[I think I posted this previously in the wrong location]

Brief and specific question: 

Hi I would like to know the doctor's opinion on pro-active treatment for a cancer-free tripawd.  Specifically:  if there is no cancer and the doctors don't think there will be, should we be changing diet and using supplements like K9 Immunity and if so, why?

 

Longer background explanation:

Because we had a level 1 chondrosarcoma, our doctors did not believe that it was necessarily the case that the cancer had already spread.  So far, all checks are cancer free 8 months after amputation.  Our pooch is happy and zooming around back to normal, giving us the luxury to consider non-crisis care.  So far, our vets have not recommended a change in food, pills etc. 

I am interested to know the thoughts re diet and supplements (such as K9 Immunity ) under these circumstances – cancer free and no chemo.

Right now we haven't changed his food and he gets fish oil and joint supplements, but that's all.

Many thanks!

Just compiling some of the questions for today's show posted in that other topic Jerry started…

krun15 (aka: the pugapalooza)

I'm still curious about any possible links between chemo treatments
and later kidney function issues.  I know that Heather lost Zeus to
kidney failure (a recent post reminded me), and Maggie developed kidney
issues as well.Zeus and Maggie probably had different chemo protocols.  In the Dr.
bio above it says he is looking into strategies to limit the toxicity of
chemo drugs- I wonder if that extends to long term survivors and organ
function.

for a cancer-free tripawd.  Because we had a level 1 chondrosarcoma, our

We lost a 13 yr old Dobe to OS in 1998. At the time our vet mentioned
amputation and chemo which we opted out of due to his age. How much has
cancer treatment advanced in dogs in the past 10 years and what do you
see up and coming in the next 10 yrs.

Any more questions? Post them before 1:00 PM PST and we 'll try to ask them on the air!
