were not getting better results, so I read over their preparation and found that they were only using the leaves and stems, leaving out the roots, which are very essential in the 'Essiac' for treatments." ~ Nurse Rene Caissee, Essiac tea founder<<<<
Hi! I am loving this website and am so appreciative of the helpful information it contains! Thank you!!
In December of 2016 my almost 12 year old male terrier mix was diagnosed with a mass in his "cheek"... a terrible place to try and treat because he won't let me near it! He had the mass removed the week of Christmas and I opted to not have it biopsied because I knew I would not subject him to chemo/radiation, and the cost was already very high for the surgery. Prior to the surgery, I started making his food and treating him with turmeric, coconut oil, medicinal mushroom powder, food grade H2O2, and everything I could think of to try and boost his immune system and possibly shrink the mass. After the surgery, I continued with the same routine. At his last check up, the mass had already started to come back... so I started Rascal on essaic tea. This was about a month ago. I thought at first that the tumor was drying up, but then it seemed to grow larger and he had a very stinky clump of fur/dried blood... that formed and drove him crazy. Every time I tried to get near him to try and treat it, he would run. Fortunately, it fell off (FINALLY) the beginning of this week, and underneath is a VERY bright red spot that seems to be "swelling". Should I continue with the essaic? I am trying to get him to sleep on the side where I can see it so that I can try and drop some castor oil on it... I have also ordered Artemisinin and K9 Immunity which will be here tomorrow! Please help! He has a GREAT appetite, his eyes are bright and he doesn't appear to be in pain, although he is licking his paws incessantly... my funds are limited, but I am desperate to try and get rid of the cancer. We just moved back to Nashville 6 months ago and lost our sweet female dog 10 days after we got here... we were devastated. The thought of losing another beloved pet makes me so sad.
I am in Australia and my Mum just bought the herbs in the pack and I brew it up as per instructions.
I have been giving Maloo 5ml with 5ml of water twice a day by syringe.
It really has seemed to do wonders for him. Been eating, back to meowing and waking me up for food. Still sneezing however less blood. It got worse for a few days when first started the tea however read that is to be expected.
Wishing you and your kitty all the best. Prayers to you also.
Can you explain more about the dosage please. Do you use the herbs and make your own tea? Sorry, I'm still trying to get my head around all of this. My 6kg cat has just been diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma on his nose. Thank you
Sandra, I'm so very for your loss
My cat has just been diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma on his nose. It looks really bad. They are busy doing some swabs etc.
In the meantime I want to get him on some Essiac. Which is the best form? The tea, capsules for pets or the liquid? And can someone break down exactly how I must administrate it, I'm lost. Thank you so much. My thoughts are with you all and your pets
Sadly, we had to out our little cat to sleep. The tumour had started to spread within days and she was emaciated very quickly. I had noticed a slight reduction but it then just seemed to get too large. I wondered whether the tea would work much better on tumours in the stomach/intestines, which appears to be the most common site for lymphoma in cats. Ellie's was in her neck. We miss her lots, its awful x
Hello, I hope it continues to go well for your kitty. All the best for many healthy years together. X
Sorry that I write here as a reply, but just didn't find where can I write a post. So my 15 years old cat has a tumor in her abdomen. Half of it is fill with liquid, half with tissue. I ordered Essiac for her. But I'm worried if the tumor explodes inside what will happen? Ad ill it even work? The vet suspects it's a fibrosarcoma. Need some advice. Please help.
Can I ask what brand of essiac tea you used? I'm having hard time finding one. Thank you
I am so so sorry. No words can easy the pain. I have been there too many times. I feel for you.
I know it's hard to hear (as I was the same) it is not your fault. We as humans can not possibly know everything and it is so hard with a fur babies. Especially cats they are super at hiding illnesses and it's too late. Had it twice.
Hoping not a third.
Love to you and cyper hugs
Hi. Our 14 year old cat has been diagnosed with a High grade Lymphoma on her neck. It is (was) Huge. She was diagnosed 4 weeks ago and has had a couple of rough years with lots of immune system problems which we have been managing with Prednisolone only. I bought some 4 herb Essiac Tea last week and she has been taking it with food. I keep her on chicken or fish with occasional cat foods. She is obviously hungry because the Prednisolone ups the appetite. She has been a little up and down and yesterday I kept a close eye on her because she wasn't eating. Later on however she ate 3 small meals. This morning she was up and ready for breakfast and has had 2 small meals since. Her behaviour was brighter. I had checked the lump yesterday and it was hard and so massive in her neck. I can feel some very small soft nodules in other parts of her neck too. However this morning this tumor is not as big (I think I'm going mad!! ). I can still feel other small lumps but she is so much brighter today. I don't know what's going on but I do have little hope for her but I will keep going and update.
I am devastated to report, I had to put my cat to sleep today. I feel so lost. I did not get the Essiac in time to give it to him..he slid downhill SO FAST. The last couple of nights, his eye was closing shut and his nose was so obstructed, he could barely breathe. I hate myself that I didn't buy the tea sooner..I don't know, maybe it wouldn't have worked..his cancer was very aggressive. I am absolutely devastated.
Thank you for reply.
I am desperate. The bad luck has hit this family for too long. A death of a family member every year from 08-2014. In 2014 I lost my soul kitty to intestinal adenocarcinoma. She was only 8yrs old. Then my cat at Mum's house the same year to lymphoma.
My pets are my kids too. I feel so awful and struggling with all this. My husband was involved in a serious truck accident early Nov. My mum (lives 9 hours away in different state has had op for cervical cancer) and we are trying to move house. My 5yr old daughter and I are distraught.
I am determined to kill this cancer and have him around for much longer.
He just seems so sad and getting skinner. Not eating much at all. Will lick up broth or gravy.
Thank you again.
My cat has a nasal tumor, too..only his is fibrosarcoma--they found it through a biopsy because the tumor now made a lump on his head. They biopsied the lump. My poor guy has the same symptoms as yours. Sneezing blood..nosebleeds..when the nosebleeds happen, I wet a compress and hold it on his nose (it's only on one side so far).
He does these reverse sneezes that sound like he's choking.
He also has watery eye on that side, and a third eyelid. It's so awful watching them struggle like this.
I ordered the Essiac for Pets capsules. I'm also trying turmeric in his food..I bought 700mg capsules. I break them up and give him 1/4th twice a day.
My vet(s) also gave me prescriptions for amoxicillin..this really helps cut down on the bleeding. It kills opportunistic infections. I now have onsiar--it's an anti-inflammatory and pain med. For his eye, I use Genteel drops you can get at CVS or Walgreens. And for his nose, try "Little Remedies"..it's a saline wash for kids.
I also ordered fish oil supplements to try.
When I get the ESSIAC I'll let you know if it seems to be working. Pls keep us posted about your little guy.
(Mpls., Mn) on 12/08/2016
I do not have experience with your problem, but I hear your plea for help. Things you can do:
Offer stinky food like canned tuna to entice him to take a bite of food. Keep him hydrated - this might mean fluids under the skin; being well hydrated may make him feel more comfortable. Continue the tea - consider dosing 4x day. Consider adding turmeric and vitamin C to his food if he will eat it - just use 1 capsule of each and mix well into the canned soft food. Consider the power of prayer and the laying on of hands to heal; hold him and comfort him and visualize Maloo sitting on a fine mesh net that passes through him and as it passes through it gathers up the bad cancer cells that cannot pass through the net. Imagine using the net to gather up the bad cancer cells in his body and head and pulling them out of his body and sending them in a tied up bag right into the sun. Consider holding him and comforting him and sending him all of the healing energy you have to help him fight. Consider dosing the Bach Flower Remedy 'Rescue Remedy' - dose for him with a little water as it has alcohol, and straight dose for you to help you both feel peace in this stressful time.
I posted in here a couple of weeks back and have got no replies. I am desperate for some help and answers. Maloo my 8/9yr old cat was diagnosed with lymphoma. Not too sure which type. He was sneezing and had blood coming out his nose. Vet put it down to uri as he had one last year. He has also got fiv. Anyway after antibiotics which cleared the blood and sneezing for a week or two it came back. So back to vet and $1,600 later after nasal exploration and biopsy sent off I get a phone call to say it's lymphoma. I refused chemo. I have been reading all the great results of Essiac. So I started him on it. 5ml with 5ml water twice a day. He had a fair bit of blood come out first two days. Still sneezing and some mucus snot. Saturday just gone he came out with blood all over his nose. He started to eat after taking him off antibiotics which caused him to not want to eat. Put some weight back on. However last few days he has been so lifeless, lost weight again, fur looks dull and his third eyelids are coming out more and won't really eat.
Help!!!! Please what can I do? Continue the tea? Tomorrow will be his 3rd week on it. I want my baby boy to be around for many more years. Please
My beloved cat has nasal cancer too, although his is fibrosarcoma (as detected by a biopsy). I just ordered a 3 mo supply of ESSIAC for pets, from Canada, but now I am reading it doesn't have sheep sorrel ROOT, only the leaves. I don't know how essential the root is. But anyway, you can get the Essiac for Pets capsules on amazon. There are also quite a few suppliers of the herbs, so you can make the tea yourself. I also ordered organic tumeric..I am gonna try putting that in my cat's food, too. I figure, he will probably die soon as nasal cancer is horrible, so I might as well try homeopathic methods that have worked for others.
I was wondering if there was any updates on this tea? I am in Australia. I just found out my 9yr old cat Maloo has lymphoma. At first it was diagnosed as URI and then he started to sneeze blood. After antibiotics he cleared for 2 weeks then it came back. He had a biopsy and the devastating news came yesterday. I did not hear exactly what type however I am guessing nasal lymphoma. He has FIV and was offered chemo but do NOT want to do that to him.
I am not ready to let him go. I have lost two cats one aged 6 to diabetes and one (my soul kitty) aged 8 to intestinal adenocarcinoma. I am angry and upset. I really would love for this tea to work. However have no information on it or dosage. I have been looking all day on net. My head is spinning.
Where can I buy the "real" 4 herb essiac tea and know it is the real original essiac formula??? Thank you so much. Cindy
For Denise from Georgia. I hope that your dog is still with us. I read your post regarding the lymphoma and you had lots of improvement, which is great. It gives me a lot of hope. My golden retriever who is 9 was diagnosed at the 1st of September 2016 with lymphoma. I have been giving her Essiac tea and she is on intervenous chemo and prednisone. Please share how your dog is. Thanks. Denise
Hi Cristina, how is your kitty now? Any successes you can share? I just bought the same 2 products for my cat with tumours on his liver.
My 15 pounds dog was diagnosed with nasal carcinoma/adenocarcinoma. He start taking 1 teaspoon of Essiac tea 2 x a day plus artemisinin 100 mg 2 a day 10 day ago and he was doing fine.. At some point he got upset stomach and didn't eat yesterday at all. Today start eating but refuse to take Essiac with yogurt in the morning. I will try again in one hour and reduce a dosage, but I think he needs 1 teaspoon 2 times a day. This is really has to be on the empty stomach or there is maybe Essiac in capsules as good as a tea? I am worried. My Teddy means a world to me. Please let me know if you have any information. Than you!
Dr. Becks Appetite flakes, you can get them on amazon. They worked great on my 13 + year old lab. I have some Essiacs tea for my 13 year old on the way and I really hope it helps.
Try those Dr. Becks bites worked 100 percent for my lab.
Hi, we used essiac tea for out cat with great results ...he was a 6 kg cat and gave him 5ml mixed with 5ml water

Thanks for your comments, Suseeq. The wait and see a bit scenario feels right, given that the external masses are seemingly dissolving, with the much touted chicken fat substance emerging from an opening in the middle of the lower mass. He is still eating well and surprisingly mobile, but limping on it when he first gets up in particular. We are trying to discern whether the tenderness is from the superficial wound changes or from the lytic changes in the bone. So hard to tell. But he continually leads with the 'bad' leg going up the stairs...
Hanging in here in Muskoka for the moment.
My 11 year old Boxer mix has been coughing for almost two months. X-rays show a "mass" on her right lung, most likely "primary pulmonary neoplasia". Did anyone had any experience using the Essiac Tea on these types of lung tumors? I would appreciate any feedback!
I have just ordered essiac together with tru-pine for pets from http://www.essiacproducts.com/essiacforpets -- my cat Pucca, who is 12, have been diagnosed with Lymphoma (to her small intestine) last week.
if you already administered essiac and/or tru-pine capsules to your pet, did you noticed any side effects, for example diarrhea or vomiting?
Hmm. A hard discision. Go with your gut consider how long you have been treating it. If you have just started I would give it longer, have you seen much improvement? Look at all aspects before you make your mind.
Dear Jinx the cat carer,
We are in the throes of trying to treat a hind leg tumor on our 12 year Louis, as he has just been diagnosed with so much damage in the bone where the tumor is emerging at the hock joint, that the leg is considered unviable, and likely to break. In which case it would apparently be unable to knit and heal.
So, we have been advised to amputate the entire hind leg up to and including the hip joint.
He is presently on a very small amount of pain killer every 12 hours, and we are giving him essiac tea 5ml 2X a day on an empty stomach, as well as 5 -7 drops of Feline Gold fro Pet Wellbeing, 2X a day with food.
So far the protrusions which are considered a tumor and a secondary inflammatory response to the bone cancer, are intermittently shrinking and expanding. The lower one is getting open and oozing. We administer it daily with a warm salt water soak for 10 minutes and apply a smear of emu oil combined with essiac dregs, olive leaf extract, turmeric and colloidal silver.
WE also give him shark liver oil and co Q 10 in a syringe orally once a day.
this boy has been struggling with hyperthyroidism for almost two years. He is on 10 drops of thyroid support from Pet wellbeing 2X a day which helps a lot.
Anyway, we are on the horns of a dilemma. Do we amputate - scheduled for one week from now - or do we keep treating him at home and wait and see ...
What a huge decision...
We believe he has had this condition for a long time, but didn't let on there was anything wrong until he started licking the spot where the swelling suddenly emerged, and by removing the haired from licking so much we were able to see that there was something very wrong. That was two weeks ago.
Does anyone have any experience with the wait and see or amputate right away decision?
The Xray did not reveal any sign of spreading ( if this is even cancer- they're not totally sure as it could be fungal or even bacterial) but it did show that the lower half of the tibia bone looks lytic - compromised and weak and so very vulnerable.
Thank you for any comments you may be able to offer

Hello. My dog has the same bladder disease. He was operated on about 6 months ago to remove the tumor. Since then the cancer has returned. I have been reading alot about essiac tea for shrinking tumors and the one I have ordered is called bcct from a company called Only Natural Pet located in the usa. Of all that I've read and the reviews I've looked at, this product is the one that gives me the most hope. Good luck to you
Hi Theresa many thanks for your reply. The blood is a bright red color, and I spoke to his homeopath vet yesterday, and he sent me some homeopath tablets for him to take, with the others he is on. So thankyou so much for your advice, regards Stacey x

When you say 'blood in stool' does that mean they are black and tarry looking stools, or is the blood bright red?
Black, tarry stools indicate bleeding in the stomach or upper GI tract; this could be a serious complication.
Bright red blood in the stools means the bleeding is happening at the end of the GI tract near the anus; this could be from something simple like repeatedly straining to make a bowel movement.
If this were my cat black stools would have us at the vet in short order; bright red blood would have me keeping an eye on things to see if they worsen/stay the same/resolve.
Hi, I have been using the Essiac tea with my 6kg cat Baby, who has 3 masses in his lungs since last Monday(7 days), and I have noticed blood in his feces. Do you think that's ok? He is bouncing about and eating and drinking ect. Thanks, Stacey xox
Thank you all for your stories. Denise, I was excited to hear about your cat as my Shih Tzu has lymphoma as well in the lungs. She did Chemo and was in remission and when it came back, we tried again, but unfortunately it's become resistant. I started Essiac today....I only gave her 1/4 of an oz vs 1/2 once and she had upset tummy an hour later and wasn't feeling well until this afternoon. I am going to try and mix with a little food tomorrow, but did anyone's furbaby react initially? Should I just gradually increase? Thank you all!!! Would love updates as well!
How many mg was the capsules you used and what brand? Thank you.
My Journey with Jinx and Her Cancer
May 2015 noticed large lump - came up overnight about the size of a half golf ball; took Jinx to vet next day. She thought it was an abscess so cut it open to drain and put in drain tube. When she started she noticed that it didn't have the consistency of an abscess and sent the tissue to be biopsied.When the results came back it turned out to be a very aggressive type of fibrosarcoma. Possibly vaccine related.
One week later I took Jinx to the Oncology specialist, Dr. Macy, He said they could remove the left hind quarter; but, there was a 50/50 chance it would come back. We decided to try to slow it down with medication (Proxicam) and keep her comfortable. She was put on Proxicam and given a chemo drug (Lomastine) one every 3 weeks along with blood tests to check her white blood cell count.
This caused the tumor to shrink substantially; but it started to get bigger again after about 3 months. I had started her on 1/2 capsule of Essiac tea, twice a day, at the same time. They tried three other chemo drugs during the next 4 months; non of them seemed to slow the growth of the tumor. She was taking the essiac all through this. She never had any adverse reaction to any of the chemo.
In December 2015, when the tumor was getting very large(about the size of my fist) I decided to gradually increase her dosage of Essiac and the Dr. stopped the chemo treatments and said he didn't think there was any more they could do. I was told to keep her on the Proxicam and that I would know when it was time to put her to sleep....... she would stop eating and groonming.
It is now January 2016
I had increased the dose of essiac to 1 1/2 capsule twice a day. The tumor started to get very soft in the center (it had been a hard solid mass) and in a few days started to open and seep. At first it was a light clear reddish fluid, then turning clear. At first there was no odor at all. After a couple of days it seemed to start to smell and she got quite lethargic. Still eating though. It is now completely open and the tumor looks to be receding.
I called the vet and started her on Amoxicillin. She immediately improved and the odor of the drainage went away. It continuing to drain and has decreased in size by about 1/3 (2 weeks after the chemo was stopped.) I have been spraying it with Veterycin a few times a day to help keep it from getting infected. I really think she had the infection in her body before this started to drain; but I'm not sure.
She is acting so much more normal and it appears to me that this tumor is purging itself. The hole are filled with a substance that looks very much like chicken fat only white. It doesn't seem to hurt and Jinx is cleaning regularly. I think this is removing the necrotic skin as it dies. She has really had a boost energy in the last few days.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? I would like to see what I might expect next.
Hi, what amount did you give your pet?
Did the tumor size increase first?
Essiac Tea for Cats
Hi - I am trying to purchase the right form of essiac remedy for my 13 year old cat with a tumor originating from his jawbone. I am using cortizone as a painkiller at the moment - he is still in fine form. I decided not to opt for surgery, reconstructive jaw surgery and chemo as the vet said he would have 6 more months at most. the link you mention to buy doesn't work - and as the use of his jaw is reduced by the tumour - I think powder onto food will be better than syringe. Thanks in advance for your help, Rachel

Om mentions that you are searching for Frankincense Essential Oil for your dog. I have found that Mountain Rose Herbs out of Oregon, and Hopewell Oils (Texas, I think) both have a high quality 100% Frankincense Essential oil, we have used both with success.
Generally essential oils are best used externally. But some are used internally for serious illness. I have used Frankincense for a bladder infection for myself, and I did that externally. I just massaged one drop into the abdomen, over the bladder area. It was surprisingly effective. So, you may not even need to worry about try it internally. It also gave quick relief to an ovarian cyst (along with castor oil) and again, I used this externally.
If you are not able to get Frankincense, perhaps the Essiac will be enough. You may also try castor oil, which has been helpful for tumors for some. Again, you could massage one drop on the abdomen above the bladder area. Castor Oil can have a laxative effect, even used externally. Just be prepared for extra potty breaks if you try out this remedy.
I hope you are able to get your doggie healed soon!

Better But With Side Effects
Nao (Jakarta, Indonesia)
At the present time of my writing I have the same problem finding the right essential frankincense oil as the percentage should be high and not as sold generally in health stores.
If you visit "The Truth About Cancer", in the blog you may find many leads to the right kind albeit it is in the US. I am trying to find a solution to the problem in Canada and will try US if nothing transpires.
While it is true that essential oils should not be ingested, expert advice is needed as many cancer patients have been helped with essential oils internally and externally. See also utube on essential oils for more info. For a little dog 1/2 to one drop seems enough. To make 1/2 drop, do one drop with the carrier oil and half the rest for the next time. I hope this is clear enough.
For instance, placing a drop or two on the site is the thing to do.
My advice is to ask Mama to Many on EC as she could give you valuable hints. She has a source that is reliable. Best wishes

Thank you so much Om for your reply. I am researching frankincense now thanks for pointing me to that. Where do you usually buy frankincense from if I may know, since I read not all essential oils can be taken orally. Do you have any experience administering frankincense to dog? How much should we give a 7kg/15lbs dog?
Thank you again Om in advance

Hi, my 9yo dog is diagnosed with tumor in his bladder. I changed his diet to home cooked brown rice and simmered free ranged chicken and blended broccoli and shitake. I read many grave things about this kind of tumor, I am thinking to try essiac tea on him but confused where I should get it from? I live in Asia, I will need to order online either from US or Canada and shipped it to my country. So want to make sure I get the best essiac tea for my baby.
My german shepherd has lymphosarcoma. He is 5 years old..i just started him on essiac tea. How much should I give him ..he has been through some chemo and it did not work. He has lost weight. Cause he won't eat ..i use a syringe to get some babyfood down him.. he has been vomiting a clear slimy white liquid. Is this from the tea? thankyou Conny
Truly happy for you that Khaki is doing better! Thanks for taking the time to update!
~Mama to Many~
I just wanted to update on Khaki, my Himalayan. She continues to improve. Her appetite is better and her breathing is much better. I really thought I was going to have to put her down. I can only conclude that the Essiac is the reason for her miraculous improvement. I don't like to get my hopes up, especially with lymphoma, but if she can have a few more healthy months (or years) thanks to Essiac tea, then I am very grateful. Don't give up hope and give this a try if your pet has been diagnosed with cancer.
I'm not giving her the capsule...just emptying it into warm water and dividing it in half twice a day. She's been taking it pretty good with the syringe and her appetite seems to be coming back. I bought Essiac for Pets (from Rene M. Caisse R.N.)...of course it could be a knock off (hope not for $41.00) but it does list only the 4 herbs listed in the original formula. In this day and time you never know if you're getting an authentic product. Thank you for your advice. I am hoping for one of the miracles I've read about.
Denise (Georgia) ---
Pleasse do not feed pets with capsules. Authentic ESSIAC do not advise to use capsules anyway. Make the tea with the four herbs and roots. That will be easy to feed with syringe. Best of success.
I have a 15 year old Himalayan who was diagnosed with lymphoma. I ordered the Essiac and the bottle says one half capsule twice a day. I have been emptying the capsule, mixing it with warm water and syringing it into her mouth (not too fond of it, but toerates it). Is there a better way? The gel caps are huge and she can only take half at one time. Her breathing is sometimes labored. I don't want to give up on her but I don't want her to suffer...especially breathing. She is still eating and using the litter box.

Castor oil is an excellent remedy for open wounds - it helps ward off infection. Turmeric is also excellent for open wounds and is a pain remedy to boot. You can apply twice daily or as often as needed when you clean the ruptured tumor area.
And please take Rescue Remedy - for both your girl and yourself. It will help the both of you feel more calm and centered through this treatment.
hi, I am new to this site so I hope I have posted in the correct way. My cat who is 15yrs has a growth on her bottom it was removed two years ago. It has returned and vet will not operate due to concerns about her going to the toilet. They told me to put her to sleep but as yet I cant do this as she is so special to me and she still is showing good signs of enjoying her life.
The growth is weeping and getting large so god only knows what it is like inside. I have just began giving her wheat grass juice and then found this site. It interests me to try caster oil, tumeric and the herbs you mention on her.
My concerns are as the growths seems to be an open wound and weeping is it still ok to apply tumeric and caster oil? I have ordered the herbs to make essiac ( not the finished product as the web sites look a bit dodgy to me) I use herbs all the time on my farm animals so its not new to me. Im just not sure about her bottom looking so red would it hurt her? I hope someone can help me as I cant stop crying about her. thanks

When you buy ESSIAC it must be the original. I bought mine from ESSIAC WEST online. It has to have all roots and four herbs, not more not less. It will be very beneficial and in fact, I am making mine for prevention and detox. Make sure you start with smaller than suggested dosage and work it up gradually, watching for herx. reaction, that' s over kill as the herbs are very potent.
Be aware that tumors will blow up before they collapse. Then you can use turmeric powder and coconut oil mixed with castor oil on the wound. Also give turmeric powder internally, about 1/4 tsp. with some coconut oil as the t. powder is not water soluble but it binds with oil.
The instructions are included. Namaste, Om
Just curious as to what the alcohol content does to my pet, should I give her the liquid essiac? Does anyone know how soon one would see it working?
Wow. You said you gave her 6 capsules daily. I'm only giving one a day as directed. How did you decide to go with more? Thanks.
hi, try aussie well to buy your essiac tea, it's around $60.00 for 1 pound which equates to around 500 grams and it's also 2 day free shipping (they get it from starwest botanicals in U.S.A.).
Hi Cveta, I've read in a blog that you could use the Essiac for human for pets. You could get the tea from this website by donation:
I'm sure if you contact the organisation, they would be able to help you with dosage and what extra postage would be to post the tea to you. Good luck and hope this reply is not too late for your cat Lisa.
Please post and let us know how Lisa is.
My two yr. old cat was diagnosed with fiv.. I am giving krill oil in a dropper .. carefull not to get too much so it goes into the lungs ..do it slow. Also L=lysine & organic vinager in his water. Also a probiotic. Another preventive for kidney & urine problems is Kidney support GOLD by Pet Wellbing (on line). I also ordered liver which I will give small amounts daily. I had a cat that was 15 who would not eat or drink for 10 days, the vet said bring her in & they would put her to sleep. I took off work & carried her in a sling all day & gave her 4 times a day cod liver oil. On the 10th day she jumped out & started drinking & eating slowly & lived until she was 22 & died in my arms.. She had a tumor in her stomach & the cod liver oil somehow healed it.. could have been a hair ball.. they figured she lived to be 15 & she would die... not so.. Also healed a tumor on my niece's dog's cheek.. I forget the two things I used for a pack..(it is a old treatment for humans with boils etc).. It worked.. also gave a little in the mouth.. I am going to look it up tonite.. some cold packed oil & baking soda (natural kind with no aluminum in it. it works.. look it up.. just put in cold pressed oil & baking soda... cannot remember the name of the oil... should pop up on the computer maybe.. thank u .. If anyone has anything else for Fiv.. for my Hoot (cat) was diagnosed today 3.25.15, Shirley.
Hi Alex, my cat Lisa has also a mammary tumour .I can`t find Essiac for pets in Bulgaria and dont`t know if it`s save to give her Essiac for humans. Which form of the remedy are you giving and what is the dosage. Are you feeding Sasha low carb diet, or giving vit.D and shark cartilage? Thank you and good luck!
For authentic Essiac tea, which you brew, please visit rene caisse tea dot com. Deb works with Mali Klein, and they are extremely ethical in providing a superior product which is the same formula which Rene Caisse used.
You can also make castor oil compresses and use ESSIAC soaked and do as the castor pack.
How did this work out for you in and your cat in the end? My cat's name is also Sasha. She has mammary cancer. She is shutting down, not eating, or drinking. I've started her on Essiac today. Wondering if there was improvement with your cat. Looking forward to hearing from you!
How do you give the Essiac tea?
How's your dog doing? I'm scared my cat has tumor, but I've heard of essiac years ago. My 85 yr old friend suppressed 5 tumors with it. Bad flu virus got him and wife, doctors discourage people.

Hey R. Fisher!
I don't have any advice to add, only posting to agree with your comment on dog food and seizures. There has been a direct correlation with a certain grocery store brand of dog food and seizures in dogs. The key ingredients in this awful kibble are corn, along with red food dyes. The package on the outside gives the impression of wholesome ingredients; if you feed kibble you really have to look beyond the packaging and on the ingredient label to ensure you are feeding a truly healthy kibble.
Take your dog off of dog food and treats. Dog foods and dog treats are killing our fur babies.. We have a beagle and when he was young he started having seizures. We took him off of dog food and dog treats and started boiling him chicken, deer meats, ground round, brown rice, and a veggie twice a day. I would prepare him enough for four or five days and that's what we would feed him. Give him some of the good fruits, carrots and celery for treats. Our beagle never had another seizure. Good luck...
Angela --- for your thirteen year old ? with lung trouble.
I obtained my Essiac tea from ESSIAC WEST online. Theirs is the four herb tea with roots included.
It comes with a booklet where all your questions are answered.
Start with a lesser solution on page eight, para. four.I am doing one tsp. daily, hoping to do one tsp. morning and evening.
It is best to go slow and watch the thirteen year old. Is it a dog?
More info on the dosage please. Are ya'll brewing the tea in small batches and giving how much, how many times per day? Or sprinkling the whole tea on their food. And for that too, how much and how often did you use it. Thank you for any info. We are dealing with several small tumors in the lungs of our 13 yr old.
I have a 11 years old Golden Retriver Tahoe. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma on her right front leg two weeks ago. After the initial diagnosis, shoe couldn't walk anymore and limped badly. The only time she would stand up and walked a little bit is two meal time and potty time. She lost weight, had reduced appetite even though I started to feed her homemade meal after the diagnosis. Most time she just lie in her bed and seemed in pain and listless. Three days ago, I started to give her 60ml Essiac tea twice daily on empty stomach. I can see her condition improved just after one dose of the tea. After two doses of the tea, she walked outside with me for two blocks after dinner. This was the first time she ever walked since the initial diagnosis. Now, after three days of taking Essiac tea, her limp improved a lot. She walks twice a day, finishes her meal completely, go potty twice a day, and seemed gain back some weight. I am so grateful of the site caninecancer introducing Essiac tea to me and my lovely dog Tahoe. I am keeping my fingers acrossd and hoping Tahoe will make a full recovery and put the cancer into remission.
I have to say, I did use the 8-herb formula, and had great results, so I'd advise that it's NOT dangerous. My 16-yr-old Himalayan (cat), who was given 6 wks to 6 mos to live by our vet, lived to be 19 years old - largely, I'm convinced, due to the Essiac "knock-off" I was giving him!
Many thanks to such a great site, for humans and our four-legged companions! I have a dog, Lady, who developed a lump on her back just above her tail. Her hair did not grow in that area and the growth often looked swollen and lumpy. I did not want anyone to cut it as it might spread, and I did not want to traumatize my little girl, so, upon the advice of a naturopathic chiropractor I go to, who is also an animal lover, he suggested I give her Essiac. I started stirring a tablespoon of the concentrated tea into her food twice a day. I home brew the tea and therefore have a lot of the thickened herbs left over, so one day I decided to just put a glob of the herbal substance right on the growth. I held it there for a while to make sure it would not slip off. I kept putting some more on it each day for about a month, while continuing to give her the tea in her food. The growth has completely dried up, but I continue to give her a tablespoon of the liquid once a day to make sure it does not come back. I hope that is helpful.
Soft Tissue Sarcoma
Barbara from Tempe, Az. Yes, Essiac is perfect for Minnie. It must be taken at least for six months twice a day on empty stomach. Diet should include lots of turmeric and some powdered vit C. I used Essiac to rid a friend's dog of suspected cancer of the spleen. It was gone after six months. The dosage depends on the weight of the dog. In her case it could be one ounce in warm water. You can brew the tea yourself. The website for Essiac will give much assistance. The herbs have to have the roots attached! My shepherd voided a black jelly like mass after some weeks of usage as the tea detoxifies the entire body. No need to worry but pay attention to clean and wholesome diet.
My own feelings about raw food is that even the meat of grassfed animals is not free of GMO's as they are all fed with that kind of formula which is done everywhere. So my dogs eat lamb or chicken but the problem remains re GMO's. Lots of raw vegs. And VCO one tablesp. At least. You may want to include kelp powder and nutritional yeast. Good luck. Om

How many capsules should I give my dog that weighs about 20 weakened pounds?
Essiac has helped many our of dogs and cats for years. We just use the 4 herb formula but it has saved lives and done wonders for our furry friends. Our elderly dogs and cats have it daily as a regular part of their diet. We make ours a little stronger so less is needed to get a good amount in them each day and up to three times and day for the very sick or injured. Don't hesitate. Essiac is a staple in our home.
Hi Maria and All, My 18 year old cat has just recently been diagnosed with lymphoma. I had already ordered Essiac tea from _______ when I found the swelling by her throat.
It's early days yet but I'd like to tell you that I recently read in a book by Dr Cass Ingram (naturopathic style doctor) that sardines are a good (almost) complete food and great for the immune suppressed. It seems the only thing missing is Vitamin C. She loves sardines anyway and has taken Essiac on it's own and with the sardines which pleasantly surprised me.
I'm going to put vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate in her food (to bowel tolerance by starting with 100grams 3 times a day and when her stools become runny with any increase in dosage that'll be the sign to reduce it to where her stools remain firm). Another thing is to look at enzymes and probiotics to help their digestion so they get all the goodness from their food; flaxseed oil, a good vitamin supplement; barleygrass, spirulina, chlorella. I'm not saying all these are right for your cats but they are recommenede by various naturopathic vets. I give my cats a combined spirulina and astaxanthin supplement as well a combined digestive enzymes and probiotics powder mixed into their food. A drop of apple cider vinegar in their mineral water too. Please avoid tapwater at all costs.
I recommend a book by Martin Zucker called "The Veterinarian's Guide To Natural remedies For Cats" which is a collection of many veterinarians' approaches and advice on the whole gamut of feline health issues including the foundation of good health, nutrition.
Kelp (and other brown seaweeds as I understand) has anti-tumour properties. serrapeptase is worth investigating as it dissolves dead tissue; fulvic acid is something else worth researching due to it's enormous health properties.
Lots of love and care goes a long way to helping your pets feel better and a relaxed atmosphere so please do not stress yourselves, there is hope despite what the allopathic vets/doctors may say
I wish you and your beloved animals well and the best of health to you all,
kind regards, Fiona
My cat didn't show cancer on his xrays or in his blood work but he has a big lump by his nose/mouth and his lip is swollen so much he gets food stuck up under it and his eye swells part closed some days, it comes and goes.... The vet said that she's pretty sure it's a tumor though it's not acting like a typical cancerous tumor... I can't afford to do the biopsy/test as it's close to about $600 or so for all that, & I can't afford cancer treatments. Did the tea help u at all?
Hi Todd, I'm so pleased for you and THANK YOU for sharing this success story with us. This gives us all hope and boosts our confidence in nature. Thank you again
Hi Laura, Like you my 13 year old female cat Sacha was diagnosed with cancer last week, a tumour in her abdomen the size of a half mango, the vet said, was inoperable and better to put her down. I have started feeding her, like you on fresh chicken and partially cooked fresh fish (which she always loved). I put powdered essiac tea into the fish dish and she laps it up. SO so pleased she likes essiac tea and usually she doesn't take easily to new foods.
For about a week now she has been getting progressively worse and is now losing the power of her left hind leg when she tries to walk, which she does by sort of swinging her body from side to side as she moves as tho to propel herself forward. She's so brave. She left droppings of her stools on the floor this morning, hard ones and looking too black. She's also dribbling urine sometimes.
However since I started her on the essiac tea, twice in her food yesterday - I just put less than a quarter tsp in just enough boiling water to make a sauce for her fish, I did think I noticed an imporvement today. 'I didn't even do a concoction then as was afraid it would be too strong. I have given her two more helpings of the tea in her food today and second time I had boiled it for 10 mins. Each time she ate it. My fingers are crossed. I also put a drop of Hydrogen peroxide in her water.
To buy essiac tea there is a charity in England that offers it against- a donation of £9. 00 They are called www.cloudstrust.org. I found their website on another site that tells you all about essiac tea, it's devoted to the subject. The site name is www.healthfreedom.com
Best of luck with your remedies and success with your cat. My impression is that cats know instinctively whats good for them. If you give them sth that cures cancer, and they think it works for them they'll eat it, so long as it's not chemical but natural. Let me know how you get on.
If you like we can stay in touch, share notes and offer each other moral support. If you need a holiday from your cat perhaps I can go and cat sit for you, if you can do the same for me. Of course I'd have to bring my cat with me. I'm living in Dublin, and you?
I'd gladly give you my e-mail address here but not sure if we're allowed to do this; I'll chance it anyway. its mardnl at hotmail.com
Best of luck n lookin forward to hearing from you
Hi Vicky and Lindy, I have just learnt tons and tons of things about essiac tea on the excellent website devoted exclusively to essiac tea. The name is www.healthfreedom.com
it points out in particular that the original formula contains the roots as well as the leaves of the sheep's sorrel. This is paramount for the success of the treatment. Withour the root the medicine is less effective. The reason why some companies don't include the roots is because it's more expensive to produce.

I took my 12-yr-old (13 in Feb) 28# McNab cattle dog in for x-rays of a possible back injury on Dec 27 and found a tumor on her spleen and fluid around her heart and lung. After a second x-ray this week for confirmation, decided against chemo and did some on-line research. I got some Essiac tea leaves and flax oil at the Health Store. I was able to get her to eat one meal of the cottage cheese-flax oil. I brewed some tea but couldn't find directions for how much to use or how much to give her and she won't take it. Last evening her breathing became very labored and she has stopped eating now. I used a syringe to give her some of the tea but have only gotten about 18cc into her during the night and another 20 today so far. She did drink some water this am. Do you think it is too late for this to help her now? She has always been such an active, puppy-like dog who went for hours with me on horse-back trips. No one could believe her age. I know I should wait longer before posting this, but fear every minute is needed. Can anyone help me please.
If your dog refuses the Essiac Tea at all costs. Then I'd try something else.
Ever heard of the Budwig Diet? A lot of people have had similar success treating all kinds of cancer, much like with Essiac Tea. I'm sure your pets would consume that.
One warning about using the Budwig Diet (I had this problem with my dog). It's made up of flax seed oil, and cottage cheese. It's very heavy in fats, even though they're good fats, they can cause pancreas problems.
I would strongly suggest giving them digestive enzymes with the Budwig Diet, since it might cause pancreatitis in dogs. They might have trouble digestiving the fats. Or at least consult with your vet if your pet has a history pancreatitis first.
Best up luck to your loved ones, whatever you decide to do.
Hi Robin, I was in the same boat- still am. Just how much do you give to a dog and what if the dog (like mine) hates the taste of it and will not consume it? Well it's heartbreaking to say the least. I stopped forcing the tea into Melanie, she was getting so upset and I was too. I was just stressing her out even more by forcing the tea down her throat. So I stopped. I commenced with Tumeric and Cinamin as a tea and once again although she was a little better with this, she hates it. What to do? You feel so powerless, helpless.
Today after seeing that the tumour has grown, I thought and made the decision to go back to the tea. However I'm not making it up and waiting for it to brew. I don't have time, I can see that. So I have elected rightly or wrongly to give her the tea straight in a small amount of ice cream which she will accept. I guess I'm trying something out of the box, as this isn't recommended on any website. If I have any positive results I will let you know. Good luck to you and your treasured one.
Hi Vicki, my Blue Burmese is 16 years old with a cancerous tumour in her mouth/jaw. I give her one essiac capsule (contents mixed into her food) in morning and one again at night feed. I am now also adding 2 teaspoons of colloidal silver water to her regular drinking water each time I fill the bowl. If you have trouble getting your cat to eat the food with the essiac in it, try mixing the essiac capsule contents into a little butter. My cat used to just lick this off the spoon. Now though she is having difficulty eating so I have to syringe feed her at the moment. Good luck with your kitty. Make sure you buy original Essiac - look at web site "all things healthy" they are a NZ distributor of the original essiac formula (which is copyrighted) and will despatch to all countries.
Essiac Tea is a great choice, but should not be the only remedy used. Always seek professional Vetrinary assistance.
True Essiac tea is a combination of 4 herbs, Sheep Sorrel, Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Bark, and Turkish Rhubarb root.
It is Easy to make but Time Consuming. You can purchase these herbs from most online herb resellers. Here in Australia, Essiac is illegal to sell but one can obtain the herbs individually for brewing the tea. just not as pre-mixed herb packs specifically for Essiac.
To brew bring 5 litres of purified water to boil in a large Stainless Steel Pot, boil for around 5 to 10 mins to ensure any germs that may have been in the water or on the pot are killed off. Then Add 1/2 cup Organic Burdock Root, 1 teaspoon of ground organic turkish Rhubarb root powder, 4 heaped teaspoons of Powdered Organic slippery Elm bark. Stir mixture thouroughly with sanitized stainless steel spoon or ladel. And allow to boil for a further 10 - 15 mins. Then turn of heat. This next step is important and as any true tea totler will attest, allow the mixture to cool below the boiling point to around the 80-90 degree centigrade range, then add the final ingredient, 1/2 cup of Organic Sheep Sorrel. Sheep Sorrel must NEVER be Boiled as it changes it structure. Stir thouroughly and allow to steep for 24 hours.
Re-heat tea to around 85 Degrees Centigrade (DO NOT BOIL).
Strain mixture into large 2 litre sterilised glass bottles using a fine stainless steel tea strainer and a stainless steel funnel (all sanitised with an ethel-alcohol spray).
Garden variety Rhubarb is poisonous to Cats, however Turkish rhubarb, albeit closely related, does not seem to affect cats. either it is non toxic or the concentration in Essiac is too small for them to be harmed.
Human dosage is around 1/2 cup of tea twice daily (morning and night) for my cat, I mixed 2 tablespoons of tea into his drinking water so he drinks it throughout the day. Since my cat is convalescing inside it is the only access to water he has so has little choice but to drink it.. He does not seem to mind it either. Essiac has a very earthy taste.
I brew Essiac for my farther who has Cancer of the Bladder and Lungs (from years of smoking) He no longer has cancer in his lungs according to the doc, and the mass on his bladder has shrunk to a size where they think Chemo will be beneficial.
My cat may have Cancer in the lungs (although I doubt it as he is only 13 months old) but the Vet thinks it is a high possibility looking at the chest x-rays. So I have started the cat on Essiac. After about 4 days on the tea his breathing seemed better. (possibly due to the Diuretic effects of Essiac) I took him off the tea and continued his anti-fungal and anti-biotic medication from the vet and tha cat slowly got worse. He is now back on the Essiac.
Hi Robin, Im having the same problem with my 7 year Boston. The problem is I'm overseas and I don't speak the language, it is really stressing me out. All the vets keep telling me to put her to sleep. She is still eating, playing and walking. She has shallow breathing and a huge tumor in her breast and her leg is swollen. When you find out please let me know and I will do the same for you. I found someone here that makes the tea, but I dont know if it's the right one. Wish me luck and the same for you!
I have just learned that my 11 yr. old cat has a malignant tumor on her small intestine. I am heartbroken. Can anyone tell me how much liquid and also the powdered version of Essiac I should give her? I have read this is quite helpful for tumors.
Hope someone can help me. Vicky
Can someone please help me quick? My 10 year old Maltese has lymphoma and it's moving so quickly, that we've chosen not to do any medical treatments of chemo. Yesterday, I located some Essiac powder after reading on this site how it had miraclously helped other animals... The problem now is that I cannot find anything definitive about how to give the powder to her.... Or how much... She weighs about 15 pounds now and she's not eatting a lot... The prednesone is helping some in that area, but she still turns her nose up at most things. Can someone tell me how and how much I should be giving her?
Thanks in advance...
Lymphoma in my cat
My 15 and a half year old cat was diagnosed with Lymphoma last week. The Vet wanted to put him down there and then! The tumour is in his intestines and I have been giving him an all fresh meat and fish diet this past week plus ES Clear and the Nu Herbs which came with the kit. My cat also has one prednisolone a day and fortekor for his heart condition (which is under control).
He is much happier in himself and has started going out in the garden again. He had very runny stools but they are now normal again. I am also giving him some raw chicken livers (as seen on this site) which he laps up and probiotic yogurt.
I would like to purchase some Essiac tea but I just dont know which type to buy. It seems there are two types - the original having 4 herbs and another with 8 herbs. Also am worried about the alcohol content. Can any please advise me so I can help my beloved cat more.
My sweet 11 yr old kitty was diagnosed with oral cancer ten days ago; she has a tumor on the roof of her mouth. I'm waiting for the lab results (they aren't sure if it's melanoma or fibrosarcoma) and have a CT scan scheduled this week to see if it's gone into her nasal/sinus cavities.
As soon as she was diagnosed, I started giving her what I thought was Essiac tea from my health food store, but now realizing per the posts above that what I gave her was the 8 herb formula. Is there any danger that I've done this? It was only for about a week-ten days. I've just ordered the 'real' 4 herb proper version from Canada.
However, I have trouble giving her the tea, as it requires holding her and putting it down her mouth/throat with a dropper, which terrifies her (I'm sure due to the tumor taking up half her mouth). I also mix it into her food, but her appetite has decreased significantly due to the tumor.
Any other suggestions? She's still bathing regularly so I thought about dipping her paws in it.....?
I have a 12 year ol American Cocker Spaniel (42 lbs) with a malignant sebaceous tumor. We had one removed from his left hind leg last November, and a new one appeared on his inner left hind leg this June. The vet looked at the cells under a 'scope and said it was the same cancer.
He's in great spirits and health otherwise, and the tumor doesn't seem to bother him in the slightest. However, I wanted to try as many immune-boosting things as I could!
We started him on Grizzly Fish oil and essiac powder last week. I was surprised that I had no problem getting him to eat the powder on his food (so long as I put the fish oil on top)!
We just tried 1/4 teaspoon last week to make sure he wasn't going to have a bad (or messy) reaction to it. This weekend, we're going to start upping the dose to a full teaspoon this weekend and the 3 teaspoons (=1 ounce) by the next, according to the recommended dosage on the Essiac tea site.
He is also taking the Power Mushrooms. I'll post back with updates as to his progress!
Should I apply the tea directly to the tumorous mass? My dog has an open cancer sore on her leg and I suspect it would be pretty easy to do this topically.
The vet has said her cancer is inoperable, but she is feeling pretty sprightly, eating like a little pig and walking just fine--so I thought I should at least try this treatment, but again, wondered the best way to do it.
Hi I'm interested to know from the owners who have used essiac tea to treat tumours in cats whether the cats were also on more traditional medications administered by the vet ( steroids etc) and what the vet's attitude to the use of the herbs was. My sister had just started on giving essiac tea to her cat after she was diagnosed with tumours a couple of weeks ago but her vet thought it would interfere with the other medications he's giving her and has advised her to stop. Thanks for any info that may help. Van
Two years ago, my yellow lab toots, was diagnosed with thyroid and had a lump the size of a golf ball on her throat. The vet said she would only live about three months. She had lost about 14 lbs. We were heart broken as she was only five years old. We began giving her essiac in capsule form. After three months, the tumor had shrunk to the size of a pea. Two more months later, all of her weight came back on and the tumor was completely gone. Took her to the vet and he was astonished. He couldn't find A SIGN OF CANCER IN HER ANYWHERE. We were giving her six capsules daily and have now cut it back to one a day. She is full of energy and I am looking forward to many more years with her at my side.
I have started our 8 year old female rottie on Essiac tea after discovery a mass in the front of her throat. We are not sure if it is cancerous, but after researching all herbal rememdies the Essiacs seemed the best. The advise on the site however was NOT to give animals the premade liquid tonic as it contains alcohol. We bought the powder and made the tea our selves. I will let you know how she progresses on it. We did buy the liquid however for ourselves and are taking it as an immune system booster.
My 7 year old male boxer was diagnosed with a benign tumor on the roof of his mouth about 6 weeks ago. The vet said he would have to eventually be put down as the tumor grew because it was inoperable in that location.
I did some research online and saw this website. I went to my local herb store and the owner gave me tea for him. The brand name of the tea is 'Now', the tea itself is called 'Ojibwa'. It has all the same ingredients as the Essiac tea. He would not drink it, so we soaked his dry food in it twice a day and then he ate it fine.
Yesterday the tumor started bleeding rather heavily on and off all day. I was sure I was going to have to have him put down. I am happy to report that today the tumor turned white, and then a few hours later it fell off. I am shocked that his mouth looks completely normal.
Here is the link to the original ESSIAC and their for pets web page. Here is their recommended how based on weight of pet:
I started using essiac tea for my cat early Jan. 2011. She was given 1 month left in Oct 2009, diagnosed with advanced breast cancer. I put her on Innova EVO and started giving her daily Reiki about 20 minutes a day. She had been getting picky with food, so in November I let her eat crap food(friskies/purina). In Dec. 2010 1 of her tumors opened and ulcerated. I put her back on EVO along with mouse a day (from pet store selling feed mice for reptiles). In Jan started the essiac tea 6ml's twice daily, 250mg Vit. C twice daily, and tiny bit of crushed raw garlic once daily. Smell has gone. She's acting completely normal/active, good appetite. Now giving mouse every other day. Ulceration seems at times to look as if it's healing. So getting better, will keep it up.
Hello fellow members. I have read the posts about the Essiac 8-herb tea as being the cure for pet cancer. Yet I have found that the Original Essiac company has a Beware disclaimer warning people that the 8-herb tea is NOT the original Rene Caisse's product or formula.
Brusch - Paulhus 8 herb formula is not Essiac by Nurse Rene Caisse. So why are the Paulhus' calling their product Essiac?
The true Canadian Rene Caisse formula called ESSIAC consists of only 4 herbs. Don't be confused by the 8 herb formula developed by Dr. Brusch years after Rene Caisse had passed away in 1978.
Do your homework.
Our pets lives are at stake. If people are posting untruthful information as a way to promote their home business base, that is really sad.
I just discovered that my loving cat has cancer and I sure don't want to be messing around with a knock off of the original Rene Caisse's formula. I called my health food store and they only cary the original 4 herb formulas. That speaks volumes to me and it also should to you.
I hope the Earth Clinic staff looks into this info and sorts it out, as it could cost our lovely pets their lives.
Wish me luck, I want to save my kitty's life.
Hello, Your help is truly appreciated.... My adorable, sweet & joyous adopted 9. 5lb Pom-Peek is 14years old. She has 3 legs and has had many teeth removed.... She has been through so much. Recently a benign spindle cell tumor the size of a grape was removed from her front leg. Please advise on your protocol (dosage, administering & duration) recommendations regarding brewed Essiac tea. I want to ensure she remains healthy as long as possible any tumors stay away! In appreciation and thanks.
Hi gayle, I'd like to ask what is the right amount of dosage of essiac tea you can give to a cat who has tumour. I already ordered an essiac capsule which I've been giving her 1/2 teaspoon twice a day. I'm planning to buy a bulk herb essiac tea from herbal healer.. But right now I'm confused. If I bought the essiac tea what dosage will I give to my cat? I'm afraid she might get overdose or something. Can you suggest how many amount of essiac tea I can give? I have both the capsule and the liquid tea. Thanks!!
Hi Arlene. I am so sorry but it has been months since I checked in to this part of the site. I actually brewed my own tea, but only because it was less expensive to do so. I am sure the prepared herbal tonic would be just as effective.
Where is the best place to purchase this? My cat age 17 just developed lymphoma cancer. I bought some EHS clear however it contains alcohol.
Teresa, I emailed you but your account no longer exists. I am so sorry it took me so long to get back to this page at EARTHCLINIC. I had forgotten about it! I am praying you did start your fur baby on Essiac already. I simply followed directions of the box insert, then cooled it. I started giving about a quarter cup to her daily. I sweetened it with a little clover honey which she drinks without a problem. The castor oil pack is a cotton pad very soaked with HOME HEALTH castor oil from the health foods store. I applied it nightly to her operative site for about an hour as we watched TV or just hung out in bed. I would tie it afterward to her arm with a gauze wrap; sometimes it stayed all night, sometimes not. I'm glad to say she is in perfect health, happy and like a puppy at age 11. Please let me know how you are doing. Thanks.
Happy to say my little Westie is still healthy and happy. Excellent Vet checks without problems or return of her tumor. She is now 11. I've started her on Essiac again weekly just because a box was sitting in the cabinet due to expire 3/2011 so may as well give her some again.
