Default Some Common Signs of Cancer in Dogs

Written by Dr. Andrew Jones

I strongly urge you to do a basic
At Home Pet health exam on your pets
once a week.

It's ALWAYS better to catch it early.

Here are some of the more common signs:

1. Abnormal FIRM swellings that stay and continue to grow
2. Sores that DO NOT heal- they continue to weep
3. Distended abdomen ( stomach)
4. Unexplained We*ight Loss
5. Loss of Appetite
6. Foul smelling oral odor/difficulty swallowing/drooling
7. Enlarged Lympg nodes
8. Chronic vomiting/diarrhea
9. Unexplained discharge/bleeding
10. Chronic cough/respiratory difficulty
11. Reluctance to exercise/weakness
12. Chronic progressive lameness
13. Difficulty urinating/defecating

If you dog or cat has any of these signs,
do your own exam, and then have your Veterinarian
perform a full physical exam.

Then IF your pet is to be diagnosed with cancer,
ensure that you are aware of ALL of the alternatives-
NOT just the conventional options.

Here are a few of the alternatives that I discuss in
my book- there are many more being added to my
new soon to be released Complete Home Study Course 2.0

FLAVONOIDS. These are compounds in a class of their own.
They compose the thousands of structures that give the bright
color to fruits and vegetables. They are antioxidants as well
as having anti-cancer properties. These include flavones,(apigenin),
isoflavones (genistein), and flavanols (quercetin). Purchase a
mixed bioflavonoid product that contains polyphenols, particularly
EGCG (epigallocatechin-gallate), which is the specific flavonoid
isolated from green tea. The dose for a 10 lb dog or cat is 250 mg daily.

FATTY ACIDS ARE ESSENTIAL. Omega 3 fatty acids are great anti-inflammatories
and have been shown to prevent the spread of cancer. Flax is the best
source for dogs: the dose is 1 tsp per cup of dog food. For cats, the
liquid form is the only option, and they should receive 500 mg twice
daily of salmon oil or a supplement such as EFA Caps purchased from
your veterinarian.

VITAMIN A. This has cytotoxic effects (cancer-cell killing) at high
doses. The dose is 400 IU per lb of body weight daily.

ARGININE. This amino acid appears to enhance immune function and may
inhibit the growth of some tumors. The dose is 250 mg per 10 lbs of
body weight daily.

GLUTAMINE. This amino acid may be helpful in inhibiting tumor growth
as well as in dealing with some of the adverse effects of chemotherapy.
The dose is 500 mg per 10 lbs of body weight daily.

COLLOIDAL SILVER. I have had many a client tell me about successfully
using Colloidal Silver to heal their pets wounds, along with cancers.
It is a liquid suspension of minute particles of silver. You can get
it at natural health food stores and pharmacies. The dose is teaspoon
per 10 lbs twice daily.


P.S. You really never know WHAT will happen- so enjoy your
pet now, and appreciate them today.

Very good post Heather - I did find that my last dog who died with lymphoma had an excessive thirst and urination as well as loss of weight then going off their usual food. This doesn't always indicate cancer because Arbie has had it happen a few times but it does indicate the body isn't functioning properly and needs further investigation.

Fingers crossed so far neither of my babies show any of these symptoms.
