Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] cancer

Freckles had been diagnosed with liver cancer. She is terminal. Do you
think using the herbal treatment of Essiac would help? or hurt . My
vet prescribed medicine when she was first brought in. Nothing else
since. Can I use infants Tylenol for pain?

I don't know about the Essiac, but tylenol (acetaminophen) is not used in
cats, ferrets because of a lack of an enzyme pathway needed to process it
in < yeah, the liver.
Also, in humans with liver failure (not sure about cancer without
failure), can't use tylenol/acetaminophen.
How about aspirin, or some of the long acting antiinflammatory
nonsteroidals(NSAID)? I think the NSAID, are also processed in the
liver, but maybe a different pathway?
