|You might want to ask your vet about a high protein diet. Wellington was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2007. He went through the chemo and is still going strong! The vet recommended a high protein diet which he is still on. We just added protein to his kibble - i.e. cooked chicken, cottage cheese, egg, chicken broth, etc. (Cancer cells like carbohydrates (grow faster) but grow slower with protein). He was able to maintain his weight fairly well during the chemo. (We also switched him to Blue Buffalo kibble which has high protein varieties).
(By the way, his fur did become very thin and sparse during treatment. Not because it fell out but because after he shed it normally it wouldn't grow back in. Finally, several months after he finished the chemo, it started to grow again).
Best wishes to you. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
