Our 9 yr old Standard Poodle, Monty, was diagnosed with prostatic transitional cell carcinoma in Oct. 2007. He has had a series of 4 IV chemo treatments with 3.7 mg of Mitoxantrone, the last one on 12/31/07. He takes 7.5 mg of Promicam, 15 mg of Pepcid and 3000 mg of fish oil daily. The last ultrasound showed that the tumor had shrunk to 3 X 3.7cm. Our question is, should he be taking any herbal suppliments or other medications on an on going basis? If so, what should he be taking? We have heard that Lymph "A" and Lymph "X" may be helpful but we cannot find any information on them on the Internet. The plan it to do another ultrasound in March to see what, if anything, is happening with the tumor. Thank you for any information you can give us.
