Casey’s Canine Cancer Nutrition Plan

There are many ways to support this community, but the best is to share information you believe others might find helpful. That’s why we are happy to share the following canine cancer nutrition plan from Tripawds member ladymayin

Casey is a 9 yr old mixed breed (mom was a beagle) who has ostersarcoma. His amputation was on June 23, 2009. Now he has 2 lung tumors diagnosed in August, 2010. Prognosis was 3-5 mos, but guess what?? He’s still hiking 2 miles daily!


Chicken or beef (cooked) with variety of vegetables (broccoli, peas, carrots, green beans). He likes extra chicken fat or butter added to his meal.


Dr Pitcairns “healthy powder” minus the nutritional yeast, with added B-Complex. (I always feel like yeast encourages tumor growth?) Flax seed meal; I don’t use flax oil because it spoils too quickly.

Absolutely no grains. Dr.Pitcairn does not believe grains encourage tumors but I disagree. Although tumors have been found in Caseys lungs, he enjoys daily hikes, eats well, and seems to enjoy life.

Dr. Pitcairn’s Healthy Powder Recipe

From Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats. (Read the Tripawds book review.)

  1. Way to go Casey for still hiking TWO MILES a day! WOW!!

    Thanks for sharing your nutrition information! I have Dr. Pitcairn’s book and have always thought his recipes were wicked heavy on grains..(and that was before the “C” word arrived in this household!)
