|The Best Cure For Canine Cancer Is Prevention
Cancer begins when carcinogens damage DNA, which then
waits for just the right opportunity to create cancerous cells.
The good news is your dog’s body has a built-in mechanism
to kill cancer cells; a gene called p53. However exposure to
toxins and viruses can damage that gene and limit its ability
to protect the body from the spread of cancerous cells.
We all know that treatment options for cancer aren’t all that
effective. The best cure for cancer is to just not get it in the
first place. Happily, there are easy, actionable steps you can
take to prevent cancer in your furry family members. Here is
a list that every pet owner should be aware of.
THE NUMBER ONE WAY TO PREVENT CANCER IN YOUR
FUR BABIES IS:
#1 Reduce the use of flea and tick products
flea tick dangersDr. Dobozy of the Environmental Protection
Agency’s (EPA’s) pesticide division states that one of the
laboratory effects of fipronil in the popular flea and tick
product Frontline, is thyroid cancer and altered thyroid
While the company creates the impression that their product
does not migrate into the body, radiolabeled fibronil was
found in several organs and in the fat of tested dogs and was
also excreted in their urine and feces.
Bio Spot Flea and Tick Control, Defend Exspot Treatment and
Zodiac FleaTrol Spot On all contain one or both of the active
ingredients Permethrin and/or Pyriproxyfen. Permethrin has
been implicated as a carcinogenic insecticide causing lung
cancer and liver tumors in laboratory animals. Exposure to a
carcinogen typically occurs many years before the cancer
appears. Often times it never escalates into a cancerous
growth. Imagine how potent the carcinogens are that create
cancer within several months in a laboratory setting.
Don’t think that the numerous products not mentioned here
are safe. According to the Center for Public Integrity, who
collected information through the Freedom of Information
Act, the “natural” pyrethrins (naturally occurring compounds
from the chrysanthemum plant) and pyrethroids (the
synthetic counterpart) caused double the fatalities (1,600)
from 2002 to 2007 than the non-pyrethroid compounds.
There are natural products that are effective for fleas and
ticks. Do your pet a favor and look for safer alternatives. Here
is a simple recipe you can make and use at home.

|Upon reading I found out that Frontline Plus is not truly a repellent:
FRONTLINE Plus affects fleas and their eggs when they are exposed to
FRONTLINE Plus on your pet’s coat. So in order to have them die, they have
to be on your pet first. If you observe a small number of fleas, remember
FRONTLINE Plus works by killing these fleas as they come into contact with
the product on the pet's coat. FRONTLINE Plus is not a repellent, therefore if
your pet is exposed to a source of fleas in the home or external environment,
fleas may be observed on the coat from time to time. These new fleas will
be killed within 24 hours. You cannot stop your pets from picking up fleas if
your pet shares its environment with other pets and wildlife. They will still be
able to enter your home and infest it. Some fleas do not have to bite in order
to be killed by FRONTLINE Plus but fleas can bite as quickly as 60 seconds
from the time they jump onto your pet. These are the words of Merial: See link
