What Does Cat Cancer Look Like?
There are many different types of cancer, and each type affects cats differently.
Some cat cancer signs are easy to spot while others are not.
In addition, signs of cancer in cats may vary greatly depending upon a number of factors.
However, the most common signs of cat cancer are:
- Abnormal discharge from the eyes, mouth, ears, or rectum
- Abnormal odors coming from the mouth, ears, or any other part of the body
- Acting painful
- Appetite change
- Changes in bathroom habits
- Lumps and bumps under the skin
- Depression or lethargy
- Difficulty breathing
- Non-healing sores or wounds
- Sudden and irreversible weight loss
- Unusual swelling
If you see any of the above signs in your cat, you should see your veterinarian as soon as possible.
Feed A Home-Cooked Diet
The first step in holistic medicine for cats with cancer is feeding the right food.
Feeding an energetically appropriate diet will make a huge difference in how your cat feels. It also affects how well your cat responds to herbs, medications, and other treatments.
in addition, 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 cat, read through the cat behavior descriptions on the page.
Then, choose the recipe with the description that most matches your cat.
Supplement With Medicinal Mushrooms
Another amazing advancement in holistic medicine for cats with cancer is medicinal mushrooms.
In fact, medicinal mushrooms are a powerful tool for boosting your cat's immune system overall.
All medicinal mushrooms contain powerful polysaccharides called beta-glucans.
And, 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 mushrooms enhance immune function by affecting 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 immune 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.
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 cats 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 cat better digest and assimilate food.
The extra help is very important, as pets with chronic health conditions often also have trouble with nutrient absorption.
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 veterinary authorization to purchase TCVM herbs.
The reason is there are several different blends to choose from, depending on the pet's individual patterns and deficiencies. Vets trained in TCVM are the best at determining the perfect blend for your cat.
You'll get the best results if you get in in-person examination or telemedicine consultation with a TCVM-trained veterinarian.
