3 Safe Alternative Cancer Treatments For Dogs

Cancer is a tough thing to face and if your dog has just been diagnosed with cancer or a tumor it is devastating. There are many options to think about when faced with this diagnosis including options your vet has surely discussed. Cancer in dogs is unfortunately common especially for dogs 10 years and older. Depending on the type of cancer or where the tumor is located the treatment options can range from surgery to chemo.

The unfortunate reality of pet cancer is unlike humans the percentage of pet owners who carry insurance on their pets is small. When you are first discussing options, it is not surprising to be in complete shock at the cost. We know you will do anything for your pet but when traditional methods fail or it’s economically not feasible to go the traditional route you may seek some alternative treatments.


If you are at the beginning of your research this might be the first time you have heard of CBD. CBD or Cannabidiol is the non-pshyco genic compound found in both the marijuana and the hemp plant. This compound has been found to have a ton of proven benefits in humans and dogs including reducing seizures, epilepsy, and yes, shrinking tumors and aiding in the symptoms of various cancers. CBD is also available in dog treats, drops, or capsules making it easy and painless to administer.

Diet & Detox

One of the first things you will want to do after a cancer diagnosis is to clean up your dog’s diet. Veterinarians and holistic practitioners agree, getting away from the over the counter dog food and instead of feeding your pet a diet of homemade clean ingredients is advised. Some foods that are suggested to increase their immune system is the BARF Diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods) This is a high protein diet similar to what the species would eat naturally in the wild. Focus on raw bones, meat, vegetables, fruit with seeds removed, and whole eggs. You can also add cottage cheese or yogurt if they are finicky about the raw vegetables.

Acupuncture & Herbs

There is a ton of information online about herbs that you can utilize to treat your dog’s cancer depending on the diagnosis. Do your research and ask your veterinarian before moving forward with a treatment process of your own as many of those herbs unlike, CBD is under-researched. Acupuncture has also been used in dogs with cancer to help aid in treatments. For instance, one of the most common symptoms of chemotherapy for dogs is nausea and inflammation. Unfortunately, acupuncture can help with your dog’s quality of life but is less likely to cure your pet without the addition of conventional measures.

A cancer diagnosis for your pet can be overwhelming and there is a lot of information out there on methods to help cure your pet, however, we always suggest discussing any plans you have to treat your pet naturally with a professional familiar with your pets specific diagnosis. For more information on pet cancers and tumors, we have a full guide available that discusses the most common types of cancer in both cats and dogs and links to more information on each specific type.

  1. My Howie (15 in Nov!), started his 600 strength CBD Oil this last Monday, (he is a corgi catahoula mix with 4” legs but weighs 70 lbs) so we are 4 days in. I am giving him 1 full dose (30 drops) mid afternoon, then another 1/2 dose (15-20 drops), sometime in the evening and sometimes even another 1/2 dose 4am or so. *our sleep schedule is turned around;we go to sleep 6-8-10am and get up around noon or latest, 1:30pm, so our dosing is off and I am working on getting this adjusted.
    He seems to be responding well to it after months and months back and forth to the vet for what started as a severe upper respiratory and a mystery disease that we cannot ID. I suspect allergies and an exposure to an irritant | contaminate I cannot find-he is a sniffer. He turns 15 in November, I adopted him 8 1/2 with open wounds from allergies but then he never presented again until this last year. He has the typically oldie dog crunchiest but what ever he was exposed to, has made him hella sick, [bacteria AND fungus] with round after round of antibiotics and last round was coupled with anti fungals-which, we will never do again, ever-not worth the adverse affects on his old body. So I was desperately looking for something that would help him calm his entire system. Today, Howie hopped | sprung off our bed, onto his fancy platform I made him, to the floor super agile and fluidly! *last couple months, he inches to edge and swings his body down onto it.
    We walk twice a day most days and pretty far for an old wolf boy and I had no pain meds to give him for later when it caught up to him BUT this dose and quality CBD OIL seems to be helping. Typically, Howie starts the walks strong, then slows and makes several stops along the way to ‘smell the air’ but I am looking forward to seeing the longer term effects of your product that will give him some pain control at the end of our day-if I let him, he would go on 5 long walks a day-he always wants to walk far but coming back is tricky.
    We are ordering more so we are stocked up-the 3 pack bundle is great because he is going through a bottle pretty quick with 60 drops a day and I suspect we will go a tiny higher as we finally hit the cold in Texas.

    So, I am super happy about the bundles you offer and like I said, really looking forward to the long term effects of this product. I will be getting another round of blood work and x rays to keep trying to narrow down what exactly is going on with him but meanwhile, having this CBD OIL daily, is helping him just be an oldie dog with some pep in his step and not so much a sick oldie dog!
