I would highly recommend the Essiac w/Pred for any fuzzy who has
Lymphoma...I know from experience and thru much research on the
internet and asking a lot of just have to make sure it
is the Rene Caisse Herbal formula at this website: there are others out
there and I cannot speak for them but my Taz did wonderful on this
and in the end it was not the Lymphoma that took her and she lived a
great life of 16 months after being diagnosed and passed away at the
age of 6.5 yrs ...A word of caution...this essiac I believe will
lower the blood sugar so if you have an insulinoma fuzzy (which Taz
was also) please use under the care of a vet along with the
Pred...since Taz was on a high dose of Pred that is what we believed
kept the insulinoma in check..
