A Holistic Approach To Cancer For Milo The Silver Lab

Posted July 24, 2017

Spend a few minutes gazing at his photographs and we bet you’ll fall in love. This silver lab is 9 years old and is a pro at pulling off those puppy eyes. His cancer tale involves integrative care – holistic natural support along with chemotherapy. Milo’s cancer scare started in November 2016 and since then it’s been a roller coaster ride of mixed emotions. When he first started with chemo, the vet had said we’ll see if he’s still here after 3-6 months. But Milo is here and we are the happiest to be a part of his story..

Like with any progressive disease, we are taking it one day at a time. But just that we are making sure it is one happy day at a time.

Over to his mom for more:

My Milo was diagnosed in November thanks to a super caring vet who had a “bad feeling” about a 2nd lump appearing less than 2 months after the first was removed. She referred us to an oncologist who thought it was coincidence but did an ultrasound anyway. They found mast cells on his spleen. Vet said that had it gone undiagnosed, he most likely would’ve been gone in 2 months!

IV chemo has been literally a lifesaver. I wholeheartedly believe that the supplements  as well as a natural diet (which I started on October before he was diagnosed) are working with the chemo to keep him healthy! His last scans showed barely a trace of cancer!! And the Old Timer has been amazing! He has right hip issues and would struggle to get up after playing ball or any kind of exercise. His back end would also shake considerably because of the chemo.

Now he runs/jumps/swims with little to no noticeable issues! I couldn’t be more grateful to all the caring people, like your staff, who have patiently answered all my questions and researched the best options for Milo. It’s been 7 months since he was diagnosed. When we started chemo the vet said that “we’d see if he was still here in 3-6 months”. He’s here and he’s amazing and it’s thanks-in part- to you. 💖

Thanks to Milo’s Mum for sharing this with us. We’ve been watching our silver lab (that’s how we now call him) closely. We got to know his mom was stopping the supplements when Milo was going for chemo but we told her that there’s no such need. Our cancer supplements are perfectly fine to give along with chemo. We ensured Milo takes consistent dosage of his NHV supplements – The Cancer Fighter Pack which is 4 supplements – Es clear, Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Pet Omega3 and the Old timer. Because a missed dose in the case of herbal supplements can mean some hard work undone.

Somewhere along the road, as a side effect of chemo, Milo developed incontinence issues. Now incontinence is really something that can’t be dealt with. Once the muscles start working involuntarily there is very little you can do to stop those toilet accidents. And accidental urine puts you at the risk of urinary tract infections. We immediately added Tripsy to his supplies. We also suggested his mom to get Corn Silk powder from a health store and start adding that to his food (Home Tip – incontinence) Soon we got another happy update!

Hi! Just wanted to give you a quick update on Milo! He’s doing so well!! There’s a spring in his step and he’s running/jumping almost like a pup! Even his back end tremors have diminished! That Old Timer is fantastic! I added Tripsy and Turmeric into the mix and his “accidents” also seem to be diminishing.  It’s been so great having my boy almost back to normal, thank you so much for all you guys do!! 💖💖💖

Latest update after Milo’s vet visit in July 2017

Hello! Fantastic news today! Milo’s scan came back CLEAR! No sign of mast cells in his spleen! The vet recommended ending IV chemo and switched him to an oral maintenance drug every 3 weeks. Couldn’t be happier and more grateful for all your fantastic supplements! 💖

We are now excited to get Milo started on our new Cancer supplement – Natures Immuno. Natures Immuno helps cancer pet patients with the power of 5 medicinal mushrooms that are being widely researched in the medicine industry for their cancer fighting and tumor reducing properties. It is great for the heart, for the respiratory system and for the endocrine system. We are positive this blend will help our Milo further and we’ll have another happy update to add to his tale.

Milo’s humble Mom also left for us a great review on our Facebook page:

I love the products from NHV! I’ve been using the cancer bundle and Old Timer for my lab for the past few weeks and they are definitely a big help in keeping him healthy! The staff at NHV are AMAZING also! So helpful and willing to answer every question I have. Can’t say enough good things about this company!

You can follow Milo too! His is on Instagram and is too cute too miss.

We love it when pet parents place their trust in us and come back to us with updates and questions. Which is why we almost feel like Milo is our own pet. The closer you keep us, the better we will be able to help you. There is no one uniform path out there. A holistic approach generally means tweaking, adding and subtracting things as time passes and as the body ages. You have to make sure the whole body is prepared to fight the battle as it is never one organ alone that is affected. Sometimes we will need to help the kidneys, other times we will need to help the heart. But unless you don’t reach out to us, we will never know what your furkid really needed.

We urge all the pet parents out there to please keep us updated with changes in their pets’ health. We’re there for you with all our hearts.

Yours in wellness. ❤️

    Very emotional story for me. Lost my first dog Casey to cancer. Glad to see a happy ending to Milo. May you have many more years of love and happiness with Milo.

      Sorry to hear about Casey. Losing a pet is never easy. And losing a pet to a disease like Cancer is the worst. We know the helpless feeling. 🙁 Thanks for all the love for our silver champ, Milo. He sends you love too!
