Asparagus for cancer tumours

My dog has been diagnosed with two mast cell tumours that are malignant.My vet has him on predizone and he is doing ok ,still full of life and happy.But I was reading online about eating asparagus by humans to fight cancer tumours.Some people have reported shrinkage in tumours eating asparagus.
Has anyone ever tried feeding their dog asparagus for this purpose?
He loves the stuff and gobbles it up as I have been trying it for a few days now.

Many foods have antioxidants that may also help. Have you considered visiting a Holistic Integrative Vet who uses TCM? Not cancer but my boy is now completely off his allergy meds and we are heading into summer three of no itching thanks in part to TCM. I was not a believer before but circumstances forced us this route and now I'd try it for anything. Our new Vet also does acupuncture on him, I never knew it could target anything other than muscle aches but it seems it can and does. Good luck, hope your pup gets better.
