Iodine Therapy

Iodine therapy is a safe and effective treatment for dogs with cancer. It works by reducing the size of tumors, preventing the spread of tumor cells, and improving your dog’s quality of life. Iodine therapy is also known as a holistic treatment because it uses natural substances rather than drugs or surgery.

Iodine is an essential mineral that helps your body produce thyroid hormones, which regulate metabolism and growth. When your dog has cancer, the disease can damage its thyroid gland and disrupt the production of these hormones. If this happens, their body will not be able to make enough iodine to produce enough thyroid hormones, which can lead to weight gain, skin problems like dryness or itching (dermatitis), hair loss (alopecia), infertility problems in females (eclampsia), heart disease in males (cardiomyopathy) and many other symptoms.
