I need help. I think my dogs are ill from eating K/D vet prescribed dog food. In Jan I took my 14 yrs old dogs to the vet for the normal annual blood work up and was told that the male dog should probably go on low protein dog food because the kidney readings were a little elevated. So I took home a 8 lbs bag that day and put on order for a larger bag since my vet advised it. It has been 3 months now and I am sure that the food is poisoning them due to the symptoms I am seeing in them both but more in the male dog. They both don't really want to eat the food so I have been putting some bits of treats in to get them to eat it since the vet said it would help them in their old age and it was so expensive I don't want to waste it. Both have been walking around with their tails down all day, hunched over, wobbly as they stand, losing weight slowly, some runny poops and smaller in size.

I do not believe that dogs with CKD should be fed maintenance kibble, nor does the article we wrote advocate this. We made it clear that dogs with CKD need a reduced phosphorus diet, and advocated feeding a home made diet that reduces phosphorus, without overly restricting protein. Studies such as the one cited by Hill’s have provided some information to veterinarians on clinical responses to various commercially available foods, but they have not provided information to define the role of dietary protein intake on progressive renal injury.
