Another Success Story From A Doggeared Reader!

Last night I got not one, but two responses from people who came across my site who are also cooking for their dogs to defeat cancer. Kylie shared this about her dog Bear. The image below is from:

I too have had great success with my boy and his diet. Bear was diagnosed with mast cell grade 3 cancer 11 months ago, they wanted to start chemo ASAP. They said chemo would give him 1-2 years but with no chemo they gave him 3-5 months max! He wasn’t showing signs of sickness so I thought why risk him getting sick from chemo. So I completely changed his diet.2334aaf77efaea31fee724a613e2b153
When he wakes up he has 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese with 1 tablespoon flax seed, then he will have 3 k9 immunity chews. After we walk its more cottage cheese n flax seed oil. For lunch he gets boiled veggies with flax seed oil, fossil flour (I’m assuming she is referring to Silica) and flax seed powder mixed, 2 apricot kernels and organic free range chicken with turmeric, garlic and ginger. When I get home from work he has cottage cheese and flax seed oil again, then an hour later he has dinner which is the veggies and chicken again.
So here we are 11 months on and he is doing great, he has so much energy on our 4km walks he overtakes my other dog, you wouldn’t think he was the one battling cancer.
Also this might help you Sue! He was suffering from arthritis for about 2 years. After long walks he would limp for 1-2 days. I was getting him injections every 2nd week but didn’t really see much difference. I then tried chews which did help a little. But then I found turmeric! I add fresh turmeric and also powder turmeric to his main meals. Now no limps at all and I think it’s thanks to the turmeric. Maybe you could give that a try also Google it?

Congratulations to you and Bear!

Doggeared Reader Contribution on how Cancer-Fighting Diet Really Works to Stave Off Cancer!

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: bullmastiff-dog-painting-svetlana-novikova

“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)
– Glucosamine
– 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.
