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.

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.
