Inside Scoop: TCVM Veterinarians Share Holistic Dog Cancer Protocol

Dealing with your dog's cancer can be emotional and difficult. You may know your dog's diagnosis but still have many questions. 

In this article, we're sharing the dog cancer protocol TCVM veterinarians Dr. Marc Smith and Dr. Casey Damron recommend in their Tennessee clinics.

You may or may not be able to get your dog into remission.

However, the good news is there are many things you can do at home to help your dog feel better and have an improved quality of life.

What Does Dog Cancer Look Like?

There are many different types of cancer, and each type affects dogs differently. 

Some dog cancer signs are easy to spot while others are not. In addition, signs of cancer in dogs may vary greatly depending upon a number of factors.

However, the most common signs of dog cancer are:

  • Lumps and bumps¬†underneath your¬†dog's skin
  • Abnormal odors coming from the mouth, ears, or any other part of the body
  • Abnormal discharge from the eyes, mouth, ears, or rectum
  • Acting painful
  • Appetite change
  • Changes in bathroom habits
  • Coughing
  • Depression or lethargy
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Lumps and bumps¬†under the skin
  • Non-healing¬†sores or wounds
  • Sudden and irreversible weight loss
  • Unusual¬†swelling

If you see any of the above signs in your dog, you should see your veterinarian as soon as possible.

Dog Cancer Protocol Step #1: Learn More About Dog Cancer

If your dog is newly diagnosed with cancer and you are still learning how it affects your dog, you should get a free copy of our ebook What Every Dog Owner Should Know About Cancer: An Arsenal of Medical, Holistic, and Alternative Options.

Holistic veterinarians, Dr. Casey Damron and Dr. Marc Smith wrote the manual, with the pet parent in mind. It explains what's going on and how your dog feels, and offers information on things you can do at home to help.

Dog Cancer Protocol Step #2: Feed a Home-Cooked Diet

Dietary changes will make a huge difference in how your dog feels, and also how well your dog responds to herbs, medications, and other treatments.

A good diet is the foundation of good health. You can quickly and easily get started by visiting the PET |  TAO Holistic Pet Products recipe page. If you're not sure what diet is best for your dog, take a look at their feeding suggestions chart. 

If you prefer to feed an already-prepared diet, check out PET | TAO Zing Canned Formula. 

Dog Cancer Protocol Step #3: Supplement With Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms are a powerful tool for boosting your dogs immune system. 

All medicinal mushrooms contain powerful polysaccharides called beta-glucans. Studies show beta-glucans balance the immune system and fight inflammation.  

The product Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron recommend is PET | TAO Complement Immune.  

Complement Immune is a synergistic blend of four medicinal mushrooms: Reishi, Shiitake, Turkey Tail, and Maitake. 

  • Reishi‚ÄĮmushrooms enhance‚ÄĮimmune function‚ÄĮthrough its effects on white blood cells, which help fight infection and cancer.¬†
  • Shiitake mushrooms¬†contain the antioxidant l-ergothioneine and the immune-boosting polysaccharide lentinan.¬†
  • Turkey tail mushrooms contain¬†a compound called polysaccharide-K (PSK) that stimulates the‚ÄĮimmune system. PSK is so effective that¬†it is¬†an approved anticancer prescription drug in Japan.¬†
  • Maitake mushrooms¬†enhance macrophages, natural killer (NK) cells, and cytotoxic T-cells.¬†

Dog Cancer Protocol Step #5: Supplement with Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes

Supplementing with probiotics and digestive enzymes has several benefits. 

First, they help ease your pet's stomach upset naturally. Many dogs with cancer suffer stomach upset as well.

PET | TAO Harmonize GI naturally provides all the digestive enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics your pet needs for optimum gut health.

Secondly, digestive enzymes and probiotics help your dog better digest and assimilate food.

The extra help is very important, as pets with chronic health conditions often also have trouble with nutrient absorption.

Dog Cancer Protocol Step #5: Try a TCVM Herbal Blend

Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron also recommend TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blends for their patients suffering from cancer.

Some examples of TCVM herbal formulas they often recommend in their clinics include:

You need a veterinarian's authorization to purchase TCVM herbs. The reason is here are several different blends to choose from, depending on the pet's individual patterns and deficiencies. 

You'll get the best results if you get in in-person examination or telemedicine consultation with a TCVM-trained veterinarian.
