Cancer

Post  Kylarsmom on 9/3/2012, 12:02 pm

Kylar is the love of my life , I got him and his sister Brittney when they were 5 weeks old….the day I became a mother =) had no idea that’s what was gonna happen but it did……they were Born on Dec. 1st 2002 and will be 10 this year =) earlier this year I had to take Brittney to the ER because she was having seizures, she was put on some really strong antibiotics and shes fine now. Kylar has had probably 4 fatty cysts removed over the years, because they were just getting to big, he only weighs 20 lbs. but they weren’t anything serious. He had something come up on his peepee<------ (I have a 3 year old, its what we call it) about a month ago, but I thought no big deal its just probably another cysts, and im not gonna have it removed now because im sick of putting him through surgery. Well last week I took him and sis to the vet to have their nails cut, and the doc poked it and looked at it under a scope, and it was CANCER. A cancer tumor…………. He took him to surgery right away and removed it and found another one close to it. The thing about this is, it spreads and can come back…… I Love this dog with all my heart, and I will do anything to make sure his last few years are good and he is not in any pain…. I will not let cancer eat him up and I will not put him through another surgery. PERIOD. Wondering if anyone has heard or knows anything about how CANNIBAS OIL, or anything thing else that is natural and cures dogs from cancer? any info would be greatly appreciated I will spend all my free time researching a cure for my dog, there has NEVER in my life, been anything more heavy on my heart. Thanks, Kylars mom

Check out the Cancer Diet by Lew Olsen. Her book Raw and Natural Nutrition for Dogs has the chapter in it about cancer diets.

Do you know what type of cancer it is? Dogs do much better with chemotherapy than most humans do. We have done it with several rescue pugs and had a good response...no sickness on the part of the dog and it gave them several more good years.

There isn't enough info there for me to give you any advice. Here are some questions that would help:

*What kind of cancer? Melanoma, Mast Cell Tumour (MCT), etc

*Did the vet give you a stage/grade--1 to 4 usually.

*Did the vet talk about the margins of the surgical site? Clean, dirty, etc.

While some cancers are death sentences, not all are.

Yes, we need a lot more info before we can give advice. If you are talking about Mast Cell Tumours it's not all bad news and chemo is very effective. I had a Pug go through it after an MCT removal (she was 11) and she lived another 6 years! It's nowhere as bad with side effects on dogs as it is on humans. And I wouldn't recommend cannibis oil for your dog. The effects on dogs could be very, very different than the effects on humans and there is no data written for dosage rates or indications and results for use.

Good thoughts for you and your boy. Hope you come back and help us to help you.

So sorry to hear that your boy has cancer! We've been through several different types of cancer with our pugs - osteosarcoma (bone), oral melanoma, insulinoma, and I currently have a foster with transitional cell carcinoma (bladder cancer). Unfortunately, I am well versed in cancer treatments! Feel free to ask away. There is a thread here with lots of good info and links: http://www.pugauthority.com/t5472-cancer
