Natural Ways to Prevent Canine Cancer


     1 in 3 dogs are diagnosed with cancer, this number has been increasing for decades, a common cause could very well be due to the increase of unhealthy diets and the increase of toxins your pet is being exposed to every day. It’s scary to think about, but as a pet owner it is something that you should be aware of and something that you should always be trying to prevent, one way to do that is by strengthening your pets immune system naturally through their diet! 

Cancer cells feed off sugar, and kibble contains up to 60% carbohydrates. Carbs convert to sugar. In addition, the high heat processing of conventional pet foods causes the formation of cancer causing heterocyclic amines (HCA’s). Which are carcinogenic and mutagenic chemicals formed from cooking muscle meats. Studies show associations between intakes of HCA’s and cancers of the colon, rectum, breast, prostate, pancreas, lung, stomach, and esophagus.

While a raw diet does not treat cancer, it has many benefits, especially because it is not processed. It doesn’t include any preservatives and is higher in fat and low in sugar, it can greatly reduce the risks.

Feeding meals which are higher in fat, and low in carbs can relieve pressure on the liver and other organs while they work to combat the disease. Cancer cells have a difficult time using fat as an energy source.

Oxidative stress happens when your dog doesn’t have enough antioxidants to neutralize free radicals, excess of free radicals can lead to cell or tissue damage and is related to chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes and heart disease. A raw diet is naturally high in antioxidants.

Taurine is found in raw meat and is an amino acid found in high concentrations in heart tissue and raw goats milk! It has many health benefits including antineoplastic effects which means it can prevent the growth of tumours or malignant cells.

The liver’s main job is to help get toxins out of your dog’s body. And the world is full of toxins, everything from pollution, household cleaners, air fresheners and over vaccinating can all be taxing on your pets liver. So it’s really important to keep the liver running efficiently.

Adored Beast liver tonic protects and helps the body detoxify after exposure, it works to stabilize liver cell membranes and acts as an antioxidant to protect liver cells from free radical damage. It also supports bile secretion, healthy digestion and helps to fight inflammation. Which is super important because chronic inflammation is responsible for most disease, including cancer. 

Natural supplements to reduce the risks

Omega 3 fatty acids possess anti cancer properties. Your pet can’t produce omega 3’s and Omega 6. Omega 6 is found more readily in meat and actually increases inflammation. Cancer is an inflammatory disease and Omega 3 reduces inflammation. Sources of Omega 3 are best found in fish which is why it’s vital you are giving your pet a fish oil. 

Research shows CBD oil and other substances in hemp and cannabis have an anti-tumor effect. It has even been shown to stop cancer cells from growing and increases tumor cell death.

Medicinal mushrooms are extremely beneficial. Turkey tail mushrooms have been well researched and are believed to prevent and aid in fighting cancer as well as slow the aging process, manage inflammation and supporting gut health. It has the highest beta-glucan content of any medical mushroom, making it the most-used cancer-fighting mushroom. Turkey tail boosts the production of the cells the body relies on to kill abnormal cells that can form tumours. Reishi Mushrooms are known as the mushroom of immortality because it helps modulate the immune system, supports adrenal glands to manage stress, and helps regulate the digestive system. Chaga mushrooms have strong antioxidant function to protect DNA from oxidative damage, support the immune system, promote muscle strength, and help regulate blood sugar.

Blueberries and blackberries are super high in antioxidants which protects your dogs brain from oxidative stress by preventing cell damage.

Phytonutrients helps prevent cells from developing into malignant cancerous growths. Phytonutrients are organic compounds found in plants. Dark green leafy vegetables such as kale, bok choi are especially high in these phytonutrients.

Broccoli fights inflammation and increases cell death in tumours and prevents the formation of tumour blood vessels.

Sweet potato contains carotenoids and beta-carotene which is high in vitamin A which reduces the risk of certain cancers.
