VET USES CANCER TREATMENT TO RELIEVE JOINT PROBLEMS IN DOGS.
A leading vet has started prescribing a long-established cancer treatment to transform the mobility of dogs suffering from joint problems.
Richard Allport, a vet for more than 40 years with practices in Potters Bar and Bayswater, discovered that CV247, a cancer treatment invented in the mid-1990s, has a dramatic effect as an anti-inflammatory.
"CV247 is mostly used as a treatment for cancer in dogs - but its composition of primarily natural constituents I've found has a clear and positive effect on dogs suffering from joint mobility issues," said Richard.
"I prescribe it as a treatment for cancer and related issues, and I noticed that around 80% of the dogs prescribed CV247 quickly became far brighter and perkier in their demeanour.
"When I looked into it, it became apparent that the majority of the constituents of the treatment contributed towards an anti-inflammatory effect - a bit of an old-fashioned 'tonic' - which often gave dogs more mobile joints, made them feel better in themselves.
"That feelgood appeared to be a hugely positive contributor to a dog reacting positively to treatment for cancer and related issues. Dogs don't analyse how they feel: but they feel better before they get better. Dogs react to the way they feel at that moment.
"Traditional drugs and treatments are very effective for the right patient at the right moment, but I would urge pet owners to try natural medicine whenever possible - they'd be pleasantly surprised by the results, and will instantly recognise the absence of drug-related discomfort, particularly in older and more sensitive or vulnerable pets."
Richard Allport qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the Royal Veterinary College, London, UK in 1973. After ten years as a veterinary surgeon in general practice, he began to specialise in holistic medicines. In July 1996 he opened the NMC as a referral centre for pets, offering treatments with acupuncture, homoeopathy, flower essences and herbal medicine for pets. Richard is a past president of the British Association of Homoeopathic Veterinary Surgeons, and holds the qualification of Veterinary Member o the Faculty of Homoeopathy (VetMFHom). He is a member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists, and the European Herbal Veterinary Medical Association. Richard has written several books on natural medicines for pets, writes regular columns in Dogs Today and Cat World magazines, and has appeared regularly on radio and TV programmes.
