May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month. Getting the news that your loved one has cancer is never easy, but, unfortunately, we live in a World full of pollution and it’s becoming more and more common. Below are some helpful cancer-fighting supplements you can give to your pet to help fight off those awful cells!

Diggin Turkey Tail - We all know mushrooms are powerful at boosting the immune system. Turkey tail supports and promotes a healthy immune and cell function, which is important for a pup who has cancer. Turkey Tail is powerful in shrinking tumor growth. It also tackles many other important areas like inflammation, frequent infections (UTIs, respiratory, etc.), food allergies, autoimmune disorders, heart and skin disorders, and much more.

CBD - I can’t say enough about CBD. All my dogs get CBD daily. Even if your dog doesn’t have any health problems, the benefits of CBD are amazing. There is solid evidence that cannabinoids can reduce tumor growth. CBD can also help with inflammation and pain. If your pet has any anxiety/nerves, CBD can help keep your pup calm as well.

Carb Restrictions - Remember: A low or no-carb diet starves cancer cells. It’s important that your dog isn’t eating anything to keep those cells from thriving. A raw diet is always going to be the best option for a dog with cancer, as it has no carbs and provides everything your dog needs to thrive. If a raw diet is not an option, that’s okay! There are many other diets. For example, a lightly cooked diet, freeze-dried, or air-dried diets are all great choices. You just want to stay away from carbs as much as possible! Omegas are important in a diet as well. Some great options for omegas are Coconut oil, Hemp Oil, and Fish Oil.

Spirulina - Spirulina is a big-time cancer fighter, as it helps support a strong immune system. Spirulina has powerful antioxidants which work synergistically in different sites in your pet's body. Spirugreen, the brand we carry, is one of the World's most powerful fat-soluble antioxidant carotenoids. 

Fruits & Vegetables - Did you know blueberries, broccoli, and apples are all amazing treats you can feed your pup? They are cancer-fighting superfoods! You can throw them in your pet’s diet or just give them as daily treats.

What’s the most important thing you can do for your pet? Love them. That is all they want from you - just for you to love them through it all. After all, they love us no matter what, right? It’s the least we can do for them.
