What should I feed my cat with stomach cancer?

For a cat diagnosed with stomach cancer, providing a specialized diet is crucial for managing symptoms and supporting overall health. Hill's Prescription Diet ONC Care Dry Cat Food is specifically formulated to meet the nutritional needs of cats with cancer. This diet was introduced in October 2023 and was the first of its kind. Jolle Kirpensteijn, DVM and chief veterinary officer at Hill's Pet Nutrition, notes that improved preventative care has increased pet lifespans and early cancer detection. Kirpensteijn highlights the rising incidence of cancer in pets and stresses the need to utilize scientific and nutritional expertise to create specialized clinical nutrition. This nutrition is specifically tailored to support pets undergoing cancer treatment, aiming to aid in their fight against the disease. This diet aims to support the immune system, aid in digestion, and maintain a healthy body weight. These are all essential considerations for managing cancer in cats. The formula is carefully crafted with high-quality ingredients that are easily digestible and gentle on the stomach. This helps minimize gastrointestinal upset that can accompany cancer treatments or the disease itself. Additionally, the food is likely to contain added nutrients such as antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and other beneficial ingredients to support your cat's well-being.Reference:https://www.petfoodprocessing.net/articles/16736-hills-launches-new-prescription-diet-to-support-pets-with-cancer

How long will a cat live with cancer?

Cancer in cats, like in humans, can vary greatly in terms of its aggressiveness, type, and how early it's diagnosed. While chemotherapy can extend survival time, it's not a cure-all. The prognosis for a cat with cancer depends on various factors. This includes the type and stage of cancer, the overall health of the cat, and how well they respond to treatment. On average, with chemotherapy, a cat diagnosed with cancer might survive for around six months. However, Jennifer Coates, a DVM from Colorado, notes that this can vary significantly. Some cats may respond very well to treatment and live for a year or more, while others may succumb to the disease much sooner. Additionally, factors like the location of the cancer and any concurrent health issues can also impact longevity.Reference:https://www.petmd.com/cat/conditions/cancer/cancer-cats

Can chemotherapy treat cancer in cats?

Yes, chemotherapy can be used to treat cancer in cats. It aims to shrink or eliminate cancerous cells by administering drugs that target rapidly dividing cells, which are characteristic of cancer. Chemotherapy in cats is often tailored to the specific type and stage of cancer. While it can be effective in controlling the spread of cancer and improving quality of life, it may also have side effects. This includes things like nausea, vomiting, and suppression of the immune system. The decision to pursue chemotherapy for a cat depends on various factors. This includes the type of cancer, its stage, and the overall health of the cat. Pat Fisher, an experienced pet owner, recounted their perspective on cat cancer treatment. They mentioned that their cat weighed 8 pounds at its healthiest before developing cancer. Despite administering two doses of chemotherapy, they felt it wasn't worth it. This is due to the three-week recovery period and only one good week before the next dose. The extensive treatment costs thousands of dollars, contrasting with some pet owners' reluctance to cover prescription costs. Pat believed their cat wouldn't have survived surgery and ultimately lived four years post-diagnosis. Their experience underscores the complexities and challenges involved in treating cat cancer.Reference:https://www.quora.com/Is-there-any-way-to-treat-a-cat-with-cancer-at-home-If-not-why-wont-surgery-be-enough-as-in-humans

What is a homemade diet for cats with cancer?

A homemade diet for cats with cancer should prioritize high-quality, easily digestible ingredients to support their overall health and immune system. Cooked meats like chicken, turkey, or lean beef can serve as the foundation, providing essential protein while being gentle on their stomach. Including a variety of vegetables such as carrots, peas, and leafy greens can provide vital nutrients and antioxidants to bolster their immune function. Fruits like blueberries or apples can offer additional vitamins and antioxidants but should be limited due to their sugar content. Grains like rice or quinoa can be included for energy but should be kept to a minimum to avoid excess carbohydrates. Some homemade diets for cats with cancer also incorporate raw ingredients like meaty chicken or turkey bones for added calcium and dental health benefits. Organ meats such as liver, kidney, and heart are rich in essential nutrients like vitamins A and B12, which can support overall vitality.

How do you slow down cancer in cats?

To slow down cancer in cats, prioritize preventive measures like avoiding carcinogens in household products and keeping cats indoors to minimize exposure to toxins. Ensuring they are spayed or neutered can also help. Vaccinate cats against feline leukemia virus to reduce susceptibility to certain cancers. Eliminate smoking around cats, as secondhand smoke can lead to lung cancer and other health issues. Maintain your cat's overall health through a balanced diet, regular exercise, and wellness exams with your veterinarian. These proactive steps can significantly decrease the risk of cancer and promote a longer, healthier life for your feline companion.

Disappointed, high carbs

GI Lymphoma is common in cats yet you add inflammatory ingredients for an obligate carnivore such as glutens, grains, and sometimes even chicken. These new Onc foods are high in carbs with all the corn and wheat and grains. Why can't you make an appetizing cat diet with just meat, fats, and a little prebiotic fiber? Cancer diets should be low carb, especially for carnivores.

Our cat loves this food

Our cat was just diagnosed with a primary lung tumor and our doctor suggested this product. I was hesitant with the corn gluten meal as I am concerned about fillers and allergies. However, she loves it and I am trusting Hills that it will help her as she lives with her cancer. Very grateful that you have created it.

Not Just for Cancer Patients

One of my cats, Inky, whom I obtained when she was about 3-weeks-old, was born with a peritoneal-pericardial diaphragmatic hernia along with a sternal defect that were not surgically corrected until she was 9-months-old. Post operation, she was still thin months afterwards despite her unwavering appetite and vomited very often because of her congenital deformities having affected her growth. When this diet was announced, and I heard that it could be used for situations other than cancer, I opted to try it in hopes it would fill Inky's body condition out so that she could be even a little bit more "normal." After being on the diet since it was released, Inky has definitely gained weight and it's even helped reduce her chronic vomiting (along with a medication). She's also been more playful, something which I haven't seen from her since she was a kitten...! Not to mention, she loves the food; though, that's never been a problem for Inky. While I can't vouch for ONC Care on behalf of a pet with cancer, I would definitely recommend it should a veterinarian recommend it for a patient that it may benefit.
