My beloved sophi was diagnosed with large cell lymphoma with in the last few weeks. What do folks on here know about recover and holistic treatment? Thanks for your kindness 😊
The vet was an emergency vet and was not overly optimistic. Sophi is seven years and seven months. A steroid was prescribed it made an immediate difference but I know this is the beginning of the end. I’m just disappointed because I thought her awesome diet would prolong life. I guess I’m not God🤣. I’m very saddened and find myself in tears during our walks.I'm so sorry that Sophi has been diagnosed. 😢 Thankfully I have not had this diagnosis with my dogs ever...though bone cancer was the one that took most of my Rottweilers. How old is Sophi?? That may make a difference in what you plan to do. From what I have read...chemo treatments may buy her some time. Not sure if the cost, and the treatment are worth it for her quality of life?? The treatments can put them into remission for a while...but it most often comes back.
Check with a holistic vet and see if there are some treatments that can make her more comfortable. Often prednisone is given to slow things down...but it does not work for too long. What does your vet say?
For now spoil her, and love her and make every day special.
Thanks for the well wishes. No she’s not an old girl and I’m disappointed that my whole food diet didn’t prevent this.I am not sure about lymphoma, but we spoke with a holistic vet when our girl was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. She recommended a series of high-dose Vitamin C IV infusions, and a turkey tail mushroom supplement. We noticed a lasting improvement in energy level after the Vitamin C infusions. Too soon to know if the turkey tail is making any difference. We also added CBD oil to our girl's meals and that definitely helped with pain. I'll be thinking of you and Sophi.
I know the feeling....you try so hard to keep them healthy, feeding the best of foods and giving them what they need with exercise and lifestyle and they still get sick. Some things are out of your control. I always wonder about lawn treatments? The chemicals that are used for weeds, and grass. Even if you don't use them on your own lawn...your dog can still be walking through those chemicals on their daily walks.Thanks for the well wishes.
