  • Feeding Onions and Garlic
  • Applies To:All Lifestages
  • Although the recommendation to feed onion or garlic to pets is quite popular in the lay press, and allowable under current US AAFCO regulations, we do not recommend feeding garlic, leeks, onions and chives to dogs or cats because there is a potentially serious downside. Members of the Allium family (garlic, leeks, onions and chives) contain organosulfoxides, in particular, alk(en)ylcysteine sulfoxides. Cooking or spoilage of Allium plants does not reduce their potential toxicity.

  • Nutrition in Cancer Patients
  • Applies To:Cancer, Lifestage: Senior and Elderly
  • This article summarizes the collective knowledge to date on the nutritional factors, diets and feeding of companion animals with cancer. Nutritional support can reduce or prevent the side effects associated with cancer therapy and help ameliorate the metabolic changes induced by cancer in dogs and cats. Additionally, there is growing evidence that specific nutrients may aid in the treatment of some cancers. Manipulating the dietary fat, protein (amino acids) and soluble carbohydrate concentrations can potentially minimize the stress response and slow tumor progression.
