My 11 yr old Cocker has kidney disease and had a kidney removed in April ’19. He is fed Holistic Select Adult Anchovy & Sardine and Salmon Meal Recipe along with a Salmon oil Supplement & (1) Nutramax Dasuquin with MSM daily. Is this the Best Dog for kidney Disease?
I would consult your vet.
I think a prescription /therapeutic diet would be the best choice.
Usually dogs with kidney disease require a low protein diet/ prescription food to be comfortable, along with prescription medications.
I agree with Anon, talk to your vet, did your vet mention a diet for your dog?
His oncologist does not recommend any kind of special diet. After doing my own research on this website and others, I would like to alter/supplement his diet in the best possible way. That is why I was asking for Best dog food for Kidney Disease recommendations.
All I can say is low protein diet. If you want to give him some homemade diet you can use one boiled egg and rice or cottage cheese. I don’t know what brand I would say to dry but you need a lower protein diet. Did the vet suggest low protein??

Here is an article for you to read
Please check out Canine Kidney Disease Facebook Group. It’s a public group so you can browse it without joining if you prefer. There are many very knowledgeable folks on there willing to help. Some feed prescription food, some don’t. With kidney disease the appetite can get very poor and many dogs won’t go near the prescription stuff. There are low-phosphorus food ideas, as well as supplement recommendations. For example, many have had success with Azodyl. Best of luck to you!
