    Alternative Medicine for Pet Cancers

    Adding this thread for alternative treatment for dog/cat cancers.

    Some good info out there on Artemisinin and mushrooms.

    This mushroom treatment looks pretty good. They tested it on hemangiosacrcomas.

    About time THEY do some serious testing of these alternative medicines/treatments as their regular treatments often fail!

    Other cancers may respond also.

    They sell this on amazon too. I just ordered some for me and my dog - I have Lyme Disease and this stuff is for immunity health too - so I'll give it a try.

    https://www.amazon.com/im-yunity/s?p...i%27m%20yunity

    Found this:

    "Coriolus versicolor(turkey tail mushroom, trametes versicolor, kawaratake, yun-zhi) is probably the best documented medicinal mushroom. An isolate derived from Coriolus versicolor, known as polysaccharide-K (PSK or PSP), is used in some countries as an adjunctive therapy for patients undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Also known by its brand name Krestin, it is intended to counteract the negative effect that many chemotherapeutic agents have on the immune system. A detailed scientific review of polysaccharide-K by the MD Anderson Cancer Center, reported 40 clinical and 55 animal studies have been conducted on this mushroom isolate.

    PSP in China and PSK in Japan, both mushroom extracts are government registered anticancer drugs, commonly used as a supplement to surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

    Compound Derived From a Mushroom Lengthens Survival Time in Dogs With Cancer, Penn Vet Study Finds
    PHILADELPHIA — Dogs with hemangiosarcoma that were treated with a compound derived from the Coriolus versicolor mushroom had the longest survival times ever reported for dogs with the disease. These promising findings offer hope that the compound may one day offer cancer patients — human and canine alike — a viable alternative or complementary treatment to traditional chemotherapies.

    Yunnan Baiyao Capsules

    I just had an interesting conversation with my vet.

    My vet prescribed Yunnan Baiyao for a dog with hemangiosacrcoma (my vet was told to give this by an animal cardiologist) - the dog is cured now! A follow up CT scan was done by the cardiologist and there are NO SIGNS of the tumor. They told the lady to stop the mushroom treatment (this mushroom stops bleeding from tumors and can cause strokes - that's why they said to get off of it.)

    Wow! This is amazing!

    According to Sarah Westall - Companion C60 is running a Dog Cancer trial, using 2 products together, 1 is a "magic" composition, other 1 has enhanced C60 formula.
    good things happening, but not done/reported yet...

    Follow up on Yunnan mushroom.. My vet has had many dog cancer patients on this...She has seen no clots, no side effects at all.

    She had a dog diagnosed with aggressive nose cancer who was given 3 months to live...he lived a full year once on Yunnan mushroom.

    My vet did not know mushrooms act synergistically..maybe the dog would have done better with adding a mushroom complex like Dr. Mercolas for dogs found on Amazon.

    I talked with my vet about what I'd discovered with mushrooms...sent her the research...

    Dog Cancer Treatment
    Wanted to pass this on to anyone who's dog has been diagnosed with cancer. I know 'western medicine' treatments can be hard on the dog, have poor results, are super expensive, etc.

    I found a second vet in my area who is using mushrooms and curing cancer in dogs. These are cases documented with CT scans, biopsies, etc.

    Just got back from an 'integrative' vet visit with my dog, Jazzy. Went in for arthritis/lumbar treatment/suggestions.

    I noted this vet had bottles of powdered mushrooms on her shelves...so I told her about my vet and her experience with Yunnan baiyao mushroom healing hemangiosarcoma in a dog (documented with CT scans before and after). And how my vet puts all of her cancer patients on it now.

    The vet we saw today said she had 6 dogs with cancer referred to her since she opened her private integrative vet treatment center last Sept. They were referred for other problems...not the cancer. She had never treated a dog for cancer before - she did rehabilitation/PT only the last ten years.

    Before she opened her private integrative medicine center she did a lot of research - looking for more 'natural' treatments and came across mushrooms, manuka honey, etc. She liked what she was reading and found a company that she was impressed with that sold mushrooms for dogs - Canine Matrix. (sold on Amazon also) She also said she purchased a lot of manuka honey - but we didn't have time to talk about that. (I know that's used to treat/cure cancer) She also said she came across research that CBD shrinks tumors, so she'll use that too.

    When these ill dogs came to her, she suggested Turkey Tail mushroom, Yunnan mushroom, other mushrooms for the cancer, plus whatever else she though might help the dog with mobility issues/other problems it came in with...then they discovered the tumors began to shrink and disappear.

    I asked what kind of cancers these dogs had:

    One dog had thyroid cancer - a 7" x 8" lump on his throat - his vet gave him 4 weeks to live. After starting the mushrooms, the owner noted the tumor was shrinking. The tumor is gone now. I think she said that dog came to her last September...dog appears to be fine now all these months later - no more tumor.

    Another dog had hemangiosarcoma on his penis - couldn't draw his penis back inside the sheath due to the size of the tumor...she said it's shrunk so small now that it can retract now - I believe this dog was seen by her a couple of months ago....the owner isn't going to do the 'western' cancer treatment because it's shrinking.

    Another had soft tissue sarcoma - that's gone.

    Another had carcinomatosis - she said those tumors are gone.

    She said that results are amazing! She used the word 'astounded'. She said more research needs to go in to treating cancer with mushrooms.

    She recommends the 'treatment' dose for a few months and then going to a maintenance dose after that. (In my research, I found that a mushroom complex works even better with the Turkey Tail as mushrooms have a synergistic effect on each other.)

    She uses the dose of 1/2 tsp per 25# per day of Turkey Tail mushroom for several months...then cuts back to a maintenance dose. She says there is info on the label for amt/wt.

    I was excited to hear about the mushroom therapy for cancer and that a veterinarian in my area had 'discovered' that Turkey Tail mushroom is the most researched mushroom in the world for cancer treatments - all kinds of cancers. This is what I came across last year when my dog was diagnosed with nasal cancer - ended up being a wrong diagnosis, but it got me researching and finding out about mushrooms, honey, CBD, etc.) There are cancer trials on going with this mushroom.

    Amazon sells various mushrooms - I use Om brand, the bulk because it's cheaper - easy to spoon in the bowl.

    Just wanted to pass this on as an alternative to western cancer treatment.

    These mushrooms can be used prophylactically to prevent cancer. Don't wait until your dog gets cancer.

    50% of dogs ten and older get cancer.

    Just use a maintenance dose every day. Per the integrative vet. Just add to their regular food.

    Thanks for the information Chance. I'm a bit confused. Which two mushroom treatments do you or is your vet recommend. I'm asking for someone whose dog has skin cancer, and another who's lost two dogs to two different cancers. Thanks!

    I sure hope this pans out - seems we get all these really cool studies/results...and then never hear about them again.

    This could be used for our dogs/cats too - if gets approval.

    Measles Virus Wipes Out Golf-Ball-Sized Cancer Tumor In 36 Hours

    FEBRUARY 9, 2019 AT 1:35 AM

    https://returntonow.net/2019/02/09/m...r-in-36-hours/

    She had an advanced case of multiple myeloma, a deadly cancer of the blood spread throughout her body and bone marrow, when researchers offered her a last-ditch resort — a massive dose of the measles.

    Within 5 minutes, she got a splitting headache and a fever of 105, followed by vomiting and shaking.

    Within 36 hours, a tumor the size of a golf ball on her forehead had disappeared, and within two weeks there was no cancer detectable in her body.

    “It’s been the easiest treatment I’ve done by far,” she tells CNN.

    The virus strain was engineered and weakened in a lab, and then given in a dose strong enough to vaccinate 10 million people.

    Subsequent clinical trials have shown similar results with ovarian cancer, breast cancer and non-Hodgkins lymphoma, according to a 2016 research paper titled “Measles to the Rescue.” And current trials are looking at the effect of the measles on glioblastoma multiforme, mesothelioma and squamous cell carcinoma.

    “We recently have begun to think about the idea of a single shot cure for cancer — and that’s our goal with this therapy,” Russell said.

    Here is something else to look at as a treatment -

    Oklahoma grandfather who claims a drug for DOGS cured him of cancer is tumor-free | Daily Mail Online *he learned that scientists had accidentally discovered that a dog de-worming drug, fenbendazole, seemed to combat many cancers in mice.* https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/a...umor-free.html

    I sent the above article to a M.D./Ph. D. friend of mine - he did a follow up on the drug fenbendazole.

    Here is what he sent me:

    Hopeful, somewhat astonishing and overdue.

    Chance - One of the drugs is mebendazole - a human anti-helminthic drug, in the same class as fenbendazole, the veterinarian medication to which you referred me.

    Others include nitroglycerin, propranolol, and cimetidine - amazing!


    I have forwarded all of this info to my veterinarian for her to peruse, since she treats various animals for cancer.


    The Repurposing Drugs in Oncology (ReDO) Project https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4096030/

    The Repurposing Drugs in Oncology (ReDO) ProjectThe Repurposing Drugs in Oncology (ReDO) Project seeks to repurpose well-known and well-characterised non-cancer drugs for new uses in oncology. The rationale for this project is presented, examining current issues in oncological drug development, challenges for health systems, and existing and future patient needs. In addition to discussing the advantages of repurposing, the paper also outlines some of the characteristics used in the selection of drug candidates by this project. Challenges in moving candidate drugs into clinical trial and subsequent practice are also discussed.*

    Conclusion: The first six drugs to be investigated by the ReDO project are listed in*Table 1. They were selected based on the above criteria from a list of more than sixty non-oncological drug candidates with recent evidence of anti-cancer activity. Other candidate drugs on our list include: EPA/DHA, PUFAs, losartan/ARBs, chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine, statins, propranolol/beta blockers, omeprazole/PPI, and polysaccharide K (PSK).

    Table 1.It may be noted that the list does not include a number of non-cancer drugs which have increasingly attracted attention from the oncological community, for example, the anti-diabetic drug metformin or aspirin. Metformin has become a significant object of clinical cancer research in recent years, driven in part because of the strong epidemiological evidence that it reduces cancer risk in patients with type II diabetes [41], which has also spurred on significant pre-clinical and clinical exploration [42–44]. This level of interest has moved from the laboratory to the bedside, and there are now more than fifty trials investigating the use of metformin in cancer treatment, as well as prevention. It is clear then, that the repurposing of metformin as an anti-cancer agent has moved into the mainstream, and has no need of further effort to make the case for it.

    Aspirin is also missing from our list despite significant levels of interest in the anti-cancer properties that it may possess. While there is some evidence that aspirin may have some influence on cancer treatment post-diagnosis [45,*46], the bulk of attention has been on the prophylactic use of aspirin, including for those at high risk due to Lynch Syndrome [47], or from previous incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) [48]. And, as with metformin, there is also a wide range of pre-clinical and clinical activity around aspirin and cancer such that there is little that a project such as ours could do to add to the debate, in contrast to the situation with lesser investigated drugs such as mebendazole, nitroglycerin, or cimetidine.

    The first six drugs to be assessed by the ReDO project: Mebendazole ( anthelminthic for threadworm infections). Nitroglycerin (vasodilator for angina). Cimetidine (H2-receptor antagonist for peptic ulcer), Clarithromycin ( antibiotic for respiratory tract infection). Diclofenac (NSAID for pain relief). Itraconazole (antifungal for broad spectrum antifungal)*

    This paper has outlined a number of issues with current oncological drug development, economic pressures imposed on health systems due to increased costs of new cancer treatments, and the increasing incidence of cancer, both in developed and developing countries.

    Drug repurposing of existing non-oncological agents, particularly low-cost and generic drugs with known toxicity profiles has been proposed as a strategy to address these issues. While the advantages of repurposing are many, and have been outlined above, we should focus in this concluding remark on the ultimate benefit that we are seeking.*The authors of this paper are a diverse group of researchers, clinicians, and patient advocates all working in the not-for-profit sector. We seek new treatments that meet the needs of existing patients in as short a time-frame as possible and at a cost that is affordable both in developed and developing countries. Most of all we seek treatments that are at least as efficacious as existing standard of care treatments, including the newer targeted therapies which are emerging into clinical practice, but with lower toxicity and offering an improved quality of life to patients. There are numerous hurdles to overcome to make drug repurposing a reality, but perhaps the first of these is in convincing clinicians and patients alike that there really are old drugs already in the pharmacist’s cabinet which can provide some value to cancer patients in fighting their disease. We hope that this paper, and those that accompany it and focus on individual drugs, can provide the scientific rationale and the evidence that this is the case.

    Just to update this and give a short overview:

    Turkey Tail mushroom is THE big one used by my dog's Integrative Medicine Vet. (dose of 1/2 tsp per 25# per day)

    The other is the Yunnan Baiyao used by my dog's regular Vet. (Jazzy, my dog, was last prescribed 2 capsules 3 times a day for her weight of 90#)

    Use both together. Yunnan is very good for bleeding tumors/cancers - it is used to stop/slow the blood lose and it is anti-tumor, anti-cancer.

    Or use the Turkey Tail with the matched up mushroom in the list below:

    Type of Cancer Indicated Mushroom
    Nonsmall-cell lung cancer Cordyceps
    Lung cancer Reishi
    Gastric cancer PSK (turkey tail)
    Hepatocellular carcinoma Agaricus, reishi
    Leukemia Agaricus, reishi
    Lymphoma Cordyceps
    Breast cancer Reishi, maitake, turkey tail
    Colon cancer Maitake, reishi, turkey tail
    Prostate cancer Reishi
    Sarcoma Reishi

    Always use at least TWO mushrooms together - they work synergestically - more cancer fighting/more T cell production.

    There is also a nice priced 7 mushroom mix at Costco.

    I add the powdered mushroom directly to my dog's food. If in a capsule, I open the capsule and sprinkle it on the food because my dog spits out capsules.

    Turkey Tail comes in bulk on Amazon - I buy the Om product.

    I buy organic, USA - except the Yunnan comes from China.

    Just heard about this today - for those interested in stem cell treatments:

    Adequan is a drug used to treat arthritis in dogs and horses. It is similar to naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan in cartilage.

    CUS Veterinary Hospital is big on using this for animals with arthritis. They know it works and have had wonderful results.

    Stem cells are being studied in numerous trials and one at CSU is comparing stem cell infections to Adquan injections. To see if the stem cells work as well or better for treatment of arthritis.

    The dog owner is not told which his dog is receiving. Improvement is determined by walking the dog on pressure sensitive flooring - this measures the weight placed on each limb as the dog walks. The increase in weight
    is indicative of improvement in that limb.



    Stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis in dogs

    Eligibility: Dogs with chronic osteoarthritis (> 6 months duration) of the elbow, knee or hip are eligible for a study investigating the effectiveness of treatment with mesenchymal stem cells (derived from fat tissues of unrelated donor dogs) for relief of joint pain and reduction of joint inflammation. The stem cells will be administered by direct injection into the joint, for a series of 3 treatments at 2-week intervals. The study will require brief sedation for the joint injections and for collection of joint fluid samples. Costs of stem cells will be covered, as will study costs of joint injections and fluid collections. Study eligible dogs must be in good general health and not currently receiving immune suppressive therapy. Treatment with NSAID drugs is allowable during the study, but new drug treatments are not allowed during the 8-week study period. ​

    Contact:
    Dr. Felix Duerr (Felix.Duerr@colostate.edu) ​
    http://csu-cvmbs.colostate.edu/acade...al-trials.aspx

    A bit more info on Adquan if your dog has arthritis and you don't want to just treat the pain/symptoms:

    Adequan belongs to a class of drugs called Disease Modifying Osteoarthritis Drugs (DMOAD). It is the only FDA-approved product of its type, and has been clinically shown to help treat arthritis while simultaneously relieving joint pain.

    Adequan is a prescription medication that can only be dispensed and administered by a licensed veterinarian. That’s because it isn’t just a pill or an ointment, but a treatment requiring injection. When injected directly into your dog’s muscle, Adequan (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan) inhibits bad enzymes that break down cartilage in your dog’s joints.

    Currently, Adequan is only FDA-approved for dogs and horses, though some vets do prescribe it for cats as well. Adequan helps relieve the pain of arthritis by soothing and lubricating the inflamed joint in addition to stimulating joint cartilage repair. Simply put, it helps your dog’s body heal and prevent further deterioration of your pets’ joints. https://noahsarkvet.com/the-benefits...pet-arthritis/

    Restore. Relieve. Renew.
    The FDA-approved formula that’s never been duplicated.
    Adequan® Canine (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan) is the only FDA-approved injectable, disease-modifying osteoarthritis drug (DMOAD) that inhibits cartilage loss in the dog’s joint, and may help to:

    Restore joint lubrication

    Relieve inflammation

    Renew the building blocks of healthy cartilage


    Adequan® Canine is recommended for intramuscular injection for the control of signs associated with non-infectious degenerative and/or traumatic arthritis of canine synovial joints. https://www.adequancanine.com/


    Adequan for dogs is also known as polysulfated glycosaminoglycan and is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of canine osteoarthritis. This drug is defined as a disease modifying osteoarthritis drug (DMOAD) as it treats the disease while relieving the pain associated with it.

    The drug inhibits the catabolic enzymes that are responsible for eroding the joint. It lubricates the joint and, repairs and binds damaged cartilage. At the same time, it enhances the activity of anabolic enzymes to stimulate the synthesis of proteins and collagen. When injected into the dog’s muscle, the drug is absorbed by the inflamed joints and provides relief. It starts to work within hours and stays in the affected joints for 3 days.https://www.vetinfo.com/treating-dog...njections.html

    Current Stem Cell Clinical Trials at Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital:


    The CIRM and CIRM faculty are currently conducting several clinical trials evaluating stem cell therapy for treatment of diseases of dogs and cats. These trials are supported by several non-profit organizations, including the Shipley Foundation, the Eldred Foundation, and the Canine Health Foundation. Eligibility for each trial will be determined by trial coordinators, and for the studies listed below, treatment must be received at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Typically clinical trials will pay a portion of or in some cases all the costs associated with the stem cell treatment. ​

    Activated stem cells for treatment of chronic bacterial infections in dogs

    Stem cell therapy for canine wound healing
    Eligibility: Dogs eligible for this study will have large cutaneous wounds that cannot be managed by simple suturing, and typically require multiple bandage changes weekly. Infected cutaneous wounds are also eligible. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of mesenchymal stem cells (obtained from young donor dogs) imbedded in a biological matrix for stimulation of more rapid wound healing and infection control. Eligible patients must be in good overall health, and not be receiving concurrent immune suppressive or immune modulatory therapy. The study will involve twice weekly topical treatments with stem cells in matrix material, and costs of stem cell treatment are covered by the study.​

    Stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis in dogs
    Eligibility: Dogs with chronic osteoarthritis (> 6 months duration) of the elbow, knee or hip are eligible for a study investigating the effectiveness of treatment with mesenchymal stem cells (derived from fat tissues of unrelated donor dogs) for relief of joint pain and reduction of joint inflammation. The stem cells will be administered by direct injection into the joint, for a series of 3 treatments at 2-week intervals. The study will require brief sedation for the joint injections and for collection of joint fluid samples. Costs of stem cells will be covered, as will study costs of joint injections and fluid collections. Study eligible dogs must be in good general health and not currently receiving immune suppressive therapy. Treatment with NSAID drugs is allowable during the study, but new drug treatments are not allowed during the 8-week study period. ​

    My dog's cardiologist refereed me to items at this website as I make my dog's meals.

    I've ordered the CBD Forte for Jazzy and the vitamins/minerals.

    Just fyi, if anyone is interested.
