Astragalus: It is Astragalus membranaceous, Huang qi in Chinese.
This herb has several applications in canine cancer care. First, it is an immune booster. Cancer patients often have suppressed immunity, which leads to secondary infections as well as cancer progression.
This herb seems able to stimulate B-cells preferentially. B-cells are the white blood cells that make antibodies. Although antibodies are not the primary way the body attacks cancer cells, they are useful in overall immunity. Many times infections in the body or within the tumors themselves create further sickness.
