dog's ketones

Keto for dogs? Although the keto diet has gained popularity as a diet for humans, it’s also used for dogs too! Studies show that the ketogenic diet can help shrink tumors (particularly malignant gliomas) by enhancing the effects of radiation treatments.

If your dog is on keto – regardless of the reason – you’ll probably want to check his ketone levels to make sure he’s in ketosis. If you’re using blood tests, try using the needle on the tip of the ear.
