    Here are some important links: http://www.i-love-dogs.com/forums/do...uliflower.html

    Here's a helpful link too: http://www.k9medicinals.com/dog-cancer-diet

    Update:
    There are rumors that broccoli can be toxic to dogs. This is somewhat true but is only dangerous in large amounts. Here's a quote from an online source;

    BROCCOLI: There has been a bit of confusion where broccoli is concerned. Broccoli is very good for dogs, however, if the daily intake exceeds more than 10% of the animals diet – problems can occur. The toxic substance is isothiocyanate and can cause gastrointestinal irritation.
    NOTE: Broccoli toxicity was first noted in dairy cattle raised in California. When there was an over abundant broccoli crop, it was fed to the cattle. Problems may have occurred because cattle have rumens and digest things much more thoroughly, therefore taking in more of the toxic substance.

It may give the pup some gas, and you can monitor for diarrhea, but there isn't much else out there as powerful against tumors, as broccoli. At least in the natural realm. Simply google broccoli tumors and you'll see the myriads of data supporting this. I know people give bullies broccoli on a regular basis anyways (despite the farts!), so I know its safe for them. Hope this helps.

    Wow...this is really interesting Kevin. I would give it a try...it cannot hurt! Prayers for your sweet Abby...please keep us updated.

    Hi, I am so sorry that you are going through this with Abby. My Jack Russell Oreo was 12 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer, and my vet gave us this advice. You can do all kinds of tests and treatments for cancer, but the outcome will be the same. Treatment can prolong their life, but can also cause many side effects. She told me dogs and people can live with cancer without treatment, it's a decision you have to make based on her health and how she feels, she told me it comes down to her quality of life, if she she isn't in any pain, and she's eating and drinking normal, then she could live a normal life and then when the time comes when she no longer is having a quality life, or is suffering then you make the decision of what's best for her, and when it is time to put her down and end her suffering. Fortunately for us Oreo lived another two years until 14 years old, and she passed away 3 years ago, but we didn't have to make that decision, she passed away in her sleep and so we didn't have to put her down.

    Whatever decision you decide on with your vet, will be done with what's best for Abby, and with love. You will do whatever you can to keep her healthy, and pain free and when the time comes you will make the right decision for her. I understand and know how sad you feel and how heart wrenching this is, and I hope and wish for you to get some more quality time with your baby Abby. Sending love, hugs and prayers for you, and your family, and Abby. Take care Hun and please keep us updated on Abby.

    I'm so very sorry to hear Abby. I have no experience with this but I know we were faced with certain decisions for Ace as he got older and was 10 yo. We decided to let things run their course rather than put him through any more treatments and surgery. It was the best thing we did for him. I wish I could offer some other kind of advice to help.

    I am so sorry to hear this you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Cancer in dogs sucks as I just lost my Ridgeback Sasha to it last week. @Vikinggirl gave some great words of wisdom and I know you will make the best decision for your baby when the time is right.
