Cancer in Dogs – Early Treatment by Natural Primalix C-Care Helps Shrink Cancerous Tumors
Cancer in dogs is increasing in numbers across the United States. Statistics show that canine cancer is the #1 cause of death in dogs over two years of age. Fifty-percent of dogs over the age of 10 have a chance of developing cancer. Statistics show that one in two dogs will acquire cancer, and one in four dogs will die of cancer. In college statistics, I learned that numbers can be manipulated to mean anything the student wants. But no matter how you look at it, dogs are struggling with cancer.
Death has many colors for our canine friends. Euthanized dogs who are under two years of age are the #1 leading cause of death for dogs who are unwanted or abandoned. On the other side of the coin, we will all die of something and so will dogs. But new studies are showing us that cancer in dogs is like cancer in people. And the treatments are just as similar.
Offering natural medicine in the early stages is when we can see progress. Life is good in the early stages of life. Once cancer is diagnosed, it becomes a more difficult journey.
Dog breeds that are susceptible to cancer in dogs
Listed below are other dog breeds that have a higher at-risk rate of developing canine cancer:
- Bernese Mountain Dog – Histiocytic sarcoma
- Boxer – Brain cancer
- Chow Chows – Stomach cancer
- Collie – Nasal cancer
- Greyhounds – Bone cancer
- Labrador retrievers – Canine hemangiosarcoma and Lymphoma (hemangiosarcoma is a rapidly growing, highly invasive cancer that occurs exclusively in dogs. It arises from the lining of blood vessels. Death is caused by the rupturing of this tumor, causing the patient to rapidly bleed to death.)
- Poodles – Mammary tumors (incidence greatly reduced in dogs neutered prior to puberty)
- Pugs – Mast cell cancer
- Scottish terriers – Bladder cancer
Other dog breeds with cancer development are the Great Dane, Saint Bernard, and Boston Terrier. Mixed breeds and purebreds can also develop the deadly cancer, but the severity depends on the breeds in the mixes. For example, a Boxer and Labrador Retriever cross will be more apt to develop cancer than breeds that are not on the cancer list.
Cancer in dogs
If you have one of the breeds above or even if you do not, do a little research and see what type of cancer they are susceptible to. What are their symptoms? Being aware and recognizing steps for early prevention could very well save your dog. Cancer is described as a malignant growth with unlimited potential. I repeat …. unlimited potential.
Once diagnosed with cancer, located in the dog’s body are local cancerous tumors. They progress from the original site and invade other body systems through the process of metastasis. Obviously, this is not the early stages of cancer. But treatment for the cancer depends on when the metastatic tumor is identified and diagnosed. Early enough, treatment can be successful. Success with cancer treatments depends on two things:
- Be aware of the signs of cancer
- Detect it early enough that treatment can be successful.

We are driven because there is a hole in our soul where once was the love of our dog.” Gary D. Nice

Signs of cancer in dogs
According to the National Canine Cancer Foundation, there are 10 signs for dogs with cancer that all dog owners should watch out for. Research, study and take your dog to the vet. Maybe get a second opinion. By the time you see them, the cancer is already growing and in the latter stages:
- Abnormal swellings that persist or grow
- Bleeding or discharge from body openings
- Difficulty in breathing, urinating or passing feces
- Difficulty in swallowing or eating
- Loss of appetite
- Loss of stamina
- Offensive body odors
- Persistent lameness or stiffness
- Sores that do not heal
- Weight loss
The above 10 signs of cancer are the “tipping points” of cancer development in body. They are also referred to as the stages of decompensation. What is decompensation? It is the list above of 10 cancer symptoms, a breakdown of the body’s normal functions. Wikipedia describes it as “the functional deterioration of a previously working structure or system.”
Decompensation of the body as cancer in dogs takes over
According to the Guardian, over half of people with cancer are diagnosed too late, reducing their rate of surviving and making the battle a whole lot tougher. Dogs are the same. Those who are diagnosed with dog cancer with the above 10 signs had cancer in the early stages, moments when they looked and acted fine. People and dogs with cancer have a lot of the characteristics. An increase in studies of dogs with cancer have found that they are very similar to people with cancer. For example, safety features are incorporated into the physiology of the DNA. When the body is just beginning to become diseased and it feels a little “off,” our safety features begin to work to allow our body to work properly. No serious symptoms are seen or felt until the cancer is worse…a whole lot worse.
Once these safety features become overloaded, the dog’s body begins to decompose from cancer. The truth is, safety features of the body have a limit in strength and time to what they can do to help the body handle diseases. To “fix” your dog’s body, or even your own if you have cancer, before it reaches that point-of- no-return is vital. This weakened point is when cancer becomes too difficult to handle. Right before you see or feel those “10 signs of cancer,” the shift has begun, bringing about the early stages of decompensation.
I know it may be difficult, but it is best to test for cancer when the body is showing no sign of cancer…when you first feel as if something is wrong with your dog, and they are feeling a bit “off.” Treatment cannot begin until a diagnosis is given; and most people wait too late. Treating cancer with natural products at the very beginning, before chemo becomes necessary, will prevent the body from weakening.
How does Primalix C-Care work with cancer in dogs?
When we hear the word “cancer,” we get the chills. When we hear about it in regard to our pet, our heart breaks in two. By the time you get to the bottom of this article, you have discovered that early treatment for cancer in dogs is vital.
And …. there is hope if you begin early with Primalix C-Care , a natural product that is safe with no side effects, and works on all three diseases of cancer. Cancer is not just one disease, but a family of three diseases:
- Carcinomas begins in the epithelial tissue (a sheet of cells that covers a body surface or lines a body cavity. Two forms occur in the human body) – the lining cells covering the surfaces and interior structures of glands, vessels, and ducts.
- Covering and lining epithelium– forms the outer layer of the skin; lines open cavities of the digestive and respiratory systems; covers the walls of organs of the closed ventral body cavity.
- Glandular epithelium– surrounds glands within the body.
- Sarcomas are usually fleshy, somewhat rare, and develop out of connective and fibrous tissue, or directly from blood vessels.
- Leukemia and lymphomas are born in the blood-forming cells, bone marrow, and lymph nodes.
Misdiagnosis of biopsies
John Hopkins did a study on biopsies of prostrate cancer, as this is an area that is the most challenging to evaluate. They found a 1.5% misdiagnosis error every year at the James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute. Another misdiagnosis on prostrate cancer is when the biopsy misses the cancer entirely. And another problem … when the cut into the cancer helps the cancer spread before a positive diagnosis is ever made. The way to avoid any surprises is to get an expert second opinion. These are important reasons to begin treatment early before a biopsy is done or chemo is started in the middle to latter stages of cancer.
Another advantage of starting early with Primalix C-Care is that it was developed to shrink cancer tumors and maintain the health of the body. Some of the top herbs and most recommended for treating cancer in the Natural Wonder Pet product are burdock root, sheep sorrel, Turkish (Indian) rhubarb root, cat’s claw bark, and turmeric root.
- Burdock root (Arctium lappa) – a purifying herb that can be used to support the cleansing properties of the liver and kidneys. It serves as a blood purifier and helps to remove harmful toxins from the body. The root is made up of carbohydrates which increase the beneficial bacterium in the body and eliminate bacteria related to disease. The carbohydrates will also help to balance sugar levels due to hyperglycemia, stimulate the immune system and suppress abnormal cell growth in humans and animals.
- Cat’s claw bark (Uncaria tomentosa) – Since 1980, cat’s claw has been most commonly use in modern herbal medicine as an immune stimulant. The oxindole alkaloids in cat’s claw strengthen the immune system and also improve circulation by lowering blood pressure. The master rain forest herbalist Leslie Taylor has used cat’s claw tinctures and teas to treat cancer and HIV with remarkable success. Clinical studies show antitumor and anticancer effects on dog cancer and cat cancer as well.
- Sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella) – At least ten native tribes in Canada and the United States used Sheep Sorrel in herbal recipes for cancer. Sheep sorrel is detoxifying but, more importantly, directs all herbs in a formula to act on the cancer site.
- Turmeric root ( Curcuma longa) – Adding curcumin, the active substance found in turmeric, to human cells with the blood cancer multiple myeloma, Dr. Bharat B. Aggarwal of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and his colleagues, not only stopped cancer cells from replicating but also killed the cells that were left.
- Turkish (Indian) rhubarb root (Rheum palmatum) – nourishes the intestines, liver and blood. Down through the ages it has been proven to be highly antioxidant and used for cellular regeneration, cleansing, detoxifying, anti- cat and dog cancer, and diuretic action.
