I took Dieter to his first rehab session today (which is enough for several blog posts - wow, what an eye opener), and the vet recommended that I make some adjustments to his diet.  Specifically, start mixing Hill's n/d with his regular food (Orijen).  I found one post from 2009 (!) that referenced the n/d diet, but am wondering if anyone has any newer information about this food in terms of helping osteosarcoma dogs.  I believe studies in the past showed it to be helpful for dogs with lymphoma, but don't know if any studies have been done with OS dogs.  

What's the word, Tripawd community?

Oooh we can't wait to hear more about the rehab visits!!!! Yes, blog away on those, we can't wait.

As for Hills n/d, we really haven't looked at it for a long time and I'm pretty sure we haven't heard about it being correlated with improved health and osteo, I think it's a general cancer care formula but I'm not 100 percent sure. Hills in general has ingredients that I'm not a big fan of (although that is changing with recent additions to their line), so I'm really sorry, can't be much help there but maybe others will chime in.

Personally I would not touch the vet formula foods with a ten foot pole.  They are grain heavy and corn heavy. That being said I am an avid raw feeder.
