Steven Slagle, DVM - A cat with Leukemia, an oral tumor, and posterior paralysis due to a spinal tumor was very ill and emaciated. One month after starting her on Transfer Factor Plus at 1 capsule per day, there was some regression of the oral tumor, restored appetite with some weight gain, and increased sociability. Five months later, this cat continues to improve - she regained her normal weight, her oral tumor has regressed 80%, and she has regained the use of her hind legs and tail. additional testimonials
Dr. Will Falconer, DVM - "Most of the chronic diseases we commonly see in animals (and humans) have an immune basis, e.g. diabetes, allergies, asthma, thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel diseases, repeated ear infections, cancer, etc. While they can be cured through the careful use of homeopathy, the road to cure can be a long one -- often years if the animal has had years of disease. Transfer factors can significantly shorten the course, by giving a much needed balancing effect to the immune system. If the immune system is overactive as in allergies, ear infections, asthma, diabetes, or hypothyroidism, Transfer Factor can balance this overactivity so the system is not attacking its own organs, overreacting to things that shouldn’t be perceived as a threat. If, conversely, the immune system is under-active as in mange, parasites, viral infections, or cancer, Transfer Factor Plus can clearly stimulate it to better meet the challenges it needs to be alert to." More about Dr. Falconer
Rob Robertson, M.D. - "Nearly everything that goes wrong with us and our pets, with the exception of trauma - i.e. broken bones, etc., can be traced directly to an immune system failure". Pollution, drug overload and nutrient-poor diets compromise our immune health. The key to self-healing is a strong defense system, which protects dogs and cats from everything from the flu germs to cancer cells. More than their mainstream counterparts, holistic veterinarians believe that a weak immune system plays a key role in causing disease. Drugs aren't the answer for immune enhancement. The immune system is not responsive to drugs for healing. Antibiotics fight infection, but they don't affect whatever weakened the immune system in the first place. This is why holistic veterinarians focus less on things that cause diseases and more on those that affect the body's defenses."
Dr. William Hennen, Ph.D. - "Transfer factor make up a highly concentrated immune messaging system, designed by nature to transfer immune programming from one individual to another, both human and animal alike." "Transfer factors are the most exciting discovery in immunology. As the 21st Century unfolds, transfer factor will be one of our greatest keys to health and well being." Dr. Hennen is Vice President of Research and Development at 4Life Research.
Independent Study - 4Life Transfer Factor and Transfer Factor Plus® were tested for their ability to increase Natural Killer Cell (NK) activity. The researchers used peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) isolated from human volunteers. Test results showed that 4Life Transfer Factor boosted NK cell activity 103% above normal immune response without supplementation, more than two times higher than the next highest product. The study also showed that Transfer Factor Plus increased the NK cell activity 248% above normal immune response without supplementation, or about five times higher than any of the other previously tested products.

Dr.Sam Jones, DVM - "A four month old kitten had a severe skin condition that was diagnosed as ringworm. After four months of conventional therapy, the resistant ringworm infection was not resolved. We put the kitten on Transfer Factor and within 5 days there were no apparent ringworm lesions remaining. Within a few weeks all the hair had grown back - and the now 9 month old cat has a beautiful, glossy coat. The ringworm lesions have not returned."
Paralyzed dog recoverd use of hind legs "I must say before I received the Transfer Factor I was really anxious and I would afraid that my Ridgeback dog, Linkin, would give up. As soon as the package arrived from England I started giving Linkin 2 tablets a day for the first 3 weeks.
NOTE: Many veterinarians recommend the human Transfer Factor formulas, instead of the Canine and FelineComplete formula for their sick animals. In the above testimonials, the veterinarians, medical doctor and pet owner used the human formula, Transfer Factor Classic, Adv. Formula and the Plus, to treat their animals, and not the canine or feline complete formulas. The human formula comes in a small capsule and it is easier to give a sick animal who doesn't want to eat. It is easy to shove the capsule into the throat, or empty the content into the pet's food. Some people mix the powder with a little water and squirt it into the animal's throat with an ear syringe.".Recent studies conducted by the Russian Academy of Medical Science validate these original results and report that 4Life Transfer Factor Advanced Formula boosts NK cell activity by 283 percent and 4Life Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula propels NK cell activity to a remarkable 437 percent above normal immune response! Studies also showed that 4Life Tranfer Factor Classic increased NK cell activity by 204 percent when tested at a 48-hour activation time. Test results obtained from two independent NK cell studies. Original test using 4Life Transfer Factor Classic bovine formula utilized a four-hour activation time. Secondary blind study test results, conducted by Dr. Anatoli Vorobiev, head of Immunology, at the Russian Academy of Medical Science, used 4Life Transfer Factor Advanced Formula (Transfer Factor E-XF proprietary blend of both cow colostrums and egg yolk sources) and a 48-hour activation time. Comparison of activation times demonstrated that the longer activation time (48 hours) using the 4Life Classic and Advanced Formulas promoted a significantly greater percentage increase of NK cell response. Samples were tested for maximum time of effectiveness. learn more
Immune system disorders fall into two broad categories:
Immunodeficiency - when the immune system does not recognize invaders as being undesirable and therefore does not mobilize to destroy them.Duane Townsend, MD - "Transfer Factor helps to modulate the immune system."
Autoimmunity (self-destruction) - when the immune system fails to recognize 'self' as friendly and mounts an attack on itself." Explaining Autoimmune Disease by David Isenberg, PhD and John Morrow, PhD
Baruch Rosen MD - "Transfer Factor Plus, a preparation which enhances and stimulates the body's own immune system to fight against all pathogens, viral or otherwise."
Listen to the veterinarians and doctors talk about Transfer Factor
Question:Can Transfer Factor Plus help this dog with tumors in his ear?
Dr. Falconer DVM: Yes, the Transfer Factor Plus would be helpful, and with homeopathy and that, surgery could be avoided. They can look for a qualified homeopath near them at www.theavh.org. If not, I could work with them by phone, but not for a couple of weeks. It's really amazing to me the way people lock onto the "emergency" need -- got to do this right now! And only see one option. Such is the world, I guess. Fear drives most of conventional medicine. Good luck getting a word in on natural methods. I'd dose the Transfer Factor Plus, Advanced Formula, at 2 capsules twice a day, and after a week, take it to 3 capsules twice a day. Should be not averse effects whatsoever, and could only help. They should give it a month, as this is very chronic. If they work with a homeopath, it'll be somewhat faster. And they'll learn not to vaccinate this poor devil, which may have a big role in causing these polyps. Will Falconer, DVM
Question: What do you recommend for a 3 year old dog with advanced oteosarcoma? (bone cancer)
Dr. Falconer DVM: "The products I'd recommend for his situation are the following: Transfer Factor animal stress pack, (can only be used for up to 14 days), Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula and Choice Prime. The regimen for him would be to start the Stress Pack according to label instructions, and, after a few days on this, I'd add in the TF Plus at 2 twice a day. The Choice Prime is a very potent antioxidant that's had some anticancer effects. Dose him at 1 twice a day, right from the beginning, and stay with that dose. Should also help with pain"
Deadly, Contagious Dog Flu Virus
Question: Can Transfer Factor Plus offer an effective means of staving off the Canine Flu disease?
Dr. Falconer DVM: Absolutely! If the immune system is primed, it doesn't matter what one is exposed to in terms of infectious agents. They will be seen as foreigners. Best strategy is to prime the immune system *beforehand* though -- much less effect trying to treat ones already ill. To treat diarrhea, whether it's caused by parvo, this so-called flu, e.coli, or whatever, the Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula shines. Pediatrician Dr. Markowitz M.D., told how it saved children with acute diarrhea who were very seriously ill with the Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula. This is off label use, but illustrates the point. Anyone facing infectious diarrhea in any species should be armed with this! Can't be overemphasized -- this will save lives.
Question: My rabbit had uterine cancer removed 2 years ago. Was ok for 2 years. And recently had another tumor removed which had broken through the skin. The vet told me he had the tumor tested, and that the cancer had reached the outer edges. And so has probably begun to form in other areas, of the rabbits body. So this seems like the best time. To try Transfer Factor. But- rabbits are really delicate digestive systems. What is your Opinion on this?
Dr. Falconer DVM: You are very right about this species having it's digestive issues. We learned that antibiotics can really harm these creatures. The beauty of the Transfer Factor products is that they do not upset balance anywhere in the body, but greatly aid in the restoration of same, especially in the immune system. The safest bet would be to start with the plain Transfer Factor Advanced Formula, which is only the colostrum and egg yolk derived Transfer Factor. Once on that for a couple of weeks, say at 1 cap twice a day, I wouldn't hesitate to add some of the Transfer Factor Plus Adv Formula to the equation, say at one cap per day. If that's well tolerated, I might consider giving 1twice a day after a couple of weeks, in addition to the Transfer Factor Advanced at the same dose.

Q & A about Transfer Factor
When Dr. Burlingame started using Transfer Factor and Transfer Factor Plus in his veterinary practice, he didn’t always get the results he hoped for. Since then, he says, he’s discovered that for maximum benefit, Transfer Factor needs to be started early and at high enough doses. “It’s a numbers game when you’re dealing with bacteria and viruses,” he says. It is crucial to get high enough numbers of transfer factors into the system to combat the high levels of bacteria or viruses. Recently, Dr. Burlingame had a four-month-old puppy come into to his clinic. The puppy had bloody diarrhea and all the symptoms of parvovirus. In addition to the typical antibiotics, antiemetics, and IV fluids, he gave the puppy 1,400 mgs per day of Transfer Factor (supplement facts). The puppy was home in three days. “I wish I had this a long time ago,” he says. According to Dr. Burlingame, Transfer Factor usually takes about 48 to 72 hours to educate the immune system. He looks for a regression in symptoms, particularly in the case of infections, within the first 48 to 72 hours. He says he will often see an improvement or increase in white blood cell counts in that time frame as well. And, overall, the patient will begin to feel and therefore act better."
Directions for giving the human formula Transfer Factor to animals, as suggested by the 4Life Company:
Transfer Factor Classic or Advanced Formula ------------Dr. Burlingame's comment on dosage--------Dosage for Caged Birds
- Small Animals 0-30 lb. One quarter to one capsule daily (3 to 6 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
- 30-60 lb. One capsule 2x daily. (3 to 6 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
- 60 lb -up One capsule 3x daily (6 to 9 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
- Large Animals One capsule 3x daily. (6 to 12 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
Transfer Factor Advanced Formula Plus
Dosage for Caged Birds-- (as suggested by Dr. Falconer DVM ) "Use Transfer Factor animal stress pack. Mix 1 level tsp./ 2 oz. (5T.) water. Give as drinking water. For larger amounts (pigeons, poultry, etc.) mix 1 to 2 oz. (1/2 to 1 packet) Stress Pack with 1 gallon of drinking water. Change water daily and give 7-14 days. This would be useful in any infectious diseases and is intended for use in short term (max 14 days) only. I also use the animal stress pack when I want to get high levels of the TF in someone right away. It's very soluble and tasty in this form. For longer term use, say in liver disease or tumors, I'd graduate to the TF Plus Feline Complete, guestimating the dosage based on bodyweight from the cat dose. This is a powdered form with a very good balance of added nutrients that cats readily accept. I'd guess it could be top dressed on some moist bird food like fruit."
- Small Animals: 1-40 lb. One quarter to one capsule daily (4 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
- 40-60 lb: . Two capsules a day. (4 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
- 60 lb.-up: Three capsules daily. (4 to 6 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
- Large Animals: Two capsules 2 to 3x daily (6 to 12 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
These products have absolutely no toxicity or side effects even at mega doses. You may increase the amounts even further to achieve the desired level of immune efficiency.
Note: Some veterinarians start animals on a small amount of Transfer Factor Plus for 3 consecutive days and increase the dose gradually. The content of the capsule can be mixed with pet food or treats (sardines, cheese, etc.) Some pet owners find it easier to shove a capsule in the pet's throat or to mix the content in a little broth and use a syringe to inject the product into the animal's mouth. Although Transfer Factor and Transfer Factor Plus are best given throughout the day, satisfactory results have been obtained by giving the dose once a day. The 4Life company recommends to double or triple these amounts if the animal is ill in order to increase the efficiency of the immune system further. There is no report of overdosing on TF or TF Plus even when consuming massive amounts.
These products have absolutely no toxicity or side effects even at mega doses. You may increase the amounts even further to achieve the desired level of immune efficiency.

Dr. Will Falconer, D.V.M. Certified Veterinary Homeopath, Alternatives for Animal Health, Austin, Texas.
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, University of Missouri 1980. Practice followed, with the first seven years providing conventional medical and surgical care to creatures large and small. Retraining in methods natural included certification in acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, followed by certification as a Veterinary Homeopath by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy. Dr. Falconer has since 1992 dedicated his practice to classical homeopathy, with animal patients around the globe. Dr Falconer also uses Transfer Factor in his practice.
As a Certified Veterinary Homeopath, my practice is dedicated to curing my patients gently, quickly, and permanently, by following clearly comprehensible principals of treatment. I’m very particular about what I will use besides homeopathic remedies, as other treatments, like strong herbs or acupuncture, can interfere with the action of remedies, and spoil the outcome for my patients. So, it was very exciting to learn about these natural, colostrum-derived supplements that actually transfer intelligence from one immune system to another, even across species lines. What it means is that I have a very potent yet gentle means to help my patients hasten their recovery from the chronic diseases so prevalent in practice today.
The philosophy of Alternatives for Animal Health is that we work with your animal’s innate healing abilities to achieve an optimal state of health. This is best accomplished by the smooth working together of doctor, care giver, and animal. The doctor depends on you the care giver to carefully watch and report on symptoms. He will use the information you provide to carefully guide the course of homeopathic care for your individual animal. As no two animals are exactly alike, even if they have the same diagnosis, we will focus on how your individual animal manifests illness and health. This uniqueness will guide the treatment according to the clear principals of classical homeopathy.
I am very excited to have such a subtle, gentle, yet potent technology as transfer factors to hasten my patients’ return to full health. I recommend the Transfer Factor products for any animal (or their human) who faces immune system challenges. My plan is to regularly publish cases here that show the effects of transfer factor therapy, and keep the community of animal caretakers apprised of my results with these products. I am especially interested in animals with cancer who have not had surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. As much of my practice is long distance, feel free to contact me if you are interested in this approach for your animal.

The Cats are Talking... About Chronic Disease
by Will Falconer, DVM, Certified Veterinary Homeopath
Note: This article not meant to be a "feline" article per se. At first glance, it may seem to be that, but it's in fact more of an exposure of modern medicine, veterinary as well as human.
Having watched animals and their illnesses for the last twenty-odd years of practice, I am seeing a disturbing trend. Have you noticed it, too? When illness strikes our pets, it is long term, chronic, and difficult to cure. The best that conventional medicine seems able to do is to (barely or briefly) control symptoms, but these poor creatures never get back to a normal, enthusiastic level of health. We've all seen these animals: they are allergic to something and itch a lot; they have thyroid problems and lose their hair or their body weight (depending on whether they have too little or too much thyroid function); they have stiffness and pain in their joints; or their teeth get filthy regularly, and they don't stay clean with our best efforts at dental hygiene. Why is this becoming so common? When I look at it carefully, it's apparent that we are not raising healthy pets. Oh, we try, we follow the veterinary line that says we should vaccinate every one every year, we should feed only one kind of food from a bag or can, we should brush teeth regularly, control fleas with the latest chemicals, but where is this getting us and our four-footed companions? The cats are telling a story about this that I want to share with you.
Back twenty some years ago, dogs were the most popular pet in America. Cats were less popular, and, therefore, had less likelihood of being brought to the vet. As the years went on, more people lived in smaller spaces, led busier lives, and had less time to care for a dog, but wanted that special companionship that a pet can bring, so cats grew in popularity, until, by the mid-80's, they overtook dogs in numbers owned per capita. And where did the conscientious pet owners get their advice on raising the healthiest cats they could? From their local veterinarian, of course. What was the definition of giving the best care? Vaccinating annually, feeding Science Diet, brushing teeth, treating for fleas, etc. Just like it had been for years before with the canine population.
Interestingly enough, the diseases that are quite common in cats now were virtually unknown in the late 70's when I was in veterinary school. We had two donated diabetic beagle siblings who lived in the hospital and taught us about this strange disease. It was something we never saw in cats, and it was pretty uncommon in dogs for that matter. We learned of hypothyroidism from several canine cases, but cats didn't have thyroid problems, and hyperthyroidism was not in the books or the exam rooms. We saw horrible skin allergies in dogs, with crusts and scabs and red feet and unending itchiness, but we didn't see cats with this disease, either.
Well, if you've been observant in recent years, you know that these chronic diseases are fairly commonplace now in the feline population. As are heartworm (again, a dog disease originally), asthma, kidney failure, inflammatory bowel disease, dental calculus and decay, heart disease, and cancer. Why? Could it be that the cat is now following the same road that the dog has gone down? I think so, and what's more, I think we need to redefine what is the best way to raise a healthy animal.
More veterinary care in the usual preventative way has backfired, and I think we are actually causing these chronic diseases to become more prevalent. While prevention is still most important, it's not best done by annual vaccines, toxic food, and topical flea poisons that warn us not to get them on our skin.
And guess what? Wild cats like the lynx and bobcat are not experiencing these chronic degenerative diseases. Wolves don't die of heartworm disease or have dirty teeth. And nobody is dropping them heartworm pills monthly nor brushing their teeth. Might we do better to follow their example (fresh, healthy food, no/minimal vaccines, no toxic chemicals)? I think we will all be happier and see less disease in all species when we do. I know this approach works. Experience has borne it out in daily practice on hundreds of animals. Question the norm! Don't raise an average animal in the common way. The cats are talking. Are you listening?
Mange - Many normal dogs carry the mange parasite. Holistic veterinarians believe that it becomes a problem and spreads through the skin when there are immune problems, inherited skin defects or illness for other reasons. Holistic treatments aim to improve the general health, particularly the immune system, and to homeopathically treat the inherited factors.
Dr. Will Falconer DVM - "Demodectic mange mites are common flora in man and animals. Reread that if you think this is a typo, because it’s a fact: we all have demodectic mites as residents on our skin. Why aren’t we all itchy and broken out with eruptions? Only one reason: the immune system keeps these parasites in check. So, when a dog is diagnosed with demodectic mange, and he’s got crusty patches around his face or toes or all over, what that means, first and foremost, is that his immune system needs help! Unfortunately, the common treatment is to dip the affected dogs in very toxic chemicals to kill the mites. So toxic, in fact, that the personnel dipping the dog wear rubber gloves and aprons! This has never made sense to me, as we know poisons have a clearly detrimental effect on the immune system. Wouldn’t it make more sense to strengthen the immune system and thereby get the normal flora of mites back in control? It can be done, and Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula would be the best course, along with Canine Complete. For the average 40 - 60 lb dog, I’d start with Animal Stress Pack at recommended doses for two weeks. Then, follow this with Canine Complete at label doses and add the Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula at two capsules twice a day. To discourage mites topically, paint on lavender essential oil, diluted 1:10 with almond oil. This can be applied twice a day. Be sure to avoid the eyes, however. You’ll need to give this regimen time, from at least a few weeks to a few months. And, again, don’t short change nutrition, avoid vaccines, and work with your homeopathic veterinarian to improve health and cure the underlying illness that allowed the immune system to get so sluggish."
