Canine cancer. A single word can turn your entire life upside down. But cancer is not the dreaded disease it is made out to be. Neither does it have to end in death.
Let’s look at health in general first. Good health is all about a healthy immune system. It is not about controlling disease. If your dog has a healthy immune system, he simply won’t get a disease, or it will only be a mild one, of short duration.
There are several factors that are important in keeping your dog’s immune system strong, including:
- shelter from the elements
- access to good water
- lots of exercise
- nutritious food
Dogs are pack animals. They need company. If you are out all day, then they need the company of at least one other animal. It doesn’t have to be another dog. But it does have to be another animal who likes your dog and who your dog likes.
Dogs dislike being out in stormy, windy, wet, freezing or extremely hot conditions. They will always seek shelter when free to do so. So if your dog is an outside dog, make sure their shelter is warm, comfortable, doesn’t leak and is not noisy. A tin roof may frighten the living daylights out of a sensitive dog when it rains, or worse, hails.
Any water is preferable to no water, but good water would have no chemicals in, no fluoride. Rain water, filtered water, or pure spring water are all healthier than water straight from the tap. Cold water is often preferred in hot conditions. This can be obtained from using a ceramic dish, in an all day shady spot.
Dogs need exercise. Depending on their size and level of health, they need probably a lot more than you provide. If your time is limited, then teaching your dog to chase after (and return) a tennis ball throw with a racket in a safe environment, could be the answer. Two walks a day are the minimum, even if they aren’t very long. It’s also more healthy for you to get out a lot more than you may be doing.
By virtue of the frequency of meals, properly nutritious food is one of the most important aspects of dog health.
If you fail in any of these areas, your dog’s immune system will be too low to maintain good health. When the health of your dog deteriorates and you have him treated with veterinary medication, you will further lower his immune system. Veterinary medication doesn’t treat the cause of disease, it deals with the effect, often just suppressing the symptoms.
Every single dog (and every other animal) will try their hardest to survive. Giving a dog an immune suppressive drug will not necessarily have an immediate impact on his health. Systems spring into action to try to overcome this extra burden. But over time, they prevent your dog’s inbuilt survival mechanism from working. And so opening the door for canine cancer to develop.
This means, that you can also reverse the process, depending on how far developed it is, and what medication he has received.
You can reverse canine cancer. It is a man made disease. It is created by getting many important parts of a dog’s natural life wrong.
Apart from addressing the above factors, homeopathic treatment can be highly successful at restoring your dog’s immune system to its former glory.
Start feeding your dog nutritious food that will improve his immune system.
