Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is an interesting substance extracted from citrus. Dr. Dressler recommends it to reduce metastasis and local invasion. It’s easy to add to food, and because pectin is a natural thickener that has no flavor, it’s very palatable for dogs.
NOW Foods is a trusted brand.
Please read more about modified citrus pectin in chapter 13 of The Dog Cancer Survival Guide, and check with your own veterinarian about its use in your dog’s specific case.

- HEALTHY CELL GROWTH AND REPRODUCTION*: A patented, low molecular weight citrus pectin that can pass through the intestinal barrier so it can work systemically.*
