My pet has cancer - Hepatocellular carcinoma

  • June 17, 2015 4:25 PM EDT

    My 10 year old Boston Terrier has Hepatocellular Carcinoma - she had part of her liver removed but her vet couldn't get it all. Any suggestions for food, supplements, and treatment?

    The good news is that incomplete resection of this particular tumor may not greatly affect outcome. Because it is the job of the liver to metabolize and detoxify, the tumors respond to very few treatments medically. If there is significant tumor left, I would suggest finding a board-certified surgeon to remove the remainder if possible.
