Start Here if Your Pet Has Cancer
Where Do I Start?
When your pet has cancer, turning to traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation may not be an option. They can be financially out of reach for many, and are often not even an option at your local veterinarian's clinic, even if they may have some benefit for your pet. These kinds of cancer treatment can also a toll on the immune system, and impact overall health and quality of life. This is especially true for pets, who cannot tell us where it hurts or how they are feeling. For this reason, many people who have pets with cancer choose to try alternative cancer treatments, either alone or in conjunction with standard treatment methods through their veterinarian. These alternative treatments include therapies to support your pet's immune system, oxygen levels, and nutritional needs during this difficult time.
No matter what stage your pet is at, our first recommendation is always to get started right away on a diet change incorporating homemade meals or raw foods (BARF diet). Changing your pet's diet can help them experience some benefit through improved quality of life. Not only can the foods your pet eat and the nutrition supplements it takes make its body inhospitable to cancer growth, but they can also improve quality of life by tackling some of the hallmarks of cancer such as low energy, digestion issues, pain, weight loss, and more.
