Cat Cancer Herbs
My cat is very ill. She is 14 years old at least (a stray we've had over 13 years). She has advanced stage mammary cancer, is in kidney failure and basically was sent home to die.
Her kidneys were too bad to do chemo or operate at this point (we are trying to get them better). The last few days she took a turn for the worst and is just laying there, won't come out from under the bed, etc. She looks almost catatonic. She breathes heavy. I took her to the emergency hospital and basically they said I should think about euthanasia.
They gave her a convenia shot (antibiotic) because she had a tumor on her stomach that was infected now the whole mammary chain is infected. She is on mizrapine for appetite and it usually works but isn't really working now.
I had her on herbs Essiac (just started) tea, which is burdock , blessed t histle, turkish rhubarb, kelp, and kidney support which is burdock, dandelion, cleavers. Anyway giving her the herbal medicines did seem to help her and keep her energy up. As it detoxed her kidneys and kelp and watercress in the essiac tea have large doses of vitamins, magnesium and potassium. I took her off of these the last few days.
Do you think I can safely put her back on? My fear is that they will:
1. Interact with the medicines
2. Render the medicines, especially the antibiotic shot useless, as they are detox herbs, I am afraid they will detox the medicine out.
I really felt the herbs helped her and since she isn't eating a lot it is giving her the vitamins & minerals she needs.
We are basically trying to get the kidneys better through azodyl and water to get them to the point she can have the surgery to have the mammary chain removed. She already had 2 tumors removed from it and they grew right back. I truly felt the herbs helped her.
