Last January, Myndi was diagnosed with kidney disease - not kidney failure. Her vet put her on Hill's K/D (canned - she won't eat dry), and she took to it right away and I had no problem getting her to eat it. I added veggies to it for one of her 2 daily meals and she always polished it off. Well - I guess she finally got sick of it, because now she refuses to eat but a couple of bites, no matter what I add to it. I've tried just a spoonful of a more yummy dog food on top - she eats that and leaves the K/B. Tried a little beef gravy on it - no dice. The only thing I can get her to eat, other than a dog food that she shouldn't, is chicken. When her vet first put her on it, she told me she would research different foods if she wouldn't eat the K/D, but that was never a problem. I'm going to call her Monday, and take her up on the offer, tho.
I read that protein should be a max of 23% in a low protein diet, yet every dog food label that claims to be lower in protein, lists a minimum percentage, so who knows how high it actually is?
In the meantime, does anyone know of a low protein dog food - must be canned - that I can tempt her with? Or does anyone have a home recipe that would be low protein? I'm at my wit's end, trying to figure out what I can feed her, that won't worsen her condition.
