Pancreatitis Dog Diet for Cancer │ Dr. Nancy Reese Q&A

The dog cancer diet recommended in The Dog Cancer Survival Guide is pretty high in fat. Can a dog with pancreatitis follow those guidelines? Dr. Nancy Reese advises caller Susan on how to modify the dog cancer diet for her dog with pancreatitis.


Susan calls in with a question about the dog cancer diet. Can it be used with a dog with pancreatitis? Or is it too high in fat?

Dr. Nancy Reese, our chief medical editor, outlines the general modifications she would make to the dog cancer diet – and what she would be sure to add as a fat source. It’s good news, because you can do it in alignment with the dog cancer diet.

Note: remember that any advice we offer on this show is general advice and does NOT apply to every dog. If you have any questions about what to feed your dog, your own veterinarian is the best person to ask. A referral to a veterinary nutritionist is also a great idea!

You can get the dog cancer diet guidelines by getting a copy of our sponsoring book: The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity by Dr. Demian Dressler and Dr. Susan Ettinger.
