Foods That Can Help Prevent Cancer in Dogs
According to the National Cancer Institute, nearly 35% of all human cancers can be attributed to diet imbalances and cancer in dogs is no different. Canine cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs over ten years old.
The best thing you can do to prevent cancer in your dog (and yourself) is by feeding a healthy, balanced diet that keeps the immune system strong and fights free radicals. Foods that protect dogs from getting cancer are considered super foods that are rich in minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants.
According to Oregon State University’s journal, Cancer Prevention, green leafy vegetables containing chlorophyll block the absorption of carcinogens and aflatoxins (often found in the corn and fish found in kibble) and help block carcinogens from entering the blood stream. Kale, and other green super-foods, contain carotenoids that travel through our dog’s bodies and remove carcinogens out of cells.
The following foods can be lightly cooked or fed raw to help protect your dog from getting cancer:
- Bok choi
- Mustard greens
- Brussels sprouts
Foods containing concentrated sources of vitamin D3 also help prevent cancer, such as:

Have both sizes of the jolly soccer ball, dogs get frustrated that they can’t pick it up & lose interest in it. Dogs are a Siberian husky & a Golden retriever
Clasp I ordered was too large, I returned and GSS exchanged for the correct size and sent quickly
This is a quality collar and I’m very happy with my purchase.
We are able to groom our very hairy shepherds with the large brush.
I love how the bacon, egg and cheese training treats are only ONE calorie!! Love how there’s minimum ingredients (all natural) most of all customer service is amazing!! I purchased kidney and beef liver snacks, I was under the impression I would receive a free bag of treats, which I did not with this first delivery (my fault) they sent me an email back right away stating I would receive a free bag of treats!! I love the German shepherd shop!!!
