Hi Fodina — I apologize, but I can’t really advise you more than what I have shared here and others have shared. I’m not a vet nor able to provide medical advice, let alone contradict the advice you’ve been given. Sorry.

Hi Traci — there are always other proteins and others that some here have suggested. It’s just a matter of comparing “like to like” to compare their phosphorus content. If there are allergies/sensitivities to any of the ingredients, go to the next one on your list and choose the “next best option.” Ultimately, you’re just doing your best and there will need to be tradeoffs along the path to get where you are able to both entice Chloe to eat and make the best nutritious choice under your circumstances.

As for the Cushings, it was diagnosed when he was around 12 or 14 as it is a more seniors related disease I think. It remained a factor but it largely retreated once I started cooking homemade food. Ultimately, I chose not to ‘treat’ the Cushings and rather ‘treated’ the symptoms including by hiring a dog walker.

Hi Jo — the Pepcid AC is for the same thing humans use it for: “acid control” which will reduce nausea and improve food drive. Totally up to you if you want to use it combination with a prescription diet dog food.

Hi, wondering what the Pepcid is for (aside for upset stomach) and can I feed some commercial protein restricted dry dog food and make my own wet? Thanks, Jo

My 14 year old best friend, Chloe, is suffering with both Cushing’s and CKD. May I ask if there are any other proteins, besides those listed, that you would consider? She seems to be sensitive to beef, and trout is proving difficult to find. She was eating a fresh, frozen prescription KD food, which she is now refusing, made with lamb. I fear that this may be my last chance to keep her with us a little longer. Also, while reading through comments, I see that Ben also had Cushing’s. Would you be able to share more about that? I truly appreciate you sharing your experience and knowledge. Many thanks again.

Interesting idea. I haven’t heard anyone else post about this and not sure it would work given quantities unless you changed proportions ….

Has anyone figured out an Instant Pot version of this recipe? 🙂
