A cancer diagnosis is one of the hardest things to hear from your vet. The word alone can cause any pet parent to panic, as it immediately brings thoughts of hardship and grief to mind. There are several options that pet owners are given at this specific time, and they can range from conventional treatment like chemotherapy and surgery to more alternative methods. Hopefully, youâve talked with your vet and decided upon a course of action thatâs right for your pup.
As with cancer in humans, the exact causes of dog cancers are not known. Genetics may be a possible contributing factor, while other factors may include:
- Diet (including food additives)
- Environment (e.g., polluted water and air)
- Advanced age and stress
All these factors can weaken a dog's immune system and their natural ability to fight cancerous cells. But where do cancerous cells come from in the first place?
Cancer starts when a healthy cell is damaged and starts to multiply out of control. This cell damage can occur when there is an over abundance of âfree radicalsâ. Free radicals are unstable molecules that are aggressively trying to stabilize themselves by stealing from other surrounding molecules. This continuous process creates a growing number of new free radicals. Without achieving stabilization through antioxidant support, these free radicals will grow in number and eventually cause damage to the bodyâs cells.
Some free radicals are normally present in the body but more accumulate as we age. Free radicals can increase when we are exposed to radiation, cigarette smoke, herbicides and toxic chemicals including many household cleaners and outdoor pollution.
By keeping your dogâs immune system strong and helping to keep his or her mood positive, you will support your dog's ability to deal with cancer. Youâll also keep him or her happier and more comfortable. Give your dog the best chance of a high quality of life!
What is Life Gold?
Life Gold is an herbal formula developed for pet owners looking at the option of holistic medicine for dogs with a compromised quality of life. Pet Wellbeing has combined a potent blend of herbs into an all-natural support for your dogâs overall well-being. Cancer treatment for dogs can be intense, taxing, and necessary. When used in tandem, Life Gold can help your dogâs system to function at its best during your veterinarianâs prescribed treatment.
What is Life Gold used for?
Life Gold supports your pet's long-term vitality and wellbeing. Life Gold provides support for antioxidant function in the body and may reduce free radical damage. It effectively helps the body to excrete toxins normally through the channels of elimination. Life Gold helps the body remove potentially harmful waste products by ensuring that the vital systems of detoxification are working well, including the liver, kidneys, bowel, lungs, and skin. Our herbal formula helps maintain natural wellness in the lymphatic system, a vital part of the immune system. Life Gold can assist in antioxidant function throughout the body and may reduce damage from free radicals - the cell-damaging molecules that accelerate immunocompromised issues. Holistic treatments will not cure your dog's tragic disease, but they can support the body to naturally fight as hard as it can.
Even if your pet is healthy, Life Gold can be used once or twice a year to ensure that the body's detoxification systems are working optimally and to help reduce oxidative stress. This provides a foundation for long-term health.
