Essiac Tea For Dogs



essiac tea for dogs

Cancer affects pets as well. In North America, nearly half of all pets past 10 years old will develop some form of cancer. This poses a problem since chemotherapy and radiation are, more often than not, too harsh for dogs to take. It is also much harder to treat dogs because of the lack of verbal communication between animal and human. Luckily, Essiac Tea for dogs may be administered in small to large doses, as needed.

Essiac Tea for dogs is a much cheaper alternative to traditional cancer treatment and drugs. It’s safe for dogs and works much like the way it works for humans. Having your dog drink Essiac Tea will help strengthen the immune system, as well as destroy both benign and malignant tumors. Blood purification is one of the most important benefits of Essiac Tea as this removes toxins that have accumulated in the body like lead, mercury and other heavy metals. Essiac Tea for dogs is also not just a treatment for cancer, but for arthritis and gastrointestinal diseases as well. You don’t have to wait until your dog falls ill to give this brew. It’s much easier to prevent, than to treat, after all.

Your first instinct may be to administer a larger dose than recommended to speed up the process. Owners are discouraged to increase doses of Essiac Tea in case your dog has undiagnosed bowel problems as properties in this tea may trigger peristalsis, which is the act of moving contents through the bowel. This could cause diarrhea or in some cases, constipation. Prolonged diarrhea causes loss of fluids and overall loss of nutrients.

Large doses are also almost always accompanied by diarrhea because of the presence of the herb, Rhubarb as one of the main ingredients. Since dogs have much shorter digestive systems than humans, it is recommended to increase the amount until they get diarrhea as a threshold, and then decrease the dosage to a normal level.

Dosages of essiac tea for dogs and other pets:


Weight Volume Frequency
1 – 15 lbs. 1/2 oz. of tea Once a day only
15 – 40 lbs. 1/2 oz. of tea Twice a day only
40 – 80 lbs. 1 oz. of tea 2-3 times a day (or as needed)
80 – 130 lbs. 2-3 oz. of tea 2-3 times a day (or as needed)

Before giving medicine to any pet, you must determine the correct dosage. The best way to do that is to check your pet’s weight. Aside from the values mentioned in the table above, you can also administer a fraction of the dosage used for humans. For example, an average human’s weight is 140-150lbs. If the directions say, “drink 5 oz. of Essiac Tea” and you have a 50lb. dog, then the estimated dosage is a third of an average human’s dosage, which is 1.67 oz. of Essiac Tea. If you have a 30lb. cat, you would give it a fifth of an average human’s dosage, which is 1 oz. of Essiac Tea.

Methods of Administering Essiac Tea to Dogs:

Perhaps the best and easiest way is by using a syringe or eyedropper to ensure that they do not let any Essiac Tea go to waste. This will make them thirsty, so make sure that they have a water source available 24/7. You can also mix chicken or beef broth with the brew, to make it more appealing.

    My 6 1/2 year old black lab has an acanthomatous ameloblastoma epulis tumor on the roof of his mouth. We would like to try the essiac tea. We have him on Shark Cartilage, about 3 weeks, and just today, started him on Neem. Would we be able to put him on all 3 at the same time. The tumor is benign, but has grown. Thank you.

    Hello -
    I have a 10yr. old german shorthair that has presented himself w/ two nerouligical disorders currently he has late life seizures. He has not had an MRI but the vets said it is more that likely the poor boy has a brain tumer that possibly has spread to his liver. The liver and heart have enlarged (proven through X/rays) He is starting to look like every other senior with a cabinet full of meds… currently he is taking Keppra 500mg 11/2 twice a day and just one tab in the late afternoon … in addition he takes Vetri-mega Probiotic twice dily w/food. Also prednisone 5mg twice a day..spironolactone 25mg 2tabs once a day and enapapril 10mg 1 a day. I read alot about food, health and supplments and was just wondering if there is a essaic product suggested that may help this old guy? What exactly is recommended and will it clash with any of these meds? Another interesting item I have only read about is that cancer cannot live in a akline body, would that be ture with our dogs also? The organic viniger/alum..free baking soda and water.. would that in any way hurt a dog? Would love to hear comments – just searching.. so we can make the best decisions for this sweet dog. I understand this is only educational information – this guy has nothing to loose he was only given a few months

      Hi Rebecca, we have some of the same issues. Did you try essiac, and did you keep giving prednisone? Did you hear back from the essiac people? Thanks for your time..we have a 7 year old Collie, and had the MRI done ;-(

    Hello! I was wondering if this tea could be warmed and used as a rinse over sores on a dogs belly? Would that help draw out any infection? I’ve read that you can use the herbs as a poultice but she won’t let anyone touch them….any ideas would be helpful! Thank you!
