Traditional Lymphoma Canine Treatment wasn't working anymore
Canine Lymphoma isn't going to beat us! If you have a dog with lymphoma, there's hope and it isn't canine chemotherapy.
If you read our last blog post, you know her canine lymphoma progression for the last 3 years. Not bad considering her untreated canine lymphoma life expectancy of 1 month!
For those that don’t know, I was a licensed pharmacist for over 30 years. For 13 of those years, I was an investigator and regulator for the State of Florida with jurisdiction over all drugs and dietary supplements. As a result of my years in the industry, I have embraced herbs and food as my medicine and lifestyle.
In May 2022, a mandated rabies shot brought Miss Tillie out of her 3rd lymphoma remission and typical dog lymphoma symptoms came back. Of course, we immediately took her to our vet. Miss Tillie still had one dose of the chemotherapy drug Adriamycin (Doxorubicin) that she could receive before the maximum was reached. She received it but unfortunately had an anaphylactic reaction to the drug. Her eye swelled up and her heart was racing. The good news is that the one shot knocked the lymphoma into it's 4th remission.
In November 2022, after hurricane Ian destroyed our home and we had to move everything out and move into a trailer in our yard, I noticed lumps inside her belly.
Traditional lymphoma canine treatment was not an option anymore. I immediately began looking for "dog lymphoma natural treatments".. There had been 2 new cancer treatments that had come out that could extend her life a few months. We chose to start her on Laverdia which she was on for about 18 weeks. After about 2 months on the Laverdia alone, I noticed a plateau where the lumps had gone down but she was not going into a complete remission so I added Ivermectin to her regimen. I adapted her morning herbal food supplement and food as part of her dog lymphoma diet.
Tillie has been on 1 packet of Sunrider Nuplus daily since her diagnosis. We now add the following herbal cancer treatments to her morning Nuplus supplement:
1. A combination of mushrooms (Lions Mane, Cordyceps, Reishi, Turkey Tail, Chaga and Maitake)
2. 1 Tablespoonful of Flaxseed - Very high in Omega 3
3. 1/2 ml of Astragalus Root
The lymphoma in her belly had gone down but she was not going into a complete remission so I stopped the Laverdia. 2.5 weeks ago. I had been reading a lot about onother anthelmetic drug named Tribendazole that is showing to be effective for severral types of canine cancer. So I switched the 0.25 MLS of Ivermectin to 2 mls of Tribendazole per day.
The lymphoma began to respond again but I still feel we have a little more to go so I’m continuing the Tribendazole and morning herbs. When she is in complete remission, I will discontinue the Tribendazole and continue her on a completely herbal regimen of the current Sunrider, mushrooms, flaxseed and Astralaus root.
For her second meal of the day, Miss Tillie eats a homemade high Omega-3 Fish based diet. (1/2 cup) with 1/2 can of low salt sardines in water.
In addition to a high Omega-3 diet, Fenben for cancer and Ivermectin and cancer are both effective options to traditional canine lymphoma treatment
