My 7 1/2 year old lab was diagnosed w cancer. He just had tumor removed and we are waiting on results of biopsy to tell us what stage it is. There was no blood vessels attached and doctor got as much skin around as he could. We found another lump last night and will have checked on Monday. We are desparate to keep him with us just few more years. We found on internet product called NuVet Plus which is suppose to eliminate the cancer. Just curious if anyone out there has tried this product?? I'm skeptical but want to save my baby.

I'm guessing you mean a mast cell tumor. In which case you need to wait for it to be graded and for the other lump to be evaluated for the prognosis. Lower grade tumors can often be excised completely. Chemotherapy is often recommended for grade 2 or 3 mast cell tumors with prognosis depending on location, staging, and treatment. No internet product is going to eliminate this type of cancer. Please get a referral to an oncologist once you get your results.

yes, mast cell tumor. Cooper goes back Monday to have his leg checked and I was going to ask the vet about the NuVet stuff. I'm with you on the NuVet stuff, it wont cure his cancer. Guess I need to be patient here and wait to see what prognosis of lump is. Keep fingers crossed for me that it's stage 1.

You may consider a diet change. There are lots of ideas about diets to help the body fight cancer. Your vet could even consult a nutrition service at a university for you.

When an owner finds a bump or lump on a dog's body, it's best to start by taking a closer look. Whenever a mass is found on a dog, a visit to the veterinary clinic is essential so that the veterinarian can examine the pet, diagnose the dog's lump and prescribe the appropriate treatment.

It's hard to trust any product that can remove cancer. I don't want to spoil anything but I don't think there is a cancer. Our family dog died of cancer and we did everything to let him live but that cancer really is deadly. I suggest you just let your dog live his life to the fullest with you.
Cardigan Welsh Corgis and German Shorthaired Pointer dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don't even know we have.

3 years ago our vet removed a bleeding tumor off of our Miss Piggy's abdomen. The test result was Hemangiosarcoma with clear margins. We were told her future was uncertain, but usually major blood organs were involved with this type of cancer and the prognosis was guarded. Numerous other tumors began appearing all over her body. Our groomer suggested we try the Canine vitamins. The tumors continue to appear but after about 4-6 weeks of growth, they begin to shrink away. We continue to enjoy and laugh at our dog's antics as we are blessed with her good health this past 3 years and hope that we will have several more cancer-free years with her. Thank you for the production of this wonderful product. ____________________________________________________________ Dog Kennels, Chicken Coops, Dog Cages, Rabbit Hutches, Dog Crates

Many humans are turning to alternative cancer treatments after the oncologists tell them that the chemo is no longer working, and some are choosing to go to alternative medicine MD's before treatment with radiation or chemotherapy. Sometimes even people who were given weeks or months to live have been cured with natural alternative treatments. I am treating an old dog (10 yr old, ninety lb. labrador) with AHCC mushroom, Flax Hull lignans, and Sr. Grand Flex Plus (horse mix of MSM, Vits. C, E, Aloe, and other joint supplements: since my dog is so large, I use twice the amount recommended for dogs). I shared this with a person who was taken off chemotherapy (Dr. said the chemo was not working anymore) and found that he was also taking the activated mushroom and lignans under the guidance of an Alternative Med. Doctor and doing much better. His Oncologist is amazed with his checkups and wishes to continue recording his treatment and progress with the other doctor! I had also tried some supplement with Shark cartilage, but after a week the dog obviously felt worse on it. So I discontinued anything with that ingredient. It is possible that the shark material has some other mineral or substance that this dog was sensitive to. Just a pet's consultation with an oncologist can be too expensive for some people. Are those who suggest oncology and chemo for our pets saying that children of working class families and elderly people on social security or people on disability incomes should not have pets? My vet is very kind about doing what he can to help me and my dogs and cats, and knows that not everyone can afford specialists and expensive treatments. As a cancer survivor, I am well aware that quality of life often means choosing to not continue with medical cancer cures, but sometimes using pain control, nutrition and even exercise to keep life quality as good as possible. We have to look at these issues with our animals as well.
