Hello Pups and Kittens and welcome back to The Groomer Next Door Podcast. This is episode 182 with Daniel Orrego. This is going to be an instant classic because Daniel is intellegent, he's doing amazing work, and you're going to learn so much. With that said let's learn a bot about KetoPet.
Pursuing a metabolic approach to addressing cancer using nutrition as a central pillar for disease intervention, offers a tremendous benefit, in that it does no harm. In collaboration with Veterinarians, Oncologists and Research Scientists, we continue to validate the anti-cancer effects of nutritional ketosis
Right now, on a 53-acre plot of land outside Austin, Texas, we at KetoPet Sanctuary (KPS) are doing something incredible. This isn’t your typical canine rescue facility. KPS goes out of its way to rescue dogs with incurable, terminal cancer. Our goal isn’t to provide hospice-like treatment for terminal dogs – of course we care for and love the animals, but instead of writing off the canine companions to their fate, we at KPS provide groundbreaking cancer therapy. We’ve been doing this since October of 2014 and the results are astounding. Plus, we guarantee each dog will have a loving forever home, for life.
At KPS, we feed dogs a high-fat, adequate protein, and low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet for all of our canines while they are at the facility. Most nutritional protocols rely on faith, lacking objective metrics from which the diet can be analyzed. However, unlike other diets, the ketogenic diet is one type of nutritional protocol that can be assessed by examining blood glucose and ketone levels. By definition, a ketogenic diet is any diet that produces ketones, so we use blood metrics to determine the efficacy of the diet.
We also control the dogs’ calories to get their bodyfat levels to where we want them to be. In addition to the diet, we use state-of-the-art diagnostics for validation for the state of cancer. We spare no expense and use the diagnostic tools that physicians use to examine humans. This allows us to see where the tumor sites are, what the glucose uptake is in the cancer cells, and how effectively our protocol is reversing cancer. PET/CT scans give us a very strong indicator of these metrics, and we have very tight tracks on the status of cancer in each dog.
Our facility is located in Georgetown, Texas, which is located 27 miles north of downtown Austin. We have a huge, 53-acre plot of land with an outdoor dog park, built-in miniature water park, and an inside play and living area that includes a big-screen TV with surround sound.
