Female Rottweiler with kidney failure, refusing to eat diet. Help!

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

I have a female Rottweiler who we think is about 10 years old (we have had her 9 years this coming May).  She was diagnosed last week with Renal Kidney failure.  She has been on Hills K/D diet for 5 days now and is pretty much refusing to touch it.  I am able to force-feed her pills so she is getting most of her meds (we’re having trouble with the powder formula), but I am questioning the food.  I would like to do something natural or be able to add something to her diet but my vet is saying she needs to be on this strict kidney diet.  However, if she’s refusing to eat it, it’s not doing her any good.  We have tried the kibble and the wet food and she doesn’t care for either.  This morning I even tried 1 TBSP. of low sodium vegetable broth and about ½ TSP. of Gerber baby food green beans (which she normally loves) mixed in the wet food and she still would not eat it.  She has always had a very sensitive stomach and throws up easily so I hesitate to try too many unusual and different foods.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,



8 year Rottweiler with kidney disease. Need recipes

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

I have an 8 year rottweiler with kidney disease – diagnosed about 6 weeks ago.  He is taking Azydol and Rubenal.  He was prescribed Hills Science Dog Food/KD.  He is refusing to eat the dog food.  I have found some recipies for making food for him myself, but most have too much protein in them.  First of all, is there anything I can put over/mix with the KD food to make it more appealing to him?  Do you have a recipe for food I can make myself?  Thanks for your help.
