HI, just wanted to tell you there is a lot of info on the internet regarding dog with kidney disease or in renal failure. What to do, what not to do, and lots of homemade diets you can give them. The kidney diet the vets recommend is very difficult to get them to eat and there is also a difference of opinion regarding low protein. It seems the main thing is to lower the phosphorus. Here is an example of a homemade diet for kidney disease.
Ground Beef with Rice Recipe
This homemade kidney diet for dogs recipe is full of good protein sources and low in phosphorous, which makes it great for dogs with kidney disease.
2 pounds lean ground beef
12-15 egg whites
1 pound of green beans
2 cups of rice
2 of acorn squash
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup of fresh parsley
Pinch of fresh ground pepper
The first thing to do is to cook rice. Put it in a boiling water and let it simmer for 15 minutes. While the rice cooks, you can wash and chop the parsley. When the rice is done, just add parsley to it and mix.
Cut the squash in half and get rid of the seeds. Then cut it into strips and peel the skin off. Cut the squash into small cubes and put it in a pot with water. A medium pot filled to the half is best. Let the water boil and then let the squash simmer for 20 minutes. Steam the green beans.
Fry the ground beef in a frying pan for 10 minutes and season it with ground pepper. Let the meat cool off and don’t drain the fat.
Dog Kidney Disease Diet 101 – Evidence-based Guidelines on FeedingWhen all ingredients cool off and became warm, put squash, meat and green beans in a blender or food processor and puree the mixture until it becomes smooth. Add the puree to the rice mixture.
In the same pan where you fried the beef, melt the coconut oil and then add the egg whites and scramble them for around 4 minutes. Add the egg whites to other ingredients and stir them in. Let it cool off a bit and serve it to your pooch.
There are lots of others out there, but the main thing is to keep the dog eating. I also found in my research a product that is supposed to totally turn around a dog in kidney failure; great testimonials and money back guarantee. Unfortunately for us, by the time I discovered this and ordered it, it was too late to help Matt. But if you are interested, go to Pet Wellbeing and look for Kidney Support Gold.
Hope this helps.

I commented on your post for the call last Saturday. I’d also like to say that I’m listening to some of that call again and it came to me “massage” for Maddie. It might help her blood flow which might help her. There is such a thing as canine massage.
Also there is a dog food place where they make good quality dog food for dogs. It’s called Just for Dogs I think. I’m not sure but they might make special kidney food for dogs. Maybe they ship. I don’t know if they do or not. Maybe there is a similar place near wherever you live.

Thank you for posting this information. A day or two before you posted this, I worked with a dog that started to have a minor kidney issue. I typically don’t get any e-mail notification from forum unless I checked the checkbox, but this one came through for some reason, so I believe this is a synchronicity and I thanked the universe and shared the information (not with names) with my friend/client. She has been able to implement and sounds like they are happy with the food. So thank you sharing this information on the forum!
She found sound healing for kidney issues that she is now using with her dog. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbIqAA4TGm8 She seems to be happy with it but I cannot comment, but sharing nonetheless for you to decide.
She originally reached out to me with her dog wetting her bed as well as other issues. I was able to help her implement energy solution and so far, the dog’s issues are improving and haven’t wetted her bed since. She’s been implementing more than the food and sound so I cannot say if they will help independently, but collectively, they seem to be very helpful and soothing to this particular dog.
