    Default Bulldog Diagnosed with Cancer Recently :(

    Good Afternoon Everyone:

    I joined the site to get any information from someone that has or is going through the same thing that my family and I are currently going through. Maybe this can also help others as well. I'm very familair with English Bulldogs and have always had one my entire adult life. Unfortunately my boy Diesel who is 6 1/2 has recenlty been dignosed with Osteochondroma in his left maxillary bone under zygomatic arch. I had the tumor removed 3 weeks ago from a top notch surgeon in Southern California. He has been doing really good so far so good. We met with our pathologist a few days ago and he recommended chemo for Diesel. Because of the location radiation will only cause further problems and it would not be worth it to put him through 20 rounds. He is currenlty on Cee- Nu and Feldene 5mg and 10mg to start with. So far he has not had any side effects except today he is constipated. I plan to give him some pumpkin with his dinner tonight to see if that helps. The doctor's said at some point the tumor will grow back and he will need the sugery again to remove it. There is no way to get all of the tumor out sad to say. This is a not an agressive cancer and it can't spread but it is not going away. They say about a year is conservative to say but it's a rough guess. We are just hoping the chemo helps and Diesel won't have any side effects that will cause him to not have a normal life going forward. I'm doing everything that I can for him. We see the pathologist again in 30 days. Does anyone here have any information regarding food to feed a Bulldog with cancer or has anyone here gone through this kind of sitation? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    If I was going through what you and others are and might lose my dog, yes follow vets advice for sure but this is "me" I would go a step further and also add "frankincense" oil. Yes some will say WTH is she on about but oils have been used over 3000 years. There is more and more positive studies on Frankincense oil and killing cancer. It is also for pets. Again this is "my opinion. Im not saying it's guarantee but what is today?
