Hi Debbe — I posted this reply to another reader last year who had the same question: “The best I can find is from the following site: “There is 263 mg amount of Phosphorus in 100 gram portion amount of Game meat, rabbit, domesticated, composite of cuts, cooked, roasted.”
In sum, not the worst, but far from the best. Try the fish instead.

Thank you Cory. I have to say, every vet we make a “believer” out of we can do in our own kitchens is a huge leap forward for us all. Thank you for sharing your story and the support of your vet to the list. Best of luck to you over the next 3 months. Let us know how it goes.

It’s human-grade food without preservatives. Same rules apply for any meat in your fridge. I wouldn’t recommend more than 3 days, so freeze it in smaller batches as necessary.

I don’t have a lot of suggestions on bone alternatives that kidney friendly. Sorry — I was just a very different stage. That said, other readers have very wisely described how they have used to this very same recipe to make dog treats by either using this to bake ‘cookies’ or using a dehydrator for bites. Hope that helps. Best of luck on the road ahead for you and Theodore.

Thank you Cyndy — and thank you for being so generous in words. My research is far from perfect nor does it end when I did, but I’m truly humbled that it has provided so many others a foundation upon which to build health and hope for their loved ones.

… because they are loaded with protein and low in phosphorus and this whole approach is a balance to get to an end that is palatable. Moreover, it would be wrong to suggest that an egg white has so much natural sodium in it as to be the same as a tablespoon of table salt.

Thank you Debra. No worries about any fear of duplication. The comments are a very very long human chain of people facing the same problem. It’s a humbling thing to have been part of fashioning that first link and seeing where it has stretched. It’s always nice to hear other people’s experiences through this and a great pleasure to meet a chef who has taken the recipe and run with it. I totally agree. In the end, chief among my guiding rules is that if I found it disgusting, so would my canine love. It seems a horrible myth that dogs don’t have a sense of taste and “will eat anything.” Far from it. There is a great untapped market for chefs cooking for dogs I think ….

You’re very welcome. I’m glad my words spoke to you and they have been a way of uniting anonymous souls across a vast world dealing with similar pain. Enjoy your time … the gift of awareness of what you face gives you a special opportunity to make the most of each day.

Thank you Rosie. Ben lived to 18.5 yrs … another 6 months after his diagnosis of kidney failure.

Just a quickie to say thank you so much for the recipe. As a chef I find it more frustrating than most when my cooking isn’t appreciated! But today my Lurcher Callie fiinished her food for the first time in weeks after a serious bout of enteritis and underlying kidney problems. The only changes I made were to the cooking method – i fried the meat quite fiercely in the coconut oil to add crunch and caramelisation and then added the egg white and stir fried. What can I say? Old habits die hard! It went down a storm so thank you again, here’s to putting some weight on! Sorry if I’ve duplicated another post, I couldn’t read them all!
