Homeopathic Remedies For Canine Lymphoma

Canine Lymphoma

Although the primary treatment for Canine Lymphoma is chemotherapy, natural remedies can be quite beneficial and are recommended to help boost your dog's immune system.

EchinaceaRed clover, burdock root, milk thistle, dandelion, astragalus and echinacea are immune boosting herbs, and many of them promote the removal of wastes from the kidneys and liver, which increases immune function and keeps your dog healthy while undergoing more conventional treatments like chemotherapy. These herbs should be dried and given orally to your dog.


Diet is another important factor in aiding your dog's battle with Lymphoma. Dogs diagnosed with Lymphoma should eat an organic raw diet or a specific cancer diet that consists of low carbohydrates and high fat intake. A small intake of complex carbohydrates and rapidly absorbed sugars along with moderate amounts of high quality proteins and high intake of unsaturated fats is recommended. The unsaturated fats should be Omega-3 fatty acids like those contained in flax seed oil and not Omega-6 fatty acids, which increase cancer growth. The only risk associated with the high fat diet is pancreatitis, which can develop in some breeds. Monitor your dog for any problems or ask your veterinarian beforehand if she knows whether your dog is susceptible to pancreatitis.
