Hello all! My beautiful, loving belgian bouvier was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. He is on steroids
( prednisone) and is doing well at the present.He also takes a pepcid daily to help protect his stomach from the steriods.
We have declined radiation /chemotherapy options.
Anyone have any natural remedies that would help strengthen him to fight this devastating diagnosis/disease.
Our main goal is for him to have quality of life, no pain or suffering and of course we would love to have him with us as long as this is possible.
I would suggest you also post this in the Holistic forum as we have veterinarians that understand the natural support of very sick animals and they can more specifically answer your question.
Medically I would support this dog with steroids, pain relief meds, good nutrition and supplements.
Sounds like this is advanced so I hope all your efforts will help him maintain a good quality of life. When the time comes you will know you have done everything for him... and he was very lucky to have YOU.
