Dog Cancer Diet (makes 3 days of food for 12-15kg dog) by Veterinary Oncologist Greg Ogilvie

454g                      lean ground beef, fat drained

227g  (1 1/3 cups) cooked white rice

138g                      liver, beef, cooked and diced

63g (4 ½ Tbs)       vegetable oil

9g                         fish oil(9x1000-mg fish oil capsules)*

3.3g                      calcium carbonate**

2.9g  (3/4 tsp)      dicalcium phosphate*** (3/4 tsp)

1.9g (1/3 tsp)       salt substitute (potassium chloride)

* Note: Owners are encouraged to feed the highest fish (or preferably docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)) oil dose tolerated by the dog.

** Calcium carbonate is available as oyster shell calcium tablets or TumsÒ tablets (0.5 g in regular Tums, 0.75 g in Tums Extra and 1.0 g in Tums Ultra).

** * Bone meal can be used in place of dicalcium phosphate.

Directions:

Cook the rice with salt substitute added to the water. Cook the ground beef and drain the fat. Cook the liver and dice or finely chop into small pieces. Pulverize the calcium carbonate and vitamin/mineral tablets. Mix the vegetable oil, fish oil (break open capsules) and supplements with the rice and then add the cooked ground beef and liver. Mix well, cover and refrigerate. Feed approximately one-third of this mixture each day to a 25-30 pound dog. Palatability will be increased if the daily portion is heated to approximately body temperature (Caution: when using microwave, avoid “hot spots,” which can burn the mouth).
