Q. My hamster has a tumor on her hind leg, it has grown rapidly. I wonder an injectable treatment with mistletoe how effective is.
A. Studies testing mistletoe's ability to stop cancer cell growth in animals have yielded mixed and inconsistent results, depending on the extract used, the dose tested, the way it was given, and the type of cancer studied. I would not believe it is a reliable form of treatment for your pet's condition, unfortunately. Also, if you live in the U.S., the FDA has banned the sale and use of mistletoe for anything other than clinical studies.
