A healthy diet is critical to help our animals fight cancer. We can start by eliminating what cancer likes to eat: simple carbohydrates and sugars. Veterinarians like Dr. Demian Dressler, the Dog Cancer Vet, tell us that avoiding corn, wheat, potatoes and carrots – is critical to starve cancer cells of their primary fuel source.

And as holistic veterinarian Dr. Judy Morgan tells us, when you change your pet’s diet for the better you can achieve a more natural and gentle way of healing the whole pet, not just treating the symptoms of their disease. Follow these links below for details about what vets recommend to fight pet cancer through better nutrition, and how Tripawds community members have done it.

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.
