My 12 year old cairn terrier was recently diagnosed with nose cancer a couple of weeks ago after she started bleeding from the nose. We opt not to undergo radiation or chemo. We started her on a product called ES Clear. I was also reading about people offering milk thistle to their sick dogs. Would milk thistle help?
Type of Animal: Cairn Terrier
Age: 12 1/2
Name of Dog: Casey
ES Clear, Nzymes supplement
Where can I get that? In a health food/vitamin supplement store like VitaminWorld?
Ok, I can ask my regular vet. We are trying to stimulate her appetit. She absolutely refuses to eat any food on her own, after her rhinotomy about 2 weeks ago, when a biopsy was done of the tumor. She drinks water on her own and mostly sleep. Her condition went from fairly normal to downhill so quickly in a matter of a month. We've been feeding her pureed fresh refrigerated dog food along with eggs & Nzymes supplement in a syringe, along with antibiotics supplied after her surgery. She is able to do bowel movements every other day. I am hoping that the product ES Clear will make her more comfortable and more receptive to eating again.
Yes, she also is taking a non steroid anti inflammatory called metacam. I don't quite recall the name since the bottle is at home.
I will ask my regular vet about that. Thank you for your time.
