Dog Cancer: Holistic Pet Care and Homemade Diets Can Help

DANA POINT, Calif. – Aug. 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — ‘Dogs with cancer can be helped using holistic pet care,’ says Susan B. Davis, veterinary nutritionist for Ask Ariel Your Pet Nutritionist. Diet and nutritional supplements can help boost a dog’s immune system, increase longevity and overall quality of life. Dogs and cats with cancer need a diet that is high in quality protein, low in carbohydrates and rich in enzymes and Omega 3 fatty acids. However, depending upon the type of dog cancer, e.g. canine liver cancer and/or other complications such as canine kidney disease, a high protein diet may not be appropriate. Thus, a customized homemade diet for dogs is often required.
