…quite some time ago.  The book was really good in that it explained things so well...just not relevant to Tate.  So I'll do some research on the mushrooms...and "Anu"...although I hear rabbit meat is supposed to be very helpful.

… so is real feedback from users. Thanks for asking.

The most common supplements for cancer dogs seem to be immunity boosters. The best mushroom based supplements are all natural, with Power Mushrooms and K9 Immunity being the most popular. High quality fish oil, and a good joint supplement

One thing that seemed to help was when we began the power mushrooms. I think tazziedog said the same thing about her Tazzie, although she is not around to confirm that (heck – we can put any words in her mouth this

I have yet to try the Power Mushrooms, but will probably start them soon. Even though not needed to curb hunger, it certainly sounds like there are many other benefits. And, as Zack

They helped in many ways, keeping him energetic even as the "C" progressed. I don't know if this is relevant to you, but thought I'd mention it.

…I keep it to a minimum.

Supplements are important too – Giving algae based DHA is important 1500-2000mg/day. (I use Deva DHA) Also giving a mushroom Agaricus Blaziel from a company called Atlas World due to their extraction process. Both are shown to slow the cancer. I give about 25 pills a day

…was making my order for JD's mushroom supplements and the operator told me of an offer that is not yet on their web page.

They have combined the K-9 Immunity with the K-9 transfer…

…. This is quite a savings! I have no financial interest in the company so this is just for your information.

My procrastination in ordering JD's mushroom treatment has paid off.

The reason I started Boomie on Mush in the first place, was that after reading (2 years ago) about the possible benefits of mushrooms, including Jerry's clinical trials with the K-9 Immunity, and also on the BCD forum, I felt that there might be something to them, even if it might

…on the international market, many companies and rural growers produce A. blazei as alternative crop to increase income, but because interest in this mushroom occurred suddenly there has not been enough time for the scientific community to investigate it and, technology used for its cultivation is still…
