Turkey Tail Mushroom

Turkey tail or Trametes versicolor is a fungus also known as Coriolus versicolor and Polyporus versicolor. It is a common polypore mushroom found throughout the world. They have been used for centuries to treat various conditions due to containing compounds beneficial to health.

Of its most impressive qualities is its ability to enhance the health of immune systems, which in turn helps suppress the growth of certain types of cancers. Some benefits includes factors such as:

  1. Antioxidants compounds
    • Help inhibit or reduce damage caused by oxidative stress.
  2. Contains immune-boosting compounds such as Krestin (PSK) and Polysaccharide Peptide (PSP)
    • Can strengthen the health of your immune system.
  3. Contains compounds such as Coriolus versicolor glucan (CVG)
    • Known as a suppressant for certain types of tumours.
    • Helps improve immune function for those suffering from certain types of cancers.
  4. Enhances the efficacy of certain cancer treatments
    • Help increase cancer-fighting cells in the immune system.
  5. Enhances gut health
    • Contains probiotics compounds that help nourish bacterias interacting with immune cells.

Supplements derived from turkey tail mushrooms are not only beneficial for human health, but also with dogs. Research showed that dogs with hemangiosarcoma treated with a compound derived from the Coriolus versicolor mushroom had the longest survival rates ever reported for dogs with the disease. This shows that the coriolus versicolor mushroom extract may be a promising supplement in maintaining immune health in dogs with cancer.

What is Hemangiosarcoma?

Hemangiosarcoma is a tumour that arises out of blood vessels. It usually shows up in organs with lots of blood supply; the spleen being the most common place for a tumour to grow. Other locations are the heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs.

The tumour(s) starts off small but over time it gets big to a point where they will break open and start bleeding. These tumours have the potential to also rupture which usually ends up being an emergency situation that requires surgery to save the dog’s life. 

The key thing is to find these tumours early and remove it before it bleeds/ruptures. The earlier you find them, better prognosis a dog may have. The prognosis given following a splenectomy is usually 1-3 months and this is exactly what I was told when my dog Max, was diagnosed with HSA.


How likely is your dog to have Hemangiosarcoma?

Certain breeds are more prone to HSA than others. To name a few included are:

  • Golden retrievers
  • German Shepards
  • Boxers
  • Labrador Retrievers

There are certain factors that can contribute to dogs developing this form of cancer, including:

  • Genetics
  • Diet
  • Over vaccination
  • Early spaying/neutering and 
  • Chemicals

Even though dogs diagnosed with HSA are given a very poor diagnosis, there is HOPE. So many dogs are now living well past just a few months by changing their diet and having alternative treatment instead of traditional chemotherapy; which can be extremely toxic to a dog.

Max’s Legacy

After my Golden Retriever Max was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma (HSA) on the spleen back in June of 2015, I started researching on natural ways to heal cancer. He was only six years old when he underwent surgery to remove the tumour that was attached to his spleen. Once he was fully healed, I wasn’t given any options other than IV chemotherapy. 

13.04.09 – 26.03.18

Survival time after diagnosis: 33 ½ Months

In my heart I knew I did not want to put him through such invasive treatment. So I chose a much gentle approach which was holistic.

Shemara Lee, Owner

He made it to 33½ months post diagnosis. Not only did he survive past the prognosis of 1-3 months, he also lived a very happy life all those months. Few of his favourite things in the world were food, going for drives in the car and playing at the park. His journey has touched many pet owners and their dogs with a similar diagnosis all around the world.
