Best Food And Cancer Prevention?
My Baby Scrappy
Hi, my Maine Coon is 11 years old and had a tumor removed from his side that was caused by his shots. He made it through the surgery and day after fine.
On the next day he went into heart failure. We rushed him to a 24/7 clinic and with much treatment, he made it home...I understand his cancer is an aggressive cancer and may come back.
He cannot go through any more surgeries because of his heart. He has an enlarged heart, and did have fluid around it and in his lungs. They are clear now.
He has been on heart meds and lasix for 3 months and is acting like he is in his second childhood...He has tamed many feral kittens so they could find homes. He is the most active cat out of 10 that we couldn't find homes for.
He has had one eye since birth, had it rebuilt and now had to go through this...The other cats follow him around just to be near him...
He loves to play in water so we got him a drinking fountain...He does all kinds of funny tricks and we love him dearly...I give him saffron to eat, warm castol oil compresses,(everyday) 1/4 of a baby aspirin every 3 1/2 days and lots of hugs and kisses...
I would like anymore suggestions on cancer prevention, and the best food to feed him. He doesn't like raw meat at all...The vet said he was in the top 2% to make it through something like this...The Animal Clinic only gave him 6 days to 6 months to live...
He is doing wonderful, and we would like to keep him that way as long as possible. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, what a special boy! It seems he really is here for a reason. Helping tame feral kittens, he is a living angel!
I'm sorry to hear of all his troubles. But he knows how much he is loved and cared for, that's for sure.
As for your question regarding food for cancer prevention, this is something I've not yet encountered or researched. I would think that giving him a very high-quality cat food made from top ingredients would be important.
You might want to try having him eat a variety of ingredients, too, by purchasing more than one brand. Canned food and a variety of "real" human food would be good to.
It seems like you are already pampering him very well! I would recommend asking your vet if there is a particular ingredient or supplement that would help with cancer prevention.
There are two products I know of that may interest you: Natural Wonder Pets makes a supplement in liquid form called Primalix C-Care Herbal Extract Functional Food Drops
you might want to check out.
Also, there is an ebook written by a vet all about natural, holistic pet care including cancer. You can Click Here
to look at it.
If there are other owners who know if there is a best food for cancer prevention, I hope they will leave comments, too!
And my thoughts are with you and Scrappy. I'm glad he is feeling so well right now!
All The Best,
