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:
A very simple way to supplement your dog’s diet is to simply chop or grate the super foods and mix with meals.

I went from dreading my daily walks (neighborhood and park) with my 5 1/2 month old Aussie due to his reactiveness (lunging, growling, barking, pulling, etc.) to enjoying them. After I summoned the courage to put on the prong collar despite his protests and all of the negative opinions by multiple trainers, within 30 minutes he became a joy to walk, staying by my side. Today was the 2nd day I used it and 3 other dogs barked and lunged at him on our walks. He became a little edgy but stayed with me each time and never growled, barked, or got on his hind legs as he has done in the past when we met other people, children and dogs on our walks. Although he is not yet perfect, the pain and strain on my back and shoulder is now in my rear view mirror. A million thanks!
Great lead for training our pup! He has 33’ of freedom now while also training and keeping him controlled. He loves the additional running room!
I use this bite pillow as a reward during obedience training and my Doberman loves it!! It is small enough and flat enough to tuck under my arm and pull out as a reward during heeling etc. The handle is so easy for me to hang on to with my arthritic hands. My dog loves to tug and most other tugs are difficult for me to hang on to. My Dobes have always preferred French linen over leather.
Frank loves these, every flavor we’ve tried he seems to like. Very affordable and the right size for training. He gets into the command a little faster when he knows I’ve got them. Morgan at GSS always leaves a nice note for me in the packages as well, thank you!
