I’ve been hearing that infused high dose
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid ) can be a good
treatment protocol for cancer in dogs
A friend of mine had her “holistic” vet do it
On her dog and he responded very positively!
Any one else familiar with this? It’s working for
Human cancers too. See Dr. Levys book
“Primal Panacea” on Amazon. Com. And google vitamin C and osteosarcoma. I’m probably going to have my holistic vet provide this treatment for my greyhound that just recently has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. TheanonymousMember

Things Holistic Vets Say About Cancer that Should Make Pet Owners Run the Other Way
Posted on July 5, 2016 by skeptvet
Cancer is a common and frightening disease, and many pet owners will have to face making decisions about cancer care for their pets at some point. While there are many therapies that can improve quality of life for a veterinary cancer patient, extend life, and even cure cancer in some cases, the painful reality is that there is much we don’t know about cancer. Often, cancer will be life limiting despite the best care possible.
This unpleasant reality leads many to seek alternative therapies for their pets with cancer. Unfortunately, those alternatives are almost never proven to be safe or effective, and many, such as homeopathy, are unquestionably nonsense. Yet despite the lack of evidence to support many alternative cancer treatments, and the evidence that shows some such treatments can cause real harm, some vets will try to frighten and mislead pet owners into avoiding scientific medical therapies and grasping at the various straws they offer, from homeopathy to acupuncture, from supplements and magical diets to outright magic such as so-called “energy medicine.”
“In the face of the ubiquitous unreliable information from holistic vets such as these, it can be hard to sort out which information is truly useful. Here are some resources that are a good bit more trustworthy”.
