    Here is the basic diet that would be good for most dogs.

    1 lb. Salmon, Mackerel , Tuna, Catfish, Halibut (boiled, baked or fried in olive oil) 3 oz of chicken liver or gizzard
    4 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 Whole sweet potato baked with skin then cut up
    1 cup Spinach (cooked)
    2 tomatoes (canned, whole or chopped)
    2 Sardines
    1 clove garlic minced
    ½ tsp dry, yellow mustard , ¼ tsp tumeric, ½ tsp cod liver oil

    You can mix all this together and serve or put in a food processor if you desire

    To this diet you need to add the following before serving
    1000mg of calcium
    Kelp-powdered or in pieces at least 500mg
    A multi-vitamin supplement from your veterinarian
    Fish Oil supplement--Omega 3 or Wild salmon oil--usually 3 capsules
    Probiotic source--usually 1 capsule daily-1/2 if a small dog

    Alternative Diet Formula

    1lb ground chicken (fat drained)
    2 sweet potatoes or 1 cup cooked quinoa
    1/3 cup liver (cooked)
    4.5 Tablespoon Safflower/Olive oil mixture( can use Sunflower Oil if necessary)
    Mix together and serve— alternatively can mix together in a stew

    To this diet you need to add the following before serving
    1000mg of calcium
    Kelp-powdered or in pieces at least 500mg
    A multi-vitamin supplement from your veterinarian
    Fish Oil supplement--Omega 3 or Wild salmon oil--usually 3 capsules
    Probiotic source --usually 1 capsule daily-1/2 if small dog

    These are basic diets. How about amounts-- A 10 lb dog 1 to 1-1/2 cups daily, 11 to 20 lbs 2 to 3 cups, up to 40 lbs 4cups, over that add about 2 cup per 20lbs. I add fruits and veggies to these diets depending on the cancer. Lots of colourful foods like blueberries and cantalope are great for support.

    Source of probiotic--Natural Wellbeing has a probiotic capsule which would work well for this. Small dogs would get 1/2 capsule and large dogs 1 capsule.
