Hello, It's been a long time since I've been on this webboard.
Rosco (9 yo GSD) had a small mole on his upper thigh since he was a puppy. We were told not to worry about it. Last year he started gnawing on it and made it raw. We took him to our vet who is a holistic type vet. She said it was cancer.
She recommended the topical neoplasene. It worked great. It's kind of scary, because it just eats up the cancer, but leaves the clean tissue alone. The spot started about the size of a dime and after the treatment (he required 2 treatments) was about the size of a half dollar. You have to be prepared for the process. It litterally opens it up and there is a gaping hole, which eventually will drain allot of the junk out. It requires a lot of bandage changes. But it does start closing up once all the cancer is eaten up.
Rosco's first round went fine. Almost a year later, he ended up with another spot, this time on his knee. This time she treated it with neoplasene injections. It's the same process but not quite a messy. It does end up opening up with a hole, depending how large the cancer mass is. Still alot of bandage changes and keeping the area moist so the neoplasene can work.
Well, earlier this year, he ended up with another spot, this time at the ankle. Again neoplasene injections. Although the neoplasene has worked he has in the mean time developed mobility issues.
I took Rosco to another vet for a second opinion and he said that Rosco had severe nerve damage in his leg. So, I'm not sure if all the treatment has contributed to this or what. We also did a chiropractice treatment x2 and accupuncture x2. He seemed to walk fine after the neoplasene, but things seemed to deteriorate after the accu.
Otherwise, the neoplasene did work.
