Recently, we lost our family dog to lymphoma.
She was only 8-years-old and was one of the best dogs we have ever owned.
When she was first diagnosed, we were shocked. How could our dog get cancer? We fed her an organic, grain-free kibble, we lived in a toxin-free household, and we minimized the amount of pharmaceuticals she was prescribed over the years. I thought we were doing everything right to keep her toxic load low.
Two different veterinarians told us that Rottweilers are simply prone to cancer, so it was in her genes. But with everything I know about health, I know that genes are triggered by toxins. If my dog had a gene for cancer, something turned that gene on.
The other thing I know about genes is that if they get turned on by toxins, you can turn them off with the ketogenic diet, the right supplements, and a good detox.
Luckily we have a holistic vet, Dr. Stephanie Sur, who we have worked with for years. We went to her looking for answers on how to help our dog fight cancer naturally.
When she was diagnosed, our dog was given a month to live. Using natural principles, we were able to enjoy her for another year and half.
Last Friday, I asked Dr. Sur to come do an FB Live with me. I wanted to interview her so you can all learn the do’s and don’ts of keeping your dogs cancer-free.
In this interview, we talk about three key principles:
- Keeping your pet’s environment toxin-free.
- Sourcing the best food for your pets.
- Applying ketogenic principles to your pet’s diet.
I hope the information we share in this video gives you more time with your beloved pet.
If you have any questions about the protocols I used with my dog, please reach out. I am happy to share with you what worked and didn’t work for us. Enjoy your pets, friends!
