Q. My dog has cancer, he's on a high protein diet (natures valley instinct) salmon meal..but, VERY LAZY will it hurt him in long run kidneys or muscles?

A. If he has cancer, kidney failure theoretical scenario is the last thing you should worry about. high protein diet will keep his muscles strong and healthy which is usually what you want in cancer patients as they tend to lose weight and have muscle wasting.
All in all, the diet is fine, you shouldn't worry about the high protein diet.
