This is probably what we need to hear on this list also the good
successes and bad successes of these herbal formula's...I know that I
have had great success with the essiac and know many people that also
have and then again some animals do not respond as well..just like
the Devil's club, I know several people who have used it with great
success and there will be others that have not..but isn't that the
same as in human medication, sometimes it works well for some and not
so well on others? Since this is something new all we can do is give
it a try and report what our findings are...but keep in mind that we
generally use this when there is no other alternative left to offer
our fuzzies...and sometimes this is offered too late to do any
good...but lets keep an open mind and compare notes. I just wish we
had an Holistic vet on board to give us a hand... Good luck to
everyone who uses these methods!!!!!!
