What i discovered

What I discovered…

  • Great resources on the web for dogs with cancer (http://b-naturals.com/Sum1998.php)

  • “Dr. Ogilvie reports that tumors need glucose to live, which are simple sugars found in many carbohydrates. It gives energy to the tumor, and robs energy from the dog.”


Spud s first raw meal 2002

Spud’s first raw meal (2002)

  • Ground chicken and veggies myself

  • Expensive and time-consuming

  • Relatively unsafe – temp fluctuations
