Nutrition & Diet


An appropriate nutritional plan and diet regimen may help the immune system function at its peak while decreasing inflammation. For example, as current research suggests, diets rich in carbohydrates (specifically those high on the glycemic index) may not be the best choices for an animal with cancer.  A whole food diet with high quality protein and lots of leafy green vegetables may be more appropriate for these animals.   Moreover, diets rich in omega 3 fatty acids can help decrease inflammation in the body overall, thus can benefit many, if not all disease states from osteoarthritis, kidney and liver disease to cognitive function.  Therefore, a discussion of your pet’s current diet and a well thought plan, can greatly influence health and well being.
