Dannon's story

Still ticking and his quality of life is still great. Dannon is still currently employed as my service dog.
Describe your dog's treatment : Hair tissue mineral anylsis to correct his imbalances of minerals. To many or not enough can exastrabate diseases including cancer. Some time the HTMA can predict cancer to. WHich it did for my dog. Dannon is an 8 yr old aussie who has mass cell sarcoma. he had traditional removal with 3cm margins, which then caused the area to become even worse. Dannon takes IP6 to stimualte T helper cells as well as reduced glutathione and his minerals that are specific for his imbalances. If I had use the products the vet had told me to it would of increased his mineral excesses that he already has which would could be detramental. Dannonwas injected with neoplasene around where the tumor was remioved which revieled he still had active cancer cells growing. The neoplasene salve was then applied to the area where the cells were and the neoplasene killed then and then left a wound for me to manage. While his wouldns were healing I used raw unfiltered honey to apply to the wound which caused great granulation to form and a quick healing time with no infection. He was also cold lasered too with the setting for wound management until completly healed. Dannon is also taking neoplasene (holistic) orally which is given 2 x a day to treat/kill any stray cancer cells that become apparent internally.. Dannon also is a raw fed dog to. NO GRAINS low carbohydrates and I check his PH daily. it is usually about 7.5-8.0 Cancer cannot live in an alkaline enviorment. Dannon also takes MMS(miricle minneral supplement) This help to super oxygenate his cells. Dannon also takes dimethlglycine known as DMG. This helps with cellular oxygenation HBA which helps to rebuild the liver and milk thisle for liver support. Ubiquinol co enzyme Q-10 and english hawthorn berry in a gemo therapy This helps with cellular strengthning of his heart. Dannon also is cold lasered weekly for his cancer to reset his cells back to a normal state. Dannon also gets benificial greens to help with alkalizing him as well as coconut milk yoghert with no soy or dairy for bennificial probiotics and prozyme to.. Dannon is also given every other day a supository called detoxamine to help rid him of his toxic heavy metals. I might add his heavy metals have been greatly reduced. since starting this therapy which is crutial.I intend to start ozone therapy on him as well. Dannon has been detoxed via homeopathy from his vaccines (rabies)which caused his cancer in the first place. He was only vaccinated 2 times.
If you could give dog owner's fighting dog cancer only one tip, what would it be? : Dont do chemo only 2 % of humans actually go into remission. the side effect's can be deadly instead start your animal on whole foods such as a raw food diet no kibble or canned or biscuts in there diet since it eventually converts the starches to a sugar which feeds the cancer. Then go see a holistic vet. Stop all vaccines and antibiotics steroids. There are options to help you animal beat cancer or at the very least extend there life..

Cancer fighting tip from Dannon's owner Katie C.

Always look for more options dont be close minded.
Be your dogs advocate and voice. You dont have to take everthing you vet says as being the only way to treat your animal.
Most traditional vets only know how to treat with chemo,drugs and radiation. That is how they are trained in vet school to treat symptoms. GET A SECOUND OPINION FROM A TRUE HOLISTIC VET!! THEN MAKE YOUR DECISION.
There are options out there you just have to look for them.

    Ginger's owner Way to go Dannon! Great advice. You are doing so many wonderful things. We never used chemo either and Ginger did great with our diet and supplements. Ginger also ate a raw diet and we stopped the vaccinations once she became diabetic at age 6. I bet now that you know what keeps a dog healthy in a crisis, you'll do the same for any new dog in your life from the start. We did!

    Dannon's owner I havent written about Dannons Mast cell cancer in a while but here is an update. HE IS DOING GREAT!!!! NO chemo ever and So far no more tumors in 6 months. I continue to do all of the things that I have written about in his profiles including raw food as well as supporting his immune system whcih is key. He continues to have hair anaylsis every 3 months to ensure he is getting the proper mineral not in excess to support him instead of creat more problems.. You can go to his profile to see all the supplements and therapies we do. The biggest thing I have noticed is that with mast cell if your giving a chicken based diet you might be causeing alot more harm than good. Chicken releases and produces the most histamine of any tyical protein source that is used in todays food for animals. If Dannon happens to get some chicken anything he will start to reflux again because of the histamine release that is associated with chicken. That isnt a good thing. The cancer if circulating at taht time will then deposit more cells all around his body where ever the histamine goes.This can be a very bad senerio. In simple terms since mast cell is driven by histamine you want to keep you pet away or off of potential histamine releasing products or sources. I do not use antihistamines since it reduced there immune system which isnt good since you want them to be able to fight the cancer cells from occuring. It has been over 1 yrs since his fight began and now is the best come. Dannon had plenty of energy to keep up with the puppies in rescue and play like a young dog at 9 yrs. Every day is a beautifull blessing to have with Dannon still here with me but I wont let myguard down. the supplemtation is expensive but I always figure out a way so he can continue to live vivashiouly for many years to come.

      Cody's owner What kind of meat do you find is best for dogs with histamine issues. My current dog CJ has bad allergies. Through Chinese herbs I was able to get rid of the paw chewing, but he still itches his sides.

    Dannon's owner WOW Dannon continues to improve dramatically every day!!! The Kangen water alkaline/antioxident water is the biggest thing that has changed his energy level as well as reduce his tumors.. Now that Dannon is alkaline the cancer cannot survive!!! You can ask me for more info if your interested>>( I can tell you how to get this water for you as wellas you pet) The immuno cal ,angiostop and revivn continue to make him stronger daily. Dannon does get some other products that support him as well but the top 5 things are the most prolerfic in his treatment currently. Dannon is hiling 5 miles without any difficulty and playing several times a day which he hasent done in 2 yrs. This is so exciting!! I am so thankfull that I still have him this yr and will get to cellabrate his 9th birthday on January 13, 2010 he wll be 9 yrs old. Every day is a gift as he continues to get beter and improve. He is my only true christmas gift this year:)

    Dannon's owner Dannon is doing better today. He went almost 3 days without his normal amount of raw food so I finally gave in and started to hand feed him again. He also ate raw frozen beef cartliage for a snack yum:) and llama bones. He started sneezing again as well as scratching the last week which tells me his cancer is on the move again:( Since I started him back on the astraglus his sneezing has stopped and the runny nose is much less as well as the iching. He is playing and seems to be feeling better today. Yesterday he went shopping with me doing his typical service dog duties with no problem with sluggishness.

      Cody's owner What is astraglus? My dog CJ is very itchy due to allergies and we are trying to get it under control. We moved a few years ago and that is when it started and now it is really bad. He is on some herbs from the holistic vet. Wondering if you know if astraglus helps with allergies in general so I can ask my holistic vet about it. Currently CJ is on something called Damp Heat and External Wind.

    Dannon's owner Dannon is back on the immunocal to boost his glutathione production which helps with his immunity as well as reducing his inflamation to. Dannon has figured out there are pills in his raw meatballs so getting him to eat has been a huge challenge unless I hand feed him. I get so frustrated!!! Dannon is scratching quiet a bit since saturday when a client of mine gave him many grain filled treats which seemed to trigger his allergy responce and histamine release. (This is not a good thing) I started to cold laser him again daily to try to get his body to reset itself and stop producing the histamine release and back into balance so he isnt dumping more cancer cells in his circulation evertime he has a histamine release. Dannon hasent eaten a full meal for 2 days now. I want to see if his inner fight responce as well as his need to eat will win so he will start to eat again with out my hand feeding. He continues to get his supplements and is now going back on astragalus since he was off of it for 15 days for a rest. Dannon continues to get the Kangen 9.5 alkaline microclustered water in between meals. His energy is still great I just wish his appetite would kick into high gear again.

      Cody's owner I had the same problem with getting Cody to eat so I used Pill Pockets. See: http://www.greenies.com/en_US/products/dogpillpockets.aspx?Product_ID=

      Oreo's owner Please read all ingredients in these premade dog products. Pill pockets should NOT be given to dogs with cancer or compromised immune systems. Or I suspect most of us would say - NEVER. WHY? 1st ingredient: Chicken (probably GMO & yes, even in beef flavor) = Histamine. WHEAT (never feed any dog wheat), wheat gluten (yea, more wheat), corn syrup and corn flour (corn is #1 allergen in dogs, do not feed dogs corn). Vegetable oil (what kind? Fresh? Rancid? Lots of oils used in dog food are cheap and are vasoconstrictors). Beef - free range or organic? NO, it's GMO for sure.

    Dannon's owner Thanksgiving was a grtet day for Dannon. He and many of his dog friends went for a 4 mile hike in the hills:) Dannon had plenty of energy even when the hike was over. DAnnon continued to badger the other dogs to play whent hey were tired. The KAngen water has really turned Dannon around!!! We did try other alkaline and supposidly microcluster water Knock offs but none have helped Dannon as much as the Kangen machine. Dannon has more vibrant energy along with his tumor size has signifficantly gotten smaller and no iching from histamine release:) If Dannon can just maintain he will continue to live a mostly normal life for many years to come.

      Dannon's owner Geesh sorry for the late comment. Astraglus works to increase T helper cells as well as it is bacterialcidal. It will help his immune system but that might incrouarg him to have more histamine relese since your dealing with allergies. you can try histamine in a homeopathic remedy every 15 min up to 5 doses or as needed when a flare happens. If your not familiar with homeopathy just let me know and I will tell you how to use it. it must be given sub lingual to be effective. The other product that I have use in the apast for alleries has quercitin and bromaline in it. this typically works well to. The other option it NAET you can look it up on line it is a natural way to rid the animal or person of allergies. Hope this helps, K

    Dannon's owner Yesterday was a good day Dannon wanted to play with me as well as the Rottie that was boarding here for a few days. He ate well osrtrich head yum in his mind, as well as some yak bones and beef cartiliage to. A good day full of chewing and enjoying every bite. his groing tumors in the lymph nodes seem to be smaller today but that can be short lived since tumors can shrink and then come back all in the same day. Unfortunatly today Dannon dosent seem to be as bright as yesterday. He has gotten very smart about refusing his pills disquised in his meat. I do not give peanut butter since it can carry afluotoxins which can cause cancer as well as potato and corn products as well as other grains to. It can be so frustrating sometimes.

    Dannon's owner I forgot to say that his margins were clean from his origional surgery but that was incorrect. Sometimes the cancer jumps over the margins by several cm so you think you got it all but you dont. The oncologist thought she had it all but she was wrong to. She said he was cured but was wrong to my gut told me he wasnt done with this cancer yet and I was unfortunatly right.

    Dannon's owner I forgot to say that when the thermal immaging was done it revielved that Dannon has a couple of tumors in his spleen and liver area. Interesting enough the vet who did several fine needle asperiates told me that Dannon was cancer/tumor free there. Unfortunatly that proved to not be the case. I guess sometimes you cant find a needle in a hay stack which is why I wouldnt do a F and A again. The spleen/liver are huge organs. So the likely hood of finding a small area with caner cells and asperiating them isnt always found unless you get lucky or there are huge amount of cancer cells everywhere.. Hence the MRI, pet scan /or thermography. I also learned a new thing that certain foods also contribute to more histamine release you can go to the internet to find out what types of food cause more histamine release than others. Why is this important? Mass cell is driven by histamine release in the body. WHen the body releases histamine it then deposits new cancer cells in the circulatory system where ever they choose to land. That is why this type of cancer is so hard to control.

    Dannon's owner Next week We will start Dannon on another treatment of sodium bicarbonite we are waiting for a reply from Dr Simonchini from Rome Italy for the correct way to administer the therapy. Is it best to do IV or inject directly into the tumors or both? I will let everyone know as soon as I do. Reccomended reading is "Cancer is a fungus" by Dr Tulio Simonchini. So far Dannon is doing well he plays and is acting almost like him self again. His stamina just isnt as up to par as one would like. Dannon s cancer is now also invading his groin lymph nodes which sucks so that is why the more agressive treatments. I am thinking about putting him back on the neoplasene for a while to see if he handles it well with great results again.

    Dannon's owner I contimue to learn more as the journey continues. I decided to consult another oncoligist just in case he might kow of something that I didnt. unfortunatly he was very close minded and basically said I was crazy. Had I dont waht was told to me in the past Dannon wouldnot be here still thriving. Dannon had a thermal scan done on Oct 30th to see where the tumors were at this time. he has 2 neew ones around his neck and the 2 on his sternam have some what shrank since on the Angiostop. His from paw is finally clean from cancer after many applications of neoplasene over time. The thermal scan also revielved that he had a peridontial problem where he had a tooth that had broken off 5 yrs ago. even though Dannon didnt show any out ward signs of this. Since he is raw fed his teeth and gums are perfect and no tarter to speak of so thsi was a huge suprise for me. 2 days ago Dannons broken tooth was extracted out of his mouth no more problems I hope. Dannon latest this has been not to want to eat in the morning probibly due to the reflux that happens with this type of cancer. dannon has also decided that he no longer wants to take his pills so that is a little bit of a challenge. Since Dannon has cancer his wish is my command so I am hand feeding him his breakfast but Dinner is no problem. Dannaon is getting carbo vegitalis a homeopathic remedy for his refluxing and histamminie another rememdy to stop his over production of histamine which is one of this type of cancers issues. remember that Homeopathy is treating like for like so the body then fixes the imbalance. When we have break through of the acid reflux Dannon gets Tagament which also has some anti tumor effect I am told by an oncoligist.

    Dannon's owner Here is an update on Dannons treatment. Dannon was taken off of the neoplasene oral at the end Of Sept due to Dannon iching tremendously and his skin and hair drying out. We gave him a break for 2 months. On 9/30 Dannon was started on a new protical called Angio stop and Revivn made by Dr. Chi Enterprises. the Angio stop inhibits 4 recepter tyrosine kinases (RTKs) VEGFR,EGFR,EGRF,PDGR,FGFr. It also inhibits new blood vessel formation as well as induced apoptosis. The product inhibits the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor VEGFR . This is most important because it stops angiogenisis,cutting off the nutrient supply to the tumor. Angiostop also inhibits EGFR (epidermal)PDGFR (Platlet-derived) and FGFR (fibroblast), for a broad spectrum inhibibitory effect. This product will add a synergestic effect to most proticals being used. the revivin helps with stimulating his immune system which works synergestically with the Angiostop.
