When it comes to treating cancer, chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are typically recommended either alone or in combination. Veterinary medicine has made some recent strides in other treatments, such as immunotherapy or antibody therapy, but these are less prevalent than the first line treatments.
The key in any cancer therapy needs to start with nutritional requirements and feeding your pet a cancer fighting diet can be an important component of treatment. The diet should have small amounts of complex carbohydrates, minimal quantities of rapidly absorbed simple sugars, high quality but modest amounts of digestible proteins, high amounts of unsaturated fats, and omega-3/DHA essential fatty acids. That is why we recommend the following whole food nutritional supplements to help support your caner patient's nutritional needs.
