For those of you with cancer pups who are following the low-carb/high-protein cancer diet, there is a great new line of grain-free food from Merrick Pet Foods called Before Grain. Available as dry food in Buffalo, Chicken and Salmon varieties, they also offer canned versions in Beef, Turkey, Chicken, Buffalo, Tripe and Salmon. Completely grain free, these foods are also free of by-products, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. They’ve also included some other beneficial ingredients to help boost your pup’s immune system and keep their digestive system healthy.
This new line of foods may be a great alternative to Hill’s N/D (for dogs who prefer a dried kibble) or Evo. For more information or to locate stores that carry this line of products, visit the Merrick Pet Foods website.
Remember, food is a major quality of life issue for most of our dogs — while a strict nutritional plan is good to use as a guideline, the most important thing is that your dog is eating regularly and enjoying his or her meals (and snacks too)!
Is there a commercial dog food or home-made diet that your vet has recommended since your dog was diagnosed with cancer? Please share your experiences with us! For more information about canine cancer, visit Georgia’s Legacy at www.fightcaninecancer.com.
