What is Oral Neoplasene?
Oral Neoplasene is an herbal veterinary medication made of bloodroot extract, halogens and water.
In our clinic, the term “Neoplasene” is often interchanged with the term “Bloodroot”, because bloodroot is a much easier word for our clients to remember.
In reality, Neoplasene is a derivative of bloodroot extract.
Generic bloodroot extract will not provide the same benefits as veterinary Neoplasene.
Neoplasene treats cancer by encouraging the death of diseased (cancer) cells, while not affecting healthy cells.
Our clinic often uses oral Neoplasene as part of a customized cancer care plan.
Neoplasene is only available through a veterinarian.
How to Give Your Dog or Cat Oral Neoplasene
An example recipe for home-cooked food is:
- Cooked ground meat (50%)
- Steamed white rice (25%)
- Cooked chopped vegetables (25%)
Feed your pet twice daily.
You may add in fruit once a week.
Make sure you thoroughly mix the Neoplasene dose with the meal.
Make sure your pet is really hungry and really thirsty at meal time.
You might have to slightly alter your pet’s feeding schedule to accomplish this.
Tips for Giving Oral Neoplasene With Meals:
- Withhold water for two hours before meal/medicine time.
- Only give food at meal/medicine time (i.e. twice daily).
- Feed a meaty food.
- Avoid dry or raw food as the cell membrane (meat) or cell wall (vegetables) of raw food does not absorb the unpleasant tasting/emetic oral medication well.
- Mix the dose of Bloodroot/Neoplasene with the food THOROUGHLY.
Sometimes, the above protocol does not work because a pet continually refuses to eat food containing Neoplasene.
If your pet refuses to eat food containing Neoplasene, you may squirt Neoplasene directly in your pet’s mouth via syringe.
Neoplasene is very bitter. Your pet will not like the taste!
Make sure the syringe is inserted into your pet’s mouth past the tongue so he/she doesn’t taste the Neoplasene.
Afterward, make sure to feed your pet and provide plenty of water after administering Neoplasene to reduce the emetic effect and get the bad taste out of your pet’s mouth.
