My dog’s latest checkup showed her sodium levels were elevated which the vet said could lead to kidney problems. We currently feed her Origen. Does anyone know of a high quality low sodium dog food and/or treats?
I make jerky treats for dogs and cats and they have less than 100 milligrams of salt per ounce. Please check them out if you’d like.

Hi BeachBumBernice –
I have never come across a comprehensive list of high quality, low sodium dog foods. You’re going to need to talk with your vet about what the minimum and maximum levels of sodium your dog should have each day are based on her condition. Your best option would be to formulate a balanced homemade diet so you are in complete control of sodium levels. Your next best option would be to start calling companies that manufacture quality foods you’d be interested in and ask for the sodium levels in their food – typically companies don’t disclose this information on packaging or their website so the only way to find out is to call. I’m going to assume you’ll probably be looking for a food with around 0.06% – 0.30% sodium as these are the minimum levels permissible by the AAFCO for maintenance and growth, respectively.
