I got this question from blog reader Kristen yesterday:
I have a question for anyone who might have experience with this. One of my dogs completely crashed health-wise last week and this weekend was diagnosed with a liver condition (by the most excellent Rachael Nuzzo at the emergency clinic on Frontage). Anyway, it seems he’ll have to be maintained on a low-protein diet. Has anyone any experience with any of the foods that would be appropriate? Any suggestions on on-going care or recommendations?
We have another vet appointment this afternoon, I was just interested in some real-world dog-owner tidbits, if anyone had anything to offer. Thanks!
First of all Kristin: Do keep us posted on your dog’s condition. Unfortunately I do not have any relevant experiecnce with this issue. Low protein seems like a tough order to fill for a dog when meat is a staple in their diets.
What do you say readers? Anyone have suggestions on how Kristin can feed her ailing pooch low-protein cuisine?
