Akitas and Cancer

The major cause of death in Akitas is cancer, though that is the major cause of death in all canines of all breeds.  My latest book, Akita-Treasure of Japan, Volume II does an in-depth study of possible causes, the various types and treatments, plus recommended preventative measures.  After the book was published in 2002, I learned about Neoplasene which is not mentioned in my book.  For that reason, and because too many Akitas will be diagnosed with osteosarcoma and hemangiosarcoma, I am adding this page to the ARSA website. 

There are no guarantees with cancer but Neoplasene can offer you some hope; if you follow the program as outlined in my article, there is hope!  Please click over to my article on Neoplasene:
