Jimmy has a tumour April 08, 2006 7:47 AM

Sorry for the cross post, anyone who is on more than one rat list.  I'm looking for any ideas to slow tumour growth or shrink them.

We are rather heartbroken that our oldest rat Jimmy (James deGris aka The Stainless Steel Rat) has a mast cell tumour on his ribs.  We are using Dr. Pitcairn's regimen of Bioplasma tissue salts, goldenseal tincture and an herbal blend called Essiac to help slow the growth.  Plus extra vitamins and minerals and cuddles.  I'm also doing reiki with him when he holds still, but I think he is on the way to the bridge faster than we would like.

Prayers and well wishes accepted.

I feel so bad for you and  Jimmy.  We  lost our last Guy the same way.  We now have a baby wild rat (Silky)  and hope he will not  get one.  Our last two had a turmor..  We started with rats 25 years ago and none had turmors.  I hear that the feeds do it.  We are feeding our new baby real food.  My prayers are with you.
