Did Wheatgrass Help Save My Dog When Cancer Hit ?

This morning, as I was preparing breakfast for the dogs, I added the usual concoction of a mixture, of a glass of water, and a desert spoonfull of wheat grass powder. I mix it well then pour the mixture on to the food for each dog. One glass each. I haven't finished though,I then do one each for Paul and myself.

I am reminded to write about this after reading who has just written about how she recommends the wheat grass.

Last year I noticed a small lump on my dogs testicle, then I saw a few blood spots. After a speedy visit my worst fears were confirmed. It was cancer. They wanted to keep him in and operate the same day,next morning actually.

I was told that it was malignant, and they weren't hopeful, I was creased!

I had waited for this special dog for a long ,long time.

Paul and I were sick,our other dogs helped to keep us busy.

We went in the afternoon to see how he was, and were amazed, when they said he would be okay to come home in a couple of hours,he was very groggy, still.

The Vet assured us he was fine, and they couldn't give any guarantees, but, they hoped they had caught it in time, and removed the cancer.

My Daughter visited that evening and she was excited to tell us the news about a very old man,she had seen and read about on yahoo.

He was dying of cancer,his Doctor had told him he only had a short time left!

The old man,who was obviously a very determined person,searched and searched the internet . He came up with 'organic wheat grass powder'.

He took more than the recommended measure and after a while he returned to the Doctor who was said to be amazed at the mans recovery.

Now, what the facts are, I do not know! I do think that we have to try anything to fight against illness, and then we have some hope...

Hope is strong!!A year has gone by, and my Dog is in great health, without any sign of any lump,thank goodness,I hope he remains that way.

I believe that wheat grass powder is important for the immune system.

Hard to say what role wheat grass played, but you have a healthy dog to share your lives with. That's wonderful.

I had read an Ad in the Readers' Digest just yesterday and read a bit of the goodness of Wheat grass powder. I am planning on ordering for it and your post has more than convinced me that it will be a miracle powder for wellness. Nice post.

I doubt very much the wheat grass would have helped without immediate surgery, but I know we will try anything when cancer strikes.

I will accept any happiness on a daily basis,many thanks for your kindness.

I just ordered for a bottle online.

I understand what you are saying ,but my write was getting too long, and I ommited much important stuff. Briefly The commercial dog foods are full of (politeness)junk from leather parts to cancerous parts.
I am working on starting from the opp. with the new diet of pure food and additiond of vitamins and wheat grass.

I know what you mean, sometimes things have to be cut out or the posts get too long to read. I´m glad your dog is healthy now.

I am very glad your dog is healthy, another method for cancer I have read about is flax seed oil and cottage cheese. Dont know if its true but I drink smoothies and add those

I am glad to hear your dog is a survivor and that remaining cancer free. I have not heard the benefits of wheat grass specifically on cancer, but it would not surprise me.

So glad it turned out well for your dog and family.

Wheatgrass isn't likely to be the cure-all for everyone (or every dog) but in some circumstances perhaps it is!

WordChazer wrote on March 7, 2015, 1:10 PM

Not one I'd come across yet. Will have to investigate. I swear by garlic and cranberries for keeping me well.

maxeen wrote on March 7, 2015, 4:11 PM

Thanks! Yes ,I agree. I use other vits. Do you make your own smoothies?

maxeen wrote on March 7, 2015, 4:15 PM

Thanks! He is doing brilliant . I have read lots of accounts of the benefits of the wheatgrass,we can only hope it is as good as it seems over the long period,I was talking to the vet about it and she was in favour of it..

maxeen wrote on March 7, 2015, 4:17 PM

Thanks! We were on a high for ages, now we are thinking we are on the right track to keep the dogs all healthy..

maxeen wrote on March 7, 2015, 4:28 PM

I consider it a hope in the form of a healthy diet which does away with free-radicals and helps in some way..

maxeen wrote on March 7, 2015, 4:29 PM

I am deffo. with you on those also!!

Soonerdad3 wrote on March 7, 2015, 4:32 PM

That is great to hear that your vet is all for it.

wolfgirl569 wrote on March 7, 2015, 10:38 PM

Yes I mostly use frozen strawberries this tie of year ans sometimes add in some banana also

maxeen wrote on March 8, 2015, 7:56 AM

Cranberries for us but dodgy for all pets .

It may help--there are many medicines that are based on natural ingredients like plants. I'm glad to hear he's doing well!

maxeen wrote on March 10, 2015, 9:09 AM

Nice to hear you say so! I agree ! Many good and natural foods ,for us and our pets..

The thing is, if it worked, it worked. And if it wasn't the wheat grass, so what?

maxeen wrote on March 13, 2015, 9:35 AM

The wheat grass is great for the immune system,we take it ourselves and so far.....we feel good.

This shows that dogs and humans need more greens too. Perhaps you can get your dogs to eat spinach!

maxeen wrote on March 13, 2015, 11:02 AM

Yes ! They should have lots of greens ,mine do have a variety of greens, and they love raw carrots.. I put spinach and other greens in their dinner.

trufflehunter wrote on March 13, 2015, 12:48 PM

What a wonderful tale. More people are turning to organic treatment and I think vets are more open to it for animals too. I'm happy for you and your pooch!

maxeen wrote on March 13, 2015, 5:10 PM

Hello ,yes,the vet was very interested in the wheat grass story,she said she was going to look for info. about it..thanks for your good wishes..much appreciated.

arthurchappell wrote on March 14, 2015, 4:28 PM

so glad your dog came through ok for you - must have been very distressing when you thought he wouldn't

maxeen wrote on March 14, 2015, 4:42 PM

Yes! very! Thank goodness, he is in fine fettle now!

I have read reports about the benefits of wheat grass. I used to drink wheat grass powder myself and I did feel an over-all improvement in my health.
