Osteosarcoma (or bone cancers) are beginning to appear in horses following the increasing trend in dogs, where this cancer is now prolific. In dogs, bone cancers appear to result from a serious distortion in feeding patterns and a lack of the correct balance of minerals for healthy bone growth and maintenance.
It is a little harder to see the cause of bone cancers in horses but it will be tied up in the lack of highly mineralised fibrous feeds found in a natural variety of grasses and an imbalance of other minerals and trace elements esential to healthy bone growth.
The Osteosarcoma Cancer Support formulation is given with the Tendon and Bone Healing program and contains the following herbal tonics; Bladderack, Hawthorne, Elecampane, Wormwood, Violet Leaves, Yarrow, Equisetum, Buchu, and Thuja along with a variety of Bach Flower Remedies.
This powerful herbal program, coupled with rehabilitative exercise programs and free-range grazing on healthy, natural feed or the provision of healthy meadow hay, will provide the horse's immune system with the boost needed to help them fight this nasty cancer.
A 60 drop dose of this mix is given diluted and mixed with 60 drops of Maritime Pine Extract. This is all mixed into the Tendon and Bone Repair supplement and given twice daily.
Shake well. Dose: 60 drops x 2 a day – a 15 week initial course is advised. 200mls = 5 weeks supply. If symptoms persist contact McDowells Herbal for further advice. Store in a cool dark place less than 30 degrees. Take care when opening to avoid spillage.
