    I just bought the Power Mushrooms for Mackenzie since there seem to be a lot of positive effect. I was wondering if you can give this to your dog if they’re still doing chemo treatments. I know that there are some supplements that can block the effectiveness of chemo and just want to make sure that this won’t or maybe I should hold off until she’s done with her final treatment? Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Kami (Mackenzie’s Mom)

    We suggest you discuss this with your vet for a professional opinion. We did, however, just post our video interview with Veterinary Cancer Group founder Dr. Mona Rosenberg. (Not yet in a blog post, see VCG interview in Jerry’s Tripawd Health video playlist.) In Part Two, Dr. Rosenberg discusses the use of “immune boosting” supplements during chemotherapy and why some studies indicat that is not advised.

    Thank you and will talk to my vet about this. I take Mackenzie to the VCG in Culver City (LA) so I would be very interested in watching this interview with Dr. Rosenberg. For some reason though when I click on this link to the video playlist, I get an error message. I’ve tried searching on the website too and can’t seem to find this. Is there something else I should be trying? Thanks again! Kami (Mackenzie’s Mom)

    when I click on this link to the video playlist, I get an error message.

    D’oh! There was a typo in that link. It is now fixed.

    FYI: The Tripawd Health Videos playlist (and many other movies) is on the Videos page of Jerry’s main blog, not here in the Tripawds Nutrition blog.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for pointing out the error.

    This may have been answered elsewhere, but does anyone know if you can give the power mushrooms with food? Ruby is not a discriminating eater, and has been eating them with her food.

    Thanks,
    Kim & Ruby

    From this forum discussion about power mushrooms it certainly sounds like giving them with food works just fine. Thanks for asking!

    Does anyone know what medium these mushrooms are grown on?
    I’ve noticed other mushroom supplements will say in the ingredients, for example, “Freeze-dried, powdered mushroom mycellum grown on Certified Organic brown rice.”

    I have pets with allergies so I want to know if this is grown on something that might cause a reaction.

  • 9    admin // Oct 26, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Thanks for asking Lizzi, good questions. We’re not exactly sure… this is what we found out from Health concerns:

    Our quality control program begins with the herbs themselves. We hand select the finest wild picked or organically grown herbs whenever possible, paying close attention to species, region of cultivation, time of harvest, and the spirit in which plants are grown and collected. We use only the most potent part of the plant. We do not use herbs that are endangered, sprayed or fumigated.

    Hope this helps. In the Tripawds Downloads blog, Aloha Medicinals provides more information about their mushroom cultivation process for K9 Immunity.
