Thread: One of my dogs might have bone cancer.

  1. #1

    Default One of my dogs might have bone cancer.

    He was taken to the vet today because he was limping. The doctor said he might have bone cancer. I just want to know if feeding him apricot seeds would work for a dog(if it even works). Don't have anything to lose. If so, where could I just buy the seeds? I've never seen any apricots in any grocery store around here. He's a good dog, only three years old. He doesn't deserve this.

    I'm very sorry to hear this. One can often find apricot kernels at the health food stores. I would be cautious giving them to the dog though.

    Can I give raw apricot seeds to my pet for cancer prevention or cancer treatment?

    Yes, but grind the apricot seeds up first. Then consider the size of the pet in relation to a human and adjust the apricot seed dosage accordingly. We have numerous testimonials on this web site stating that apricot seeds cured people's pet's cancer and their veterinarians were shocked.

    Thanks! I already lost my dad to this disease. This dog is my Mom's fiance's dog, but I love his dog like he was my own. I think he might be more willing to look into these things.

    My dog had a red bump a few months ago, according to google it was likely either some harmless condition that clears itself up in less than a month or possibly cancer. It ended up clearing up in a few weeks, but I did give him a little bit of crushed apricot pits while he had it (also occasionally treated the area with tea tree oil). I'm pretty sure it was the less serious condition, though.

    Might wanna get the seeds shipped overnight if you can..I would also recommend adding a little bit of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar (shake bottle well first) and a squeeze of lime to the dog's water bowl. A human dose is 1-2 tsp in an 8 oz glass of water once or twice a day, but that makes a really strong concoction that you would want to chase down with some regular water - maybe even brush your teeth after to bring the acidity in your mouth back down for your teeth's sake. Dunno if your dog will drink it that strong.. so might be better to dilute it very heavily and just let them drink it over time.

    I would also recommend grain-free food.

    Let us know how it goes. Do you know if/when you will get a diagnosis? I mean, this could possibly just be an injury from impact or something, too, right?

    I'm sorry your dog is sick. I know nothing about natural remedies, but I'm really sad for you.

    This is critical for any dog in my personal view. I feed only Honest Kitchen brand. Which is non-gmo/grain free human grade food. Of course, I chop up healthy raw meats and whatnot, too, and throw in there.

    Aww, sorry to hear your dog's not well. Hopefully, the seeds will get him on the road to recovery.

    I hope the apricot seeds work and you have many more years together.

    Don't apricot seeds contain cyanide?...at low levels?
    Bone cancer is very difficult to treat. If it is confined to a limb, they will recommend amputation.
    Amputation was not an option for my dog because it was in his 7th cervical vertebra.
    Here are a couple of websites:
    http://www.wearethecure.org/contact-us (Support and help with fund raising for treatment bills)
    http://caninecare.us/ (this possibly prevented my dog's bone cancer from metastasizing to his lungs)
    And if you are n the states:
    http://naturalhemp.org/pure-hemp-cbd-source/208609788 (this reduces the need to take steroids like prednisone as anti-inflammatories, which suppress the immune system).
    PM me if you want to discuss. Very sorry to hear about your dog. I wasted two months just thinking he'd pulled a muscle.

    Sorry to hear about your dog.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    I highly recommend going with a raw diet for your dog. Here is a link that is about diet and cancer in dogs:

    Thanks to everyone so far. I've texted my mom all of these links. The dog is a golden retriever. He's a sweet dog only three years old. He doesn't deserve this.

    Yes, they do.

    Conclusions and Lacunae

    Death by apricot kernels appears to be rare, consuming more than 20 kernels at once can lead to serious negative reactions, but again, there are few recorded cases, and milder negative reactions can occur with eating about five to ten kernels at once.

    The data triangulate well, but, as is obvious from table 1, the empirical basis of these summary statements is weak. We would eventually like to say with confidence what the lowest observed adverse effect level (LOAEL) is as well as what the no observed adverse effect level (NOAEL) is.

    In addition, major mysteries remain.

    Thousands of people have purchased and presumably have eaten apricot kernels. Young (1992), in fact, states that in the 1970's, apricot kernels were “in vogue,” and even today they are widely advertised on the internet. Why do reports of apricot pit toxicity appear so rarely in the professional literature or even anecdotally, especially when the anti-laetrile establishment is so eager to cite the few that do exist? Is apricotpit.com correct in stating that negative reactions appear in only a few cases?

    Of course, such reactions could be common but simply not reported. More likely, serious negative reactions are in fact unusual.

    A second mystery is how people are apparently able to accommodate to apricot kernels, having negative reactions at first but gradually building up to higher doses (see e.g. cgeordge's report, cited above).

    One website gives the following advice: “If you do not have cancer and you want to prevent it, eat 7 to 10 apricots seeds daily (start out at a low dosage, such as 1 or 2 at a time and work up to 7 to 10) “ (http://www.1cure4cancer.com/continue_pp2.htm).

    How does accommodation occur, and what are the best schedules to follow in “getting used to” apricot kernels?

    The third mystery is why there is so little research on the relationship between consuming apricot kernels and negative reactions.

    I suspect that a major part of the problem is the widespread belief that Laetrile is useless against cancer. Anti-Laetrile writers have seized on the few studies of apricot pit toxicity and have cited them again and again, giving the false impression that apricot pits are dangerous and no further research is necessary.

    But the case against Laetrile as an anti-cancer agent has not been made. It has been argued that studies “proving” that Laetrile is useless are deeply flawed (Griffin, 1997; Moss, 1966; Krashen, 2008, 2009). In addition, the professional literature contains a number of reports of patients who did well with Laetrile, reports written by professional physicians who reported the cases carefully, and are not in the business of selling apricot kernels (e.g. Morrone, 1962, Navarro, 1955, 1970, 1975; Navarro and Lagman, 1956; Navarro et. al, 1957, 1958). These cases cannot be ignored, and there are too many of them to attribute all to fraud, misdiagnoses or spontaneous remission.

    Despite the pessimism of the medical establishment, people continue to consume apricot kernels, and if future studies on the efficacy of laetrile are positive, consumption will increase. It is essential that we improve the state of knowledge on the possible toxicity of apricot kernels.
    Perhaps, if apricot kernels do in fact have an impact on cancer, the reason is a combined one, laetrile compounds and arsenic as a chemo agent.

    Bummer. A friend had the same problem with his golden. They amputated the leg, and it lived many years as a three legged dog.
