Dr. Loops Homeopathic Osteosarcoma and Mast Cell Cancer Protocols for Dogs and Cats

If there ever was a rock star of holistic veterinary medicine, it’s Dr. Charles Loops, DVM of North Carolina. As a practicing homeopathic veterinarian for the last 35 years, he is highly sought-after because of his great success rate in managing cancer in cats and dogs with homeopathy remedies. He works with pet parents from around the globe, like Cody’s, and about 95 percent of Dr. Loops’ clients work with him via phone consultations.

What’s Homeopathy?

A homeopathic vet takes a holistic approach to treating disease. After getting a thorough understanding of the animal’s environment, lifestyle, behavior and background that may play a role in the illness, the vet will prescribe a homeopathic medicine called a remedy. According to Dr. Loops:

Homeopathic remedies are prepared from a wide range of substances – animal, vegetable, and mineral. Their preparation involves a process of sequential dilution in alcohol/water and succussion (vigorous shaking), a process known as potentization. This process of potentization enables the homeopath to prescribe medicines which possess an enhanced curative effectiveness with essentially NO toxic side effects, unlike current orthodox drugs.  All homeopathic medications are FDA certified and approved and, in fact, licensed for “over the counter” sales, although availability is not that common.

There’s a wide variety of opinions about homeopathic remedies. Veterinarians who are more in line with traditional Western medicine call it hocus pocus, and while concrete clinical studies about its efficacy are practically non-existent, we’ve seen many Tripawds members beat the osteosarcoma odds after working with Dr. Loops to manage the disease.

One of Dr. Loops’ longest bone cancer survivors was our dear friend Eisen, who lived to the ripe old age of 12 after beating osteosarcoma for over four years!

A Homeopathic Approach to Osteosarcoma

Every animal’s treatment is approached on a case-by-case basis, but here is Dr. Loops’ general approach toward treating osteosarcoma:

Classical homeopathic prescribing, the selection of the one, most similar homeopathic remedy, repeated only when the effects of the previous dose have subsided, and with the correct potency matched to the energy of the patient and their disease, is the highest and most effective use of this great system of medicine. In the case of aggressive cancer, when the balance of the vital energy of the body has been overwhelmed, I find that it takes more to slow or stop the progression of the disease and the demise of the patient than single remedy prescribing. To help more of my patients deal with cancer, I have struggled over the past twenty years to find methods of treatment that provide more consistent and reproducible positive results.

The treatment methodology I have developed stimulates homeopathically, the patient’s ability to re-balance their immune system, thus attacking the tumor by taking both a constitutional remedy (Classical) and secondarily, another remedy that specifically relates to the tumor type or location. The genetic and environmental influences that have predisposed this patient to cancer can be addressed with a third homeopathic remedy.

A Homeopathic Approach to Mast Cell Cancer Tumors

If your dog or cat has just been diagnosed with mast cell cancer, it might seem overwhelming and scary but take a look at Dr. Loops’ hopeful information about how he treats mast cell center tumors:

In my practice I treat between twenty to thirty dogs with this tumor condition per year. I have seen patients with a Grade I MCT that developed many more tumors and patients with Grade III that never had another tumor. I consider mast cell tumors a systemic condition, regardless of the grade, and feel the potential for reoccurrence is always there. I treat this condition aggressively and I don’t recommend reducing the intensity of the homeopathic treatment until two years pass without the appearance of more mast cell tumors. In fact, most pet families never stop the remedies and this causes no long term issues.

Many of my patients have normal life spans with the MCT condition. Some get multiple tumors, some owners choose to have multiple surgeries done, some dogs only get one or two tumors over their lifespan and others never have another tumor after the first one. The odds of reoccurrence are very unpredictable for dogs with mast cell tumors but for most patients, they can lead a normal life, even when more tumors appear.

Treatment costs for homeopathic cancer management are far less than treating pet cancer with conventional medicine. As a bonus, there are no side effects with homeopathy. If you’re considering a holistic approach to managing your dog or cat’s cancer, this is not something you should attempt on your own. Instead, we encourage you to give Dr. Loops a try.

  1. This is great information…especially since he will correspond for out of state patients! We used to have a wonderful holistic vet here in town. When I looked her up after Kender’s diagnosis, I was sad to find she had moved out of state. This may be a better option for Kender and our family once we find out for sure what type of cancer she has. Thank you for the info!

  2. I’ve an older female cat (14 yrs) who has been diagnosed with mast cell tumors.. This first occurred 2 yrs ago & was treated with surgery..
    Another one occurred a year later, with another surgery.. and it came back with a vengeance this month as multiples (6-8 spots) the vet doesn’t want to do surgery again with so many on her, so she’s going to recommend other options..
    So I’m wondering what you would do in her case?

  3. My 14 year old tiny tabby cat has just been diagnosed with osteosarcoma in the upper left hand jaw where her incisor tooth would be if she still had it. She is on pain meds but the vet said they do not cope with the horrific pain of bone cancer and that she will have to be pts because of the pain within 3-6 months. You would not know she was unwell, she eats and maintains her weight, her urine was clean, her blood work showed no problems. What is the solution, I want the cancer gone!

  4. Gwen, please see a veterinary oncologist if you haven’t already, they will be able to give you more treatment options. We send all our best to you and your sweet kitty, we hope she has many many more great days ahead.

  5. My 9 year old Labrador has been diagnosed with mast cell tumor on ventral part of abdomen, I got it surgically removed 2weeks back n now the histopathology reports are in n it confirms that it is a mast cell containing lesion, features favor urticaria pigmentosa like disease of dog. Now my vet has suggested to meet an oncologist to decide further course of action.. which would be radiation I guess.I am planning to get complete scanning done just to confirm that it has not spread to other parts of d body.So just in case if d scanning reports shows no spreadind of tunor, is radiation then necessary after surgical removal of mast cell tumor Or can I straight away go for the homeopathic approach. I am not completely aware of d side effects of radiation so I am skeptical abt it.Dont want him to go through more pain.

    • Best wishes for your pup! It is best to consult with your oncologist for a professional opinion. Dr Loops also offers telephone consultation.

  6. My 2 year old male chinese sharpei was diagnosed with Mast Cell Tumor grade I on his tongue. His vet told us that its very rare that a Mast Cell Tumor would be on the tongue. Our vet did refer us to an Oncologist and they are charging us almost 4,000 and that does not include chemo treatment. We just don’t have that kind of money. Is there hemopathic medicines that I can give him. Thank you.

    • Hi Gina. I’m sorry to hear about your pup. It’s OK if you don’t have the funds for chemo, there are no right or wrong choices. I would consult Dr. Loops directly so that you are not wasting time or money on remedies that may not be appropriate. Best wishes to you and your sweet doggie.
