Alternative Cancer Treatment Support for my Dog

Disclaimer: This is my experience as a layman in caring for my dog who had cancer. It is not intended as medical or professional advice.

Our dog, Virginia, had a recurrent liposarcoma (cancer of the fatty tissue). We were able to extend her life for many years. The following is what worked and didn’t work for her.

We found Virginia on the side of a back country road in Virginia starving to death. With some local investigation we discovered that it was a common practice to dump unwanted animals along with the trash at the dumpsters there. When she was about 5 Virginia developed an autoimmune disease. I personally believe that it was the combination of the autoimmune condition with having her inoculations always injected on the side of her neck that led to the first formation of a tumor right at the site where she would get her shots. (Most vets will vary the place where they inject.)

Virginia underwent a total of 3 operations over 5 years. We elected not to do radiation.

What Worked:

Diet: We made homemade food for Virginia. Typically it was thinly chopped vegetables such as zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potato, carrots, celery, etc. as the base. Then meat was added to comprise 10-20% of the food. Sometimes a little whole grains were added. It was cooked like a stew with “No Chicken Broth” added to make it more soupy. We would often make a big batch and freeze some of it when we were too busy to cook more often. She ate twice a day. She was part beagle and a master beggar so she did get an occasional unhealthy treat.

Supplements: She was about 40 lbs.
daily vitamin, usually “Missing Link.”
1/2 tsp. of Ursolic acid 2x a day in her meal (purported in other countries to shrink tumors)
1 capsule of Hydrazine Sulfate 2x a day in her meal (purported in other countries to slow tumor growth)
Chinese Ginseng in tablet form, 2 tablets 2x a day (strengthens the Qi without strengthening the pathogen)

The following are other ideas from a knowledgeable Naturopath:
Vitamin B 17 (laetrile and amygdalin)
Powdered Greens: Earth and VitaMineral Greens , Doc Broc’s Power Plants
Graviola leaf and steam – said to attack only the cancer cells
Sprouts – especially cruciferous (broccoli, etc.). Always lightly steam to remove anti-digestive elements.

What didn’t work:
MMS, “Miracle Mineral Solution”, also known as “Master Mineral Solution” and “Miracle Mineral Supplement”. Someone had recommended this as an anti-cancer supplement. Her health went downhill immediately from taking this product.

  1. I’m so happy to read you were able to extend her life for many years! Thank you for putting this information out there for others to read. We are undergoing a similar situation with our AmStaff. Treating his cancer with a special anti-cancer diet, Essiac Tea and B-17, (apricot seeds.) I am keeping a blog about his progress and to post other findings on alternative cancer treatments as well. It is called http://doggeared.wordpress.com

    Keeping the information flowing! Thanks for sharing your blog. I am encouraged by your perseverance and bravery.
