He was impressed with the herb regimen that i started him on thanks to you! He started Lucas on fish oil, it suppose to help with inflammation. We'll be starting him on Chi Tonic soon and He wants to do anabolic steroid injections after his weight is up a little more. It's suppose to give Lucas the muscle back and a little more pep. If all goes well, then acupuncture. It's baby steps but aleast it's going up.

You sound like you are on the right track! Im so happy you have a holistic Vet in your area, that could make all the difference.

Im glad also all of those months/years of researching holistic therapies for cancer has impressed somebody lol No seriously I was glad to help and it made me smile a holistic vet was impressed

He was 70lbs but he's now 50lbs and it breaks my heart. It's a challenge to get him to eat anything, feeding him by hand is the only way. So i brought him in to get a scope of his throat, stomach and intestines. The vet said he had severe ulcers in his stomach but no blockages. They biopsied several things and now.........they came back as lymphomia cancer. The treatment choice is prednisone and either a cvi drug? or chemo therapy. The chemo scares me cause i don't want him to go through any more sickness then he's already been through....he's such a sweet and kind dog. Even though he's very sick, he still has such a great demeanor. I just don't know what to do, this is breaking my heart.
If anyone has any advice, i'm open to hear it. If anyone has gone through Chemo or lymphoma treatment , i want to hear about it , the good and bad.
This is the hardest decision of my entire life.
