Anal Sac Tumor in Dog - Seeking Urgent Remedies
Hello, hoping the EC community has some out-of-the-box remedies for me to try on my 15-year-old dog.
He was diagnosed last month with an anal sac tumor (carcinoma of the apocrine glands). I would never have known if I hadn't given him a few drops of an herbal remedy for arthritis called Solomon's Seal. It caused a healing crisis with diarrhea and then an anal abscess where I had to rush him to the emergency vet, who then discovered this tumor. It's the size of a thumb and has started to protrude to the left of and just below the anus.
Because of his advanced age and the type and size of the tumor, surgery and/or radiation are out of the picture. Which leaves me with just remedies to try.
I am on the 4th week of 500 mg/2x per day of Graviola supplement, which can reduce tumors. I also am trying a graviola compress made from steeped tea to which I have added colloidal silver. Thank you to Art for the suggestion! I am very sorry to report that it hasn't shrunk the tumor.
I need something to work fast while I give the graviola more time. Any suggestions for something that can penetrate into the tumor? Since the bulge is below his anal opening, I can put something topically on that area. Someone mentioned injecting baking soda solution into a visible tumor last week but did not leave any specifics. I would have to get a vet or vet tech involved for that procedure.
Any topical suggestions that use DMSO to drive it in? Appreciate any suggestions, thank you so much.
P.S Rob, the turpentine did not help my other dog's huge shoulder area bone tumor, unfortunately. Nor has the Graviola. She's on her last few days, unfortunately. Sad times here.
