Charley’s Diet and Supplement Regimen to Fight Dog Cancer

When it comes to dog cancer diets, there are no guarantees about what can help to keep cancer away. However here in the Tripawds community you can always find great examples of how dogs are successfully fighting dog cancer with nutrition and supplements. Check out dog cancer diets here, then talk to your vet about creating a dog cancer diet that works for your Tripawd hero, like this one for Charley.

Charley’s Protocol (65 pound, 5 year old male Lab)

Today we present Charley’s dog cancer diet tips.

Tripawd Charley is a 2.5 year osteosarcoma survivor. His osteosarcoma diet and supplement protocol was recently shared in his blog “Chocolate Kisses.” His people’ choice of food and supplements is described in this post, “Charley’s Protocol (2-1/2 Year OS Warrior).” We think many dogs can benefit from this diet, so here it is in case you missed it:

Please consult with your vet prior to introducing
any new supplements into your dog or cat’s diet.

Charley’s Mom writes: Here is my disclaimer about Charley’s protocol: Every dog is different and no two cancers act exactly the same (even when comparing OS to OS, lymphoma to lymphoma, etc.).  I still tweak Charley’s protocol and nothing is written in stone.  Some pups tolerate lots of supplements without any issues and others don’t….meaning too many supplements is not always a good thing.  You have to do what works for you, your dog (or kitty), your family, your finances, etc.  :)   Most importantly is to remember to NEVER GIVE UP HOPE!!!

I add 1-2 Artemix to the artemisinin and Butyrex at least 1 of those 2-3x per week.

*Charley does not tolerate the fish oil at the 6500mg range and he gets the runs (based on the recommendations for cancer of 1000mg per 10 pounds), so he gets 4000mg/day.
