I just wanted to tell you I am so thankful to be able to see your posts. My 9 year old Italian Greyhound is in the very early stages of Kidney disease. Well,at least that is what her vet says. She had blood and urine work done because she drinks so much water. The vet told me her Kidney ALP levels and her BUN levels were high. She gave me Hills K/D kibble but I have heard before how bad kibble can be. I was searching for general information on what to feed her and what not to. I also wondered if there is holistic things I could give her. I was getting so confused with all the different information. But your postings and information seems very helpful! I was also told by Tia`s vet to keep her “low protein”. But from what I read that is not always good for mild kidney disease. She is a fussy eater and she loves meat and chicken. I always gave her the organic if possible. She will eat some veggies as treats. So I am trying to figure out what I can get her to eat that wont hurt her. She does eat Honest Kitchen sometimes so at least I can get her more water content. I am going to look at all your advice and web pages and such to help us out. Thank you for posting all you did!November 28, 2015 at 12:18 pm in reply to: Which food to choose? Vets suggestions are NOT on the best dog foods list! #80697 Report Abuse

Yea,he told me Merrick and Blue products cause kidney problems. I was feeding Merrick grain free. My dog has “crystals” in her urine and UTI. She is antibiotics for 7 days to see if it helps. He told me to not give her foods that are rich. Not sure what that even means! I have too other small dogs. I am just trying to find something healthy for them all now. So much propaganda. Its hard to understand. I lost my first dog to Lymphoma. I am so scared to feed my dogs the wrong thing.
