Ingredients and side effects of life gold for cancer Support
Pet Wellbeing Life Gold “Claims” to cure cancer or at least improve your dog’s life style for its remaining time. When it comes to cancer, most dog owners are cautious. The only option which seems to be available is chemotherapy or surgery, both very expensive and results are not guaranteed. Dogs usually come across cancer at an older age. Surgery or chemotherapy decreases the dogs health rapidly.
Natural Remedies may seem to be a great option but with all the news on most herbal remedies termed as “snake oil” we tried to find out if there was any reality to it. The ingredients of Life Gold were researched, interestingly by the best research institutes in the USA and worldwide.
