As you may have heard I was diagnosed with bone cancer and had my front leg amputated a couple of weeks ago. I am now on chemo. Mom wants to put me on some good supplements but she is getting really confused. Does any pup know what the best supplements are for bone cancer? How much do you give a dog the size of a greyhound? She found something called "K-9 Immunity" to be used with "K-9 Transfer Factor". Has anyone ever heard of it or used it? It's really expensive, but if it works it might be worth a try. Heres the link:

I'd really appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Lucky

Co-Q10!!!! You can get it at any healthfood or pharmacy or grocery store. I was diagnosed with cancer 1 & 1/2 years ago with no protocol very fast and very aggressive. I'm still HERE!! Co-Q10 is good for all cancers. It's and immunity builder to help keep the cancer cells down. They give it to humans with heart disease and now chemo patients. We produce the enzyme but as we age we produce less and less. I swear by it.

I think it's 200mg but I'll check when I get home. I tried to get the highest concentrate. D-Day weighs about 120 Lbs.
They found the cells in his leg. You can see his fat back leg in his picture. They told me his cancer runs through the system like bone cancer but he has yet to develope any masses since diagnosed so we'll keep paws crossed that you get the same results that we did.

Lucky, before you start any supplements, double check with your oncologist. I am assuming you will be going through chemo, and depending on how they need to attack the cancer cells, some supplements can counter react it.

Thanks, Cherry, Mom checks with the doctor on everything. She's a worry wart smile, she even watches me breathe when I'm sleeping. We don't have a holisic vet so there are no ideas forthcoming. I just thought that if I got some ideas here on Dogster ( where there is a proliferation of them smile ), then Mom could gather them all up and talk it over with the doctor before she added anything to my diet. She even showed him the list of ingredients for my diet and he thought it was great. (In fact, I think it made him hungry.big laughbig laughbig laugh )

Lucky,
When my Cleo had lymphoma I found a great online support group, they have tons of info and there were alot of people there that had dogs with bone cancer. The people are great and do not judge you at all.
You should really check the group out, the website is http://forums.delphiforums.com/petcancer/start

Thanks so much for all your help. There is so much confusing information. out there. Of course, whatever I come up with I will definetely discuss with my oncologist. And no vaccinations, like Cherry said. Just what I need now, to suppress my immune system. I need to rebuild!

First of all, I`m so sorry to hear about your cancer Lucky, and the fact that you had to loose a leg frown That must have been more painful for your human parents to do than yourself, but it looks like you are adjusting very well to it!! I hope your cancer treatments go well.

Sorry, I don`t have advice on supplements, but if you are looking for some good supplements, then I highly recommend Dr. Goldstein`s book `The Nature of Animal Healing.` He has one of the best cancer success rates in the country, and seems to really know which supplements work the most. His speciality is cancer, he treats all types, and the book lists the treatments for many of them. I know he uses glandular therapy, and works a lot from blood sample analysis, but I don`t know what in particular he gives for bone cancer. His book is very interesting!! My friend`s dog did a complete recovery with his treatments, despite being given only 6 months by all the other vets. He hosts a radio show as well through Martha Stewart, where you can call in and ask questions. I don`t remember when it is on though. There is still hope, so don`t give up!! big grin
