My Dog Tommy May Have Oral Melanoma
Coming to you from Italy, US citizen abroad, and today I am feeling down for obvious reasons.
Firstly, let me thank those who created this site for giving us a place to share experiences, ask advice and lend and receive moral support.
My dog Tommy, an 11 year old Italian scent hound, had developed a growth on his right upper jaw the size of a small marble.
Today we removed it with a fraction of the jaw and surrounding tissue.
We are waiting for biopsy results in 7 days but if it is melanoma then I have no time to lose. I am ruling out chemo or radiation and want to go natural.
I was thinking of giving him apricot seeds, as these supposedly have cancer fighting laetrile.
I have read the posts on this forum and will certainly change his diet from ground meat and rice (homemade food) to what I have read. Any suggestions? He is a 35 lb. dog, so I am not sure of dosages.
Also I see the use of vitamin C and aloe, can anyone attest to this?
Tommy and I appreciate all the help and attention.
All the best to everyone and their loved animals.
