Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog! I do have a website I recommend to my clients that has been given to me at several veterinary conferences as a good source for making a homemade diet for dogs with different diseases. It is called https://secure.balanceit.com/index.php. You can select different diseases/conditions your dog has an have a diet formulated based on this. Another option would be to consult the veterinary nutrition department at the vet school nearest you. What state do you live in?
So you can have the University of Tennessee veterinary nutritionists formulate a diet specifically for your pet as well. It will require your vet filling out a form for your pet's specific case. You can find the information on the link here: http://www.vet.utk.edu/petnutrition/servicesweprovide.php
There is a charge for that process, but then the diet will be exactly tailored to your pet.
If that isn't an option, I would look into the balanceit.com website, which will provide you with general recipes for pets with various medical conditions.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. If you do not, please take a moment to RATE our conversation so we can know if you were satisfied with your service and I can get credit for helping to answer your question. Thank you and best of luck!
Please let me know if those links came through and work- sometime there are issues with attaching them and I want to be sure you got them!!!
If you click on the link I sent you, you can put in your dog's information and it will provide you with the diet formulated for you dog.
Because your dog has several health conditions, I would definitely recommend the consultation with the nutritionist at the vet school. If you are unhappy with this information I have shared with you, I will opt out of your question and you can see if anyone else has a different answer for you.
That is for the nutritionists at the University, who have extensive training in formulating the perfect diet for your pet.
The first website I gave you does not charge this fee, but will want your vet to provide them with information about your pet, so that they can be sure it is appropriate for your dog. Your dog has several serious health problems, so personally, I would recommend a veterinary nutritionist at the vet school to formulate your pets diet. It seems like a high cost, but your dogs case is a complex one that should have a nutritionist determine the appropriate food.
