These recipes are low in protein and phosphorus to help manage the symptoms of dogs with chronic kidney disease, liver shunt disorders, struvite and cytine urinary stones and crystal problems. Due to the nature of targeted medical formulations, they may not meet AAFCO or NRC standards and should ONLY be used under the guidance of your veterinarian. To support heart health with a low protein diet, the plan includes taurine supplementation.
Although these meal plans are formulated to manage these various medical conditions, they are not a substitute for medical monitoring or intervention. Your dog should be checked regularly by your veterinarian. Dogs with urinary crystals and/or stones should have the urine monitored every 3 months during the first year on these diets, or as directed by your veterinarian. Dogs with liver shunt and kidney disorders should be monitored based on your veterinarian's recommendations.
We offer advice on meal plan preparation, storage and feeding directions. All medical concerns about your dog's diet need to be discussed between you and your veterinarian.
