The food is available in both dry and canned form.My dog is 15, a silky terrier, who has had a few bouts with pancreatitis. She needs a low fat, and probably lower protein dog food. She doesn’t like dry dog food. She is on Hills Science Diet ID low fat GI restore which recently changed the texture of its canned dog food. It is very dry, won’t even absorb any moisture! My dog almost chokes on it. Also, I don’t think the ingredients are very healthy – pork liver, pork by products, corn…! Please, if anyone knows of a good canned dog food – low fat, low protein please let me know. thanks. —PattyThe problem is the minimum protein level allowed by the AAFCO for adult maintenance is 18%, so you’re probably not going to find anything lower than 18% (dry matter) unless you go with a prescription food. If your dog can handle 18% protein some options would be Addiction’s dehydrated line (they have a couple formulas that are 18% protein), Solid Gold Holistique Blendz, Flint River Ranch Senior Plus, Verus Weight Management (this formula actually has 17% stated, would be 18% dry matter), First Mate Trim and Light and First Mate Pacific Ocean Fish Senior/Weight Management.“The author notes that feeding low amounts of phosphorus is a dietary goal for CKD patients, yet does not define what constitutes low phosphorus. A food that contains 0.15 to 0.3% phosphorus (dry matter basis) is recommended for most dogs with chronic kidney disease; Prescription Diet® Canine k/d® contains 0.22% phosphorus (dry matter basis). Because protein is a major source for phosphorus, it is usually necessary to limit dietary protein intake in order to limit dietary phosphorus intake. Following your recommendations to feed a food whose calories come 1/3 from fat, 1/3 from protein, and 1/3 from carbohydrates would result in excessive phosphorus intake, which could be detrimental to patients with CKD. In addition, your recommendation to supplement with fresh protein foods such as raw or cooked meat, eggs, or tripe will contribute further to consumption of excessive dietary phosphorus and worsening of kidney disease.”
