Cancer is an extremely dangerous and deadly disease that affects many people and their pets. As the disease continues to claim lives, researchers and doctors are always looking for new treatments and cures. One treatment that has become a hot topic is a dog dewormer for cancer. Dewormers are commonly used in veterinary medicine to treat intestinal parasites in dogs and cats. However, anecdotal evidence suggests that this drug can also fight and potentially even cure cancer in humans.
A recent video circulating on social media platforms has been drawing a lot of attention to the alleged cancer-fighting power of fenbendazole, which is sold under the brand Panacur C as a dog dewormer. In the video, a veterinarian named Andrew Jones claims that he has cured a lung cancer patient by administering fenbendazole. The videos have been shared and viewed millions of times on Facebook and TikTok.
According to Jones, the patient in question was diagnosed with small-cell lung cancer and given only a short time to live. Jones then administered fenbendazole to the patient and the cancer went into remission within months, he says.
While some peer-reviewed studies suggest that fenbendazole may have potential to be used as a human cancer treatment, the FDA has stated that it needs more research before it could be approved for this use. In addition, the American College of Oncology has cited that there is insufficient evidence for the use of this drug in treating cancer in humans.
