Q. My 11 year old cat has stage 2 cancer in his lymph nodes. On the left side of his jaw and neck. I heard that there are holistic drops that will help.

Answered By

A. Holistic medications may help ease symptoms associated with cancer, however they are not usually a cure for the cancer itself. It may be best to try and find a holistic veterinarian in your area who can work with you on finding the right natural treatments for alleviating symptoms in combination with more current treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy to work with. If you don't have a holistic vet and are in the US you can search for one in your area here: http://www.ahvma.org/find-a-holistic-veterinarian/
