Bladder Cancer Support for Dogs

Bladder Cancer is not as common as the Incontinence and Kidney problems that arise due to aging, structural prolapse and/or chronic infection in dogs.

Chemotherapy Support for Dogs

Many dog owners contact us here at McDowell's Herbal seeking input into their decisions related to starting or continuing Chemotherapy for their dog with cancer. We are always happy to work with them and their treating Vet to get the best outcome for their 'four-legged friend'. Our Herbal consultants believe that a fundamental cause of diseases like Cancer is a collapse of the immune response. To boost immunity McDowell's Herbal consultants (almost always) recommend that dog owners use a powerful antioxidant - Maritime Pine Bark Extract in conjunction with their Chemotherapy Support, for dogs with Cancer.

Fibrosarcoma Cancer Support for Dogs

Fibrosarcoma is commonly referred to as a "hard tumour." It usually originates from connective tissue such as those associated with cartilage, bone or muscle.

Skin tumours are common in dogs. To the best of our knowledge there are about 20 different types of skin cancers and they can be benign or malignant. The tumours can arise from either deeper or surface layers of skin or the fibrous or fatty tissues. Most benign tumours grow slowly, are well defined and do not appear to be inflamed whereas malignant ones seem to grow rapidly, ulcerate and sometimes invade adjacent tissue.
