was too w to start, likely due to all those supplements say her doctors. >> she didn't realize it was important for me to know what ss was taking while she was on chemotherapy if it wasn't a prescription medication. >> it took weeks withtht supplements before her white count was high enough to begg the chemo. new research indicates it's becoming more common. >> the biggest concern many supplements can interfere with cancer drugs, lessening their effectiveness or making them more toxic and many doctors don't know their patients are taking those supplements. echinacea and cava can impact blood pressure drugs. others can interfere with radiation meds. >> the biggest problem is that there are activity ingredients in dietary supplements that act the same way as medications do in the body. >> many want the fda to regulate supplements. >> just because something is natural doesn't mean that it's safe. >> the supplement industry
7:14 am
said it's important patients tell their doctors what they're taking. sheli now takes just six. >> i believe in taking these vitamin supplements because i wanted to do anything that i could to beat cancer. >> the good news, today sheli learned she's cancer free. tom costello, nbc news, bosn. time right now 7:15. still ahead, pope francis is expanding his presence on social media. ee where you can now follow the pontiff. plus all you pet parents out there, do you know what to do if your furry friend gets into a sticky situation? our resident veterinarian will
7:15 am
7:16 am
our all right. wcome back. all pet owners know that our four legged friends can sometimes get into a bit of trouble when we are not looking, maybe more than a bat, and it's up to us to make sure we can
7:17 am
get them to a vet. if you don't have a first aid kit to your pet it's a good idea to start making one. this doctor will show us must have items that every pet first aid kit should have. >> we have a lot of stuff. let's kick off with peroxide. now, the thing with peroxide you don't want tose it on open wounds although it can cleanse wounds it will also kill living tissue. the first place people go for wound care but the last thing you should be using. >> okay. >> this is to be used to induce vomiting in the case of a dog or cat eating muhammad case or something mocks i'm like chocolate or race ins this will help them bring it back. the key is to not use this with chemical ingestion, times chemicals will burn on the way up and way down.
7:18 am
pounds, you can use a needle syringe or tkey baster for a big dod. >> talking about vomiting, first aid is pretty gross so the first thing i always go for is have a towel handy and some gloves to keep yourself clean. the nice thing about a towel is you can also use it to wrap up a frightened patient like i have done with our kitty, that way they feel safe and keeps you safe when you'qe handling them. >> good idea, have the towel handy. >> talking about first aid, first thing, too, to look at is some electrolyte replacement, unflavored pedialyte very important to have in your first aid kid k.ity. >> for animals or -- >> this is regular pedialyte but the key is unflavored, xyletol in the flavored ones are hazardous to pets.
7:19 am
that's nice to have around. >> the next thing to talk about is bleeding emergencies, cats can cut themselves, get a nail caught in something, cut their pads. there's always a good idea to have quick stop on hand. this is available from pet stores, veterinarians, it's a little powder you put on a wound. if you don't have this corn starch will work, which is nice. for bigger wounds there's something called quick stop, this is used by law enforcement, this is very handy for bigger wounds, obviously if it's something that serious you want to get your pet to a vet as soon as possible. >> this is just stuff if you are home and can't get them at home. >> it buys you time, makes my job easier because you are already put literally a band-aid on it. >> that brings us on to wound care. n't use peroxide, iodine is a great choce for wound care, dilute this, it will keep things
7:20 am
care alleyey karo syrup, with ose little dogs that get out of steam, a dab of this on their tongue will get them going go en. >> let's say we do all this, take them to a vet, follow-ups, what about that? >> absolutely. this is all just to buy you time. most important thing is to havee directions printed out to your nearest vet, , earest pet emergency clinic, but the idea there is literally anything you do along these lines helps me make your pet tter. >> of course your pet and family will also be safe and happy. if you would like more information about first aid for your pets head to our nbc 6 6 news and weather app or nbc6.com. you can search all about an mall section so you can send drt cupkey a message. >> fantastic. the most modern pope yet, pope francis has joined

sleen ma gomez currently the most followed perern on the social network may have some competition. he made his instagram debut yesterday with a photo of him kneeling in prayer. the caption said pray for me in nine languages.. the vatican said the instagram account will allow people to share the pope's jend urs and tenderness and mercy. >> always need to have an inspirational message from the popoiff. right now i think i will follow him. i will wait until the commercial break. 7:22 is the time. still ahead, after nearly a ceceury a u.s. sitting president will step foot on the island of cuba today. find out what are the next steps for washington after this historic visit when we go live with chuck todd next. and ultra fest coming to an
7:22 am
7:23 am
7:24 am
hear what locals have to welco back. decision 2016 three of the candidates trying t# win their party's nomination are hitting the campaign trail out west. is all comes as republicans aim to stop donald trump from becoming the party's nominee. "meet thpress" moderator chuck todd is tracking the latest in the race for the white house and joins us from washington, d.c. goomorning to you. >> good morning. >> is there still time for there to be a unified strategy to stop trump? >> there's still time. they just haven't found that unified strategy. there's still a little discomfort in washington in uniting behind ted cruz. i think if there weren't hesitance about cruz and his electability you would see a rush of money and of endorsements going ted cruz's way but the hesitance about cruz
7:25 am
the talk of stopping him at the convention, it's still possible, there's enough states on the calendar that you defeat trump in enough of these states you can keep him short of majority of delegates, but again, cruz and kich they don't appear to be willing to worktogether to either divide up the states or have one back down. they're both, for instance, campaigning in utah and the irony there is in they hold the winner under 50% the may actually hand delegates to trump rather than deny him. the motivation is there, the strategy isn't, sharon. >> and a news report from earlier this week suggested that president obama thinks the democratic party should unify hind hillary clinton. so willll we see a more active role from mr. obama in the 2016 race and if we do whaha might that look like? >> right. well, look, i thihi number one nobody motivates him likeonald
7:26 am
so i think trump's candidacy and his rise and especially the way some repeplicans pin the blame of the rise of trump on president obama, that motivates him to get more involved than ever. that's one. second, i ththk -- i wouldn't be surprised if he comes out publicly for secretary clinton perhaps even before the end of the month. i think that there is now a movement to expedite the unification process onn the democratic side. >> finally as you know president obama will make a mistst rick visit to cuba today, a lot of folks here very important in miami. what can we expect from washington as the white house moving forward to normalizing relations with the communist nation? >> well, we'll see. i mean, i think that there's still some resistance on capitol hill to pulling back the embargo, you know, as you know, there's still many parts of the embargo that are codified into law and it would take an act of congress in order to undo them and i think what the president
7:27 am
the diplomatic status with cuba, doing everythinin he can within his executive authority to do this that his visit reinforces and normalizes this idea for the country to sort of isolate the movement, the group of republicans who don't want to see a change in policy. we'll see. i think there's still enough resistance that you won't see formal action anytime soon. but i think the president could go a long way if his visisi ends up helping to get some political prisoners freed. so far that hasn't happened. >> definitely here in south florida a lot of mixed reaction coming from the cuban american community. we definitely be watching. as always thank you for joining us this morning, chuck. >> we will be sure to tune in later this morning. fresh off his win in ohio governor john kasich will join chuck todd on "meet the press." at 10:00 a.m. time right now 7:29. more news ahead.
