Dogs need all our love and affection when they are sick. After all, we have developed an attachment to them as they have been with us. Learning that your dog has cancer is a harrowing experience. I never thought I would see the day that my lovely Meatball, my affectionate poodle who has been my source of joy for six years has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. Our veterinarian told us that poodles are prone to this medical condition. After the diagnosis, I was distraught because I fear the fact that I will lose Meatball. Our veterinarian recommended that we undergo surgery after which we go through radiation and chemotherapy. Since I want my Meatball to get the best care available, I was with her every step of the way.
After the treatment, I knew that things will never be back to normal again. The veterinarian told me that I should do what I can to nurse Meatball back to health. I modified her diet based on the recommendations of an animal nutritionist and my veterinarian recommended that I should augment the nutrients that Meatball get from her food with Bixbi Organic Pet Superfood Premium Supplement for Cats and Dogs.
I am not one to try new things but since I want only the best for my Meatball, I did my research before I bought the product. Bixbi Superfood IMMUNITY is packed with potent antioxidants that safeguard against free radicals and immune system imbalance. Free radicals are destructive especially for aging pets. They cause the loss of cellular flexibility and strength of joints and cartilage. It also causes inflammation, gastrointestinal and liver disorders. Chemotherapy can do a lot to kill the bad cancer cells but it also weakens the body’s immune system. And getting a good source of supplement to boost a dog’s immunity could go a long way. BixBi Superfood is also packed with nutrients that protect the body from the damaging effects of stress, infection, pollution and aging. This includes L-Ergothioneine, selenium and vitamins C and E.
It is also important that Meatball gets help in fighting cancer. The IMMUNITY Superfood does a great job at this as it also contains polysaccharides from organic mushrooms which is known for improving natural killer and T-helper cell activity and boosting the body’s immune system. With Meatball sick, I want to give her only natural foods. I am happy that IMMUNITY Superfood is 100 percent organic. For its ingredients, it contains organic turkey tail and laboratory grown mushrooms. It has organic agaricus blazei, reishi, shitake, maitake, cordyceps, king trumpet and lion’s mane. I do not know if there is ever a product in the market that has this much mushrooms in one product alone. I think it is pretty awesome. IMMUNITY Superfood also has beta-glucans. It helps regulating the immune system too. It triggers a cascade of events that promote immune cell activation. It also stimulates macrophages and lymphocytes to destroy target cells by enhancing the overall activity of natural killer T and B cells. It is this anti-inflammatory function of beta glucans that makes it a perfect supplement as an adjunct therapy for cancer.
It is important that before you start giving your pets supplements, you have to check with your veterinarian or an animal nutritionist to make sure that your pet is getting the right amount of nutrients to nourish its body back to shape. I mix IMMUNITY Superfood on Meatball’s food. I give her double dose as prescribed by her vet, just ½ teaspoon per 25 pounds.
The first thing that I noticed about Meatball is that she is not as lethargic as she was before. I can see her condition improving and she is not getting any side effects from the chemo treatment. I guess the IMMUNITY Superfood is doing its job fortifying her immune system. I can only be thankful that I tried IMMUNITY. It worked for me and Meatball and I will not hesitate to recommend it to people who love their dogs and want them to get the best care possible.
