All about Lily.
I love my dog!!!! <3 <3 <3 I found a tumor that was bigger then a quarter in her right shoulder at age 8. It was causing her to limp after 5 minutes of walking. If I touched it with the lightest of pressure she would yelp as if I was killing her. I read up on dog nutrition and how to heal cancer in a dog through diet, by reading books and online. I immediately threw away her dry dog food and started the barf method of feeding. after about 3 months of that I read somewhere about the prey model of feeding and stopped feeding all veggies. S
Sometimes if my dog has an upset stomach she will eat wheatgrass however. She eats raw organic chicken, backs usually. Sometimes she gets a half of a chicken or other cuts, whatever is affordable, and once a week I add raw organic chicken livers. I have found that she is allergic to beef so I just stick to chicken. To accelerate healing, when I first started the diet I would feed her for 4 days and fast her for one, she was over weight at this time. After 6 months or so I changed the schedule to feeding her for 5 days then fasting her for one day. Six months later I started feeding her for 6 days and fasting her for one day which is where we've been ever since. She hasn't limped since after the first year of raw.
She has more energy now then she did when she was 8 years old. Her caluces on her elbows are much smaller now with no problems, they were four times the size and cracking and bleeding before the diet change. She had gotten bit twice on her side by a spider when she was 5 and the wounds reappeared and rehealed during the first year of raw. The tumor almost completely disappeared after a year of raw, however she eats an occasional kibble or 10 off the floor every once in awhile when I take her to friends houses or to my parents house, who feed their dogs kibble, so the tumor has gotten a little bigger from the almost nonexistent pea size it was after the first year of raw when she had no access to kibble ever.
I have had the tumor checked at the vet, they reported no cancer cells and it stays between the size of a nickel and a dime. I can touch it and she doesn't make a sound. She at age 13 runs circles around other dogs half her age who eat dry dog food. Her teeth are clean and she does not have the "Dog Smell," or bad breath that her kibble eating friends emit. Her attitude has changed for the better since the diet change, she is way more chill, she listens and pays attention better, and she is less nervous and neurotic in previously stressful situations.
She is on the lean side and people who just don't get it tell me all the time I am killing my dog or that I need to feed her cooked food because they are used to seeing overweight dogs. Lots of people approach me asking me how old my puppy is and their jaw drops when I tell them her age. The most common response I get is, "She doesn't look older then 3 or 4." I agree and look forward to many more loving years with her by my side. <3

Disclaimer: I'm not a medical professional and the advices I provide are based on 18 years of private research and personal experience with raw feeding and different natural remedies for keeping dogs cancer free. I always recommend seeing a professional veterinarian (preferable a holistic) if you suspect any health issues with your pet.
I lost a dog to cancer and I was determined to never let that happen again, which is why I share this information. Too many pets die from cancer and I know it can be prevented in most cases and many lives can be saved.
All I want in return is your story. I'm building an archive of success stories that will hopefully show other pet owners that there is a natural approach to beating and preventing cancer.
If you decide to follow what I suggest, you do this entirely at your own risk.
Over the last 18 years, I have helped pet owners make the switch to raw food and I’ve helped owners that have pets with cancer to beat the disease using a natural method.
I have built up a reputation and the sheer number of owners that need help has become overwhelming. I'm doing this alone and I'm spending every free minute of my free time helping pets so they can live long, healthy lives; that's my life mission.
Sadly, I have to limit the ones I help. It breaks my heart to do so because I know what a horrible feeling it is to have a pet with cancer – I have been there. I am only able to help the ones that take part in my research project. My research and the documentation of the benefits of raw feeding, plus the many stories about how alternative natural cancer treatments and prevention

I don't like doing this but my love and passion for helping pets are too strong to not ask. I need your help to keep these three one-of-a-kind and very important projects going. Also several have told me: "If you don't ask and share nobody will know. There are many out there that love pets that will support you in your mission to make our pets live longer and reduce the risk of cancer"
Every day I get several requests from devastated pet owners that need help with their beloved dogs suffering from cancer. Unfortunately, I can't help everyone. I just do not have time. Between work, family and taking care of my pets there is not enough time to help them all. This is very unfortunate and extremely upsetting to me. I lost a dog to cancer and I will never forget the emotional suffering and pain involved in watching my dearest friend losing that battle. I understand what you all are going through and in pains me not being able to help more dogs.
With donations, I can take on less work and dedicate more time to my projects that will eventually help millions of pets. I want to share my findings for cancer prevention and natural cures so more pet owners will see that there are other options. The current statistic of close to 70% of dogs getting cancer is unacceptable to me. I'm on a mission to reduce this dramatically.
For 20 years I financed this myself and I have plain and simple run out of funds. I had to take on more work and spend less time on what I have dedicated my life to do: Help pets live longer healthier lives.
If you have any suggestion or ideas on how to raise funds for this project please let me know.
Please help support these much-needed one-of-a-kind research projects by donating to my nonprofit organization:

I thank you in advance. I'm unable to continue these important projects and help animals with cancer if it was not for your generous support.
