Customer Question

My toy poodle has a bleeding tumor in his jaw. what can I do to help him. The vet says there's little I can do. I believe he can heal! So does he!
I'm feeding him purified food with a syringe. He can eat tiny pieces of ground meat but it seems to promote bleeding.
I'm giving him liquid vitamins with iron to prevent anemia. He loves ground beef with veggies. I'm adding oatmeal and flax to it also.
Can i give him liquid vitamin can?
Will ginseng help? If so how much of each?
Any advise will be helpful.

Can you share pictures of the tumor?

Have any diagnostics been performed such as x-rays or biopsy?

Do you have a histopathology report to share on what type of tumor this is?

When did symptoms first arise of the tumor?

Is your companion able to eat normally or is the tumor causing difficulty?

Can he drink normally?
