I have a 8 yr old male husky that just had blood work done.

Customer Question

I have a 8 yr old male husky that just had blood work done. His creatine was at 1.9 and BUN was at a normal range. I'm extremely paranoid and worried being that I just lost my 14 yr old female husky one month ago with failing Kidneys. Her creatine was high and so was her BUN. I need to find food that has possibly below 35% protein. Do you have recommendations to keep him healthy?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: he needs proteins that are not hot proteins. He needs, rabbit, fish or turkey.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Here are some options for you:

Duck, if this might be an option, at 26%: http://www.instinctpetfood.com/product/instinct-grain-free-limited-ingredient-kibble-dog-food-duck

Turkey at 25%: http://www.instinctpetfood.com/product/instinct-grain-free-limited-ingredient-kibble-dog-food-turkey

Practically all taste of the wild foods should work with proteins too if he needs more novel like venison. This one is venison and legume: http://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/dog-formulas/pine-forest-canine-formula-with-venison-legumes/

Your best bet for keeping him healthy will be keeping fresh water available at all times and having your vet recheck lab values every 6-12 months to monitor the progression of the illness.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
