Dog Cancer: Supporting the Rest of the Body

2/9/2020

As a pet parent, you need to stay strong when your fur baby is diagnosed with cancer. Some cancers are life-threatening while others aren’t. Either way, all cancers have a negative impact on the body no matter if it’s life-threatening or not. Modern medicine has been successful in treating cancer but it often has severe side effects and low remission rates. Supporting the rest of the body is essential to successfully treating cancer holistically or with modern medicine.

What is canine cancer?  
Almost everyone has heard of the disease cancer but not many know exactly what it is. Cancer forms when cells grow out of control and invade surrounding tissue. The disease has the ability to spread throughout the body or remain localized in one area. It’s known to be multifactorial which means it doesn’t have a single cause but the environment and heredity seem to be common causes among canines.  


Here are three excellent ways to support the rest of the body after a cancer diagnosis:
 
According to the National Canine Cancer Foundation, the following list is the top 10 warning signs your dog might have cancer: 

  • Healthy diet – Provide your dog with a healthy diet that includes organic food sources and a balanced diet. Vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids are needed to help keep your dog’s body strong while they go through treatment.
  • Homeopathic remedies – Homeopathic remedies such as Echinacea, Neoplasen, Carnivora, and Viscum have been known to help with treatment. 
  • Boost the spirit – The mind, body, and spirit are connected which means when one of them is out of order or sick the others suffer along. Cheer your fur baby up with some new toys, playtime every day, short walks, a comfortable place to sleep and lots of love, attention, and affection. The positive energy will help boost their mood and improve their overall feeling in their body and mind.
