Cancer can strike anyone indiscriminately, both humans and pets.
Like humans, prevention is the best medicine and food plays a very important role.
Mast Cell Tumors: Very common in older and mixed breeds, this form of cancer affects areas of the body with high levels of enzymes and histamine, such as the skin, intestines, and respiratory system.
In addition to choosing packaged foods that do not contain harmful toxins and are full of real, healthy, and low-sugar ingredients, dog parents can include “human” food in their puppy’s daily food which can increase the strength of your dog’s cancer prevention.
The vegetables above can irritate your puppy system (gas attack) so it is best to keep giving the stems only.
Dogs also find it delicious and fun to eat!
Other Cruciferae plants that are safe and suitable for cancer prevention include cabbage, bok choy, turnips, rutabaga and Brussels sprouts.
Berry Blueberries, raspberries, and cranberries are all super foods to be included in your dog’s diet.
What makes them great at preventing cancer is the high level of antioxidants they contain.
They also have a lot of vitamins and fiber and are associated with improved memory and heart health.
Cranberry supplements are also a good choice.
Coconut, Hemp, or Olive Oil One problem with giving only commercial dog food to your dog is that it does not have enough good fat.
This is fat that gives our body essential fatty acids and fuel.
Most importantly, good fats allow our body to absorb and utilize all the good vitamins in our food without the bad cholesterol that clogs our blood vessels.
Coconut oil, flax oil, and olive oil are good choices for dogs because of their tolerance and good taste.
They are super simple to manage too.
Just add some of the oil above for whatever your dog eats.
Mixing the right amount on top of the kibble is the best way to increase the nutritional value of your dog’s food and suppleness.
Many dogs love carrots and will eat them raw as a snack.
Parsnips can be eaten raw in chopped or cooked pieces if your dog tends to swallow something without chewing.
They prevent cancer through powerful antioxidants and vitamin K for bone health.
They also help maintain the health of your dog’s nervous system, boost his immune system with vitamins and minerals, provide plenty of fiber for healthy digestion, and contain ingredients that increase his metabolism.
Kale, Swiss chard, spinach, beet greens, collard greens, and many more are all considered “dark leafy vegetables” and they are widely used in smoothies, eaten raw, or cooked with a little fat for flavor and vitamin absorption.
Like all green plants, dark leafy vegetables also contain chlorophyll which has the benefit of preventing cancer for dogs.
