My 11 year old westie as just diagnosed with bladder cancer. I feed him Canine Caviar Fish kibble it has kept him itch free for years. I am wondering if I should switch his diet to low carb/sugar because carb/sugar promote tumor growth. Does anyone have any information to share?

I hope these articles and the comments provided help you with your decisions. Frankly I would listen to what your vet recommends and consider consulting an veterinary oncology specialist. Not sure how aggressive you want to be about treatment but at least you will know your options and get some expert advice.
So sorry to hear about your dog…
if you’re on facebook here’s the “Ketopets” page

I would stop feeding any fish kibbles as they have been found to be higher in Toxins & Contaminates…if he’s staying on a dry proccessed kibble look for kibbles that have Turkey as main protein as turkey meat is heaps cleaner then any fish in a dry dog kibble…
If you can cook for him then I’d start cooking his meals, even if you just feed him 1 cooked meal a day that has healthy fresh whole foods…anti cancer foods, broccoli, spinach, leafy dark greens, kale, carrots, cranberries, blueberries, winter squash, apple, flaxseed..
I wonder if your dog didn’t eat a fish kibble year after year would he have still gotten bladder cancer??
We need to do more research into a dogs diet, especially when the dog just eats a dry kibble & their dry diet isnt rotated between different brands & meat proteins…
No research by Hills, Royal Canine or Purina….
