I made an appt to see a holistic l vet . She is busy and an apt might not come for a few weeks., Should I get immunity plus now? I can tell already that she probably has all her own formulas etc, but I want to do the right thing,, proven by members here ,,as opposed to what she wants to promote/advise etc     thoughts?   dr hebbler    healing hope    san diego area,,

As far as the K9 Immunity Plus, I did give that to my Happy Hannah on a fairly consistent basis.  I gave her that as well as Apocaps .  

I DO feel like she had more energy when I was able to give her the K9 Immunity .  It can be a bit expensive when you have a large dog because of the number required daily, so I couldn’t  do it all the time.   It “seemed” as though I coild tell the difference  in her energy lecel when she was raking them consistently  versus not.

So that’s  my anecdotal  experience.  Whether it helped extend her life, I don’t  know.  I do feel like it added to her quality  though.

So yeah, I’d say go ahead and start.  Others will chime in with their experience.

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

We give the K9 Immunity Plus along with Apocaps .  It’s a bit less expensive to get it directly from K9 Medicinals, we buy 2 bags at a time, there’s a slight price break with that.  We also buy for large dogs, even though Fallon’s weight falls as medium, because the treats are the same dosage, it’s just a bigger bag with more in it.  Fallon loves them, but Maggie turns up her nose.  They are not for her anyway.  The other supplement we’re prescribed is Omega 3 oil, we buy Nordic Naturals.

We’re doing so much all at the same time so it’s hard to tease out what is helping–but our oncologist prescribed them so we do it. And she’s doing well.smiley

Fallon (Tripawd) and Maggie (quadpawd), Greyhounds.  Dawn and Paul, 2 leggers.

Fallon's left front leg was amputated due to osteosarcoma on 10/11/17.

We do feel that it gave Jerry a better quality of life for a longer period of time. Like Fallon, his oncologist was the one who recommended them. You can always start giving them however if you pursue chemotherapy your oncologist needs to know if you decide to give them. Oftentimes oncologists will want patients to go off all supplements during chemo; if there are any adverse reactions like vomiting or nausea, staying off supplements makes it easier to pinpoint and treat the cause. 

 I read about immunotherapy as supplements,,, isn’t the new vaccine immunotherapy?

Yes and yes. Immunotherapy is a relatively generic new term used to describe how the body uses the power of its own immune system to fight disease. Certain supplements, like mushroom therapy, can boost the immune system to help it do just that. And of course, so can the canine osteosarcoma vaccine.

One thing to keep in mind is that if you are paying for a holistic vet to guide you with treatments via supplements and such, it pays to follow their treatment recommendations. When they recommend something it’s not necessarily just because they want to make a buck but because they’ve seen success with other patients using those treatments. If you don’t follow their recommendations (or they are unaware of all the things you are giving your dog), neither of you will never know what really worked (or did not) to fight off the cancer. Make sense?

Clyde gets K-9 immunity plus every day, but I don’t always give him the full dose if I need to stretch the bag a bit. Sometimes it takes a bit of encouragement to get him to take them, but I do think he has more energy, his eyes are brighter and his coat is better with them than without (sometimes I run out and forget to order). I have no idea if it has played any roll in his longevity so far but I am certainly going to keep giving them to him big-grin
