My dog (casanova) has been suffering for the past month and we are waiting on a test to see if he has a fungal infections or possibly nasal cancer. Last night I had to run him to the emergency clinic as he started acting very strange and began twitching plus breathing heavy. The vet said his breathing is fine, but the twitching probably does lead them to believe it could be a fungal infection that is beginning to spread to his brain. Has anyone dealt with this?

I should have test results back today but from what I understand it is extremely expensive to treat and only effective if the dog takes to the treatment, but having trouble finding information on what the success rate is of dogs accepting the treatment, any ideas?

This may be too late for your dog but if it isn't. I also have a dog with either a growth in the nose or infection and there is no cure. she was breathing so badly I very nearly had her put down last week.
a month ago I took her to a homeopathic vet who prescribed various remedies. Each one induced a nose bleed.
I sent away for Triherba black tonic which is bloodroot based and so far we are having success with this.

Default Feebee's Nasal growth

thanks for the support. My dog, a german shepherd, feebee, is 10 years old and very much my friend so I'm trying all I can to keep her going. she looks really good and can't quite believe has only a short time to live.
Her allopathic vet has her on a low steroid dose which is keeping the growth back but cannot get rid of it.
I am trying black tonic and a fox liniment and she is now on fresh meat and organic veg diet.
she is in her seventh extra week and has so many people routing for her that I now have posted her progress on my space under my name anne glover. My friends, their friends and their friends' friends are asking and sending love.I have had professional people phoning me late at night with cures and the whole thing has given me so much heart

Have they mentioned doing an MRI? They can be very expensive but s/b able to pinpoint the problem (have heard some vets give very sizable discounts - 50/60% - if you pay cash). ANyway am probably putting the cart before the horse, hoping she responds to the treatment, good luck to you both.

A great christmas message - Fee Bee has responded to the alternative treatment and the abnormal tissue has separated and is being expelled out of her nostril. the swelling on her nose has also erupted into an abscess of sorts and the tissue is being released. It's unpleasant, smelly, messy but she now has chance of full recovery.
Thanks to all who have cared.
this whole episode should give heart to anyone who has cancer. Try the tri-herba or any other bloodroot substance. I have taken photos of the process. These are not pleasant but I'm happy to share with anyone who wants to see them.

Default Nasal Cancer in my 13 y/o Golden

Hi Anne,

We are dealing with nasal cancer in our senior Golden (just received diagnosis). I was just wondering how Triherba Black Tonic works. Do you add it to their food? I am assuming this tonic is in liquid form.

Thanks for any help you can give. I would rather try to go the natural/holistic route if I can. I'm not too sure I want to put my boy through the standard/routine types of treatments, since he deals now with moderate to advanced arthritis in his hind quarters and his age (he turned 13 in January of this year).

Again, thank you Anne. Your FeeBee is a beautiful dog!

If there is a fungal infection present, it's critical to do a culture to identify the genus and species. Not all fungi can be treated by the same antifungal agent and there are several now available.

Hoping you get good news.

Default Fungal Infection, bacterial infection or cancer

We brought our beloved lab mix "Jack" to the vet today after a month of treating, what was believed to be, a tooth problem. Over the weekend his head developed an egg size lump, which precipitated the vet visit. After an incision was made they said that the bone in his nasal passage was eaten through. The vet believed this to be cancer. They are sending off a biopsy to confirm. My niece, who is a veterinarian student said that fungal infections can eat through bone as well. Has anyone out there had this problem. We are absolutely destroyed at this point. He is still active, eats well but shows signs of pain at times. Please help!

I did go through months of nasal problems and evaluations and money with the same concerns and pray it is neither but for the OP - - - And I am really sorry for what you are going through and others have gone through with this - I just lost a dog to cancer [different kind]

-make REAL sure it is not an abscess - our dog had a split tooth the vet did not diagnose because of how it was split it was not real obvious - he had puss breaking through the side of his face under his eye and the vet thought it was nasal cancer [he completely ruled out an abscess and did all kinds of tests]. A second vet picked it up right away, pulled the tooth and solved the problem.
