Osteosarcoma/Cancer Treatment





Barrett loved the Budwig pudding. If your dog doesn’t then obviously this won’t work for your dog. Keep in mind Barrett was 200lbs when we started this treatment. Adjust for the weight of your dog but if you can get them to eat more, give them all they want. 

One dose is 1/4 cup of cottage cheese with 2 tablespoons of flax oil and the 2 tsp of flax meal. I gave Barrett 4-6 doses at 1 feeding daily. Listed below are the four steps we used daily without fail. 



1.  Budwig Protocol   

(Do not give your dog sugar, it feeds the cancer. Give them blueberries, vegetables, etc)

  • 1 cup of low-fat cottage cheese

  • 8 tablespoons of flax seed oil (shake bottle well before using)


Blend this in the dogs’ stainless steel bowl. Use an immersion hand blender and blend until it’s the consistency of pudding with no lumps of cottage cheese. The blending of cottage cheese and flax oil creates a chemical reaction. Don’t ever fail your dog and under blend this pudding. I believe it’s that important.


In a small coffee grinder fill whole dark flax seeds just above the blades (approx 8 tblspns) and grind until it’s a course powder. The goodness is inside the flax seed. If you don’t grind them the dog will poop them out whole and all the benefit will be wasted as well as the cost of the flax seed.

With a spatula blend the ground flax seeds in the pudding and give your dog this pudding immediately, don’t let it set. If your dog doesn't like the pudding you can add stevia, fruit, fish, tuna, chunks of beef sticks, etc. Make sure you just fold in any other ingredients. 


  • Feed your dog this pudding 2-3 hours after their last meal, and 2-4 hours every night before bedtime. This is 4 doses daily, 1 time a day.

If Barrett’s shoulder was swelling, I would do 4 doses in the morning and 4 doses at night for a week and the swelling would go down. If your dog wants more any time, give it to them. If your dog shows signs of dis-interest with 8 doses a day, back it off to only 4 doses a day. You don’t want your dog to tire of the pudding.

Barrett tired of 4 morning doses and 4 at night so I had to hand feed him when I went back to 4 doses a day. 


2.  Green Bean Meal

In a large deep pan put approximately 2 cups of water with 2 large bags of frozen green beans and cook them until they’re tender (not mushy). Do not use canned green beans, ever.

Add:  (These are approximate measurements. I cook by dumping so if you eyeball it just don't go under the measurements I list)

  • 1/4 cup turmeric

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of liquid coconut oil (any brand)

  • 4 tablespoons of Great Lakes Gelatin

  • 2 tablespoons of Great Lakes Collagen

  • 1/4 cup of powdered reishi mushroom


Tip your pan to create a reservoir of the liquid, add the following into the liquid and mix the oils well into the liquid.

  • 8-10 drops of Rocky Mountain Black Cumin Essential Oil

  • 1 drop (only) of Rocky Mountain Oregano essential oil


Let your pan sit flat and mix everything together ensuring the liquid is well blended with all the ingredients. Store in the refrigerator.

Give this to your dog twice a day. You can add this mixture to their wet or dry dog food, or add fresh cooked chicken, tuna, vegetables…etc.  I gave Barrett approximately 1 1/2 -2 cups twice a day. Give your dog as much as they want.

I included the name brands that I used. If you think you have a better brand use it. Don’t use grocery store gelatin or collagen. I purchased the flax seed oil, flax seeds, collagen, gelatin and the powdered reishi mushroom all at Sunrise Natural food store in Auburn, Ca. You can find all these products in any health food store.

3.  CBD Oil...  

I gave Barrett CBD oil by mouth with a dropper at 14-18 drops daily. I also rubbed the CBD oil on his shoulder to help with the pain. I chose CBD oil as part of his treatment because of the research into the connection of CBD oil and cancer apoptosis, which is the death of cancer cells.

I strongly believe the combination of the Budwig Protocol, the green bean meals and the CBD oil are what made the difference in possibly stagnating Barrett's osteosarcoma.

4.  Tumor Site Spray...

(Dilute this spray if it seems too strong for your dog)

I created this spray to use on Barrett’s shoulder once a day. It seemed to help keep the swelling down. I also used this spray for follicular cysts. (Go to the follicular cyst treatment page)

  • 1/2 cup of water

  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar (with mother)

  • 3 drops of Rocky Mountain Black Cumin essential oil

  • 1 drop (only) of Rocky Mountain Oregano essential oil


Pour in a spray bottle and always shake well before use.




IMPORTANT… (drugs)

My goal with Barrett was to stagnate the tumor and feed his body. I tried to change his habits of running and jumping because I knew it was stressing the bone at the tumor site. UC Davis x-rays showed an approximate bone loss of 16%. At this point I knew fractures in the bone would begin. I didn’t want him to snap the bone because the pain would be excruciating, and it would be the end. My point, wrestle on the floor... alot! 

  • UC Davis put Barrett on a trifecta combination of pain killers; Gabapentin, Meloxicam and Tramadol. The Tramadol made Barrett too wobbly and agitated. I could only give him a 1/4 of the Tramadol pill daily in his 14th month during this treatment. There’s a fine line between controlling the pain and taking away the quality of your dog’s daily happiness. Become aware on a daily basis of that fine line.


  • In the last couple of months of Barrett’s life Dr. Peggy added Hydrocodone-Acetamin as we needed more help with the pain. Barrett was still running and jumping although much less.


If your dog stops drinking water and your efforts to get them to drink water fail, you can throw chunks of beef sticks or their favorite food in their water bowl with the water. You can also freeze meat, vegetables or fruit in small bowls or ice cube trays and give it to your dog as a treat.  





  • Once the cancer takes hold it can go from 0-60 in 2 days and the end is quick. You must be prepared otherwise your precious dog will be in EXTREME PAIN and suffer needlessly.    

  • You must have a plan of action and set up euthanasia with your veterinarian at the office or home euthanasia. You don’t want to hear the screams and howls of your dogs’ pain. Make a plan long before your dog gets to this point.


  • Please be there during euthanasia and hold your dog; touch them, kiss them, tell them you love them, thank them and talk to them. Gently help them transition from this life into their next life.  You owe them that because your walk together doesn’t end until they’re gone. They would lie beside you until you took your last breath. It’s called loyalty…until the end.


  • Do not weenie out and leave your precious loyal friend to die without you there.

  • Do not say I just can’t do it, it’s too hard.

  • No, it is not… just buck up and do it. Know you will have deep pain, that’s life.

  • Your dog came into your life to teach you unconditional love and loyalty until the very end, which is exactly what they gave you.  You must be loyal to them until their last breath, until the very end.
