Aloha,

Having just had my Glory diagnosed with osteosarcoma (left front humerus head), we've been combing the web for help. Are there any testimonies (good or bad) on a product called K9 IMMUNITY & K9 FACTOR? Of course the website has great testimonies but I'd like to know from someone not on that website.

Thanks in advance.

Here and Now

Hi Karilynn57! Thanks for the comment, if you register and log in when you comment your posts will appear immediately without requiring moderation.

There is lots of discussion about K9 Immunity and Transfer Factor here in the forums. We also wrote about Jerry's K9 Immunity clinical trials and his results after using K9 Immunity in the news blog. There is also this good discussion going about K9 Immunity and other AHCC / mushroom therapies for canine cancer.

Hope this helps. Best wishes to you and Glory.

I'm sorry that you have to be here, but glad you found us.  Be sure to register because this site ROCKS as far as information and support!!!  My 8 year old Golden Retriever also had osteosarcoma and had a front amputation in late July.  We started him on the K9 Immunity and Transfer factor shortly after that.  Now, I don't have a long term testimony but I can tell you this:

1.  When I went to a natural foods store to see if they had anything they recommended for him, they suggested a transfer factor and immunity supplement.

2.  A close friend of mine owns a pharmacy and recently his dog was diagnosed with (really advanced) lung cancer.  Knowing that we've been dealing with this for a while, he called me to see if there was anything else that he should be doing that he hasn't started yet.  When I mentioned K9 Immunity , he knew about it and had already ordered it.  He said it was definitely a good thing and since he's a pharmacist, I figured he knew what he was doing and if there was a way to get it better/cheaper, he'd be able to do it.

3.  It generally doesn't hurt anything, and it may seem silly, but I like the fact that at least I'm doing something...

4.  It's easy to give.  McGwire generally is somewhat picky about pills (though nothing like some of the dogs on here!) and I just throw the pills into his food and he gobbles them right up.  The transfer factor 'tablets' are big but they must be tasty!

5.  I swear McGwire feels somewhat better because of it.  He seems to be feeling better, and 6 weeks after the first chest x-rays, he's had no lung metastisis (we aren't doing chemo because of his immune system issues.)

It's expensive, but I feel like it's worth it.

Thanks Admin & macsmom,

Indeed that stuff sure is expensive, and I really don't know if I can afford it. I've also read so much about diet and the foods sick dogs need. We've made a screeching halt in Glory's diet. Today I baked beef liver all day, drying it out for hours. These will replace her cheap Costco biscuits.  She'll now have breakfast and dinner--both of which are high protein and high fat---meatballs and eggs, fish oils and other immunity enhancement OTC stuff. She is quite happy about that.   This is suppose to beef up her immunity (no pun intended) so we'll see.  I read somewhere on this site 'there are no bad decisions" so we'll see what happens with this diet switch.

Thanks again.What Ever

k9 medicinals has K9 Immunity on sale for a limited time ($5 off but hey, it's something!).  That's where I order mine from and they always send a hand written note on the receipt (the first to say sorry about the diagnosis, the second to say congratulations he was doing well still) which always makes me happy 🙂

@karilynn: Thanks for sharing Glory's diet details!

@ldillon: Thanks for sharing the savings link!

PS: We totally understand the need to save these days, but for anyone who doesn't mind spending the extra five bucks, please know that purchasing K9 Immunity from Amazon helps support our efforts to maintain this website. Winker

Hey guys, hope it's OK that I moved this to "Eating Healthy," since K9 Immunity is a supplement after all.
