Hi all, 

We have a 9-year-old golden retriever, Charlie, with front left leg amputation due to osteosarcoma.  He is five months post-op and doing very well.  He completed Elias Immunotherapy treatment in early November 2022 and had our first CT scan in January, and he was all clear.  Yay! We also started physical therapy and water treadmill exercises, and he is progressing nicely.  The doctors are pleased with how well he is doing.  The doctor recommended we look into I'm Yunity mushrooms for cancer recurrence/metastasis prevention.  I started him on this; however, it is pretty pricey.  While I am all about pulling out all the stops to give our boy the best quality of life, I was wondering if anyone had any other mushroom recommendations.  I also have him on a Chinese herb, Gui Pi Tang. 

I have also transitioned his diet to a combination of Kidney diet wet food, chicken, rice, and veggies.  I have to be cautious not to give him a high-protein diet since he also has kidney disease. 

I appreciate any feedback or suggestions. 

Thank you,

Charli

Charlie is rockin' the life! What a pawesome update! He's getting such super good care and you are asking some great questions.

I'm Yunity is a stellar product, and one that's been studied at the University of Pennsylvania. We wrote about it many years ago:

You really want to be careful with any mushroom therapy product because a lot of them are made in China and lack any kind of quality control or contaminants testing. K9 Medicinals' products are our #1 recommended mushroom therapy because they have the strictest quality control and are 100% made in the US. See:

As for diet, have you considered working with a nutrition therapist to get him a customized recipe that will help him fight cancer and keep his kidneys healthy? See:

If you haven't already, see The Dog Cancer Survival Guide for some other nutrition tips. It's a must-read for anyone who has a dog with cancer.

Hope this helps!
