What is Modified Citrus Pectin?
Pectin is a soluble fiber found in large concentration in the peel and pulp of citrus fruits and apples. It is widely used as a thickening or gelling agent in jams, marmalades, jellies and preserves.

Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is pectin derived from citrus fruit peels and pulps that has been modified by PH, temperature and enzymatic process. This modification breaks down the long carbohydrate chains of pectin into shorter, non-branched chains that dissolve easily in water. MCP is better absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body. As a result, MCP is a potentially powerful, natural cancer fighter.

Dog Cancer Supplement: Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) & Inositol

What are IP6 and Inositol?
Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) is a naturally occurring polyphosphorylated carbohydrate and antioxidant found in high fiber foods such as legumes, wheat bran/germ, whole kernel corn, brown rice and soy. IP6, also present in small amounts in mammalian cells, plays an important role in regulating vital cellular functions.

Inositol is a nutrient with moderate anti cancer properties. The anti cancer effect of IP6 is enhanced with the addition of inositol.

Osteosarcoma In Dogs Symptoms

Osteosarcoma accounts for more than 85% of all bone tumors in dogs. It is the most common type of primary bone tumors that is highly malignant and metastatic. This type of tumor causes destruction to the bone and tends to spread to other organs.

Osteosarcoma in dogs can affect:
- appendicular skeleton (limbs)
- axial skeleton (skull, ribs, pelvis, spine)

Most canine osteosarcoma develops in the appendicular skeleton. Appendicular osteosarcoma is 2 times more likely to occur in the forelimbs than the hind limbs.

Tumor location on forelimbs: distal radius (adjacent to the carpal or wrist joint) and proximal humerus (adjacent to the shoulder joint)
Tumor location on hind limbs: distal femur (lower part of thigh bone) and proximal tibia (upper part of shin bone)
