From Deserving Dog:
Did you know that thousands of dogs die of cancer every day?
Think about that… every day people everywhere lose their best, furry friends to this horrible disease. In fact, cancer is the number one cause of natural death in dogs!
We want to do something about that.
We want to help owners help their canine companions beat this horrible disease. We already know that great food helps but we also know that we CAN do better.
How many times have you heard someone say, “Well, he’s just a dog?” As if that somehow changes the fact that he or she has much the same needs that we do. And, when you consider all that dogs do for us from sniffing out cancer, bombs, trapped victims and a hundred other things to leading the blind and comforting the sick and dying in hospitals (with a list of other worthy jobs a ‘mile’ long including bringing nearly constant joy into our everyday lives) why should they eat what often largely amounts to industrial waste?
As is the case with humans, we believe that the chances for success with traditional treatment is enhanced through better nutrition. And in this case, specifically targeted nutrition based on the type of cancer the dog has!
When humans are diagnosed with diseases, nutrition (diet) is one vital area with which they have expert help. We are trying to do the same for dogs.
You can help!
We at Deserving Dog are passionate about helping dogs through food… real food!
And in the case of cancer, we need your help to develop and bring to market specifically engineered, cancer support nutrition solutions for dogs.
A few dogs with cancer have already benefited greatly by one of our custom created diets but, with your help, our new approach will be even more effective!
As they say, and we are all finding increasingly true, “Food is medicine.”
Deserving Dog will be formulating a food that is specifically engineered to provide dogs with cancer the types and levels of nutrition to help them in the fight of their lives.
- Our plan is to develop tumor type-specific nutritional solutions.
- This will be unlike any other product on the market, anywhere!
And, it will help give dogs with this horrific disease a much better chance for a positive outcome when paired with medical treatment as provided by their veterinary team.
In the human community the importance of quality nutrition is increasingly recognized as critical to our health. It is also known that specific nutrition is extremely important in the overall treatment of cancer – do our canine companions deserve any less?
Millions of dogs die each year from this horrible disease. You, a friend or a loved one has probably been touched by canine cancer.
Prolonging the life of a beloved pet – or helping to reverse the course of this insidious disease – can mean the world to a pet owner. You can help!
Research and formulation of the diet is one part of the project. The other is to enhance Deserving Dog’s capability to produce our food in greater quantities so we can help as many dogs receive top quality nutrition as possible.
Your contribution will:
- Further our research into cutting edge nutrition as it applies to cancer in dogs
- Provide financial assistance for formulation; developing the recipes
- Help Deserving Dog get the equipment and space needed to produce this new product line
But what it will really do is help owners give their dogs a better chance!
You will help battle this disease! With your support it may be possible to have dogs survive cancer that otherwise would have died. In other cases, pet caretakers may be able to spend additional days, weeks or months that would have been denied by the effects of this insidious disease.
The $43,000 we are seeking will go toward research, formulation and production. Should we exceed our initial goal, part of the excess funds will go toward dogs in need whose owners can’t afford to compliment medical treatment with the highest quality nutrition. Should we fall short, we will go in the order of research and then formulation.
Whether or not you contribute, please help us get the word out!
