Kidney Support Recipe
Developed by veterinarian Dr. Kim Freeman, this highly digestible and tasty diet is moderate in protein and low in phosphorus. If your dog has severe kidney issues, please consult your veterinarian as our formula may have too much protein and require an added binder like Rx Vitamins Phos-Bind.
The basic proteins are beef, chicken breast, and egg whites (there’s no ground bone or organ meat, to reduce phosphorus). We’ve increased the percentage of veggies with a mix that emphasizes a good balance of nutrients—particularly B vitamins and arginine, which both directly support kidney function. We use barley as a grain for its effects in traditional Chinese medicine—for example, draining unhealthy “dampness” and supporting the Yin side of the body that is often deficient in kidney disease.
