We just got word that my small 15 year old rat terrier has schwannoma tumor in his front right shoulder.  We have been giving him plain artemisinin (50mg twice a day) for 3 weeks and haven't noticed anything.  Looking to see if artemix might be a better fit.  If the recommended dosage of artemix is 1-2mg per lb and my dog weights 8lbs do I use one capsule and split up the contents 14 times (140mg divided by 10)?

Michael, sorry to hear about your pup. I've never heard of a schwannoma tumor but apparently it's in the same class as a peripheral nerve sheath tumor, from what I read on Google.

I'm not a vet so I'll let our Fairy Vet Mother Dr. Pam weigh in on this with her expertise, but keep in mind that it's always best to work closely with a veterinarian when attempting to treat a condition like this, especially when it comes to a more unconventional therapies. 

We wish you and your pup all the best in keeping cancer away. Please consider registering as a member so your future posts won't need approval, and keep in touch.

I have never treated a dog that small with artemix but if you go at the higher dose you could give 1/8th capsule.  Usually artemisinin is better for sarcomas so you might want to consider Stasis Breaker instead (Chinese herbal).  I would try to find a holistic vet in your area.
