Hemangiosarcoma In Dogs: Holistic Supplements
What is Hemangiosarcoma?
Hemangiosarcoma is an aggressive, malignant cancer of the blood vessels. It is most commonly found in the spleen, liver and heart and the prognosis is determined by the location of the disease. The cancer results in the production of abnormal blood vessels that can be weak and prone to leaking. As the cancer progresses, the cancerous vessels can rupture and results in blood loss. As the spleen is the organ most commonly affected by this type of cancer, rupture can lead to blood loss into the abdomen. This is an emergency situation and can result in weakness and collapse. Many pets with hemangiosarcoma often require a splenectomy.
Symptoms of Hemangiosarcoma In Dogs
- Lumps or swelling in the abdomen
- Pale mucous membranes (mouth and eyes)
- Rapid or labored breathing
- Red or black growth on the skin

Veterinarians may prescribe chemotherapy for dogs with hemangiosarcoma. In general, dogs handle chemotherapy much better than people do. There are several ways that chemotherapy can be administered to dogs: through an IV, as a pill, or injected directly into the tumor (chemoembolization). A recent study* shows that the chemotherapy drug Sorafenib shows antitumor activity in canine hemangiosarcoma cells.

Diet for Dogs With Hemangiosarcoma
Pets with cancer need a special cancer diet that supports a healthy immune system and reduces inflammation. Ask Ariel Pet Nutritionist offered holistic consultations in conjunction with veterinarians at VCA hospitals and a leading Southern California veterinary oncology clinic for over 10 years. Her diet and supplement protocol for dogs and cats with cancer has been recommended by veterinarians nationwide and can be used along with conventional treatments recommended by your veterinarian or veterinary oncologist. Many pet owners might not realize that many foods (even the highest quality, grain-free, premium diets) are weakening the immune system. Dry food, for example, is made with starchy carbohydrates that convert to sugar....which studies show helps the cancer grow. It can be upsetting to realize that many pet foods contain ingredients that are worsening your pet's condition, but there is hope, as once the offending foods are eliminated, most pets show considerable improvement. When ordering supplements, please be sure to include the food and treats you are feeding your pet along with any health issues directly on the order form at checkout. We will include FREE diet tips for pets with cancer on the packing slip that comes with your order.
