Our Own Cat's Essiac Miracle: Maggie is Well

From Stage 4 Cancer to a Perfectly Healthy Cat

As luck would have it, a couple of years ago we found ourselves needing to use our own product on Maggie, our beloved 8 year old cat. She is normally full of life and vigor, but she hadn't been acting herself and was having trouble keeping food down. So, we brought her to the vet, as you do. Unfortunately, the news was unexpected and devestating.

She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and was given only 1-2 months to live - if she took prednolosone. If she didn't take the medication she was given less than that. We were heartbroken. Chemo was offered but the vet said that would only give us about 6 months if we were lucky, and we didn't want to put her through that.

Our Journey Began

We started her on the prednolosone right away as we were told that would help keep her comfortable and give us enough time to say goodbye. We immediately began giving her Essiac Tea twice per day. We followed the dosing chart by weight that is here. Because she's little, she gets only 7 mL twice a day.

We first tried giving her Essiac in broth. It took a bit of experimenting, but she preferred the tuna from Wild Planet that we first got at Whole Foods. That was the only broth that got her to take the Essiac consistently. We added the broth from one packet to the 7 mL of Essiac. We ate a lot of tuna at that time. 😂

Keep in mind, with pets you don't need to give them the sediment in the Essiac. You can just give the tea, so don't shake or stir the serving because you can allow the herbs to float to the bottom and not use them when it's for cats or dogs.

We Changed Course to Continue to Administer Essiac to Our Cat

After awhile, she lost interest in the broth. We changed gears and began giving her Essiac by syringe. At first it seemed easier to do this with two people, but now we have developed our technique to where we can easily do it with one person. We swadle her with a big towel and have the syringe at the ready. Once she is contained, we tilt her head back a little bit (don't overtilt) and slowly pour the tea in. If she is resistent to swallowing that day, stroking her throat helps. It's such a routine now for us that she doesn't run away after we have given it to her. She doesn't love it, but she doesn't give us trouble either.

A year after her cancer diagnosis we brought her back to the vet for a check up. The vet declared there was no sign of cancer at all! Prior to the cancer diagnosis Maggie had been having trouble keeping food down and had become listless. She has kept every speck of food down since we started her on the prednolosone as well as the Essiac. We have moved down to one serving of Essiac per day now that she is cancer free and showng no signs of distress.

Looking to the Future with Our Girl

We are meeting with the vet again this month and will consider taking her off the prednolosone if the vet feels that is warrented. We were told it was OK to leave her on it for life, but we would prefer to keep her medication free moving forward if possible.

We will continue providing Essiac Tea to her. We call her our miracle kitty, even though this outcome to be honest is expected by us with what we have seen with Essiac Tea. We are greatful for every extra day we have had with her. We have confidence that the Essiac Tea was what made the difference for her. The doctor said she would have only a 1% chance of living more than 1-2 months even with the prednolosone. Yet, it's already been 8 months and she is happy and healthy and still here 😊 Our Maggie has defeated the odds, and we hope your pet is next!

  • is it worth getting one’s pet on the tea just as a preventative just like human animals?
    Just received my tea today to help my mum get rid of her colon cancer – she is 86 and very frail so cannot have surgery. I’m planning on putting the whole family on it including the cat if she is agreeable. Wish I had known about this tea when my dad was diagnosed.
