Anyone here who has used the diet prescribed by Dr. Dressler in the Canine Cancer Survival Guide? Any opinions?anonymousMember
I am not familiar with this diet, however, I worry about pet owners falling down the homeopathic rabbit hole.
If the dog is young or has a chance for a meaningful survival, your money would be better spent going to a veterinary oncologist to pursue treatment. Just my opinion.

We used the diet as well as the rest of the supplements for almost a year during treatment. I truly believe it helped improve the quality of my girl’s life as well as slow the progression of MCT. I couldn’t have been any happier with the information and assistance I received from the book, staff and the closed FaceBook group.
To be clear, Dr. Dressler’s protocol doesn’t lead anyone down a homeopathic rabbit hole. The book is very clear about all the cancer treatment options there are out there, which includes diet and supplements and encourages readers to take a comprehensive approach to the treatment of cancer in dogs. The Dog Cancer Survival Guide thoroughly explains all the types of cancers out there as well as what treatment options there are from chemo to holistic. His partner in writing the book is a well know Oncologist. There is nothing that says you can’t do both.anonymousMember

That’s not always true. Supplements can interfere with the absorption and effectiveness of some prescription medications.
Best to check with the vet that is treating your dog first before acting on stuff that you read on the internet.SusanParticipant
KetoPet was founded in 2014 as a flagship program under the 501(c)(3) non-profit, Epigenix Foundation. The KetoPet Sanctuary (KPS) was started to give shelter dogs with terminal cancer a “forever home” and save them from euthanization. Some of these dogs were given just weeks to live when they arrived at the KetoPet sanctuary.
In addition to nutritional therapy, KetoPet offered dogs the highest standard of veterinary and oncology care. Depending on each dog’s condition, we used therapies including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, personalized exercise programs, and hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT). These forms of cancer therapy are considered to be best-in-class for humans. We felt it necessary to do everything in our power to help dogs with cancer that came to us at KPS.
Remarkably, 55% of the dogs who graduated from the KPS program are still going for long walks, enjoying belly rubs, eating a raw keto diet, and experiencing a quality of life far beyond their original prognosis. Some of these sanctuary dogs are even living cancer-free today.Nancy WMember

My comment was in reference to what the book does or doesn’t say in response to the “holistic rabbit whole” comment. The
book and it recommendations does not exclude traditional treatments and in fact includes them and leaves the decision up to the caretaker.
