Oakland Veterinary Referral Services is looking nationwide for dogs suffering from stage II splenic hemangiosarcoma to submit for a study of the benefits of traditional Chinese herbal medicine (TCHM) as treatment to significantly extend life.

“The purpose of this study is to determine if treatment with a specific herbal therapy regimen is helpful in prolonging survival time after surgery in dogs with HSA and no evidence of cancer spread…We hypothesize that dogs treated with this standardized protocol after splenectomy will have improved survival times over historical controls treated with splenectomy alone, and will provide long-term survival rates comparable to or better than historical controls treated with splenectomy and chemotherapy.”
