Silke’s Story

Dr. Falck’s favorite cancer patient is Silke (pronounced Silka), an 11-year-old spayed German Shepherd Dog who had frequent urinary tract infections. “In June 2004, we did an ultrasound,” she says, “and we saw a large inoperable bladder mass. Silke had excellent care and was on a raw diet. However, she overweight which is a risk factor for bladder cancer. In addition, she had been treated with a variety of chemi- cals for tick control, which probably contributed to weakening her immune system.” For a short time, Silke received Piroxicam, a conventional medication for blad- der cancer, but that was discontinued because of its side effects. Dr. Falck, who studied Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine at the Chi Institute, put Silke on a regimen of Chinese herbs, nutritional supplements, im- mune-boosting products, and antioxidants, all of which Silke’s owner delivered in her favorite food, liverwurst. “Seven months later we repeated the ultra- sound,” says Dr. Falck, “and the mass was almost completely invisible. Silke is now 12 years old and doing very well.”
