This formula supplies a wide range of antioxidant ingredients such as mushrooms, vitamins A, C, E, Coenzyme Q10, selenium and green tea. Many dog parents have found this formula to be effective in helping to treat and prevent cancer. Dogs with other health problems such as autoimmune disorders, including allergies, liver and kidney problems, cardiovascular dysfunctions, and immune system stress can also benefit from this supplement.

The two most common antioxidants for use in cancer are vitamin C and vitamin E. Both of these fight free radicals, and help promote a healthy immune system. Generally these are given in higher doses, called mega doses. Generally I recommend 50 IU to 100 IU of vitamin E per ten pounds of body weight daily, and 100 mg to 200 mg of vitamin C per ten pounds of body weight daily. In high doses of vitamin C, using the buffered variety (ascorbate) may be more easily tolerated in high doses. Give both of these vitamins with food. There is some question as to whether giving antioxidants during chemotherapy or radiation is helpful or harmful, as both of these treatments produce free radicals, to fight the cancer. Currently there are studies on both sides of this issue, and the general consensus is that no one knows for certain if they are helpful or harmful. Nor is it clear if they are simply not given on the day of treatment, or during the entire course of treatment. Two studies came out recently on breast cancer, one showing antioxidants help and the other showing they are harmful, so it is a confusing issue.

Dogs can synthesize their own Vitamin A from beta-carotene found in vegetables. In its pure form, however, Vitamin A can be toxic, so be cautious if you are using a Vitamin A supplement rather than supplementing with vegetables high in beta-carotene (such as carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato or collards). This includes if you are using Cod Liver Oil as a Vitamin A supplement. If in doubt, err on the side of caution. Also, according to Dr. Martin Goldstein in his book, The Nature of Animal Healing, some research suggests that Vitamins A and E may compete for absorption in the intestines. As a result, he recommends not giving Vitamin E and A supplements at the same time.The second thing you can do is make sure your dog is getting maintenance vitamin D levels. My personal opinion supports a balanced multivitamin for dogs with cancer. It has been shown that vitamin D deficiency does bad things like increase certain cancers, like colon cancer in mice. . I have read stories that this works on dogs also. You don’t have to worry about diarrhea as with the oral mega doses of Vitamin C because it is encapsulated and bypasses the stomach. The fact of the matter is that the pharmaceutical companies donate HUGE money to the FDA. They will never fund a clinical trial on a natural substance because they cannot patent it and mark it up over 5000%! They rather create harmful chemicals for you to put in your body to create side effects that you will need even more of their drugs to treat. There really is not one drug (besides the antibiotic) that can CURE anything. They only treat and manage symptoms. Sad…isn’t it? Watch “Run from the Cure” on You Tube and tell me what you think.
