I was asked to post this for a member due to a glitch that occured which prevented the question from showing up.

My post with subject "new cancer treatment for pets?" was listed with only "attachment removed" in the text. I didn't have an attachment. Here is my complete message below. The quote in only a short "fair use" quote.


An interesting article about a new cancer treatment that is generating interest in the veterinary community. Might it have applications for ferret cancers?

It's referred to as the "Navy protocol" after a young golden retriever in whom all traces of agressive cancer disappeared after 10 weeks of treatment.

The treatment is a cocktail of so-called anti-angiogenic drugs, which
have been widely researched for more than a decade and work by starving
tumors of their blood supply.
