Beagle has hemangiosarcoma

My 6year old Beagle named Snoopy had a Spleenectomy on Wednesday(8/22/07) Pathology results will be back end of this week however the Vet feels he has malignant Hemangiosarcoma. Lung's, heart and liver looks uneffected however he removed several lesions from the membrane/lining which looked "suspicious"
I have an appointment on Tuesday with a Holistic Vet. I have placed Snoopy on a diet of Cooked Turkey,sardines and veggies which he loves along with Omega 3 oil.
I have ordered K-9 immunity and K-9 transfer factor.
If he has 2 weeks, 2months or 2 years I want him to be happy and pain free. Any suggestions as to what else I can do would be helpful.  He is happy to be home.    Thanks    Katie

I am so sorry to hear about Snoopy.  
Six years old is young for a hemangiosarcoma, but unfortunately it can occur.  I am glad there does not appear to be any metastasis to his chest and liver.  It sounds as though you are going in the right direction.  A diet free of carbohydrates is an important component of a cancer diet and the supplements you are using should be helpful.  Acupuncture should help, as it can be used to stimulate the immune system.  It is perfectly safe for cancer if done correctly.  I would also ask your holistic vet if he/she uses the antibiotic Doxycycline as part of a cancer protocol.  Doxycycline has been shown to inhibit angiogenesis in cancer cells. Another important supplement that can be purchased over the Internet is called PolyMVA.  You should also add a good probiotic supplement to the diet, lots of broccoli, berries, spices like tumeric, ginger and garlic, a mushroom immune support supplement, and a balanced human vitamin and mineral supplement at 1/2 the human dose.

Please let me know the biopsy results.  Good Luck!
