My 5yr old male boxer, Brutus, was diagnosed with Lymphoma at the end of this July. We are doing chemotherapy – adriamycin every three weeks, with our vet. I am struggling with all of the information out there about what is really best to feed a dog with lymphoma to give the best possible chance. My vet said he needed to be on high fat high protein low carb diet, and it was up to me if I wanted to feed him homemade or dog food. He did seem like he would like him to get back to normal pet food and recommended I go to a pet store and have them advise the best options for this diet, one of the brands that I could afford and looked promising was the Taste of the Wild.
Now I am concerned on giving him this food at all from things I am finding from my research or by what people are informing me. I had a conversation with Lew Olson in regards to feeding my dog Taste of the Wild along with BARF diet, where she explains that I shouldn’t feed him any commercial dog food only fresh low carb food. I am afraid to feed him the wrong thing that could interfere with his treatment and longevity,If anyone can give me expert advice or thoughts on this issue, it would be greatly appreciated.
Healthy Pet Clinics Fall 2014
The second Healthy Pet Clinic of the fall season was held at the St. Lucy’s Church gynasium on Sunday, October 19th and served more than 160 animals on a chilly autumn day. Pet owners often line up hours in advance of the scheduled opening. The Healthy Pet Clinic concept was conceived during meetings of that group of animal helping agencies. The commitment of volunteer veterinarians, technicians and animal lovers and community volunteers from across the Syracuse and Central New York area has made the clinics possible.
The Healthy Pet Clinics are administered exclusively by volunteers. They are funded by the cash donations made by the pet owners who patiently wait as long as two hours for their turn to get affordable care for their pets. Pet owners should arrive early as doors often open before noon. Pet owners need to bring documentation of financial need. Proof of address is required to show the pet owner lives in Syracuse.
Pet owners should ONLY bring animals in need of vaccinations and other care. Please do not bring your pet only for toe nail clippings or flea/tick product. Watch slideshow of images from September 2013 Healthy Pet Clinic.
