When pets get cancer, it’s especially important to make sure they get proper nutrition. Fighting cancer takes a lot out of anyone, and you can help them in their fight by ensuring your pet gets only the best, nutrient-packed food possible.
It’s best to consult with your vet about changes to your pet’s diet while it is undergoing cancer. Your vet will likely have advice personalized to your pet’s particular situation, and you should always keep them informed of any diet changes during this time so they can monitor for adverse reactions. Some dogs that have pancreas, liver, kidney, or spleen issues, for example, might not benefit from a high fat, high protein diet.
But there are some foods that, in general, are almost always going to be a nutritional win for your pet. Here’s ten foods that are often recommended to feed to your pet as they battle cancer.
Fresh or frozen, blueberries are an excellent way to add more antioxidants to your pet’s diet. They’re also full of fiber, manganese, and vitamins C and E. Be sure to introduce them gradually, however, because too much too fast can lead to stomach upset.
