SO My Boy Rusty Had surgery on Monday to remove a tumor on his anal sac. He is doing well. The vet just confirmed that it was Cancer. But given that is was a small tumor hopefully we got all of it. Rusty had high Calcium levels when We did a blood draw a few weeks back and the Dr. Diagnosed him almost immediately with the process of elimination. I looked up the term adenocarcinoma in Dogs and found an interesting website that I have gained alot of info from.
We have decided to just keep Rusty comfortable with Tramadol and Rimadyl for his time left with us. I have heard of putting Safflower Oil on his food... has anyone else heard of this for dogs with cancer? We Don't want to put him through anymore than he has to go through. 15 years is a BLESSING to have him with us!
Thank you for those who have kept my Boy in your prayers ... and may you continue to do so!
oh, no safflower oil! You want to use omega-3 fatty acids, preferably one that is higher in DHA, but at least one that is higher than 50% in combined EPA/DHA, and molecularly distilled is preferable. You need to add vitamin E with that too.

I am sorry about Rusty... We were told that this cancer is the not the fastest growing and a timely surgery can buy the dog another year or year and a half of life.
Our dog Mazur had a surgery to remove the same kind of adenocarcinoma three weeks ago. He is doing well, the tumor was completely excised, there are no metastases and his blood results are very good. We can put him through chemo to delay potential further growth, but we are also looking at alternative therapy. Today I came across this information about using Zeolite to treat cancer in dogs and tracked the study by a reputable University in Croatia: Dogs' cancer cure testimonials involving finely ground zeolites (natural clinoptilolite powder)
Zeolite and Bentonite are natural minerals often used to threat gastritis, ulcer, gum disease, wounds, and skin problems in humans. They are also commonly used for detoxification. I am familiar with their qualities, but did not know about the effect on cancer.
Has anyone used Zeolite to treat cancer in dogs? Will appreciate your input. We must make our decision about chemo within a week, while we are sure that the dog is cancer free.
