    My 13.5 year old Terrier X has failing kidneys and I am doing sub Q fluids every 24 hours. His appetite is not that great and I am supposed to be feeding him low protein/high carbs, but he is getting picky and he doesn’t like any of the canned “special diet” food I have tried. Any suggestions for getting some carbs in him besides sweet potatoes? I’ve tried rice and pasta and he’ll only eat it occasionally. He is getting pretty skinny and I am running out of ideas……
    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Dusty Bandit –

    I’d recommend going over to the review section of DFA and posting this question – address it to Shawna (I’m not sure that she checks the forums often but she’d definitely see it if you posted it there) – you could just put it in the “off topic” area. She’s the resident kidney (and everything thing else) expert.
