It would be preferable if you could get your dog used to the new diet in one go. If your dog needs more time to get used to the new diet, mix increasing amounts of the new food with the old food over a period of seven days until you have entirely switched to the new diet. Warning: in some cases, transitioning to the new diet can result in a disturbance of the intestinal flora and the stool could look slightly different to how it normally looks. This is nothing serious and in most cases the stool will look normal again within three days.
• Do not food extras in addition to the new diet. Extra snacks are often protein and mineral-rich and could reduce the effect of the kidney diet.
• If you also wish to food your dog wet food, then choose only wet food that is particularly suitable for dogs with chronic kidney disease. Regular wet foods often contain a higher protein and phosphorus content.
• Because dogs with kidney disorders need to urinate more frequently, it is important that they drink sufficient water. Encourage water intake by soaking the kibbles in water.
• Possibly followed by additional veterinary treatment.
