There is a lot of discussion in the forums about Power Mushrooms from Health Concerns as a valuable all natural immune boosting supplement for dogs with cancer.
The primary ingredient in Power Mushrooms is the Ganoderma (Reishi) Herbal Formula that combines four of the most commonly used mushrooms in Chinese herbal medicine. Two of these, Ganoderma and Tremella, help strengthen and stabilize the organ systems of your pet’s body. The other two, Poria and Polyporus, assist the digestion and assimilation of the other mushrooms. The effect of this herbal combination is overall energy stabilization and resistance to stress and illness. The all natural Power Mushrooms supplement is ideal for immune system support, cancer care, and geriatric animals.

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)
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.

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.
Thanks for asking Lizzi, good questions. We’re not exactly sure… this is what we found out from Health concerns:
Hope this helps. In the Tripawds Downloads blog, Aloha Medicinals provides more information about their mushroom cultivation process for K9 Immunity.
