Make sure the skin is taken off and there are no bones. Fat may cause pancreatitis and exacerbate a dog's upset stomach and do not add any oils, fats or spices to the bland diet. Offer the bland diet in 3-4 small meals throughout the day for a few days until your dog is feeling better increasing the quantity accordingly..

Canine Cancer Diet
Important foods for dogs with cancer are animal protein If your canine cancer patient is eating a dry commercial dog food many canine nutrionists recommend adding more animal protein such as, Canned sardines, Cottage cheese, Eggs, Beef and Chicken. The first rule for feeding a dog with Cancer is stay away from grains. Fish oil is a good source of cancer fighting Omega 3, 6 and 9. These fatty acids are well studied to help shrink tumors, lower inflammation and provide a host of other health benefits. When fighting cancer, it is recommended your dog has 1000mg of quality fish oil daily for every 20 pounds of dog. Some people like to use flax seed oil instead of fish oil, as per the Flax seed oil and Cottage cheese diet proposed by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist in 1951. Organic flax seed oil and cottage cheese must be eaten together to be effective, since one triggers the properties of the other to be released. If your dog won’t eat it, use fish oil

NOTE: Consult your veterinarian to make sure your dog is healthy enough for a high protein, high fat diet (especially for those suffering from pancreas, liver, kidney, or spleen issues).
