Providing good nutrition is a proactive way to help your dog maintain a strong immune system. It’s certainly no guarantee he or she will not get cancer, but it helps in the fight. And maintaining good nutrition while a dog is fighting cancer will help in the battle against the disease.
We found this article by Simi (it’s long but worth the read) that might help you in deciding to broaden your dog’s diet, and what you’d be comfortable adding. As with everything The Puppy Up Foundation publishes, we encourage you to do your own research and draw your own conclusions. Every dog’s digestive system is different, and different dogs will respond differently to each item below. For example, collies are known to have trouble digesting some foods, like rice, so that might be something you’d not want to add to their food.
Dogs are mans’ best friend. They are loyal, loving and provide us with endless amounts of entertaining stories. While your dog may be only a part of your life, to them you are everything. You are their entire world. It is, therefore, of the utmost importance to ensure the health and safety of your furry friend.
The pet food supermarket aisle is brimming with numerous brands of dog food, each claiming to be the healthiest option for your pooch. This may very well be the case, but there is a growing number of people who are opting out of feeding their dogs pellets.
These pellets are highly processed and could be the cause of obesity and cancer in your dog. Dog food is legally allowed to have something called 4-D meat in it. This is meat which has been taken from dead, diseased or even disabled animals.
