Are you that unfortunate dog owner who is looking for the last hope of keeping your pet alive from cancer? I know this might sound weird, but yes, to an extent you can treat cancer in dogs with simple home remedies. My sister’s Golden Retriever – Cooper had cancer. At first she couldn’t find the problem, unless she started noticing that her Cooper began to lose weight instantly. He was found weak and would be seen lying on the mat all time. Being a hardcore natural remedy lover, my sister always tried for home remedies to cure cancer in Cooper. But what surprised me and her was the comeback of Cooper after we started feeding him with fresh vegetables and raw meat. We initially had a doubt whether he will eat these veggies, but to our surprise, I guess he loved it and now, he happily plays around the home with my nephew.
Generally people have a misconception that there is no natural means to cure cancer from dogs. I know some dog owners – (my friends)who take their pet to the doctor for chemotherapy, radiation and other natural medications. Do you know by taking chemotherapy, your dog will have to bear immense pain? Why do you want him to struggle so badly? They believe that herbal supplements and antioxidants can bring the results positive. I do agree that certain herbal supplements and antioxidants have helped many pet owners to fight cancer. But the point is not in taking medications to fight cancer, but it lies in taking natural measures to heal the dog’s failing immune system.
And when it comes to natural remedies for dog cancer, it is recommended that you go for dietary measures to keep your dog’s immune system strong and healthy. If your dog has been diagnosed with cancer, you better feed him on a special diet. A low carb-diet, high in protein can be beneficial for your dog. This means you just have to feed him with fresh vegetables and raw meats, along with low-fat dairy products. I know this might not sound tasty for your pet, but this will surely make him stronger and fight against cancer cells.

Recipe with few basic items
If your dog is on his/her 2nd or 3rd stage cancer, feed him with raw meats and vegetables because these foods have more nutrients than processed dog foods. Vegetables like kale, zucchini, potatoes, yams and cauliflower are few among them. Salmon oil or cod liver oil can be added to your dog food as they are high in omega 3 vitamins. Eggs and low-fat dairy are excellent choices you can add to any dog food recipe because they supply protein and Vitamin D.
Recipe with your dog’s favorite treats
Give your dog special treats like cheese chunks, beef jerky and hard-boiled eggs. Steak chunks or other meats can also benefit your dog in fighting cancer. Make small balls of rice with chopped vegetables and meat for a quick snack.
Being a dog owner, it is very important that you focus on your pooch’s diet necessities. Dogs with cancer need to get essential nutrients like omega 3 fatty acids and CO-Q10. Minerals like selenium and magnesium can be given in nutritional supplements or liquid vitamins. Essiac tea is also said to keep your dog’s immune system strong and healthy. Give this to your dog twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
Now that you have seen all these food recipes to save your dog from cancer, start feeding your dog right now. Its better to be early than late. Care him like he want to be cared for, he will thank you for rest of his life.
