Dog Cancer

Sadly my 6yr old English Setter has been diognosed with rectal casinoma, he has had a CT scan which shows it has not spread anywhere else but the tumor is 12cm so they cannot operate.
Apart from straining, you would think nothing was wrong, at the moment no other outward signs.
The vet has given him Previcox as it is said in some dogs it slows down the tumor, also to give him lactolose twice a day. It's been suggested a high fibre diet, to bulk up his stools but still keep them soft and easy to pass.
Can you suggest anything else I could do to help him, eg. anything to try and slow down the growth.

It is really sad that the lovely creature is suffering this much but it is good to act according to the vet only as may other thing could hurt him.
