Liver / Kidney Disease Diet for Pets

It is best to avoid raw diets in pets with liver and/or kidney disease as the body’s ability to filter out toxins may be compromised. Generally, a diet low in fat, low to moderate in protein and easily digested carbs are the goal. Additionally, specific supplements added for liver support are mentioned here as well.

It is best to have guidance from your veterinarian as specific cases will be treated differently. What may ideal for one pet may be deleterious for another. In some cases, prescription formulated diets may be a good option.

2 cups Protein: Eggs, (whole), cottage cheese, chicken, turkey, fish

3 cups Carbohydrate: Cooked rice, stamed vegetables, (especially broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus)

1 tbsp Calcium powder

1 tbsp powder vitamin/mineral supplement

1 tsp fish oil or flax oil

Add to each meal: 250 – 500 mg Vitamin C, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, 10-20 mg coenzyme Q, SAM-e (for liver patients. Purchase a veterinary formula such as Dasuquin), 100 mg vitamin E.
