Dr. Smith’s Reply:

  1. How much does treatment cost? The treatment costs 300-750 depending on what you are using i.e. injectable, paste, and or oral.
  2.  What is the success rate? The medicine works pretty well depending on size, grade, and/or a number of tumors.
  3.  Do the patients seem like they are in pain? No! maybe a little discomfort but not acute pain.
  4.  Can I order the salve from you or do you have to see her first? A veterinarian needs to see the animal to properly inform you of treatment expectations and so forth.
  5.  Do you know of any other holistic vets closer to Louisville Ky? Yes! You can look at www.tcvm.com or pettao.com to find one.
  6. If I can’t order the salve from you where would you recommend me buying it from? A veterinarian in your area.
  7. How long do treatments last, how long does it take the slave to work and then heal? there are different protocols depending on the extent of the masses. In general, I use paste 5 days on and 5 days and evaluate.
  8. Do you need to see the patient first? yes!
  9. Do you think it’s too late? Hard to say! If systemic signs are present like anemia and lethargy, then may not be effective.
  10. Is it worth it? If the tumors are grade 1 or 2, then yes! if tumors have spread to the regional lymph nodes, then it’s tough.
