Default Holistic care for sarcoma unknown grade after inconclusive biopsy

Hi all, I described Tyson's situation in a previous post.. long story sorta short.. tyson just turned 8. I noticed a bump on his paw(top of paw in between his digits) we had an aspiration done and it came back inconclusive , we went to vet number 2 and the aspiration came back as a connective tissue tumor(soft tissue sarcoma) the vet wasn't comfortable removing it due to the location , no extra skin to stitch it so it would be left a open wound but the margins would be really Dirty so we would need radiation .. he referred us to an oncologist, the oncologist did his bloodwork, urine and ultrasound. Everything came back perfect. They put him under to do a biopsy, he had stitches and was in a lot of pain for 2 weeks... well after all that the biopsy came back inconclusive ... so the oncologist recommended amputation, and we don't want to go that route. They also recommended chemo or radiation,However she mentioned that since the biopsy was inconclusive, without knowing the grade of the "bump" we man not need to have chemo or radiation. We have no clue if it's high or low grade due to the biopsy being inconclusive. I have an appt at another oncologist and at a holistic vet to c if anyone can possible give something to shrink it so it can be removed with clean margins. The oncologist mentioned that with chemo and radiation it won't shrink it but it could possibly stop it from growing. However she said that it may not work at all since we don't know the grade. I don't want to put my tyson thru all of this if we don't even know what we r looking at. he's happy and other the acid reflux since he was little, a few hystiocitomas that went away after aspirations, and this he's happy. He Doesn't even know it's there. Thank god it doesn't bother him or seem to be growing. I'm just curious if anyone has been to a holistic vet for a similar situation? Thanks

I would be placing him on medical grade CBD oil to help shrink the tumour.

Thx for that info. When I spoke with the holistic vet via phone she mentioned something like this and a capsule or supplement containing some kind of "super mushrooms" that have strong anti cancer properties. I'll read up on that and bring it up at my in office visit with her. I'll check out the link.

Have any of you personally used the CBD oil to shrink a sarcoma? I heard of taking it orally and applying it directly on the tumor if it has surfaced his skin .. I just don't want to apply it directly on hissarcoma because he will notice it and right now he doesn't even know that it's there so he Doesn't pick at it or lick it.

Also which one is best? I saw a few great options. Is that something I should bring up to the holistic vet?

If you are on FB, look for the dog group called The Holistic Boxer. There are many people in that's group who have used CBD oil to shrink tumours. If it is a cancerous tumour, you can at least get it small enough so that surgery is an option.

Many people have seen tumours disappear completely. Using a turmeric paste in the food daily and adding a mushroom complex is also suggested

I will definitely look into that. It is a sarcoma. They aren't sure as to which kind/ or the grade or any other info at that. Since the biopsy was inconclusive as was the first aspiration and the second aspiration showed soft tissue sarcoma and cancer cells)I haven't heard of the tumeric paste. I m sure the topical remedies work well probably better?... when applied directly to the tumor but I know if I draw any attention to it or apply anything on it he will notice it and begin to lick it and aggravate it more, possibly expose cancer cells. I hope the remedies have the same effect when taken orally. I'll check out the FB and investigate so I can bring it all up to the holistic vet. Thank u so much. I really appreciate ur feedback for Tyson.

I am sorry I just noticed you mentioned turmeric paste in his FOOD , I was thinking applied directly to the tumor . Oral method is def our best option.

Tyson had his holistic appt.. they also did acupuncture, I didn't think he would sit still for it but he did. We had to tell him to "leave it" a few times as he was getting annoyed that there were needles on him and he couldn't take them out lol she said if he wasn't comfortable we could take them out and stop.. we took home a tincture it is a mixture of many things including turmeric, she said that it can help shrink or stop the tumor from growing. She prescribed CBD for the same purpose. She wants us to start the tumeric mixture first, then in a week add the CBD into his daily regimen. we have to change his food to honest Kitchen base TURKEY as chicken isn't good with cancer. She gave us a tincture for inflammation also. I really really hope this helps to shrink or potentially stop the tumor from growing. I'm trying to think positive.
