Holistic Cancer Treatment and Prevention in Pets

August 24, 2021

Did you know that more than 50% of dogs over the age of 10 are diagnosed with cancer each year?

There's nothing a pet owner fears more than hearing that their beloved furry friend has cancer. Not only can cancer treatments be hard on pets, but cancer is also almost always fatal, even with conventional cancer treatment.

Holistic cancer treatment for pets can help to prolong their lives without compromising the happy, comfortable lifestyles they enjoy. Animal Care Center of Castle Pines offers holistic veterinary services in the Castle Rock and Castle Pines area. Our holistic treatments and prevention methods will improve your pet's quality of life.

Why Should I Choose Holistic Cancer Treatment?

Holistic cancer treatment offers an individualized approach for each pet, focusing on wellness throughout the entire body. Holistic cancer treatment won't just treat the existing, presenting symptoms or complaints-it will treat your pet's body as a whole. Not every pet is the same, and not every pet's holistic therapy and treatment regimen will be different.

Holistic therapy is not generalized like conventional cancer treatments. We will plan your pet's holistic treatments, diet, supplements, acupuncture therapy, and more on their environment, medical history, diet history, and other factors specific to your pet's lifestyle.

Conventional cancer treatments combine radiation, surgery, and chemotherapy. Although these methods have the ability to destroy cancer cells, they can cause a number of side effects and result in diminished quality of life during and after treatment. Holistic cancer treatment has the ability to treat cancer in pets without significantly decreasing their quality of life.

Cancer Treatment and Prevention in Pets-Not All that Different

The treatment and prevention methods for cancer in pets can be viewed as two sides of the same coin. The way we work to prevent cancer in the same way that we work to treat cancer if it is detected.

Food therapy plays a big role in both the treatment and prevention of cancer in pets. Current research suggests that cancer is primarily an inflammatory disease. Fresh, whole foods have anti-inflammatory properties that can significantly improve your pet's health and wellbeing, which is why nutrition is one of the first lines of defense when treating and preventing cancer holistically.

Acupuncture and Aromatherapy as Holistic Cancer Treatment

Holistic treatments like acupuncture and essential oils treat cancer painlessly. Acupuncture stimulates the immune system, which works to remove abnormal cells growing inside the body. Acupuncture can also decrease pain and inflammation, and the endorphins released during acupuncture treatment will improve overall health and wellbeing.

Aromatherapy using essential oils can support the immune system, help manage pain, and influence emotional stability. With hundreds of different essential oils to choose from, aromatherapy is a very individualized treatment geared specifically to each individual's needs.
