Emma just had her first chemo treatment this past Friday and I have been looking into the best food to feed her right now. She is a picky eater in general so I've got my work cut out for me! Right now she eats Merrick's Whole Earth Farms but I read that dogs going through chemo need something high in protein... does anyone have any experience with this? I'm also looking into things I can add to her diet like milk thistle, vitamins E & C, & omegas 3 & 6...was hoping to get some feedback on these as well if anyone has it. Thanks in advance!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Levi also had his first chemo treatment on Friday. We have been feeding him this diet (with a few fewer supplements) for over a week. His weight is about exactly the same as the dog this was developed for, so we feel good about it. You may need to adjust for your dog's weight, but this is something to consider. Good luck!

Levi was diagnosed w/likely osteosarcoma at 7.5 years old in 7/2015 and became a Tripawd on 9/11/15. Loved life until he broke one of his front legs on 2/12/17. As x-rays showed clean bone, we decided to repair the leg. He recovered well, but in June of 2017, started to limp on the same leg. X-Rays showed return of OSA in the front leg. Levi crossed the rainbow bridge on 7/20/17, after over 22 months as a happy Tripawd.
