|RICO||We were just about to switch him to raw too. I just got the test results back this morning that confirmed, so I have just been doing my research, looking into what my options are as far as food. But I think I am going to go with THK, he hasn't been doing well on kibble for about a month now anyway.|

I too had a dog like yours which I fed raw but it was pricy b/c I had to get a small butcher shop to grind sirloin tip roasts with all of the fat removed!
I think HK would be ideal for your dog. I'd start with the Zeal and once your dog is regulated for a while on it, you MAY be able to rotate with the Preference/fresh lean meat option.
Jennie O and Purdue have turkey that is 93%/7% which would be ideal. But watch grocery store beef, even the ground round, as they tend to be "fatty".
Your "Fur Baby" needs to be supplemented for this. If you'd like to PM me I can give you the names of items that would be very helpful for this condition.

|Zookeep||I think you need to discuss your choices with your vet.|

|RICO||I was actually looking into feeding The Honest Kitchen Preference (with low-fat/lean meats) or Zeal. Would that be sufficient for what I need?|

|Zookeep||Look for the senior or mature varieties of a brand you like. Many have 12 percent or less fat. Some are as low as 8 percent fat.|

Low-Fat food for a dog with pancreatitis?
My 2yo GSD has been diagnosed with pancreatitis and IBD. Vet recommended Royal Canin Low Fat and Science Diet ID Low Fat... As I am not a fan of either after reading ingredient list. I mentioned to my vet about thinking of starting to feed raw and she said that's the worst thing I could do right now. So I am looking for any other options for a low-fat food, whether its homemade or store bought. I'm pretty picky on what I feed him, so anything corn gluten, by-product meal, ect, is out of the question. Help please!
