15 year old Maltese with advanced heart failure - needed very low sodium diet due to lasix medication. First low sodium food he hated because it was too hard to chew (he has several teeth missing at his age). Tried the dry NF food as an alternative and he likes the taste just fine but the size of the food is too big for his liking. He can break the kibble down with effort but after a few minutes I think it hurts his teeth and he gives up. I ended up cutting each piece of food in half for him so he would finish his 3/4 cup feeding. After months of this, I thought there has to be a better way so I tried the canned food thinking it would be of similar content.
He likes the flavor and I mash up the dry with the canned and add a little water to create a "hash" if you will. He devours it but now I learn the canned ingredients are WAY different and by-product is the largest ingredient after water. I am really sad to learn this - it almost seems they should be sold under...
My dog has Renal disease. We started with Hills PD kidney formula. My pup didn't like it much. Our Vet recommended this product and after some research, reading reviews we bought this. My pup really enjoys this food. It even has a pleasant aroma that is appealing to both the pet owner as well as the pet.
My dog has been eating this food for about a year. He seems to like it. Even better, his blood work showed his kidney function is almost back to normal!
He recently had most of his teeth pulled (5 or 6 teeth left) and can no longer eat dry food. So I soak this food in water for several hours before each meal and he has happily continued to eat it. He won't eat the canned kidney food so I will continue to moisten this food, it is worth the extra step to know that he is healthy.
