Nutrition plays a central role in the management of dogs and cats with cancer. This lecture will briefly review what is known about the relationship between nutritional status and cancer in small animals, including discussion of both cancer cachexia and obesity. The steps involved in choosing the best diet for the individual dog or cat with cancer will be outlined, including recommendations regarding energy intake and selected nutrients such as protein, carbohydrate and n-3 (omega) fatty acids. The primary purpose of this lecture is to offer practical information that will assist the veterinary technician in providing optimal and individualized nutritional recommendations for cats and dogs with cancer.
