    Default Maggie's new food supplement

    The mods, the EBN veterans and friends on facebook already know this ... but for the rest of you here is our news. Maggie was diagnosed with cancer 12 days ago. Chemo was an option but Lymphoma and chemo only give us an extra few months with her. During those months she would be uncomfortable and possibly in pain. So we opted for option 2 which is prednisone. We may have out sweet girl anywhere from 2 - 6 months more.

    I know we can't cure this, but I have researched all the foods that help to fight the growth of cancer cells and also help to boost the immune system. Anything that will keep our baby with us just a little longer ... even if that is only a few more days.

    The bonus is that this little food supplement that we have been adding to her kibble is in fact Bulldog CRACK ..... If I could turn back time then I would have been feeding this to her with her Fromm a long time ago.

    These are the ingredients:-

    Kidney beans - high protein to slow down the growth of cancer cells
    Raw spinach and shredded Carrot - boost the immune system and to slow tumour growth
    Salmon and organic flaxseed oil - both restrict the production of inflammatory compounds that can aid the growth of cancer cells.

    Her treats now are all frozen broccoli, carrots and cauliflower which all detoxify and can block tumour growth.


    And as promised to @cali-jenn ... here is proof that not only is it healthy but it is also highly addictive!!!

    Yes , I have read that before, those are the things that I'll be feeding my pack in my home made recipe . Our transition diet starts Thursday. In my head, you are making the right decision. Good Mama

    Sounds like a good diet, and hope it buys her some time. I just loved the video of sweet Maggie, she sure liked that food.

    First let me say, I am so sorry for that diagnosis

    I've been singing the praises of vegetables for months! Can I offer a suggestion or 2?

    To get the most from her veggies, you might want to steam them before freezing. Boiling them pulls the vitamins and healing properties out of them but steaming them breaks down the cellulose layer thus making it more digestible/beneficial. Eating them raw they still have that layer and a dogs stomach's isn't equipped to break it down. All the goodness you worked so hard to get into them will come out the other end still in tact.

    Think about adding fresh parsley, mint and/or dill to her diet. All of these have phenomenal cancer fighting properties.

    I have spent literally every spare minute of the past 4 months buried in books, blogs and articles about natural cures, foods & supplements for canine diseases. Not to mention the advice given to me by the army of doctors & nutritionists whose kids I'm sending to college. If there is anything that I can do please let me know.

    I'll be praying for her

    For me, her name was Abby

    Karen, I so love this video!!! She is so beautiful and obviously happy. To see her being so well taken care of truly brings a smile to my face. You r doing for her what most never think to do. That is dedication. Hugs!!! We all love you and Maggie so much.

    On a side not I wish you could have talked more (although I think Maggie was saying "mum, shut up and let me eat my crack") your accent is beautiful. I know you are from across the pond but forget mostly. Lol love it and love you!

    OMG her face is so darn adorable. I just giggled at the first sight of her and her tongue sticking out. She is such a sweet heart and has the best mom ever.

    Always with me

    Maggie! Loved that she tried to eat her food even when it was pretty much out of her reach!

    That diet sounds wonderful! Full of healthy things to keep Maggie as happy and healthy as long as possible. I know cruciferious veggies are well-known for their cancer-fighting properties. We had a lab on campus working on broccoli sprouts and their ability to slow cancerous growths.
