My cat, Jenny, has a tumor by her lung. The x-ray was sent out to a radiologist
to read and he believes it is cancer. They suggest I put her down. The vet I go
to doesn't specialize in treatment, et cetera.
Jenny doesn't seem to be in any pain and seems happy. I would never put her down
unless I saw her suffering and I have exhausted all avenues of treatment. I just
started giving her flax seed oil in her food and she seems to breathe better. I
can tell how she's breathing by watching the little black heart marking on her fur.
She's a calico.
If you could give me any information of herbs to try, et cetera, to reduce the tumor
or help this problem, I would greatly appreciate it. They don't even know what kind
of cancer it is. They're just using the word "cancer."
Thank you for visiting Only Natural Pet Store. We are sorry you are facing such
a tough diagnosis with your cat. We can give you Dr. Siegler's general recommendations
for immune boosting supplements, but for a thorough cancer fighting protocol we
recommend that you contact
a holistic veterinarian.
Here are some basic suggestions:
Additionally, here is a link to the
American Holistic Veterinary Medical
Association's website to locate a holistic veterinarian in your area. If you
cannot find a holistic veterinarian within reasonable driving distance of your home,
many of them do phone consultations.
This list includes quite a few supplements, so please keep in mind that any supplements
chosen should be added one at a time - each increased gradually over several days
to watch for any reaction. Quality of life is an important factor, so if it becomes
a struggle to get the any of the supplements administered to your cat, then it may
be wise to reconsider their use.
If we can be of any further assistance, please feel free to call or email again.
