One of my ferrets currently has lymphoma and is in remission. I asked my vet if she would recommend natural remedies I could use in conjunction with the daily prednisone treatment of 1.5 ml and the asparaginase treatment she is getting. She recommended this to me for my ferret:
DHA: Increase thse levels increase N-3 fatty acids – note that the best source of this is seaweed (versus fish – also avoid risk of contaminants and heavy metals that can occur with the fish source); overall get better response in treatment with chemotherapy – decreases insulin levels and lactate levels. Best source and reasonably priced and available OTC is Expecta. Can get from Target or Walmart. It comes in 200 mg capsules – dosage is 200 mg for small sized dog; 400 mg for medium sized dog; 600 mg for large sized dog.
See www.CVSangelCare.com for handouts on chemotherapy, nutrition, and pet loss, etc.
I hope this will help those of you out there with ferrets who have lymphoma!
