Rocco's Diet

I have been meaning to write a post about Rocco's new diet. One of the first things I found out probably in the few hours after learning of Rocco's diagnosis was that cancer likes carbs, and most cancer patients are recommended to go on a high-protein, low-carb diet. So we switched Rocco's food to Wellness CORE grain-free chicken and turkey. Prior to that, he was eating the Wellness Super 5 Mix, Lamb formula. We also added boiled chicken to his diet as well as salmon oil pills. 

Unfortunately, as Kevin mentioned, Rocco has been steadily losing weight even though we have been feeding him more food, so we are considering adding some high-fat puppy food into his diet. It's important that he keeps his weight up through this process.
