Mast Cell Cancer and the Ketogenic Diet for Dogs
Canine Breed: Staffordshire Mix
Blazer is a sweet and rambunctious Staffordshire Terrier mix who loves playing with toys! KetoPet rescued Blazer after he was diagnosed with a Grade II Mast Cell Tumor.This kind of subcutaneous tumor can respond unpredictably to traditional canine cancer treatments. Thus, prognosis can vary significantly for dogs with this condition.
Blazer underwent PET/CT imaging and started on a ketogenic diet as soon as he arrived at the KetoPet sanctuary. After 60 days on the ketogenic diet, Blazer’s second PET/CT scan showed no evidence of disease. Blazer remains in good health and is now back to playing with giant rubber toys for hours on end!
