Sadly the anti-inflammatory effect is only on the tissue surrounding the tumour not the tumour itself. That is why prednisone is only effective for so long with PT (pituitary tumour), etc.Ration1802 said:I've had a couple of rats now that have had tumours (usually inoperable ones) and my vet uses antiinflammatories (sp?) to help inprove quality of life. I've been told that tumours are mostly inflammation and I've known anti-I's to shrink the size of the tumour.
They're not a cure, but they certainly help as a temporary cause.
Can you not keep in under control for a while and save up for the op? Perhaps there's another vet close by that may be able to do the op for less? Just an idea. I know how hard it can be to afford vets sometimes!
Until now. So there's nothing I can get "over the counter" to help Juniper? What about what Ration1802 said,about the Anti-I's? What exactly do those do? Oh and is there anything special I can give Juniper food wise? Extra vegie's...? Let me know!lilspaz68 said:You have been extremely lucky not to have gotten any.
