Radiotherapy Support for Dogs - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


Many dog owners contact us here at McDowell's Herbal seeking input into their decisions related to starting or continuing Radiation Therapy 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 Radiotherapy Support Mix, for dogs with Cancer.

We understand the place for Radiotherapy (in Canine Cancer) is to directly attack rapidly growing cancer cells using beams of radiation. Radiation as we know damages tissue and the hope of radiotherapy is that it will damage fast growing cancer cells more quickly than normal cells. There are some cancers which are ideally suited to Radio therapy given in a careful finite program.

We also recognise (and clients report) that radiotherapy can put a serious strain on a dogs metabolism and immune system with nasty side effects sometimes resulting. These side effects include, but are not limited to, hair loss, skin itchiness at the site, vomiting and diarrhoea. McDowell's Herbal Radiotherapy Support is developed to allow the Radiotherapy to do its work while minimising and counteracting these side effects.

McDowell's Herbal dispensary staff prepares a Radiotherapy Support Mix which includes concentrated extracts of; St Mary's Thistle, Kelp, Yarrow, Thuja, Elecampane, Fennel, Sage, along with the Bach Flowers, Olive, Scleranthus, Gorse and Wild Oat.

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 Herbals, clinical Consultant.
