Customer Question
How much of the following...
How much of the following supplements can I give my 32Lb beagle? or if any of the below listed are not safe for dogs. My vet and I have come to the consensus he has cancer of the prostate even though none of the tests say so but his prostate is growing
in size. As a result we have shifted to herbal treatment to manage symptoms. So I'd like to know how much of these herbs I can give him. He's not taking any prescribed medication except the occasional tramadol for pain associated with a previous back injury
(if it flares up) but at the moment its not so he's not taking any medications. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCL): Pure Coconut Oil: Whole Herb Turmeric Curcumin: Echinacea: Cat's Claw: Goldenseal: ESSIAC TEA: CASTOR OIL: if there are any other herbs you can think
of that may help please let me know.
