Hemangiosarcoma and the Ketogenic Diet for Cancer
Canine Breed: Hungarian Vizsla
Cali is the first graduate of the KetoPet program. She’s a sassy and athletic Vizsla who loves humans and lots of affection. The fact that she is alive today is nothing short of miraculous.
Cali was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma in 2014. More dogs die of this type of cancer than any other canine cancer. Most dogs only survive a few months after diagnosis. Cali’s hemangiosarcoma was discovered by her previous owner when she was pregnant.
An ultrasound revealed shocking news. What should have been a litter of six puppies was actually one puppy and a massive hemangiosarcoma tumor. Cali went through surgery to remove the tumor and her veterinarians gave her only six weeks to live.
Once at KetoPet, Cali was placed on a raw ketogenic diet and PET scanned. Cali’s scan showed that her hemangiosarcoma had already metastasized throughout her body. However, three years and many scans later Cali is now cancer-free and continues to enjoy lots of love, exercise and delicious food as she maintains a raw ketogenic diet!
