Treating and Preventing Cancer in Cats

Lymphoma is the most common type of cancer in cats, accounting for almost 33% of cat cancers. While lymphoma in general is caused by the same cellular degradation and malfunction as all cancers, gastrointestinal lymphomas’ development may be preventable.

Extensive research and advances in veterinary medicine and oncology have helped to extend the life of cats with cancer. Unfortunately, these treatments often take a large physical toll on the pet, as well as a great expense to the owner. Alternative therapies offer great hope, whether they are used to offset the toxic effects of cancer treatment, or, as an alternative to conventional treatment.

Conventional treatment includes chemotherapy, radiation, and a cocktail of toxic medications. This is pretty rough course of action for an already weakened immune system.

All-natural cat cancer remedies provide targeted nutrition to the compromised immune systems. This appraoch is especially helpful to offset the toxic effects of prescription mediation, and chemotherapy.

If your cat is experiencing chronic diarrhea, vomiting or other stomach upsets, and has not responded to conventional treatment, he or she is at increased risk for developing GI lymphoma.

Primary Causes of Cat Cancer

The foundation of a strong immune system is a healthy digestive environment. By providing your cat with SBO supplements, you can help prevent the development of lymphoma and cancer in your cats.

Since a compromised or faulty immune system contributes to cancer, it is logical to assume that adding supplements that support your cats’ immune system should help to prevent cancer in healthy pets, as well as encourage the immune system to fight back against cancer cells in sick cats.

The Roll of Good Bacteria

There are many causes, but recent research has shown that two of the cornerstones of pet ownership, vaccinations and manufactured pet foods contribute to immune system break down.

Since a compromised or faulty immune system ultimately leads to cancer, it is logical to assume that supporting the immune system can help to prevent cancer in healthy pets, as well as encourage the immune system to fight back against cancer cells in sick cats.

An abundance of good bacteria, or “Probiotics” will restore, the balance to the gastrointestinal tract. They help to digest nutrients, balance the pH, and maintain good health. In times of illness, the good bacteria die off at a faster rate, predisposing your pet to further illness, chronic vomiting and diarrhea, and a weakened immune system.

Be aware that there is a wide discrepancy in the quality and benefit of probiotics. Soil-based have no dairy component. Meaning no hormones, or antibiotics; neither are they pasteurized or homogenized. Soil-based are hardier, able to pass through the stomnach acid without being destroyed.

Routine supplementation with a broad spectrum soil-based probiotic formula can help to maintain, or reestablish the natural balance of your cat’s gut. Look for one that has at least 29 active strains.

If your cat already has cancer, fortifying their immune system can be a powerful adjunct to traditional therapies, making them more effective, and thus increasing the cure rate of cancer in cats and thereby extending their lives.
