Sylvester the Lymphoma Fighter
"It was October 2017 when my cat Sylvester was admitted to a vet clinic for vomitting bile and having difficulty pooing. The vet thought that he must have eaten something that got stuck in his intestine. We had him transferred to a vet hospital and agreed for a surgical procedure (exploratory laparotomy). The surgeon, check his abdominal cavity for any object that he could have ingested that might have caused the problem. What they saw were lumps, lymphoma in his intestine. The vet said that the mass can be controlled by medicine but the prognosis varies from cats. They told us that Sylvester needed steroids and chemotherapy drug (alkylating agent) to stop the cancer cell from getting bigger. I was kinda apprehensive giving my cat cancer drugs because of the side effects so I opted for the steroids. November 2017 - we started giving him steroid 10mg. I am a nurse so I knew the side effects of the drugs when you administer it on human what more to a cat. They said that he may have 3 months to live. He recovered slowly and responding to the drug well. January 2018 - Sylvester started to vomit bile again and his stool looked bad. We rushed him again to the vet and this time I have no choice but to agree to have him undergo chemotherapy medication plus the steroid. I knew these drugs will overworked the cat's vital organs like kidneys, liver and will weaken his immune system. So I started checking out health shops and pharmacies for vitamin supplements that I can use on Sylvester. I also searched the internet and by luck I chanced upon your website NHV Natural Pet. I do not want to give up on Sylvester so I read everything i need to know about NHV and its products. February 2018 - first shipment of NHV products came. I bought the Cancer super support kit 3 (ES Clear, Turmeric and Milk Thistle) The chemo drug was being administered to Sylvester one tab every three days. I am counting on the Turmeric and the Milk thistle to help strengthen his liver as his frail body detoxifies the drugs. NHV claimed that ES clear's cocktail of natural herbs will boost immune system and promotes quality of life so that's a big plus for me. April 2018 - it's been 6 months and he survived. He had blood test done. Blood glucose is elevated, liver function test (AST and ALT) still high, MCV is low, Reticulocytes HBS is high. The rest were all ok. Sylvester looked way better. He was eating good but this time we cut his food down. We give him a quarter of cat food in a tin for his breakfast and a quarter for dinner. He did drop his weight from 5 kilos to 4.2kilos. August 2018 - Still on steroid and cancer drug. Blood test done and results was way better. Liver Function is normal (AST and ALT),Blood sugar is normal, MCV is normal, Reticulocytes HBS is normal. I added NHV BK detox with his Cancer super support kit 3 (ES Clear, Turmeric and Milk Thistle). Sylvester started to gain weight and they lowered the dosage of the steroid from 10mg to 5 but still on chemo drug. January 2019 - He had another blood test done and the results were the same as the last time but he started having problems peeing. He was straining to urinate that he ended up peeing with blood. Sylvester was referred to the Vet hospital and they did a urinalysis and found sugar in his urine in spite that his blood sugar level is normal. It was negative for stones. The Vet there ordered to discontinue the chemo drug because it was weakening the cat immunity and had the steroid continued as 5 mg. Sylvester took antibiotics for the Urinary tract infection. Thats when I decided to get Tripsy to protect his kidneys and Felimm to increase his immunity for i noticed that his lymphocytes were low. June 2019 - Blood test done and it was really good. His lymphocytes is still on the red but he has increase his weight from 4.2 kgs to 5.42 kgs. The vet was happy enough to reduce his steroid tab from 5mg to 2.5mg once a day. I am still vigilant for any changes with his pee and poo and by God's grace he is doing well. He does take Vitamin B12 shots every month. Diet is important. Sylvester only eats wet food from tins and sachets and I know commercial cat food can be too rich so i just adjusted the servings for him. I am aware at some point his body will give up but I will do anything in my power to help him survive. Thank you NHV pet care for without you guys, Sylvester won't make it. Your products did a lot of amazing things to him and I am very grateful. Sylvester is taking ES Clear, Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Tripsy, Felimm, BK detox and his steroid tab." - Robert
