The Number One Way to Cure Canine Cancer

Updated: February 5th, 2019

These days, there is so much information out there about cancer in dogs.  Some is good, and some is not that hot.   If you dig, you will find enough to make your head spin.

You will get the basics from your vet or oncologist. These are what I call The Big Three, and consist of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.  This is conventional cancer care.

Then we have more  “alternative” treatments, including special diets and supplements.  Go further into alternative cancer care and you find Neoplasine, ozone, IV vitamin C, high doses of certain bioflavanoids, touch therapies, mind-body fields like psychoneuroimmunology, chronotherapy, and more.

The cutting edge advances in both these big areas are covered in The Dog Cancer Survival Guide.

Many of the comments I receive on this blog are from concerned dog lovers who are trying to come to an action plan that makes sense.  They are often faced with trying to make lemonade from life’s juiceless lemons.

In dealing with this difficult struggle, sometimes the best choices are unclear.  However, there is a single statement that I believe few who know what they are talking about would deny.  It involves the one treatment that is most likely to cure a dog of cancer.

The number one way to cure canine cancer, at the present moment, is surgical removal of cancer cells.

None of the other techniques or approaches are as effective.

Now, this does not necessarily mean that you will select surgery as the treatment for your dog.  There are life quality factors to consider.  Some tumors cannot be removed without harming the body.  Some dogs have other issues that make surgery impossible.

But folks, this is the bottom line.  Get the cancer cells out.

Neither diet, supplements, chemotherapy, radiation, or any other facet of cancer care in dog is as effective as this single, old-school approach.

    Andy has been living with TCC for a year now, never having conventional medicine I have been treating him myself, just by reading everything I could get my hands on & joining the Cancer Compass forum. I have had him on Salvestrols, PolyMVA, AHCC, 4LifeTransfer Factor Plus & RM-10 Ultra plus BioPreparation & a raw meat diet with steamed v-gs. I still see some blood in his wee, but It looks like the tumor has stayed the same size & hasn’t travelled. His weight hasn’t changed or his energy levels decreased. But I still stress every day just knowing it’s in there.

      i might suggest reading the Guide? Have you looked in to apocaps and neoplasene, among other things, to discuss with your vet?
      The blood may also be infection even with a tumor, so i’d get your vet involved…

    Dear Dr Dressler,

    I have made the decision not to treat Grover with Apocaps, chemotherapy or anything that has a pro-oxidising effect. And most of Grover’s supplements are anti-oxidants.

    With approval from his Naturopath, I have been giving him an immune-boosting, anti-oxidising, anti-inflammatory and anti-infective liquid formula containing herbal extracts of:

    Milk Thistle

    Blackmores Acidophilus
    Enzo Professional Pine Bark Extract
    Reishi Mushroom Extract

    Blackmores Echinacea ACE Plus Zinc
    Blackmores PCIP (Potassium Chloride; Iron Phosphate)

    And here is his diet:

    1 kilo cooked chicken breast, diced
    415 g John West Pink Salmon
    3 free range scrambled eggs
    1 cup cooked brown rice
    2 cups processed raw, frozen vegetables
    1/2 cup yoghurt
    1/4 cup flaxseed oil

    Filtered water

    Warmest wishes,
    Andrea and Grover
    Victoria, Australia
