Looking for a low sodium canned dog food for my cavalier with CHF. Any suggestions? She currently loves Weruva human style canned. I’ve tried Great Life Essentials, but she’s not as crazy about that.
Home cooked is not really practical for me but I might consider the frozen raw foods.

Frozen raw like Darwin’s may be the way to go. It usually has lower sodium levels. The problem with sodium is that pet food companies aren’t required to put it on the label, so they don’t. That means if you want to know the sodium level you have to ask. And if you don’t ask the right question they may tell you their minimum, which has next to nothing to do with how much is actually in there. You have to ask for the actual or the maximum, and make sure that they understood your question, and that’s if you actually get to talk to a live person.
Don’t try Fresh Pet. Everyone comments on how salty it is.
