    Vet diagnosed our 8 yr old Tibetan terrier mix as being on the edge of kidney disease. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Vet wants her to lose weight, limit her protein to 20-25%, and fat to 10%.

    Hi Blaire-
    Sorry to hear about your pup. I just did a search on Chewy for senior healthy weight recipes and came up with this:

    Looks like Wellness Complete Healthy Senior Food might be a good option for her. Wellness is a highly regarded brand on this site.

    There are a couple of others that might fit your needs as well. Did the vet recommend a prescription diet for her?

    Yes, Royal Canin, which is not my first choice! The weight is easy–my husband is limiting treats to one a day instead of over ten! He finally gets it. She needs to weigh around 27 lbs, is 32 now.

    Just checked the Chewy link, Wellness looks perfect! Thank you so much!

    You’re very welcome! Hope it works out. Btw, I feed one of my cats a prescription Royal Canin dry food. He’s done very well on it.

    Limiting treats is hard! Our pets can be so darn convincing.

    Best wishes to you!
