I am not a medical professional. I am not related to the veterinary field at all. I am simply a dog guardian who happened to discover last Sept. that my dog had an aggressive form of cancer. Some sort of sarcoma or other. My options at the veterinary surgeon’s office were to do nothing or to give my dog chemo. The prospects of both were extremely bleak, so I decided to do my own research and find an alternative.
What I discovered is amazing and vast as far as alternative treatments go. Since the 1930s scientists have known that cancer cannot thrive in bodies that are alkaline rather than acidic. Most of us and our pets inhabit highly acidic bodies because of the foods we do and do not choose to eat. * * The first thing I did for my dog was get him off of his commercial food – even though it was a very good food you can only buy in the specialty pet stores – and I began to make his meals myself. Most healthy dogs will do well on a raw meat diet, but my dog, being a cancer patient needed extra cautionary measures. I sought the advice of my regular vet, who has known Bart his whole eight years, and she suggested that I begin cooking him meals of 50% meat and 50% vegetables due to his already compromised immune system. Knowing I wanted to approach his condition holistically through diet, she did a lot of research for me and helped kick start a regimen that has shown wonderful results. I’m so grateful to have such a wonderful doctor to consult. I honestly believe my dog is happier now than he’s been his whole life. He’s still very active, playful and has a voracious appetite.
There are three supplemental treatments I am using beyond basic supplements. Each of the following are linked to order pages you may use if you like, but I am in no way affiliated with these brands or companies. Do your own research and find what resonates with you best. I am putting this out there to help make the research process easier for others, as I spent endless hours looking for all that I have found below: (you can click the underlined word to go to the webpage associated with each item.)
Below is the diet I am feeding my dog every day:
My dog is around 65 lbs. as he is an American Staffordshire Terrier. He’s extremely muscular and very active so this should be varied according to the weight and activity level of your own dog.
Preparation: We make large batches of food that last from five to six days at a time. Place half in one container for the fridge and the other half is frozen until only a day’s worth of food is left in his refrigerated container. We let his frozen food thaw over night and then place it in the fridge in the morning.
5am Breakfast -
about one and a half cups of his 50/50 mixture slightly heated with added supplements as follows:
1 calcium capsule, emptied into the bowl (discard the shell)
1 adult (human) multi-vitamin capsule emptied into bowl (discard the shell- many of these are corn based and corn is an allergen for most dogs)
3 tsps of unfiltered 100% olive oil
1 100mg B-17 tablet crushed
2 apricot kernels crushed
mixed all together
After he eats this we give him 3 drops of Carnivora mixed with a tiny bit of water from an eye dropper.
9am Essiac Tea mixture
The thing about Essiac is it should be given on an empty stomach, but this isn’t always easy based on scheduling conflicts. The Essiac is essential in his healing regimine, so however you have to do it, get it into your dog’s system. I make up some chicken broth every time I cook a batch of food for the week, so I’ll pour a little broth in with the tea to get my dog to drink it up.
3 drops of Carnivora
1 and 1/2 cups of his 50/50 mixture and 2 crushed apricot kernels and a dollop of cottage cheese and 100mg B 17 crushed and mixed together.
After lunch 3 drops Carnivora
4pm Essiac Tea and broth
*7pm 4 eggs and 3 tbs of whole milk organic plain yogurt, one crushed siliac supplement capsule. Occasionally 1/4 tsp of flax seed oil but we stopped when he started having soft stools. (My dog needs all the calories I can get into him. We just weren’t able to keep him bulked up on the 50/50 mixture alone, so we’ve added the eggs and scramble them in yogurt. We also dollop a little more on top of his scrambled eggs after they cool to ensure he gets some good bacteria in his digestive tract.)
3 drops of Carnivora
1 and 1/2 cups of 50/50 mixture and 2 crushed apricot kernels
