Low Protein Diet Help Needed For A Friend.

Recommended Posts

My friends' 14 year old female Greyhound has been diagnosed with Glomerular Disease. Her albumin and protein levels are both very low. Does anyone have any ideas on a palatable home made low protein diet to feed her? She has lost weight, but is starting to eat again, and they want to give her food that will entice her to eat and keep the weight on. She is a very sweet girl, and her owners want to make her as happy as possible. Good tasting food will go a long way on that count.


Thanks in advance for any help that GT can give this special girlie.

At 14 I'd feed her whatever she wants!


This diet is not too bad for protein:


5# beef, chicken or turkey

5# potatoes, boiled with skins on, then mashed

2C rice boiled with 4C water

1T garlic

2# green beans


Boil beef and let cool, put thru food processor. Cook green beans, put thru food processor. Mix all together and add 1t cod liver oil and 1t sterlized bone meal to each feeding.


Regular feeding amount around 4C. This will usually last 3-4 days.
