Homemade Diet Recipes for Dogs With Kidney Disease

Printer-Friendly Format

For dogs that suffer from kidney disease, a proper diet is vital to slow the progression of the disease and to prevent toxins from building-up in the pet's system. With some dogs, getting them to eat a commercial renal-support diet can be a challenge, as can the cost of such foods to some owners. If you are inclined to cook for your dog, here are some excellent recipes that can be used as substitutes for commercial prescription diets. Simply adjust the amount of ingredients proportionally based on your dog's weight.
