Holistic Cancer Prevention & Care in Your Pet

Cancer: pet guardians fear this diagnosis above all others; not only because the conventional treatments are so perilous, but also because, despite treatment, it is most often fatal. More than 50% of dogs over the age of 10 are diagnosed with cancer every year, and the incidence of cancer in cats and younger animals is growing. As responsible guardians, we need to understand the risk factors that contribute to the development of cancer; do all we can to prevent it; and take effective action when a diagnosis of cancer is made.

Cancer develops due to a variety of factors, many of which we cannot control; such as age, genetics, environmental pollution, and electromagnetic radiation. Other factors include poor nutrition, unhealthy lifestyle, conventional medical treatments (such as vaccination) that can disrupt the immune system, toxic chemicals used in the home, and stress. The stress factor is compounded in many purebred pets by inbreeding, which increases or creates genetic predispositions to poor immune function and disease.

AVMA's New "Guidelines for Responsible Pet Ownership" on Dr. Jean's Little Big Cat Blog!

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) just published its new Guidelines for Responsible Pet Ownership (Journal of the AVMA, 2012 Jan 1;240(1):11-12), parting ways with the California VMA's Golden Rules of Pet Ownership that it had previously endorsed. It's interesting, and instructive, to compare the two. I've rearranged them so the most similar rules are side-by-side. In some cases, rules have either been combined or separated; and some do not seem to have a corresponding rule in the other set.

Caring for Your Senior Pet

Getting older…it's happening to all of us every day, including our pets. And just like humans, dogs and cats are prone to a number of medical problems as they get older. With diet, supplements, and extra care, many of these conditions can be prevented, delayed, or managed, to give your pet the best possible quality of life throughout the senior years. Here are a few of the health issues you may run into as your pet ages, and some things you can do treat them naturally:

Hot News on Pet Food!

Little Big Cat is coming to you today from beautiful Reno, Nevada; I'm attending the mid-year meeting of AAFCO, the Association of American Feed Control Officials. If that organization sounds familiar, it's because you've seen it on virtually every can, bag, roll, and every other form of commercial pet food you've ever bought. AAFCO sets the standards for pet food regulation in the U.S. (and essentially for Canada). Although AAFCO is not itself a regulatory body, its members–volunteers from each state–are the regulators and enforcers of state laws affecting animal feed and pet food.

My 10-year-old collie was just diagnosed with lymphoma. Her vet has prescribed chemo, but I would prefer to treat her with diet and supplements -- I have been researching online, but can't seem to find a conclusive response to the success of any kind of treatment. Can you share any information or suggestions?

I am sorry you are facing such a tough diagnosis with your dog. We can give you some general recommendations from Dr. Siegler for immune boosting supplements, but for a thorough cancer fighting protocol we do recommend you contact a holistic veterinarian.

Here are some basic suggestions:

Diet is the foundation of good health and this is the most important thing you can do for him. We recommend you read What You Need to Know About Your Pet's Food in our Articles Section.

Select ONE of the following immune support supplements:

Only Natural Pet Immune Strengthener is a powerful immune support complex that includes medicinal mushrooms, antioxidants and Cat's Claw along with other herbs to help with chronic disease and cancer.

OR

CAS Options by Genesis Resources is an immune building supplement that includes mushrooms and antioxidants that have been shown to boost the immune system.

In addition to the immune support supplement provide a good antioxidant complex such as Seven Forest's Quercenol. NOTE: Antioxidants are controversial with some oncologists, so check with yours before ordering.

Cellular Forte by PhytoPharmica is another good supplement for fighting cancer and boosting immunity and can be given in addition to the others.

Only Natural Pet B.S.S.T. Herbal Formula is based on the widely used Essiac Formula that has been shown to be helpful in many types of cancer.

Consider adding 4-Life Transfer factor, a powerful immune support formula, to your dog's regimen.

Here is a link to the American Holistic Veterinary Medicine 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.
