Right now, on a 53-acre plot of land outside Austin, Texas, we at KetoPet Sanctuary (KPS) are doing something incredible. This isn’t your typical canine rescue facility. KPS goes out of its way to rescue dogs with incurable, terminal cancer. Our goal isn’t to provide hospice-like treatment for terminal dogs – of course we care for and love the animals, but instead of writing off the canine companions to their fate, we at KPS provide groundbreaking cancer therapy. We’ve been doing this since October of 2014 and the results are astounding. Plus, we guarantee each dog will have a loving forever home, for life.
What makes a nutritionally based approach to addressing cancer so interesting, is that there’s no proprietary drug or molecule that will be produced as a result of this effort. Many of the most powerful answers to dealing with cancer are at the grocery store. And that’s what we’ve been doing – investing our resources to test this idea and see if it’s really as powerful as we thought.
Pursuing a metabolic approach to addressing cancer using nutrition as a central pillar for disease intervention, offers a tremendous benefit, in that it does no harm. In collaboration with Veterinarians, Oncologists and Research Scientists, we continue to validate the anti-cancer effects of nutritional ketosis.
Providing human-grade cancer treatments for dogs is the epitome of One Health - it is the collaborative effort of human and veterinary medicine that is yielding impactful outcomes for these dogs. Our common sense approach optimizes animal health, welfare and quality of life.
I got into this to rescue dogs from kill-shelters, and provide for them the highest quality of life, in beautiful surroundings. When we started Ketopet, we weren't sure what to expect. Now we know we can help dogs thrive, and live long and happy lives!
Checking tumor metabolism via ketosis is a powerful adjuvant to standard of care. We are learning that the future of addressing cancer in canines will be through layered therapies.
Our multi-layered nutritional protocol is the foundation of our cancer therapy. Other treatment modalities such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery work synergistically with the nutrition.
We are dedicated to continuing and improving our program discovering answers to the most difficult problems in the sphere of modern health and wellness in both dogs and humans. We welcome any help, ideas, and ways anyone might be able to assist us and we’re prepared for individuals and institutions to collaborate with us.
