I HAVE AN 8 YEAR OLD BOXER WHO HAS HAD A CANCEROUS LUMP REMOVED SEVERAL YEARS AGO

Dr. Kruger,

I have an 8 year old boxer who has had a cancerous lump removed several years ago. Currently, she is suffering from terrible gum swelling and needs gum surgery. Any thoughts? Thanks,

Hi Pam,

As you may know, Boxers are very prone to cancer. This relates to poor immune system function. I would say get the surgery done ASAP if it has been deemed necessary. That’s about it...bottom line do what your vet advises. I have a supplement that will help improve your dog’s immune system. If you wish you could put your dog on the Everyday Health formula, and hopefully help protect your dog from further deficiency related problems. Hope this will help you.
