Golden with Mammary Cancer that has spread

Hi all, I am new here. First I want to introduce myself, I have 4 Goldens, Bridgett, Bailee, Brody and Brandy. I love them dearly. My oldest Bridgett turned 9 in January. She is a princess. The end of January I found out that she has mammary cancer that has metatisised to her lungs. I am devastated, heartbroken and shocked. I have opted out of chemo or radiation or even a possible surgery for my research shows this would just not give her the quality of life that I want for her. I immediatley started her on natural remedies. She has no clinical signs of anything being wrong with her. She is doing great, runs and plays and wags her tail more than ever. I was wondering if anyone has tried the Budwig Diet? Flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. The testimonials I have read are amazing and I have had Bridgett on this for two months now. Was hoping someone in this forum has had success with this and would share their story. I also use Marine Phytoplankon, Transfer Factor Plus and Nutramin Clay. All these help boost the immunity. Please share your thoughts about my approach if you have any info at all. You can check out my blog for the whole story at www.goldenretrievercancer.blogspot.com
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

I have no experience with a holistic approach to cancer, but just wanted to say I'm so sorry for your Bridgett's diagnosis. Many of us here have had Goldens with cancer. Hopefully someone will be able to chime in and offer some advice.

My brother's da;lmatian was only 4 when she was found to have tumjorw in two breasts. They did the surgery and lived anohter 7 years. But her's was caught early and she was younger.

I know how you feel. When my Irish Setter was diagnosed with bone caner in rear leg back in '99 he had had laready passed his 12th brithday, had arthritis in his hips and shoulders. Our vet gaves us the choices. Our hearts were saying ampulate, but our minds and common sense said not to put the elderly dog thru that to try to get an extra month or two.

We decided to just give him the best time of his life wfor what time he had left and that is what we did. we spoiled him rotton. I took him fishing every day to the bay and he played in the water, chasing crabs and shore birds, swimming, etc. One thing I did do was let him have all the doggy no no food he wanted--he had a tremendous sweet tooth and prefered fruits and veggies over meat. We knew he only had a short time and wanted him to enjoy it to the fullest. I did continue with stuff like milk thistle, cranberry, joint sups, and some meds the doctor gave me.

We never regretted making that decision. Sometimes it is is far better not to put them thru radical treatments if there is really no hope for any length of quality life. But by all means, doe everything possible in the way of herbs, normal meds, etc that could extend time. Oh, I hadBoots 10 weeks to the day after diagnosis even tho thedoctor didn't think I would have him a week to 10 days. He still talks about the "old red man" and how long he did so great after diagnosis.

I am sorry about your Bridgett. I don't have any experience with the diet you are using. My little girl, Emmy, was just diagnosed with intramuscular hemangiosarcoma. We are using curcumin, bilberry, dang guy shao yao san. Right now she is doing well. I hope you have a lot more time with your princess.

I'm so sorry for Bridgett's diagnosis, but excited to see that she's doing well.

I also came to this forum because of a cancer diagnosis. It is a wealth of support - from a medical aspect and an emotional aspect. I encourage you to lean on it

So sorry to hear about Bridgett, I will keep her in my prayers. I have no experience with cancer in dogs. My aunt had cancer and opted out on surgery and chemo etc. We gave her essiac tea. Not sure but I think it is safe for dogs. Anyway it cured my Aunt. Hope this helps.

I have heard of giving that tea to dogs with cancer, think it was on the old i-dog forum. one thing for sure, it it doesn't hurt, them, why not try it.
