Includes Prescription Dog Food and Commercial Brands
Finally, your search is over! We've compiled this comprehensive list of KD dog food brands (also often referred to as "kidney disease dog food" or "renal dog food").
Our list includes prescription dog food, plus many commercial low protein dog food recipes as further options for renal failure in dogs, or other conditions where a high protein dog food may not be the best choice.
After this daunting exercise, we believe Dog Food Scoop is likely the best dog food resource you'll find for comparing KD dog food brands and other low protein dog food for canine kidney failure, or different dog illnesses.
Now that we've done the grunt work for you, you can kick back and relax, and explore your various options!
Note: The low protein dog food diet is generally not recommended for healthy animals. Please first consult with your veterinarian before deciding whether low protein dog food is right for your dog.
*** Prescription dog food brands are available by vet prescription only. ***
A holistic veterinarian, a homeopathic vet, or a dog nutritionist, with experience in canine renal failure may be able to offer you the most valuable advice and support during this difficult time.
Prescription KD Dog Food Brands
Please note: The following list of prescription dog food comprises all reduced protein recipes.
Not all are designed specifically for canine renal disease. They are listed here as options to discuss with your veterinarian.
Although we have not yet completed formal dog food reviews on the following prescription KD dog food brands, Dog Food Scoop is less than impressed with the quality of these so-called "prescription dog foods" or with these dog food companies' overall philosophy!
If you decide the healthiest dog food for your pup's condition is homemade dog food, it's essential that you work with an expert on canine renal disease and KD dog food.
This newly released book by Patricia Schenck, DVM Phd., Veterinary Nutritionist - Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets - includes NINE homemade dog food recipes specifically formulated for canine renal disease.
