The canine Parvo virus causes inflammation of the stomach and intestine in dogs. The disease can be mild to severe depending on the strain of Parvovirus infecting the dog,

A Lymphoma Protocol

A Lymphoma Protocol

This is not a recommendation or prescription.
This may or may not apply to someone’s pet. Your veterinarian’s advice is superior to this information. The following is offered as a piece of information about how a case is being treated successfully for lymphoma, for under $300/month and without observable or experienced side effect.

Patient ‘Delilah’ passed the 5 month mark without side-effect. Then she came out of remission and was euthanized. This isn’t a cure. However, her survival was several MONTHS longer than with Prednisone alone. Colchicine is an rna-microtubule-antagonist and is $70 a month for a large dog. This is less than a tenth of the cost of chemotherapy with corporate Veterinary practices.

“Lymphoma and lymphosarcoma are invariably terminal for dogs. However, various kinds of “chemotherapy“ can extend life sometimes more than a year. But even after all of that, they will perish from lymphoma. Sometimes, sensationally, and catastrophically. That, all by itself can make an owner regret having done chemotherapy not to mention the expense over time.
Still, there are ways to combat lymphoma using prednisone.
Prednisone typically gets a remission of anywhere from a month to up to six months by itself.

The side effects of prednisone are appetite increase and increased thirst.

The stomach must be protected from the effects of the steroid so that the dog may remain comfortable. This is as simple as giving Prilosec or Famotidine. Or both.

It turns out, that by adding other medications you can augment to the performance of prednisone and extend that time.
In veterinary medicine some of the better protocols are based on things like L asperaginase and Cytoxan cyclophosphamide, which are outrageously expensive at this point and do have some side effects and require a degree of monitoring. And this is where I diverge from main stream veterinary medicine.

Dimethyl sulfoxide has been looked at over the years as a possible aid for cancer. Science has been aware for sometime that DMSO seems to target cancer cells. That is unexplained. But after administration, the DMSO ends up in highest concentrations in the vicinity of cancer cells. Now they are tagging DMSO with chemotherapeutic‘s then, the DMSO takes the chemotherapy directly to the tumor. OK. I filed that away.
For the sake of completeness I would add that DMSO can be administered intravenously, subcutaneously if extremely diluted, topically, and there are research studies showing it can be taken orally and may make a difference that way. What we have found the best, is administering it subcutaneously, highly diluted.

The DMSO can be administered at home, by an industrious owner, or we can do it. It is done every 7 to 10 days. Not for nothing, we tend to synchronize the DMSO infusion within two hours of the next drug.

There is an old drug that has been around for quite some time that performs functions very similar to chemotherapy, only, at a fraction of the price. It’s called colchicine.

We normally use that for Shar-Pei hocks. They get an inflammatory condition in their hocks that can be managed with colchicine. I am taking advantage of the fact that it interferes with messenger RNA microtubule or formation to slow down or hold back the development of resistance to prednisone by the lymphoma. There are no physical side effects to the pet by taking colchicine. It is not a nauseating drug and it is comparatively very safe.

Linus Pauling wrote a lot about vitamin C, ascorbic acid, and its impact on cancers. He believed that certain kinds of cancer could actually be “cured“ by vitamin C therapy. Whether that is true or not we don’t care, we are giving large amounts of vitamin C (up to 2 g twice a day), because it is inexpensive and free of side effects. Maybe it does fight cancer?

So that’s what we’re doing:

1. Vitamin C at very high dose. Orally.
2. DMSO as a subcutaneous infusion.
3. Colchecine once a day.
4. Prednisone at 1/2 mg per pound twice a day for a week and then 1/2 mg per pound per day long term.
5. Antibiotics (almost any) to prevent infection while the pet is immuno suppressed.
6. Medicine to bind or decrease stomach acid while on prednisone.

Because that is the treatment we are using I do not put the owners to the expense of repeated bloodwork and monitoring for signs of cancer and other systems. The work up prior to this is minimal, because it is a “last resort” protocol.

It carries a very low expense, compared to western corporate veterinary medicine chemotherapy and diagnostics.

Like all other chemotherapies for this cancer, it is inevitably destined for failure, the question is:  When?”

This is The LCD Screen Scope
We Did The Tutorial With. I did a twenty page tutorial (Here's the tutorial) with video, audio, images and even little parasite movies to show you how to use a microscope. 

This Filter is Good For BIG Dirty Tanks
I've been wrestling with water quality with the turtles. The sponges work GREAT, but in THOSE turtle systems where they eat MICE the poops are bulky. This filter can handle it. In "Tortu's" tank, it's got an 800 gph pump and it rocks. 

PraziPro for Flukes
They nailed it. Figured out the solubility and worked out the dosing. It works. 

Buy Some Good Koi?
No, this isn't really for the 'high end' collector y'all. But for someone who isn't near a decent garden center, here are "good-to-quite-good" Koi you will like at a very good price. I know these guys personally.

Best Food, Ever
It's made for (and I discovered it for) my Blood Parrots but the small size, intense color enhancers and excellent formulation make it superb young-Koi food. Oh, and it's AMAZING on color-cichlids like Flowerhorn and Blood Parrots. 

Pro Air 60 Aerator is a VERY high output air pump pushing my whole fish room (17+ drops), and I have one at home driving everything there, and I have one as a back up. 

Formalin Malachite (Not dilute)
There are formalin malachite preparations at 10%, 22% and 37%. There's economy in the concentrates. Hard to get Prime shipping because air transport is curtailed. This is a good value on 32 ounces. 

Topical For Koi and Pond Fish Ulcers
I like 7% tincture of iodine because it stains but it's hard to hurt anything with it. Used with a WOVEN gauze, this works well to clean and disinfect a wound. Only use ONCE. Do not 'repeatedly' scrub wounds. 

Confectioner's Glaze 
Is the way to bind a medication to fish food. Gone are the days of paste food and oil. The write up is done, it's RIGHT HERE.

Koi Health & Disease
Hopefully this link takes you to the newest edition by PRIME to get it to your house the fastest. 

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?

CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.

Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy. 

LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths. 

Antimicrobial
If you're making medicated feed for a larger group of fish, this will come in handy. Dosing is available in the site. 

For me, filtration-of-choice
For aquariums, even small Koi holding facilities or small ponds. These sponge filters are cheap, easy to clean, and they clear hazes very well when used with some Accuclear or similar.

Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
Make great hospital or quarantine facilities. They SHOULD cost about $200-300 depending on size, but this, lower quality unit (while panned in some reviews) may be good. Don't overfill and make sure it's propped up.

1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
I have several of these ALLIED PRECISION stainless ones that are a couple years old. Working still. 

Potassium Permanganate 
500 grams could be a lifetime supply but it's 50% more than the 100g cost wise, for 500% more amount. Dosing is in the site and the book.

What Does Ajax Eat?
I looked for something well formulated, with meat as the first ingredient. Something UNDER $2/lb and something they could deliver for free. And this was it. He looks and feels great on it.
