Kitty Cat with severely growing breast tumors -- but lots of spirit

Is there any homepathic medicine which can help a very sweet docile cat with severe breast cancer tumors. She still has such a strong will to live -- I can't take that away from her -- and maybe by some miracle I can reverse this. Please help in anyway.

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I am so sorry to hear about your kitty... I was checking the forum to see if there were replies to my querry and I saw the post about your baby...

I am just learning about homeopathy and Namaste - a kind soul who paricipates on this site has helped me and my kitty, Pippy, greatly - I sincerely hope you find hope and relief here as well!!!

Just a few things I have learned since my other kitty was diagnosed w/ maligant oral melanoma in Aug. of this year: feed all (or as much as you can) raw food, use purified spring H20, switch to a paer, corn, pine, or wheat based litter, and most of all continue what you are already doing... caring for kitty!

(If you know about the above few items I mentioned please forgive me... as I am just learning!)

Best of luck to you and yours -oh and I'll end on a hopeful note... Felicity (kitty w/ melanoma) is in REMISSION... highly unusual, prognosis for this diease: radiation 4x's and wait about 5 months for death... we have a homeopath for him and have spent tons of money but it was worth it (way more than radiation and death at about 2500.00)....

Also, I think if you are more knowledgable or w/ the help of sites like this you may have an easier time making choices for your kitties health than I did (we went to a # of holistic practitioners intially, found one I thought was best - ended up not to be, but we seem to be on the right track now w/ new homeopath) so hopefully you can help your baby find peace and serenity on this most difficult journey ahead (and HURRAY she is happy and playing)- and hearing of her strong will to live... well even the western vets have remarked on that being a plus...

Good, good wishes to you both

Dearest Anne,

Thank you so much for your very touching and heartfelt words. It was most beautiful. I'm hoping that we're not too late -- since the tumours are throughout her chest. In fact she had been operated on and only the small ones could be taken out -- since there wasnt enough skin left for the large ones to cover over. I wish she was still playing -- but she is grooming herself and has such a strong will to live. I love animals so much and this one is one of the sweetest we have ever had. I will definitely give your suggestions a try and thank you so much for all of your caring. I hope for the continued success and good health of pippy. I know that we had a dog that was nearly gone from diabetes and our last homeopathic doctor gave her something -- never would tell me what -- her glucose dropped 300 points and of course we had to cut the insulin in half -- she gained 20 lbs and lived another year. But alas he has gone into teaching only and I cant reach him. Although Im trying to find a new source for Dr. Luc DeSchepper. I also know that he is the only 1 who can help me as well. I thank you again and that is how homeopathy works -- all by indications of the symtomatology and now the disease. With a heartfelt thanks and wishing you the best in the christmas season.

Heckla Lava-Breast tumors

Bromium-Left side of mammary glands are more affected and there may be coughing and nasal discharge.

Calc Fluor-Nodular tumors of mammary glands in pregnant females.

Iodum 30C-Tumors are together with shrinking of mammary tissue. Animals are too thin, with great appetite and small, hard, lymph glands.

Phytolacca 30C-Early stages of mammary tumors. Reduces the size and hardness of the growth.

Carbo Animalis 4X-Mammary tumors that are rock hard.

Is she spayed?

Namaste27 last decade
oh my good -- thank you one and all -- nope -- she isnt spayed.

So sorry -- i had severe migraines today and a visit to the dentist as well -- so this is my first chance to check my email.

Please note that unspayed females are at high risk for mammary tumors, especially if they are not being bred.

Dear Namaste,

I appreciate that and the only reason that we didn't get her spayed is because she was always sooooo tiny -- her name is TC -- short for Tea Cup. she was an indoor cat and all of our others were spayed or neutered. I thought that she might not be able to pull through the spaying. I will always regret that we didn't to the day that I die.

Thank you again for your help and to everybody else as well and also for the wonderful wishes. I think she fits the Iodum and am trying to find it out here.

Can I combine the Iodum and the Carbo Animalis? -- she has the hard tumours, the great appetite, getting thinner -- seems to meet both criteria.


Buchworm last decade
A key indicator of Iodum is a ravenous appetite with a corresponding loss of condition. Worse when quiet, in warm room and right side. Better: walking about and in open air. Just wanted to make sure it fits.

Carbo Animalis is good for geriatric animals and mammary tumors.

The two remedies do not antidote one another.

If you want a constitutional recommendation please post more detail about behavior, likes and dislikes, better from, worse from. Body type, energy, appetite, etc.

Does she still go into heat and did the tumors occur while in heat? Or did they increase in size following oestrus?

Namaste27 last decade
I got the Iodium 30 C today -- how often do I give it to her and should I put it in water and succuss (per Dr. Luc) and then give herpart of the water -- we gave her 1 whole pellet today.

Will post more details for the constitutional recommendation -- will put it all together in about a day or so-- Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Merry Merry Christmas to all who read my posts.

I honestly am not sure about how to dose the Iodum. Will have to read up on it. Most 30C remedies for long-standing issues you dose one time daily.

Some do dilute it in water and give one wet dose daily.

My homeopath has me take one dry dose and two wet doses daily. He said the dry dose is a burst of doses and the wet doses are single doses.

I am still learning as we go.

Dear Namaste, Ann & Mersing,

A brief update on Teacup (TC). After giving her 1 tablet of Iodum a day since we first wrote, intially a large tumour also developed behind her ear and then it blew open and drained all sorts of "yuck". In the meantime the tumours on her chest did much of the same thing. As of last night she completely shocked us -- after having little to no energy and being very wobbly on her feet and therefore choosing to take up residence between the dryer and the kitchen counter, I felt this little tap while I was in bed and it was TC!! She had managed to jump or climb down from the kitchen counter, walk across the house from the kitchen to the bedroom, climb up on the bed and slept in my arms all night - cuddled up -- which she couldnt do before either -- (until last night -- the poor soul would sleep almost in a handstand position- due to the size and uncomfortableness of the tumours). The tumours appear to be getting smaller, her eyes are clearer and she is appearing stronger. My hope and prayers are that this is not the sunshine before the storm -- but it does appear that there is a reversal in the disease.

Once again, thank you so much for all of your thoughts, prayers and assistance, I will never know how I can say thank you enough -- and will keep everybody updated on future successes.

We do have another kitty (Panther)who is also undergoing his complications. A few months ago, he started "snorkeling", a runny eye developed and a drippy nose, like he had a bad cold or even a sinus infection, but nothing could found whether by our vet and his examination (who has since retired) including xrays. Since he did have his "canine" teeth starting to extend below his chin -- it was thought that perhaps this was causing an obstruction and therefore 3 of his teeth were removed and he was put on amoxicilin. It didnt help.

About a week ago, he developed a severe swelling of the third eye on the left side, his "nose drippings" has escalated to expulsion of yellow to bloody mucus - sometimes out of both nostrils and sometimes his eyes were watery. His fur started to take on a sullen appearance, but he still has a great appetite, although it does appear that since his surgery -- he lost a little weight -- which I would imagine would be expected.

Anyways, as a result of the swelling, first I gave him a dose of Apis Mel, 6x, (I thought maybe he was allergic to our bunnies - or other animals) but then no change, so, I gave him Arnica Mont 6x and applied a melaleuca (triple antibiotic) to the lid of his eye. The swelling started centralizing to a pimple like pustule -- but it was still swollen across his eye (basically in the sinus cavity by appearance). The pustule blew open about 2 days ago, spewing forth "red thick muck". We continued to give him Arnica and the ointment and today he can open his eye and the swelling is receding.

Question, although I did slip in a dose of Allium Cepa, 6x in between all of these times, I ran out of it and therefore changed the course of remedy. I have also tried Pulsatilla, 6x. What would you suggest that I give him? If I don't have it will contact my local homeopathic store to see if they have it or can get it?

I hope I didn't make too many spelling errors in writing this - I had to retype the whole thing over since the first time I clicked the X intead of the - to minimize.

Additionally, since Panther is rather strong and hates having anything put in his mouth, I will have to start putting the tablets in water and feeding the water to him by eye dropper.

Thanks again so much for all of your help and assistance and a wonderful and happy new year to all.
