This is the first in a series of posts in which we will be discussing different canine cancer supplements, what they are used for, and how they may fit into your dog’s cancer treatment program. While some supplements are only available through veterinarians, many can be purchased over-the-counter. PLEASE NOTE: Always consult your veterinarian (and oncologist) before making any changes to your dog’s diet or supplement plan to ensure that you are not inadvertently counteracting any conventional medical treatments or potentially creating any additional health issues.
With the wealth of information available now in books and on the internet about canine cancer, the average pet owner will find dozens of recommendations regarding supplements to use to help fight cancer. It can be overwhelming — especially if you are not one of the fortunate few to be able to work with a holistic, or holistically-minded, veterinarian. In these cases, pet owners often take it upon themselves to design their own supplement program for their dog, which usually includes several different products. It’s not uncommon for dogs with cancer to begin taking 5-10 different products to help with everything from digestive upset to immune system support. That’s a LOT of supplements to keep track of!
ONCO Support by Rx Vitamins for Pets is a cancer support supplement that aims to eliminate the need for so many different products with its proprietary blend of cancer fighting nutraceuticals and botanicals. Developed by Robert J. Silver, D.V.M., M.S., C.V.A., this formula can help “increase patient vitality as well as improved immune system resistance.”
If you’re familiar with the basics of canine cancer supplement recommendations, you’ll recognize many of the individual ingredients: L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, Medicinal Mushrooms, Green Tea Extract, Vitamins A & D, Selenium, and the list goes on. All conveniently balanced to help you keep your dog as strong and healthy as possible throughout their battle with cancer.
ONCO Support is only available through veterinarians and is already being used by many of the major animal cancer centers across the country. It is also recommended by many holistic veterinarians including Dr. Shawn Messonnier, author of “The Natural Vet’s Guide to Preventing & Treating Cancer in Dogs” and “Unexpected Miracles.” If you are interested in finding out if ONCO Support may help your dog, talk to your vet and find out if they are familiar with the Rx Vitamins for Pets line of products. They can then contact the company to receive extensive information on the science behind ONCO Support and how to successfully integrate it into your dog’s care.
