Renal Recipe - 5 1/2 month puppy

Hi,

My puppy has a renal issue ( cause which hasn't been diagnosed yet). We are trying to get a renal diet going for him but our vet is clueless. We have gone to 4 vets in the past 15 days, and the current vet is apparently one of the best. He just recommended us to his shop where the idiot at the shop just threw a pack of Cibau regular puppy food for him. After a huge altercation and constant probing they randomly suggested Hills K/D.

Now I didn't buy it since they were clueless about dog nutrition. Now being in India, its a tough call to get a dog nutrition expert. I want to home cook meals for my puppy. With his renal issues, he needs a low protein diet, however, with him being in his growing age, he will still need a decent amount.

Anyone here have a similar problem. Any help here would be fantastic.

Thanks a ton

Your dog doesn't need low protein. He needs low phosphorus with high quality protein.

Banshee's thread has quite a bit of info for other sites and supplement as well as many people posting that have gone thru the same thing

This is a diet I'm feeding my 5.5 month currently with a renal condition. Would be great if I could get feedback if its good.

Morning : 2 egg whites with a wheat tortilla ( made at home. We call it chapati.

Afternoon:
150g of white rice
30-50g of chicken thigh or chicken liver
a few pieces of pumpkin/carrot/squash/potato : just rotating veggies
1 tsp vegetable oil
1tsp clarified butter
1 pod garlic.

Night :

Same meal as above, with a change in vegetable. Also mix in 40g of lentils into it.

Does this meal seem wholesome enough, or do I need to feed him more/less or move around any nutrient.

Thanks
