I wanted to give you a quick update on Marshall. I come on once in a while to check on the other Tripawds but mostly trying to live like we did before OSA. We are now 4 months post amp 5 months post obvious symptoms and Marshall is still a maniac! He still runs and fetches like nothing is different for him and he's happy. I have noticed an increase in panting not due to exercise or heat and he seems to tire more easily. I am going to schedule a phone consult with Dr. Loops this week to see if we need to change any of his remedies. He is currently taking:
Metacam 60# dose
4 K-9 Immunity
2 Brewers yeast
Alternating days of Heckla Lava, Sulfur and Carcinoscin
I didn't switch his food he has always eaten Natural Balance grain free fish and sweet potato. I have added in one raw egg/week plus eggs, Greek yogurt and cream cheese and/or cottage cheese. The cream cheese and cottage cheese are used only to take his Artemix,artemisinin and Butyrex.
We also do his Artemix,artemisinin and Butyrex every other night now. We did it every night for over two months. We also gave him a week break from it when he had some vomiting issues recently but those seem to be related to him eating mulch.
I wanted to post his protocol in case it can help another tripawd. I highly recommend Dr. Loops. He only manages the cell salts, Heckla lava, sulfur and Carcinoscin parts of his protocol. We are really happy with our decision to not proceed with Chemo. Marshall is having really good quality time and doing better than I ever expected.
Hope everyone is doing well!!!!

It's so nice to hear from you! Here's to Marshall the Maniac!!! It's wonderful to hear that life is good and treating you both so well, it sure does sound like you're both living life to the fullest. Yay!
Thanks so much for posting his supplements and nutrition protocol, it is very helpful for others to see how you're doing your best to fight cancer. Hope you don't mind that I moved it here to "Eating Healthy" but since we're talking about supplements I though it would be easiest for people to find it here.
Anyhoo, his protocol reminds me a lot of many other bone cancer heroes who are or were under Dr. Loops' care, like our buddy Eisen, who survived osa for more than 4 years! He was also on Dr. Loops' protocol, which you'll find here. And so many others have done great with similar protocols, you're doing awesome!
Got any pics? We'd love to see them. Thanks again for sharing.
