Can Cancer In Dogs Be Prevented?

Yes, of course cancer in dogs can be prevented.  Unfortunately, solid, practical information about exactly how to prevent dog cancer is very rare, just as it is in human health circles.  What’s available instead are extremely remote causation factors, vague allusions and red herrings. 

Of course, the self-serving, baseless “early detection saves lives” admonition is prominent too. More about that later.

Recently I did a little research on what’s being said by the “experts” about the possibility of preventing cancer in dogs.  Almost every dog, pet or veterinarian-related site on the internet has addressed this topic.  They all pretty much have the same invariably ineffectual advice.  Some of the factors listed below are the most common.   

The first blind alley

When I searched on “Can cancer be prevented in dogs?”, the first website that came up is Morris Animal Foundation’s top 12 things you can do to prevent cancer in your dog.  Inexplicably, the first thing on their list is “avoiding second-hand smoke”.  Primary lung cancer is one of the rarest forms of dog cancer, accounting for only 1% of all of dog cancers.  So why does this appear as #1?  One can only wonder. 

Secondhand smoke is unhealthy, to be sure.  If anyone reading that is inspired to start doing their smoking outside or away from their pets, it’s going to be healthier for them, for sure.  But if you really want to empower people, do you top your list with a factor that may cause a very rare form of cancer?  I say no.


Everyone seems to “know” that obesity is a factor in canine cancer.  There’s no doubt it figures into cancer causation somewhere.  But is it actually a CAUSE?  No, it’s not.  It’s a consequence, or an effect, just like cancer itself.  The real cause is further upstream.  That would be the diet, of course, so at least this sends us looking in the right direction.

If the owner of an obese dog decides to feed less of the food that has caused the obesity, this will naturally decrease the chances of the dog contracting cancer.  It won’t be because the dog is slimmer, however.  It will be because the body is less polluted.  That may seem like a minor distinction, but it’s not. 

Does sunshine cause cancer in dogs?

Almost all sites list “limit exposure to sunshine” as a prevention factor.  Apparently, skin cancer is falsely blamed on sunshine in dogs just as it is in humans.  In truth, the sun does not cause cancer in ANY species.  This is evidenced by the fact that human skin cancer is more common in places not known for abundant sunshine than in those which are.  Theorists hypothesize that this is because people residing in un-sunny locales just aren’t used to the sun and get burned more often. 

However, this idea does not jibe with recent research that shows lifestyle factors, especially DIET, are far more important than exposure.  It’s not sunshine, but acidic wastes and toxins coming through the skin that actually cause skin cancer.  This accounts for why there is such a strong correlation between the chemicalization of foods that has happened in the last 100 years and the increase in human cancers, including skin cancer .  For evidence of this obvious truth with regard to dog skin cancers, we only have to ask why researchers aren’t seeing wolves with skin cancer?  Wolves spend more time outside than domestic dogs by an enormous measure.  What wolves DON’T do, is eat commercial dog food.

These so-called experts are proposing a lot of speculative nonsense regarding dog cancer. But sunshine as a causative factor has to be the most ridiculous.  The reason why skin cancers are so prevalent in dogs has NOTHING to do with exposure to sunshine.  It’s because, as a species, they are very prone to eliminate superfluous wastes through their skin.  That’s why “allergies” are prevalent in dogs as well.  It’s all about the waste elimination system in the body becoming overloaded and looking for alternative outbound channels. 

What is cancer, anyway?

I hope by now that you’re beginning to see how this information is actually worse than no information at all.  If you were left to figure out cancer completely on your own, you’d do a better job at pinning down the relevant factors.

Cancer is simply a body that is so overloaded with toxic, morbid wastes that its cells must adapt themselves to those that can survive in a dirty, anaerobic environment. That’s all!  Cancer is your dog’s body’s attempt to adapt to an internal environment that’s so polluted that it can’t function normally.  It is the body’s effort to compensate for and accommodate unrelenting harmful influences.  Cancer is NEVER something that attacks.  It builds from within, just like all other forms of disease.  To understand this concept better, please check out this video where Dr. Thomas Lodi explains the function of disease. 

So once again we see that waste is the problem.  And what could represent a more concentrated form of waste than undigested foods?  The only things worse are medicines, herbs, supplements and oils, but these are given in small quantities.  FOOD is the biggie.  All forms of pollution, including in the air, water and household environment, are extremely dilute by comparison. 

Back to the list…


Don’t we all do everything we can already to avoid exposing our dogs to toxins?  I have to think most of us do.  But what are we to do about the exposure we can’t do anything about?  Things like air pollution, lawn chemicals in public parks, mandated vaccines and other unpreventable contact our dogs have with toxins? 

The “experts” on “preventing cancer” know that we can’t do anything about that.  Whether they realize it or not, their aim is to make us think this means we can’t do anything about cancer, either.  That’s certainly what the cancer establishment would like us to think.  If this is news to you, I exhort you to educate yourself via any one of the thousands of books that have called out the cancer industry for its utter failure to even feign interest in prevention. Again, I must ask you to ponder: what industry works to put itself out of business?    

The good news

All of that aside, there is some REALLY good news for those of us willing to feed our dogs real, biologically appropriate foods.  There is absolutely striking research done by Dr. T. Colin Campbell that reveals how strong the correlation is between a good diet and outcomes following exposure to toxins. 

He cites in his book “Whole” that he and his team took a group of mice and separated them into two groups.  To one group, he fed the equivalent of the human high protein diet (which is biologically inappropriate in the extreme, if you didn’t already know). To the other group, he fed protein in the quantities appropriate for the subject species (and interestingly, rats are closer to dogs than humans in this regard).  Then he exposed both of them to carcinogens.  In the group that was fed moderate protein, NONE got cancer.  In the high protein group, 100% either got cancer or pre-cancerous lesions.  The outcome of the study may be an indictment of protein overconsumption specifically, but it also gives us a glimpse at just how powerful diet is at determining whether cancer will happen.  Here’s a video about Dr. Campbell’s study.

Anyone concerned about not being able to control their dog’s exposure to toxins would be foolish to ignore such significant information.  As I mentioned before, environmental toxins are extremely dilute compared to what accumulates in a dog’s body from eating indigestible foods every day.  Food that cannot be digested is TOXIC, and everything that is toxic is carcinogenic. 

Is cancer in dogs genetic?

Another factor that the sick dog establishment and all its money-motivated allies would like to blame is genes. There are apparently some dog breeds that are more prone than others to cancer. However, disease is no more caused by genes than sunshine.  But it’s yet another way to keep you thinking that there’s nothing you can do to prevent cancer in your dog.  It can only be of use to know whether your dog’s breed is prone to cancer IF you have the knowledge to stop the real causes.  If your dog’s breed is among those, s/he’s going to be even more dependent on you to do the right thing. 

Cancer in dogs or humans is never inherited

What most people don’t realize is that genes do not determine whether disease will happen.  Only true causative factors can do that.  When those factors are not present, disease does not manifest, no matter how genetically predisposed a dog is.  Genes may determine the TYPE of disease that any given individual may manifest. But they do not determine whether it will happen or when.  Even the American Cancer Society openly concedes that “only a small portion of all cancers are inherited.”  And that’s a gross exaggeration.  In truth, precisely ZERO cancers are inherited.  According to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, babies being born with cancer is “unusual”.  When it happens, it’s because the baby was assaulted in utero by the mother’s toxifying lifestyle habits.  So even then it’s not truly an inheritance, but a consequence of the environment the baby was nurtured in, including what it was fed.

Early detection of cancer in dogs

In response to the general public’s increasing interest in disease prevention, the human cancer industry has not changed the focus of their research.  Instead, it has attempted to blur the distinction between detection and prevention, calling some of their screening procedures “preventative”.  There’s no way that these procedures can be called preventative because they do not correct the causes of cancer! 

It’s no different where our dogs are concerned.   Detection is not prevention.  There is much more that we can do besides feed what vets want us to feed and get our dogs in for regular screenings.  That serves industry, not dog owners. 

The cancer industry suffers when cancer is prevented.  It benefits greatly, however, when cancer is detected ‘early’. Early detection allows them to pad their “survivor” statistics. Plus it gives them more time during which to sell their life-depleting therapies to frightened dog owners.  Further, very clear evidence has arisen from human studies that early detection DOES NOTHING to improve outcomes.

No industry works to put itself out of business. Even insiders admit that the cancer establishment is indifferent or hostile to the idea of preventing cancer. The growing canine cancer establishment is no exception.

Drum roll, please! 

So how exactly can cancer be prevented?  What secret do I have that has eluded the efforts of a multi-billion dollar cancer research establishment?  Read on.


  1. Feed RMF
  2. Regular Fasting
  3. No Vaccines
  4. Understand and cooperate with symptoms instead of medicating them
  5. No “preventative” pharmaceuticals
  6. Limit interaction with vets
  7. Provide exercise, fresh air, pure water, and psychological security

If you have questions about anything in this list, they are all thoroughly answered in the ebook.

The truth doesn’t make anybody any money 

We who pursue the truth about health and disease without loyalty to any industry have known for a long time what the real causes of cancer are.  As I alluded to earlier, cancer is simply the end product of a long disease process. It begins with simple irritation, proceeds to inflammation, and progresses until the cells themselves must make the sacrifice to adapt to ongoing harmful influences.  Waste that is retained and accumulates in the body is the cause of all of these processes. Accumulation is what happens when elimination channels are taxed beyond their capacity. 

It’s all about the pie-hole

Once this realization is made, it becomes a very easy matter to prevent cancer and even reverse it in most cases.  This always comes back to DIET. The source of most of the accumulated waste in a domestic dog’s body is indigestible foods.  Although other unusable ingested substances play a minor role, diet is far and away the most important factor in cancer causation.  I call it lying by omission when dog and human cancer prevention “experts” talk endlessly about genetics and environmental toxins. These factors are so remote next to diet that they don’t even deserve mention. 

If you have interest in understanding cancer and how it should properly be approached in humans, please check out this video of an audio session taped by TC Fry in the 80s as part of his “Achieving Health” series.

Please put this information to work for your dog

I hope you feel empowered by this knowledge.  Whether you’re just trying to prevent cancer in your dog or s/he has been diagnosed already, I would highly recommend putting the above conditions in place.  Nature heals, and all we have to do if we want to give our dogs the best shot at healing is emulate nature.
