Raw Diet for Pets with Cancer

OncoLink
Last Modified: September 17, 2012

Question:

I've read that a diet free of grains may slow the cancer, is this accurate? what are the panel's thoughts on the Budwig diet or flax oil/cottage cheese combination?

Erika Krick, VMD, DACVIM, Veterinary Medical Oncologist, University of Pennsylvania, responds:

Answer:

There are no clinical studies of grain free diets in dogs with cancer. I would recommend that you consult a holistic veterinarian or veterinary nutritionist with your diet questions.

The AVMA recently approved a policy on raw diets that may be helpful.
