Subject: Re: low protein diet

First of all, the senior foods are still way too
high, assuming you mean TF for Seniors. The meat
baby foods are also very high in protein. With
renal disease, the kidneys can't process protein
(or only in very low quantities). I know that he
needs SOME protein. Champ is now eating a low
protein food, Hill's K/D. I don't have the bag
but it seems it is around 7% protein,
significantly lower than the TF he's used to..."

Wow, Katherine, I didn't realize the diet had to be that low in protein.
The other factor is actually the amount of protein in grams he is
allowed a day.
According to the info Sukie posted about the amount of protein in
whipping cream- it is 0.1g of protein per teaspoon (or 5cc). It is about
2% protein- but that didn't take into account the water content.

So, let Champ enjoy his food, he deserves it!

Hope things get easier for you both.
