My dog was diagnosed with early stages of lymphnoid cancer. He is 11 years old and in perfect health otherwise. He has had his 1st chemo Friday.
I have been researching what is the best vitamin, food to give him to help promote the success rate of remission, keep the cancer cells from reforming and keep his vital organs from shutting down during the chemo. Are there any suggestions for increasing the success rate for his recovery and also stop this cancer from reoccurring?

At 1 year and 2 months my West Highland Terrier was diagnosed with Addison's disease. He's taking 1/2mg of prednisone every day and gets Percoten V shots every 28 days. My vet says that there are really no significant side effects of to these drugs. I guess my question is: My dog is fairly young and he's going to be having treatment all his life. Is there a chance that the medications will eventually harm him, his kidneys, for example? Are there alternative treatments of Addison's that do not require any of these drugs?
