Pet supplements for leukemia in dogs and cats.Leukemia (Acute Lymphoblastic)

Herbal remedies to help adjunctively treat leukemia in dogs.

The immune system is a complex array of cells that are found throughout your pet’s body. Immune cells are designed to function in conjunction with one another to provide a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. It is an intricate system that keeps your pet healthy and protects them against all sorts of invaders including allergens, viruses, bacteria, microbes, parasites and toxins.

The immune system is also directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated. In cases of dysfunction, an animal’s body requires whole body systemic support. If your pet’s immune system is weakened, every body system is at risk.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is a disease in which cancerous lymphoblast’s (cells that are in the beginning stage of development) and prolymphocytes (cells in the intermediate stage of development) reproduce, and circulate through the bloodstream, entering into your pet's organs. The cells will also infiltrate both the inside of the bone marrow and the outside (extramedullary) of the bone marrow, displacing healthy, hematopoietic stem cells.

Hematopoietic cells are the normal, healthy precursors of red blood cells, lymphocytes, erythrocytes, platelets, eosinophils, neutrophils, macrophages and mast cells. Dogs with this disease will acquire impaired immunity, and will be inclined to contracting infections.

Symptoms of leukemia include:

Generalized illness (no specific symptoms)

Tiny, non-raised purple spots on the skin

Hemorrhages beneath the skin (petechia)

Dark red-purple spots on the gums

Ruptured blood vessels under the skin (ecchymotic)

Inconstant symptoms

Organ infiltration by neoplastic (abnormal) cells

Suspected causes include:

Ionizing radiation

Cancer-causing viruses

Chemical agents

Vaccinosis

Herbal Remedies:

Herbal remedies have a long history of use for the treatment of all types of cancer and tumors, to slow and limit progression of tumors and aberrant cells that cause tumors, to promote healthy cell response, to boost immunity and to limit inflammation, to  balance the immune system and for its anti-cancerous and anti-tumorous plant actions. 

Get Well Soon (learn more) is as an immune booster, an adjunctive cytotoxic (kills cancer cells) therapy against cancer cells and complementary therapy in cancer protocols due to its active content of Annonaceous acetogenins, for its significant anti-tumorous (slows growth), anti-cancerous activity (inhibits anaerobic cells while protecting healthy cells), broad-spectrum internal and external antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties against infection, for cysts and tumors, including fibrous, fatty, sebaceous tumors including cutaneous mast cell tumors (mastocytomas, mast cell tumors, sarcomas), lipomas, histiocytomas, adenomas hyperplasia and papillomas. Also used for the following types of tumors: hind quarter, deep tissue, lesions, polyps, warts, basal and mast cell, bone, brain, heart, liver, kidney, bladder, mammary, skin, stomach, eye, ear, nose, mouth and leg tumors.

Conventional Remedies:

Your veterinarian will take a thorough history of your pet’s health and onset of symptoms; a thorough physical exam and possible incidents that might have precipitated the condition; a complete blood profile, including a chemical blood profile and a complete blood count, and a urinalysis.

If cancer is suspected, your doctor will also need to take bone marrow biopsies (samples) for a microscopic (cytologic) examination of the cells. If malignant cancer cells are present, the examination will show lymphoblastic infiltration of the bone marrow. Abdominal x-rays may also be taken to check for an enlarged liver and/or an enlarged spleen

Patients can normally be treated on an outpatient basis. If your dog or cat has low levels of red blood cells, platelets (the cells responsible for clotting), or other blood clotting factors, it should be hospitalized and your vet may recommend blood transfusions to prevent excessive bleeding.

If your dog or cat has been diagnosed with leukemia, your veterinarian will also prescribe chemotherapeutic medicine to halt the growth of malignant cells. You will need to wear gloves when you give this medication to your dog.

If your pet is diagnosed with leukemia, you will need to keep it isolated from other animals. Your pets system will lack an immune response (immunocompromised) as a result of both the cancer and the therapy. In the process of destroying fast growing cancerous cells, chemotherapy will also destroy white blood cells responsible for fighting invasion, making your pet prone to infection. Even a simple cold can quickly become a fatal case of pneumonia. Red blood cells can also be affected, and a serious and side effect is anemia. And blood platelets, the cells responsible for coagulation (clotting), can be affected as well. A low platelet count can result in bruising and excessive bleeding. Animals suffering from this disorder are prone to hemorrhage from lack of platelets.

Your veterinarian will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your pet’s peripheral blood count and bone marrow status. Unfortunately, the prognosis for acute lymphoblastic leukemia is grave.
