On that note, I stumbled upon an article by Dr. Karen Becker (source) on cancer causing factors. Thought you would find this helpful, so I summarized her key bullets below:
5 things you can consider for Pet Cancer:
Healthy weight."It's important to remember that fat doesn't just sit on your pet's body harmlessly. It produces inflammation that can promote tumor development." - Dr. Karen Becker, source
Low carb, anti-inflammatory foods.Carbs are known to promote inflammation, AND fuel cancer cells. "Cancer cells generally can't use dietary fats for energy, so high amounts of good-quality fats are nutritionally beneficial for dogs fighting cancer..." - Dr. Karen Becker, source
Exposure to toxins.Think of the impact of pesticides, commercial flea/tick preventatives and household cleaners on a dog's immunity.
Over-vaccination. Studies have explored potential harmful impacts of over-vaccinating in our pets.
Stress. Stress is widely known as a contributor to poor health, both from an emotional and physical standpoint.
Please note: we always recommend partnering with a holistic and integrative veterinarian professionals with any health concerns, as we are not medical experts. You can find a holistic vet here: SEARCH
Feel free to share this with friends & family, the more WE know as pet parents, the greater we can do :)
