Prostate Cancer Support for Dogs - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Prostate Cancer is becoming much more common in companion dogs nowadays, but it is still rare. These days, we see approximately one case of prostate cancer in one hundred cancer reports. Ten years ago it was closer to one in five hundred...

As with all canine cancers the reasons for increased incidence ranges from improved Veterinary medicine and diagnosis through to the influence on mammal health caused by increased environmental pollution.

It seems that, as with all cancers, a generalised breakdown of metabolic and immune systems and the bodily processes involved in cell health maintenance, underlies the development of Prostate cancer.

Dietary changes

Commercial pet food only became available around a hundred years ago. Canned horse meat was introduced just after the first World War. Canned and dry dog food is certainly more convenient and often cheaper but as with most 'fast food', it isn't always better. Feeding a healthful, natural and varied diet to your dog can be easier than you think and an important part of healing your dog. 

The best food for your dog may vary depending on his individual needs. The basic diet, however, should consist of mostly succulent, raw, meaty bones with the addition of some organ meat, plus a little muscle meat, throw in a raw egg, portion of mashed banana or grated apple or 1 dessert spoon of yoghurt.

Vegetables can also provide additional nutrition. However because of the design of the dog's teeth and his digestive system, he probably won't be able to derive much nutrition from fruits and vegetables unless they are cut very fine, mashed, or lightly cooked and blended. A good way of serving vegetables/fruit is the fibre remains from making your own, mixed with minced raw meat.

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.

Prostate Cancer Support mix
This is given in conjunction with a powerful antioxidant extract derived from the bark of the Maritime Pine Tree, (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 Prostate Cancer Support Mix can be used in conjunction with other alternative medicines or with orthodox medical treatments such as surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

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 Herbal, clinical Consultant.
