As every dog and cat is different, results will vary based on a number of factors including environment, severity of the condition, age, and genetics. Many dogs and cats with tumors have benefited from the addition of NuVet Plus® to their diet.


Tumors develop either on or underneath the skin or inside the body when renegade cells take over surrounding healthy cells and grow unchecked into a separate mass. The cells’ interaction with an animal’s metabolism has the potential to interfere with the animal’s biological system functions as they slowly take over organ function and metastasize elsewhere in the body. Carcinogens, such as secondhand smoke, increase an animal’s chances of developing cancer by invading tissue cells, altering genes and chromosomes and disrupting normal orderly cell growth.


While superficial tumors tend to be easily visible to the naked eye, internal tumors are much more difficult to spot. Depending upon the location of the tumor, a wide variety of symptoms may appear and are most generally defined as abnormal behavior.  More common symptoms include loss of appetite and/or energy, sores that do not heal, discharge of fluids, difficulty breathing or swallowing, and problems with bowel movements.


Canine and feline tumors are typically harmless unless they are found to be cancerous or are located in a dangerous location. As tumors can grow large in size, complications can develop if they are located near or attached to organs or blocking important passages. It is extremely important to note the placement of a tumor when determining if it will cause any further complications.

NuVet Plus

The sight or touch of a suspicious mass on or underneath a beloved dog or cat’s skin can cause a pet owner great concern. We think the worst while hoping for the best. Happily, not all growths signal the presence of a life-threatening condition, but all growths should be examined by a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Many times surgical procedures are required for treating dangerous tumors.  However, providing a nutritional supplement which contains human-grade ingredients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids herbs and more can help promote superior immune system health. NuVet Plus® contains those ingredients and can help strengthen the immune system to help prevent the development of tumor growth.

Supporting your pet’s diet with a high quality food containing essential protein will add critical nutrients to their bodies.  Equally important is that the food is low on grains like corn and wheat as well as “meat by-products”. However, even a high quality pet food alone isn’t enough.  NuVet supplements are a vital component, helping fill the nutritional gaps to keep your dog or cat healthy.   It boosts internal defenses and provides critical nutrients to the blood, bones, and skin as well as supporting the vital organs to help prevent the damaging effects of free radicals. It starts with a healthy blood stream that transports the essential nutrients throughout the body, flushing out toxins and invading substances.
NuVet Plus® is a natural supplement made from the finest human-grade ingredients, is formulated in a FDA approved laboratory used to produce human pharmaceuticals.  The use of this kind of high-tech superior quality manufacturing facility is especially uncommon in the pet industry, however NuVet Labs® knows that no greater value can be placed on our beloved four legged family members.

Not only will NuVet Plus® help fight the cause of tumors by creating a strong immune system, it is also a very complete formula that will support all your pet’s internal systems.

Beneficial Ingredients

Listed below are a few of the NuVet Plus® ingredients that may be particularly beneficial for your pet with tumors:

• Beta carotene (Vitamin A) –This valuable antioxidant synergizes with Vitamin C to support skin, immune system and mucous membrane health to protect the body against invading toxins. Together, beta carotene and Vitamin A destroy carcinogens before they can interfere with cell development and trigger tumor development.

• Brewer’s yeast – a rich source of B complex vitamins, brewer’s yeast contains the trace mineral chromium and a high quality protein that aids in tissue formation and the assimilation of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Healthy tissue prevents the development of tumors, as it resists invasion by carcinogens and other toxins that can interfere with proper cell development.

• Cat’s claw (una de gato) – an ancient herb from the Peruvian rain forest that contains bio-active compounds,  such as sterols, polyphenols, proanthocyanidins, oxindole alkaloids, quinovic acid, glycosides and triterpenes. It acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent and boosts the immune system, particularly white blood cell function. Its antioxidant properties strengthen the immune system against invasion by carcinogens,  toxins and the development of tumors.

• L-Methionine– This important amino acid contains sulfur, a free radical neutralizer that prevents cells from “going rogue,” attacking surrounding healthy cells and growing into tumors.

• Magnesium – Research shows that this trace mineral has successfully prevented certain cancers from developing.

• Papain – This substance helps the body to break down and convert protein into arginine; studies have shown that arginine inhibits the growth of breast cancer cells.

• Selenium –This trace mineral, a particularly powerful anti-oxidant when combined with Vitamin E, prevents lipid (fat) oxidation, free radical formation and the growth of certain tumors.

• Shark cartilage – Studies show that shark cartilage can shrink some cancerous tumors, especially those that fail to respond to conventional treatment as it contains a protein that interferes with development of the blood vessel networks that nourish tumors. Without nourishment from the blood stream, tumors die. The shark cartilage in NuVet Plus® is obtained from non-endangered species, and is sourced from a renewable fishing industry off the coast of New Zealand.

• Vitamin C – Vitamin C, a valuable antioxidant that fights infections, promotes cell growth, tissue repair and immune system health, maintains the structure of connective tissues and skin and strengthens the body against the effects of stress. Stress can wear an animal’s body down to the point where it can no longer resist damage from carcinogens and toxins or invasion by harmful viruses and bacteria. The addition of Vitamin C to the diet keeps tissues, skin and the immune system strong enough to resist the effects of stress. Vitamin C also protects other anti-oxidants like Vitamin E, protects brain and spinal cord cells from free radical damage and increases the body’s synthesis of interferon, a naturally-occurring anti-viral substance. This important vitamin plays a vital role in immune system health.
