Osteosarcoma and Bone Cancer Support for Dogs - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Osteosarcoma is one of the most common canine cancers. It has risen from being almost unknown 50 years ago to epidemic proportions nowadays. It is now affecting younger and younger dogs especially those of the bigger breeds. Why this has occurred is open to debate.

Many professionals (alternative and orthodox Veterinarians) believe that human intervention in and changes to natural breeding and raising, over vaccination, diet and feeding practices as well as exercise patterns have contributed to the surge in canine Osteosarcoma.

Dogs systems are now called upon to digest far too much processed food since the advent of commercial dog feed in the 1950's. Also, their eating patterns have been subverted by over feeding so as to deny the long periods of fasting which they previously experienced in nature and which allowed their metabolism to clear toxins. In addition the domesticated dog is almost never allowed to bury and retrieve a bone and many never have raw meat in their diet at all. This change in diet and feeding practice after almost 5000 years living with humans can be seen as sudden and detrimental to canine health.

Additionally, there is an argument that inbreeding in certain species has set up a situation where both impaired immunity and a reduced gene pool in so called ‘pure breed’ dogs make them dangerously susceptible to illness and congenital disease.

We find that, on the whole, the people who approach us for Osteosarcoma cancer support are often the most caring of owners and many of them have been trying to do the right thing by their dogs and some are not even guilty of any of the problems canvassed above. Despite that they face the same awful dilemmas that all pet owners face when they hear and read the diagnosis of 'cancer'.

McDowell’s Herbal dispensary staff prepares a specific Osteosarcoma Cancer Program which includes concentrated extracts of; Bladderack, Elecampane, Equisetum, Golden Seal, Wormwood, Parsley, Yarrow and Rosehips along with the Bach Flower Remedies Oak, Olive, Pine, Water Violet, Walnut and Wild Oat.

This Osteosarcoma Cancer Mix, is given in conjunction with a powerful antioxidant extract derived from the bark of the Maritime Pine Tree, or Maritime Pine Bark Extract. Together the two support mixes have the potential to slow the growth of the cancer and boost overall health. In addition they can assist in healing localized irritation and inflammation which may have resulted from the cancer.

McDowell’s Herbal Osteosarcoma Cancer Support Mix can be used in conjunction with other alternative medicines or with orthodox medical treatments such as surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

The important distinction between our herbal approach and that of traditional medicine is that; here we are aiming to boost the robust health maintenance and disease fighting systems already at work in every dog, not just remove or kill cancerous cells – hoping they don’t return.

We expect noticeable change and reduced symptoms in the first four to six weeks of having your dog on our Herbal program and ask that you submit regular reports to your McDowell’s Herbalist.
