You are welcome. Thank you for the update.
I am sorry, The computer mixed up my questions! I apologize, I thought I was with someone else. The only way to really stop a tumor bleeding is to (obviously) remove the tumor. There is a Chinese herb called Yunnan Baiyao, that can be helpful to control bleeding.
The tumor being in the mouth limits using a topical product like peroxide, or Quik Stop. You cannot use those inside the mouth.
I sometimes try mixing epinephrine with saline, and applying that topically, in very tiny doses. That can control bleeding for awhile.
Sorry for the first reponse. The website has recently changed how we see and answer questions, and it is still confusing to me.
Yunnan Baiyao comes in capsules. It can be applied directly and also given orally. You can find it online and in stores that carry Chinese herbs.
Interesting story. It was invented by a Chinese soldier in WWII who was told he needed to have his leg amputated, and he saved his own leg with this herbal treatment.
No, you can't get epinephrine over the counter. A veterinarian would haves to mix it for you.
I hope it helps, and that you meeting with the specialists goes well. Let me know what you find out, and how he is doing, and if I can help with or answer anything else.
You are welcome. I hope you hear good news.
