Mammary Gland Cancer

This is a cancer affecting the mammary glands that is most commonly seen in entire female cats (although it can also be seen in male cats and spayed female cats). The tumour commonly affects more than one of the mammary glands, which often develop multiple firm swellings or nodules, and the tumours commonly cause ulceration of the skin. This tumour commonly spreads to the local lymph nodes and can also spread to the lungs.

Maritime Pine Bark Extract

Maritime Pine Bark Extract is my primary immune system tonic for all my feline cancer patients for it is due to failings within the fundamental levels of the immune system that cause all cancerous processes to get started.

Mast Cell Cancer Support

Mast cell tumors (also called mastocytomas, mast cell sarcomas) are usually benign but potentially malignant neoplasms of cats. These tumors may occur in cats of any age (average 8-10 yr). They may occur anywhere on the body surface skin as well as in internal organs, Liver, Spleen & Blood & Gastro intestinal tract are a few of the most common sites.

Squamous Cell Cancer

Squamous cell carcinoma is a cancer of the skin. Exposure to sunlight is one trigger-factor for this cancer and it is seen more commonly in white cats, and cats kept in hot sunny countries. The tumour commonly affects the nose or the ears and can initially look like a small scratch or wound that won't heal. Spread (metastasis) of these tumours is uncommon but local lymph nodes are sometimes affected.
