How To Feed A Cat With Cancer

catvetCats with cancer often lose their appetite and getting them to eat can be a challenge. Without nutritional support, they can lose weight so fast that it is hard for them to recover from the disease. The dietary needs of cats with cancer are not fully understood but experts recommend certain guidelines. Reduce the amount of simple carbohydrate and highly digestible protein in the diet and include more Omega 3 fatty acid. Don’t forget about water, this is most important nutrient. Offer moist cat food that smells great, warm it up and keep the animal’s environment calm and quiet. If your sick cat won’t eat, your veterinarian may suggest pet medications to increase appetite or if that fails, the use of a stomach tube.

two-dogsbowlDogs like to have their own dog food bowls, but do you really need more than one water bowl for more than one dog? What about the germs in each dog’s mouth? Just like humans, dogs have a lot of bacteria in their saliva. Lets not call them all germs because many bacteria serve a useful purpose. Bad bacteria usually gets zapped by acid in the dogs stomach when it swallows. Some diseases that dogs pass along are respiratory. Some are transmitted by fecal contaminants. Dogs with healthy immune systems can safely share one water bowl. Just make sure that you keep plenty of water around. Adult dogs are 60% water and it should stay that way. Make sure you feed you dog quality dog food and don’t forget about dog treats!
