Sadly, cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 10. It’s this terrifying and complicated disease that inspired us to create Pet Med Labs in the first place. Our beloved dog, Broder, was diagnosed and we sought out as many natural remedies that wouldn’t have the side effects of pharmaceuticals to help him with his cancer. While different types of cancers require different treatment modalities, we’ve found that our CBD products can greatly reduce the effects of many treatments and promote overall wellness before and after cancer is diagnosed.
DEALING WITH DOG CANCER
Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that results because the DNA is damaged. Sometimes this is genetic and sometimes it is a result of conditions in the environment. The best thing you can do to help prevent cancer is to get your dog plenty of exercise, nutrients, and vitamins. If your dog is diagnosed, we’d encourage you to both listen to your veterinarian and to seek out many of the emerging natural treatments and supplements that help support healing.
Dog Cancer Treatment
If your dog is diagnosed with cancer, her treatment will depend on what type and the state of the cancer. Many cancers are curable, while others are not. Sometimes pain management and end of life care is your only option. In either case, ensuring that your dog is eating, and that her endocrine system is functioning to the best of its ability, can greatly help in both healing and dealing with excess pain.
