Oncology nutritionist diet

Just wanted to add another post after some feedback from Jerry that it might be of interest.

After Jessee was diagnosed with osteosarcoma we were referred to Puget Sound Veterinary Specialists by our primary vet.  the oncologist, Dr. Rizzo suggested we might want to consider a nutritionist consult for Jessee to get the best diet for her.  A special diet was prepared for Jessee based on a review of her medical records.

The daily diet consists of the following:

311.85 grams of chicken breast (boneless/skinless)

351 grams of cooked oats (after being cooked in water)

300 grams of sweet potatoes, baked in skin without salt

117 grams of broccoli, boiled without salt

39 grams of carrots, boiled without salt

37 grams of blueberries or strawberries or apples/melon  She likes blueberries

6.8 grams of flaxseed oil, cold pressed

8.05 grams of Nordic Naturals Omega 3 Pet Liquid

4 teaspoons of Balance it Carnivore Blend

1/8  mL of pure encapsulated Liquid B12

The diet provides 1350.8 calories per day.

I supplement this with ElleVet (another blog post with more detail) and 5 Mushrooms supplment (capsule)

Jessee has had no hesitation eating this,  Bowels have been good even after chemo (hope that continues)

Anyway, just wanted to share.  It is alot of work but as with everyone who reads this or is a part of Tripawds, Jessee means the world to mean and I will continue making this every four days to keep her happy and healthy for as long as possible!  PS, I make four to five days ahead.  Each day goes into one container to make sure she has everything she needs.  I feed her three times a day, so she gets 3/4 lb at each meal.  Each recipe makes 2.25 lbs.

  1. Hi!! I saw your blog post on the tripawds Facebook page. I think our dogs had surgery at the same clinic in Port Orchard! Small world. 😁 I, too, am cooking all my dogs food. It’s definitely a lot of work, but I actually kind of enjoy it. lol Jessee is gorgeous. Good luck to you both.

    1. Hi. Thank you for the well wishes and same to you. I love the vets at Puget sound. They even sent me a text pix of Jessee in recovery at the overnight facility. I agree with you completely there is something about preparing Jessee’s and Jaymees diet that is very bonding with them. She watches me closely as I go through the process. Feeding two Danes this diet I go through ten lbs of chicken breasts every four days and tons of everything else. Trying to get a video of her walking with her new orthodic device! Thanks for the comment

  2. WOW that recipe sounds so yummy! I want to make it for myself.

    Now talk about a small world: we interviewed Dr. Rizzo on Tripawd Talk Radio! She is WONDERFUL! You are so fortunate to be working with her.

    Thank you for sharing. It sounds like such a great way to help Jessee beat cancer and stay healthy. You rock!

  3. Dr. Rizzo is fantastic. Jessee had her third chemo session this past Tuesday and we spent some quality time with Dr. Rizzo with her reassuring me and calming me down. Jessee is doing great on the diet! I gave her a copy of this and she was surprised and very pleased!
