I started Gillian on shark cartilage supplements. I really wanted bovine, just on principle, but shark is supposedly more effective. In any case, it was far easier to find. The company is a reputable one, and says it comes from a limited number of legally harvested for food sharks. I’m still uncomfortable with the idea of using shark products, so if that’s all you have to say, keep it to yourself. I already am doubting my decision to purchase the tablets.
My boss laughed at me when he found out I was “resorting to homeopathic bullshit for the sake of a doomed pet”. It’s not like stripping down naked, tying virgin goat intestines around your neck and dancing naked under the light of a full moon. There’s a chance that the supplement slows the growth of new blood vessels, thus attempting to slow tumor growth.
I can’t afford the $500+ for surgery. Vets up here tend to be crazy expensive, which is why none of my rats are spayed or neutered. This is something relatively harmless I can try to buy my precious girl more time without endangering her further. I feel like I need to take a chance that doesn’t cause further harm if it doesn’t do anything.
