Comment of the Week

“I know the ‘and his dog’ was meant as a joke, but our dog has bone cancer in her humerus. Rather than the recommended amputation, chemo and radiation treatment path, we have her on several holistic treatments and changed her diet to Keto. No glycogen to feed her cancer cells, and cancer cells (which need lots of energy) don’t do well on ketones. We are just months in, but she is enjoying life everyday.”

– That’s dogs for ya, Jan. Good luck!
