I want to share a success story with you all from Anna, a reader who recently found my website. Below she details her situation and protocol:

“Hi Sue, your blog is amazing! I want to share my current situation with your readers as I know how hard it is to find sources of information on what pet owners are doing to help their pets with Cancer. My Bullmastiff boy, Luka was diagnosed with Histiocytic Sarcoma a month ago. He has had arthritis in his leg joint for a few years now but his limp recently got worse and his joint was swollen. Then I noticed a lump (size of a tennis ball) pop out on his chest. I took him to the vet the same day where we did a biopsy and that’s when he was diagnosed with Histiocytic Sarcoma in the lymph node. We also found out that he has it on the joint as well. We were going to go ahead with radiation as it was localized, but during his CT Scan, they found tiny growths in his lungs as well, the largest being less than 3 millimeters in diameter. The oncologist suggested we switch to Chemo instead of radiation which might buy him 3 to 6 months. In the meantime, I have done a lot of research and started him on Dr. Budwig protocol right away which he has been on for almost a month now. I also cook all of his food and took him off of all kibble and canned foods. The lymph node is half the size now and he stopped limping. He runs around with our Doberman and doesn’t seem to be in any pain. Here is the diet that I currently have him on which is very similar to yours:
– 2 stocks of Broccoli
– 4 large carrots
– half medium size cauliflower
– 4 lbs of Chicken Gizzards or Chicken Livers
– 2 Soup bones with meat on them
– 4 cloves of Garlic
(This feeds both of them for 2 days – 4 meals total for 2 large breed dogs)
I cook the bones to ensure the bone marrow is part of the soup base for about 45 min. I chop all vegetables and cook everything in Distilled Water (we live on an acreage and have well water so I am eliminating all possible contaminants). I also cook them salmon or halibut, chicken breasts and give it to them as treats and use the fish skin to wrap their vitamins.
I give him 3 tablespoons of cold pressed, organic flaxseed oil mixed in with 6 tablespoons of 1% Cottage Cheese (Liberte brand as it’s non homogenized). I mix the cottage cheese with the flaxseed oil with a fork to ensure it’s all blended together and feed it to them before the meals so it gets absorbed on an empty stomach. I also squirt liquid Phytoplankton (from Natural Health Food Store) – adult dose to the mixture, but don’t mix it in. They seem to love it.
As for vitamins:
– Vitamin E
– Vitamin Ester C (instead of Vitamin C as dogs naturally produce vitamin C so additional Vitamin C will cause kidney stones)
– Krill Oil
He is also on Deramax (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory) for joint swelling and Gapapentin for pain but I have been giving him half the dose of what was originally recommended by the vet and he’s been on those for over a year now.
After reading your protocol and doing some research, I will add B17, Carnivora and Essiac Tea to his diet as well. I will keep you posted on his progress. Thanks again for all of the great information!”
This is so wonderful! I hope all who see this are given even more hope in the plight against canine cancer.
