Cody's story

Cody's journey began on November 5, 2006, when he collapsed after a day at the beach in San Francisco. He was rushed to the emergency veterinarian, where he was diagnosed with an incurable cancer, hemangiosarcoma. With tumors in his liver, spleen and heart, Cody was given the grim prognosis of just a few days to live. I was devastated, but could not let Cody go without a fight. After extensive research, my first step was to change his diet. Unable to find freshly prepared, organic food critical to Cody’s fight against cancer, I started making Cody a “cancer-fighting” diet along with an arsenal of herbs and supplements. Cody thrived on his new diet. After 5 months, the tumors in his heart and liver were undetectable via ultrasound, which then made him a candidate for surgery ... something the vets said was unheard of! He underwent surgery to remove his spleen and was then deemed cancer free. Cody lived 7 more months after his sugery to the ripe old age of 12 1/2 years old. He lost use of his back legs due to either a slipped disc or a tumor on the spine. He had been through so much already so I decided to help him on his journey. Just before the vet administered the euthanizing drug, Cody lifted his head and looked me in the eyes thanking me for all I had done. It was the saddest day of my life, yet at the same time the most inspirational as it has changed me for the better in so many ways.

Cancer fighting tip from Cody's owner Aimee Q.

Change your dog's diet immediately. Commercial dog food, especially kibble, are full of grains and carbohydrates, which fuel the cancer. Cody went from the brink of death to 17 healthy months and all I did for the first few weeks was change his diet and add supplements. I listed his diet below. Add a comment to Cody's profile page if you want more details on Cody's treatment plan.
Note: Cody was a 75 lb Golden Retriever so you will want to adjust according to your dog’s weight and metabolism and specific cancer. Also, note that Cody was not a big eater and he also got dehydrated chicken strips as snacks. Also, remember to keep in mind other diseases. For example, high-protein diets are not recommended for dogs with kidney issues. Below is the basic recipe that I used for each meal. He was fed twice a day. All items were organic.
*8 oz meat (chicken, turkey or beef)
*2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
*1-2 tbs. fish oil
*4 broccoli spears (slightly steamed and then finely chopped up)
*1/2 can of sardines (in olive oil)
*1 tsp. bone meal or calcium carbonate (ground up eggshells)
*2 small gloves of garlic (optional) (Note: some studies have shown that garlic is not good for dogs, others have shown it is very good for fighting cancer ... you will have to make the call on this one).

    Max's owner Cody's photo with his chin on the deck looks so much like Max. He sits exactly like that waiting for his ball to be thrown. I am so sorry for your loss and I appreciate your detailed description of his diet. We are struggling with the thought of losing Max and doing everything we can to prolong a good quality of life for him.

    Kona's owner Hi Aimee, I'm so glad I discovered Cody's story and this site. It has provided me with some hope in an otherwise dismal situation. I just posted my Golden's (Kona) profile, and I'm planning to start a diet similar to what you did for Cody. I have the basic organic diet from Cody's profile page and am heading out to gather ingredients this evening. I have also already ordered your book. My boy Kona is in a similar situation as your Cody was but thankfully, at this point, there is no visibly detectable metastasis to other organs. If you could provide me with any more information on the "Natural > Vitamins/Supplements/Minerals/Herbs (Chinese and Western)" regimen that you used I would be most grateful. I will email you with my email at the address you provided to Kob's owner. Thank you for providing this resource and for sharing your story. I know that you have provided hope and comfort to many...

    Mary T. Our German Shepherd, Taylor, was just diagnosed with HSA. Your story, tips and list of supplements/diet give us hope and tremendous help as we embark on our journey with her. I would appreciate it if you could help with a couple of questions: was the meat you provided Cody raw or cooked? Also, can all these supplements/herbs be found bundled together in a few products/pills or should we be looking to get these individually? Thank you so much for being out there and sharing your experience, knowledge, and thoughts. Kind regards Mary

      Cody's owner Sorry to hear about Taylor :(. I would be happy to help. Cody's food was raw, except for when he had surgery, then we cooked it post surgery for about a month. I tried to find a many of the herbs and supplements bundled as it makes it easier to give to them. Let me know if you need anything else.

    McClay's owner Wow, this gives me such hope, it's so upsetting to see my boy go down hill so fast. McClay was diagnosed with HSA on Dec 23rd after being misdiagnosed numerous time with a kidney infection. I have positive thoughts that he is going to pull through but so hard when he won't eat anything and is throwing up white foam. It's devastating, we have to feed him with a turkey baster just to get him to eat anything. I honestly believe it's from all the meds the doctor got him on. I'm currently sitting in my room listening to my husband force feed McClay because every time I'm around him I just break down and that's not good energy for a healing dog. We find out at the end of this week if McClay is able to have surgery to remove the 6.29cm tumor on his liver and to get his spleen removed. I'm absolutely sick to my stomach with worry, but it’s stories like this that pull me through day by day.

How did you know how much to give? Was Cody to the point (prior to the loss of his hind legs at the end) with his heart tumor that he didn't have enough energy to walk? Thank you for this site as well as for your books which I have bought.

      Bailey's owner I think it would be fantastic! You know, I am planning to adopt another dog. I've decided to wait until the spring because I have some trips coming up this winter and I don't want to leave him/her alone for that length of time while still so young. But before I do adopt, I want to plan a daily diet regime that would be most healthy and beneficial. It would be great to have one resource for reference, rather than having to sort it all out and plan recipes. I also think that if it's just as easy for people to feed their pets healthily, they will do it. It would be such a wonderful compliment to this site. Either that or you could write another book, "42 Rules to Keeping Your Pet Healthy" (wink wink). I hope all is well.

      Bailey's owner You know I swear I saw a website address that went something like www.dietbycody.com or something like that. Whatever it was, it definitely had the name Cody in the address. When I clicked on the link it gave the message that it couldn't find the server and I just figured I would try again later. Hmmm...now I wonder if it was a dream? I have been searching petfinder and maybe it was stuck in my head. But if it was a dream, many would consider it to be a vision within a dream. Just a thought.

    Bailey's owner Hi Aimee, Thanks so much for providing this amazing resource, and the opportunity to network and share stories. What an incredible story about Cody! I was wondering if it is possible to get more info on your treatment plan that you used for Cody. Specifically, I'm interested in how you used artemisinin with the other supplements (did you do this separate, or still give supplements at the same time?), and what anti-angiogenisis conventional treatment did you go with? My Bailey has been dx with OS, and we are fighting! He was dx in June, had amp surgery, and just finished his carboplatin 5 treatments. We have integrated a lot holistic treatments with the conventional, and are trying to figure out what to try next. I've been looking at possibly doing 2-3 treatments of doxirubicin, palladia was suggested as part of MP, and we're also interested in Arte. So many decisions. In any case, I'm highly interested in those specifics about Cody's treatment. What an inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing his story.

      Bailey's owner Oh - another thought... wanted to ask how you used Essiac tea. I'm interested in that as well. Did you brew the tea? Or buy the capsules? Is it most effective given on an empty stomach? And do you know if it is, can it be combined with other supplements that we do on an empty stomach (IP-6 and noni)? Thanks!!

    O'malley's owner Hello Aimee, Thank you so much for your kind words. I miss my beautiful O'Malley every single day as you too, miss Cody who looks so sweet and beautiful too on the picture... Now that I look back I wish I had not gone with the TPLO surgery because I beleive it triggered a surge in a latent hemangiosarcoma... I know I meant to do right and I was told O'malley would be in pain and could torn his other ACL soon after the first one broke. What was the hardest for me was to restrain him after the TPLO surgery, he was such a free and active dog, he did not seem to understand why he suddenly was on a leash or restrained from getting up on the coach or the bed... I never saw him getting old, the picture in the river was taken only 6 weeks before the TPLO... He wasn't even 11. I had to make the heartbreaking decision with my vet to hepl him move on only 17 days after discovering the hemangiosarcoma... I wish I could go back and drive away from the clinic...selfishly... Just like you seem to describe it for you and Cody it was peaceful, I held his head close to mine and had my lips on his nose wanting him to know I was very close as he took his last breath... This site helps in knowing that other people share that magical love and understanding we can have with our dogs. O'Malley was a son to me. i am glad that people are also taking a closer look at what they feed their dogs... I wish I had done it earlier... I was naively convinced that O'Malley would live to be 16... What i also have learned is that we know our dogs better than any vet... as wonderful as mine are, if I had not insisted on that Tuesday evening that "something" was terribly wrong, some regular vet could have sent me back home and O'malley would have died overnight of a probable "heart attack"... instead they trusted me, did a few major test right then, came with the dreadful diagnosis but attempted and succeeded in doing a heart puncture and gave me 2 more weeks with him, I am thankful for that... I tried to make his last days as comfortable as possible although fearing that every day would be THE day... Hemangiosarcoma is a vicious disease, but so is every other type of cancer. I hope I will see O'malley again one day...

    Cheyenne's owner Hi Aimee! I would like to thank you for posting your story! Our 11 year old German Sheppard, Cheyenne, was just diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma two-weeks ago and we're devastated. My husband came home and found her in total distress and rushed her to the vet. The next day we were at a speciality clinic where she underwent emergency surgery to remove her spleen. The prognosis, as you know is not great. It gives us hope to hear how well Cody did with the diet change, etc, which we will be starting asap. Cody was very lucky to have you in his corner!!

I appreciate your kind thoughts. I am still crying. Expect I will for the rest of my life. But, I have another wonderful dog - an English Mastiff named Bella - who seems to be in worse shape than the rest of us. Helping her is helping all of us. Soon we will get her a new companion and the excitement of a new puppy will energize the house. There will never be another dog like my Jackson, however. He will always be the dog by which I judge all others. Thank you for starting this site. There is so much comfort to be found in people who share this intense passion for dogs.

I am interested in Cody's diet and supplement list. Where is it located? Also, I assume that you all are talking about pilling your dogs with pill pockets. I had a really hard time doing this. Rena hated it, and there were so many. Just the fish oil for her weight was 8 pills. How did you do it? Laura

      Rocco's owner Laura, sorry for sticking myself in here. I just added my boys story and thought I'd offer some advice. Did you try feeding the fish oil pills plain? One of my dogs eats them when they're mixed in with his food, he likes the fish flavor; however, Rocco (my boy who passed of Lymphoma) HATED fish and he weighed 120lbs so he had to eat a lot of pills. The only way he'd eat them was covered in food. Because I cooked him a cancer diet anyway (raw), I would put the pills in and then top them with a raw egg and beef liver. Or if he wasn't feeling so well, I'd top it with cooked beef. Sorry if that doesn't help much!

    Dannon's owner Hello Amiee, The first thing I would do is have an allergie test done to find out what he is allergic to the best company to do this is Bio medical they are located in Texas. Your vet can have this done. They are the only facility that gives you diffenative results vs. I think results. typically I tell people to do the specialty as well as insects,enviormental and food allergies. That way you know what your up against instad of continuing to spend money on guessing. That can be costly. Of course raw is best in my opinion to. Typically with food allergies the most common allergens are, chicken, lamb and beef for protein sources as well as carrots,grains and beets,eggs. Turkey and venison are the least allergenic I find. As far as astragalus it stimulates the T helper cells in the body which helps in the fight of cancer as well as immune function. It also has antibacterial properties as well. It would hurt but probibly wont solve the problem your dog is experiancing. I have a new product called silver sol which kills bacteria viruses and fungus almost on contact and can be given in all orfices of the body as well as topically without any harmfull side effects. Dannon just started on it. Theroitically if it kills fungus it will kill the cancer which one in the same:) The other thing I reccomend is a Hair anaylisis. If you know which minerals the dog is difficiant in as well as excess in you can minipulate the minerals to get there body back into balance by providing them whith what they need which also will help to combat disease which is where all diseases come from.

    Dannon's owner Another note my experiance as well as my clients hasnt been very good. Taste of the wild is a potato based food which has a 4-1 ratio which means it is 4 parts potato and 1 part meat. Not good. Potatoes can spike the insulin even higher than sugar can. I russet potao is like eating 21 tsp's of sugar with in refrence to how it reacts with the body. My concern is it will feed the cancer. I had a conversation with the engineer who made Taste of the wild some time ago since I was having problems with several of my clients dog/cats that had been on it. I have seen high weight gain a well as diabetis. After the food was no longer used the animals became normal again. Just an obervation. Potatoe's,corn and peanuts can contain aflotoxins that can cause not only death but they can also cause cancer. It is a mold that grows on the skin of the product due to non dry atmosphere. Again this my opinion on these products for what it is worth to others.. Thanks for all you do Amiee

      Cody's owner I would always recommend fresh home prepared food first, but realize that not everyone has time to do this. What would you recommend to those that don't have time to do fresh and have to buy their dog food. Nature's Variety raw looks like a good one as well, however, it does have fruits, which would feed the sugar as well.

      Dannon's owner Natures vaarity has been sold twice so the products that they have in my opinion have goone down hill. I only carry 2 of there products at my store until I can find a replacement of venison and instinct that are better. I preffer stella and chewys or primal mixes /grinds for raw since they are organic in greens and natural in meat. Beter than most out there if your not going to make your own. As far as fruits I use them I use very low glycemic fruits with low histamine levels to.

    Dannon's owner Thanks for the info on the pill pockets. Just a little info for you. Pill pockets can caue gastro upset as well as vomiting and diarrhea since it has proplene glychol in ita relative to ethyleen glychol. I have seen this in many animals after taking several pill pockets at a time. The proplene glycol keeps the treat or pocket moist so they dont dry out they also use this horrible ingrediant in moist treats so I never use them either. They also have some type of sugar/glucose in it to so I wont use them for any of my animals.

      Cody's owner Thanks for the note. I also made meatballs for Cody. I realize that Pill Pockets does not have the best ingredients so I actually would try to reduce the amount I used. I had to weigh the benefits of the pills vs. the small amount of bad stuff. Pill Pockets was the only thing that worked with Cody. What do you do to pill Dannon?

    Emmett's owner Thank you for your kind words. Also, I really appreciate you sharing the diet you fed Cody... I've been reading and researching as much as possible about switching Emmett from kibble (he's been on Science Diet) to a more holistic feeding regimen, and your notes are extremely useful!

    Bailey's owner Dear Cody, Thank you for being such a sweet boy and for making Aimee love you so much. It is because of you that this website was created. And now many other dogs will benefit from the experience she gained while lovingly caring for you. Rest in peace, Cody and give Bailey a big lick from me. Your Momma and I miss you both very much.
