Yunnan Baiyao can stop some cancers from bleeding. As a veterinarian, I have seen dogs with nasal tumors sneezing blood profusely. I have also seen the bleeding stop when the dogs were started on Yunnan Baiyao.
The powder is easily administered by mixing it into a meal. Although it has a floral type scent, this has caused no hesitation in my pet eating his meal.
Ziggy is still living life to the fullest! Diagnosed with a Hemangiocarcinoma back in January and was given 6 months to live. Now we are at 9 months! We are shooting for a year. Most days are good. We started sprinkling the powder on his food because sometimes he would eat around the pill. He doesn’t even act sick. Very thankful for each day I have with zig.
Our 12 year old, 90 pound mixed breed was diagnosed with splenic hemangiosarcoma on July 13, 2022, and our vet said he'd likely pass within 1-6 weeks. We started giving him Yunnan Baiyao powder as soon as we received it, roughly July 18th, starting with 50 mg 3x a day. He's had immediate improvement in energy, less winded, general spunk/zest, running up hills, walking long distances, handling flights of stairs that previously wore him out. After three weeks, we've reduced the dose amount to about 25 mg 2x a day, and it seems to be sustaining him. We're so happy that he's made it this far and is enjoying his days.Fingers crossed for 6 more weeks.
Our dog was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor on his spleen in April 2021. I started using Yunnan Baiyao almost immediately. He has only had one incident since then when he presented with his original symptoms that led to the diagnosis, I gave him one of the "red" pills and he recovered by the next day. He is still a happy boy, doing well and I am thankful for this time with him.
Never thought something herbal would work so great!
