Jill's oncologist wrote this article today for vetstreet and I wanted to share as I found it very interesting!  Enjoy!

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Great article, Erica....thanks

Especially interesting to me as Tuck is on a "diet" though he is on a food that I buy through my vet specifically geared to healthy weight loss i.e. not muscle loss.

Excellent resource thank you! I was especially interested in this paragraph, and hope that folks always discuss nutritional supplements with their vet for the very reasons Dr. Hohenhaus describes here:

But plant-based medications can also potentially cause harm. Recently, one of my patients received herbal medications from a specialist in Chinese medicine. Routine blood tests identified a concerning increase in liver enzymes; despite a lengthy evaluation, a cause was not revealed. Discontinuation of the herbs resolved the problem. While trying to figure out her problem, I discovered an entire chapter in one of my hefty internal medicine books on the impact of herbal medications on dog and cat livers.

Yes Rene, that was the part I found most interesting.  Since Dr. Hohenhaus is Jill's vet, I know first hand she is not the biggest fan of holistic supplements....she doesn't ever say  they're BAD or not to use them (unless she has a reason to backed up by research), but whenever I would bring one up, she always did a bunch of research into them when I asked her about them first!
