I see a holistic vet on thursday.  I read the artemisin blog and read that many holistic vets dont know much about this product.. So, I will take an equal role in deciding what Simon gets from the holistic vet.  Here are my thoughts based on research from tripawds:

Artemix. It has a longer shelf life than aretemisin   ( 12 hrs vs 4 hrs)  does it have enough artemisin in the formula?

butyrex-  enhances the effect of artemix ?? with a foul order 

armor up.  Does armor up satisfy all the major mushrooms we need for osteo??

milk thistle  -  helps the liver.  helps with pancreatitis   use for 3 weeks.. stop for 1 week,, etc.

alkaline water.   easy to do as I use this currently

fish oil ,krill  roatate every 2 weeks

Artemix is something I'm not at all familiar with, most people here refer to Artemisinin . Your vet should know something about it so it will be interesting to find out what s/he says about this therapy. It's not the most well-studied or proven treatment available, so it wouldn't surprise me if the vet suggests something else.Keep us posted.

Atremis is a trio of meds.  50mg of artesunate, 40 mg of artemether and 50 mg of artemisinin .   I read somewhere on the blog that some people are using this product along with more of the artemisinin

I met with a holistic vet today,,.who works closely with my onco vet,

Her big thing:


she said even grain free kibble has carbs that feed cancer,.. She suggested raw, I declined,. she showed me the freeze dried patties etc.. super expensive.. Compromise..: modified ketogenic diet.. she likes Dr. Harveys Pragmatic where I would add meat, oil,,( she likes coconut ). She likes  raw goats milk,( 6-8 ozs for dog over 50 #) sardines in water ,,  salmon - wild caught only and free range or pasture raised eggs  ( says cage-free can be tricky. 1000 chickens packed in an area without a cage can be called cage free.) 

After the kibble change,, she likes the medicinal mushrooms... I told her about armor up... I discussed armentisin,.- she didn't know of it.

Is anyone using Dr Harvey's  pragmatic with their own meat, oils, etc,,..?  is this a costly thing? easy to do?   I got a trial size from dr Harvey sending to me soon.   any different ideas to choose from?  I was  originally thinking of using my kibble with HK  ( this vet treats the dogs owned by the HK principal. ) 

If this is easy enough. i'm thinking

   pragmatic  with my meat and oil

   armor up

  armetisin and artemis??? 

  milk thistle

she listed.   mushroom blends, turkey tail and MRM.  Si mao san.. ( four marvels)  Hoxey boneset   suggested
