Renal failure

Post by GMH on Tue Nov 03 2015, 12:03

Hello All,

I am looking for a little advise from those with previous experience of renal failure.

Our 14 year old (and still naughty !) girl Laurel, was diagnosed with early stage renal failure this summer and put on a renal diet.
At first, she seemed to enjoy the new food but over the past few months she has gone off it to the point that she does not even like it mixed with other food.

She has lost a kilo lately due to this. We know that she has not lost her appetite as she will wolf down normal food.
We are now at the stage where we say to ourselves that she is nearly 15 and should eat well for her remaining time rather than having a constant battle at dinner time.

I would be really interested in peoples views and also if anyone with experience can recommend foods which are low in protiens and phosphates.

Thanks for reading !

First of all, I'm really sorry to hear of the problems you're having. It must be incredibly hard to deal with the fact of Laurel's condition on its own, but to have to battle with diet must make the stress all that much more.

Have you had a google? There is info out there if you search 'dog renal failure diet'. This, for example, is interesting:

http://dogaware.com/health/kidney.html

It's got ideas for home made diets, so although the brands in the prepared food they mention might not be available unless you're in the States, there are still things you could try.

I hope that helps and that you manage to stabilise her. Good luck x
