Case #080615v: Cansema® Tonic III & Unspecified Canine Skin Cancers
I wonder if you could send me a paypal link to buy some more of your Amazon III Tonic for my dog, Red. I wrote some months ago with a doggie problem and Cathryn advised me to get the Tonic. I am pleased to say his condition stablized, no advancement of the black skin lesions and clean blood tests so far after nearly a year on.

Case #050714v: Cansema® Tonic III & Mites
We had a very chronic recalcitrant problem with ear mites with our cats. I used a little of an old bottle of tonic, watered down, on a cotton swab and the critters disappeared in not time. :-).
Haven't had the problem since. I TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE TO NO AVAIL.

Case #032714v: Cansema® & Cutaneous Haemangiosarcoma
Hi. First, I would like to tell you that your salve is amazing. I contacted you last year to get help regarding a cancer my dog got from the sun (cutaneous haemangiosarcoma). It worked. It's gone, and (so are) the red spots on her belly.

Case #090213v: Cansema® & Canine Oral Cancer Case
[Editor's Note: Sometimes, especially with older pets, we end up curing the cancer, but not an unrelated health care problem about which we had no knowledge. Such is the case with this veterinary report from Australia.]
Twelve year old Australian Terrier diagnosed with cancerous tumor in her upper gum area with “mets” to the eye . . . (Sadly) she still died of kidney failure, but there was no cancer. Thank you for your kind words, Cathryn.
After speaking to the Vet again. It appears almost certain that it wasn't the cancer that took Sammy's life but kidney failure. All the signs point towards this. Sammy was drinking extreme amounts of water and also losing weight even though she was eating properly.
So it's come as consolation for me (and you!) that what we were doing was actually working! The vet said it was quite remarkable that Sammy was still alive with this particular cancer some 9 months after it was diagnosed. He said in his vast experience most dogs only live 2-4 months with this cancer. He said as far as he could tell the tumor had not spread all that much from 9 months ago (he said it's quite amazing!).
So it appears your advice was spot-on, Cathryn, and we were winning the fight against the cancer. Unfortunately her kidney failure ended her life. I am convinced Cansema works and if I or any of my loved ones ever get cancer I will certainly be recommending it to them.
Once again, thank you so much for your kind assistance and keep up the great work. :)

Case #071913v: Cansema® & Feline Cancer
Thank you so much for your product as it did the trick in 3 days. The cat scratched at it some, especially right before it fell out. I guess it was cancerous! You can use these pics if you would like to show others the result.
I am forwarding the pics that I took.

Case #110212v: "My experience with Cansema" -- Equine Sarcoids
I have owned my 9 year old Anglo-Arab mare since she was a yearling. A lovely horse with no problems, except she regularly gets sarcoids. I try to catch them when they are small. At first I called in the vets and she underwent treatment with Liverpool Cream for six of them. It worked but the treatment was very painful for the horse, left sizeable scars and I vowed never to do it to her again. Only the vet could use the cream and that involved daily visits over a week, which meant it was expensive. Then the vets tried laser treatment on another 5 small ones. It took 4 hours, the horse had to be heavily sedated with local anaesthetic all over her hind end and sores were left. That too was expensive.
I researched sarcoids and treatments on the internet and found out all about Cansema Black Salve, specifically produced by Alpha Omega Labs as the true Cansema. I ordered a jar and at the appearance of the next sarcoid I dutifully used the salve according to the instructions. (I tested it on myself as well).
To my delight the Cansema worked. The horse was not in too much discomfort as an eschar formed, fell off and healed over. I have used it on several sarcoids since, all with good results, though sometimes it has taken two treatments just to make sure the sarcoid is gone. For the horse, the application itself is not painful, but for three or four days, after it gets hot and swollen round the site as the Cansema does its job. Once the eschar forms (about 10 days) and lifts from the surrounding tissue, the horse doesn’t seem that bothered. But it is best not to fiddle with it as nature takes over. The eschar drops off after about three weeks leaving a ‘hole’ which heals over quickly. Job done. No need to sedate horse for treatment or have expensive vet visits, but most importantly it is acceptable to the horse. I am not saying the horse looks forward to the application, but a few minty sweets easily distracts her from the treatment.
For the owner, the simplicity is great and the beauty is it leaves healthy skin alone. Smear the Cansema on the sarcoid and walk away and let nature do the rest. If I spot anything looking ‘dodgy,’ I treat it. If it is nothing, the Cansema does nothing. If it is a sarcoid, the Cansema gets on with the job.
I am greatly impressed with how it works and the fact that bloodroot and the other herbs in Cansema are natural ingredients. Also the sites that were treated by Cansema leave much smaller scars than Liverpool Cream or laser treatment.
So for me I am sticking with Cansema and keep a jar on hand all the time, but I make sure its the proper stuff from Alpha Omega Labs and not imitations. I use Cansema Deep Tissue because it just takes one application, but I have used the vet version, as well. I am very grateful to Alpha Omega Labs for keeping this product available to horse owners worldwide. It is a blessing to horses and owners and has saved me thousands in vet bills.
I would just like to add that the customer service at Alpha Omega Labs is excellent. They respond to any queries promptly and with great courtesy, and I get the impression they really value their customers. Its a good feeling to have a product and supplier you can trust.

Case #082708v: General Commentary : Pat McKay
Cansema® Vet User : 1990's to Present
. . . Now that you are back in business, I am writing a "small book" about a great many of the cases I've helped since 1992, people and animals, and I'm including my whole take on what dogs/cats should be fed during the healing, what supplements to give, how to use both the black salve and the Tonic III, because there are some things I think would be more appropriate for animals than what is now being suggested.
Anyway, when I complete my writing, I will send all of it to you, and you can pick and chose whatever information you would like to put in your testimonials or other sections of your site, and what you would not like to include. For right now, by all means, you have my permission to include in your testimonials what I have written in my previous email. You may also mention www.animalhomeopathy.org; however, until I talk with Richard Pitcairn, there won't be any information on Cansema on that site.
Even though I am the founder of the Society for Animal Homeopathy (SfAH), I respect the opinions of Richard Pitcairn, DVM, PhD, because of his vast knowledge of veterinary medicine, and in particular, homeopathy. He was kind enough to accept the presidency of this organization. He has not used Cansema, so I will submit my writing to him when it is finished so that he is aware of what it can do, and then I will ask him how he feels about adding Cansema onto the SfAH site. He is quite a purist when it comes to alternative veterinary medicine, so I have no idea in advance how he will feel about Cansema. We are a team on this particular site, so I will have to see how he feels about Cansema before including it on our site.
However, if he decides he doesn't want to include a section on Cansema, then I intend to start another site, just for Cansema. There is a yahoo group who is very open to Cansema that has asked me to present information to them, and it would make it much more acceptable to the yahoo group if they could send their dog/cat people to an animal site rather than promote Cansema in the chat portion of the yahoo group. They prefer not to mention specific products. That's another reason why I am doing this present writing, to give people who are considering using it on their dogs/cats some of my personal experiences for the past 16 years. Fortunately, when I retired and closed my businesses in 2003 I had quite an inventory of both your black salve and your Tonic III. So I've been able to continue helping animals these past five years. I've never dared use any other products, so I wondered what I would do when I ran out, and here you are again, just in the nick of time. Thanks again.
