I am so sorry about Clair. What a valiant effort you both made.
Thank you for your posts and prayers for Clair. Altho' I continued with the resveratrol, her deterioration in behavior and liver bloodwork were dramatic. I managed to find an experimental drug and make the needed arrangements for it to be tried with her. I was able to locate a very progressive veterinary oncologist at a Missouri university who agreed to try this having the necessary willingness, skill and equipment. The chemical intermediates were mixed by the reseacher and FedExed to the hospital in Missouri where they were combined (to satisfy FDA regulations), while Clair and I drove to MO. It was infused intraarterially directly to the liver. Clair came thru' the procedure very well on Monday. This promising drug, in the laboratory, has actually eradicated, not simply reduced, liver cancer in 100% of a group of laboratory animals. Unfortunately, by the time she was treated, the hemangiosarcoma had consumed so much of her liver that it was no longer able to support her body's needs. Still, we tried...with hope of a miracle. Sadly, this swift and vicious cancer had its way, and she went to the Rainbow Bridge at 4:30 Wednesday morning, June 24th. The developers had never tried the new drug on a canine, so both the reseacher and Oncology Foundation have praised Clair for having made a meaningful contribution to the future of cancer treatment. Post mortem showed additional masses in the kidney and one in the pancreas. More will be known in a few weeks when the histopath on her treatment comes back. Clair was a trooper until the very end, but obviously depressed and tired of fighting. She is dearly missed, and will be remembered always.
I think, (just a guess) from personal experience, resveratrol is most effective with hormonal cancers...or cancers that might be due to excessive estrogen. Minni's cancer was in her mammary glands. Dolly's cancer was a tumor in the groin area. I also think it has to be used very early in the disease.
Much sympathy to you. I know how painful it is to lose a beloved pet. It's like losing a child.
