When Tazzie was first diagnosed with bone cancer I looked into K9 Immunity and CAS Options but due to her large size I decided that the number of pills I would have to give daily and the cost of the product was unreasonable so I just have her on fish oil, Vitamin C, etc.  When my other dog Kona (65#) was diagnosed with a different cancer I looked into it again and my holistic vet recommended a product called Health Concerns Power Mushrooms, which is similar to K9 Immunity but much cheaper.  A bottle of 50 costs $8.95 and since this is a human product even a large dog like Tazzie only needs 2-3 tabs twice daily.  Much more in line with what I can afford and not too many pills!

I did a quick search on VIN and found that most holistic/alternative vets use this product for any cancer and it is very safe and a trustworthy company with pure products.  If your dog is currently getting chemo I would ask your oncologist first but I know that it is compatible with metronomic chemotherapy .

Just search the product name and you will find many websites that sell it.  You can also buy in bulk or get larger bottles.

Pam, thank you so very much for this good information! We noticed a TON of websites that sell it. That’s awesome.

We agree; too many pills can detract from our quality of life. The less, the better! Please let us know how it works for you.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
