My holistic vet is very big on the keto diet,.. My onco vet,, who is well known in the US, ( name withheld) is not a fan.. Here is his post to my inquiry on keto programs
This is so frustrating, isn't it? There are so many opinions it makes a new osteo diagnosis feel more overwhelming than it already is. My dog just had an amputation two days ago so i am very new to this whole thing. But we have started using Dr.Harveys Paradigm food for a ketogenic diet, and I feel good about it. My dog likes it and it is nothing if not nutrient packed. We add lean meats. Low carb does not equal high fat to us. There are $4 samples on the website. We also are using a whole regimine of turkey tail, mushroom elixer, life Gold, hemp leaf and probiotics/yogurt/whey in addition to distilled water and diatemaceous Earth. Yes, we've gone off the deep end..
Yes, we are using only distilled water. For absolutely everything, including making the bone broth, boiling an egg if we want to hard boil, etc. Now I am just so torn if I want to stay on the ketogenic diet hard core, or give him some kibble, but really high quality/air dried (Expensive) That the holistic person I’m working with recommended. At this point, I may just wind up making everything myself and supplementing with the paradigm food.
Please keep in touch with what your info vet thinks. I'm curious. I think we are going to stick with a ketogenic diet, but modified and mostly homemade. We use only one scoop of Paradigm food, add some rich greens that I cooked up, and mix in a variety of meats. We also give yogurt, whey.. so far, he's a happy boy! Good luck to you.
