Introduction

Sadly, around 6 million dogs develop cancer every year in the U.S. and Canada [1]. Canine Biologics offers the optimal nutrition they need for their best quality of life. Pet parents and veterinarians finally have an enhanced, integrated solution specifically designed to help their best furry friend battle cancer.

The diagnosis is devastating, but it doesn’t have to mean that a dog’s best days are over. Canine Biologics was founded because we believe that dogs with cancer can, with the proper support, continue to have the energy and vitality to run, play, and love as they always have as they battle this devastating disease.

Veterinarian Testimonials

Adena Robertson
DVM, Medical Director: 4 Paws Pet Hospital
“As a veterinarian, I see nutrition as a core component to overall animal health. I believe this company provides a valuable step that has been largely ignored.”
Esther Chon
DVM, DACVIM (Oncology)
“Canine Biologics offers a great supportive dietary option for our cancer patients. Their customer service is exceptional, making the whole process easy for both the clinician and pet parents. They truly care about their product and for enhancing the lives of veterinary cancer patients.”

Problem

An estimated 500,000 dogs per month develop cancer in North America [2]. Current diet options in the market are extremely limited, specifically when it comes to nutrition formulated to support dogs battling cancer. Pet food companies exhibit little product development or marketing in the highly specific, acutely-felt cancer space.

  • Nutrition is increasingly recognized as critical to optimal health outcomes.
  • Veterinarians have limited viable recommendations.
  • Pet parents increasingly want the best nutrition for their dogs.

Solution

integrated-nutrition-system

We believe that enhanced nutrition to support dogs battling cancer was severely lacking before Canine Biologics. We are dedicated exclusively to developing nutrition systems designed to support these dogs in the fight of their lives.

Our team of nutrition and oncology-focused, PhD-degreed veterinarians and scientists have taken an evidence-based approach to develop our three-part Integrated Nutrition System, a cross-balanced product and plan to meet each dog’s specific needs.

integrated-nutrition-system

This includes:

  • 100% Human-Grade Food
  • Specialized Supplements + Vitamins & Minerals
  • Wild-Caught Salmon Oil (Omega-3 Fatty Acids)

We developed this approach based on dozens of peer-reviewed research studies and clinical trials; formulating the nutrition required to support the digestive, immune, and other physiologic systems of dogs fighting cancer.

The science behind our approach is complex, but the results are simple.

  • We aim to enhance the absorption of nutrients to maintain weight and muscle mass.
  • Improved quality of life for the dog.
  • May make cancer treatments more effective.

New Products

We’re in the process of developing specially formulated dog treats to complement our existing nutrition system, additional recipes with alternate proteins, tumor-type specific supplements and a liquid diet system for dogs who require tube feeding.

Our significant product roadmap aims to help dogs with cancer in many new ways!
