Subject: re dogs and cancer
> Can anybody help me, please!!!! My dog probably has cancer and does anybody know of anything that can help? I should know whether he does or not in a day or two when the tests come back but I am, unfortunately, pretty certain that he does. I would appreciate any direct replies with any suggestions of herbal remedies, etc. He has been such a wonderful companion and has helped me through some very rough times in my life. I just can't sit and "wait" because I love him so much. He is not a young dog but seemed like a puppy until recently. I remember reading something about somebody's dog and Essaic awhile back.
dogs do usually respond to the same cancer treatments as humans; good diet, love and supportive herbs etc. Choice of herbs would depend on type and place of tumour; basically anti tumour herbs with support for the afflicted organs. Dosages are as for human children.
we wish you and your dog well
