Alternative Medicine for Pets/Paw Paw for cancer in pets

Question
I have a ferret with Lymphoma and am looking into alternative treatments for him.  I have read a lot about PawPaw and am wondering if that could be used for him?  If so, how much to give him?  I can't find anything on the internet about using it on animals.

Thanks!

Barbara and Coco

Answer
Hello Barbara,

I am not familiar with Ferret physiology, so I hesitate to answer your question. I recommend that you contact Dr Gerald Wessner at 352-245-2025. He is a holistic vet who practices largely homeopathy and could possibly help your friend, He has helped many of my canine clients with Lymphoma.

Hope this helps.
