PET CANCER DIET TIPS
A healthy diet is critical for animals with cancer. According to the acclaimed dog cancer vet Dr. Demian Dressler, “cancers prefer simple carbohydrates as their main fuel source.” Avoiding these ingredients – like corn, wheat, potatoes and carrots – is critical. Dog cancer diets cost about the same as commercial food, and even dogs with food allergies can benefit. Follow these links below for details about how to fight canine cancer through better nutrition. Additional helpful canine diet information is available from Aloha Medicinals, the makers of K9 Immunity.

CAT AND DOG DIET TIPS FOR BETTER HEALTH
Before the rise of commercial pet food in the 1960s, dogs and cats dined on table scraps. As a result, they rarely went to the vet, and lived healthier lives with less disease. Whether your dog or cat is disease-free or fighting something besides cancer, you can help improve their health through better food ingredients.
