Cancer in Dogs

It's heartbreaking when you receive a cancer diagnosis...

We received our first cancer diagnosis in 2020 and our second in 2021.  Cancer rates in dogs are high and I've always known that this devastating disease who land at our doorstep someday but I still wasn't prepared.

 

I've learned a lot about canine cancer and share everything that I'm doing to extend or dogs' lives.  Sydney didn't survive her diagnosis (it was caught too late).  However, my experience with Sydney helped me catch Scout's cancer early and he's doing great! Even his oncologist is impressed by his progress.

Hemangiosarcoma (HSA)

On August 5, 2020, we received the devastating news that our dog, Sydney, had cancer and it had spread. Five weeks later, we said goodbye to our sweet girl.  I documented our experience to save you time, give you hope, and share what to expect.

Along with your veterinarian, you'll probably want a support group.  I recommend Hemangiosarcoma Diet & Supplement Protocols for dogs – A holistic Approach.

Canine Lymphoma

In February, 2021, Scout was diagnosed with lymphoma.  I discovered a lump in his neck region, which were his very swollen lymph nodes.  Unlike our experience with Sydney, I caught Scout's cancer early.

I chose the CHOP chemotherapy protocol because Scout's form of cancer is most  responsive to chemo.  He went into remission within the first month on chemo.

SUPPLEMENTS FOR DOGS WITH CANCER

Our experience with Scout and lymphoma has been amazing and educational.  Scout continuously astounds us and his doctors – he's doing great!

The following are the supplements that I add to Scout's diet that do the following:

  • support the immune system
  • kill cancer cells
  • protect healthy cells
  • support liver health
  • lessons chemo side effects

Our oncologist told us not to add antioxidants to Scout's diet – these supplements are working!
