This diet is a complete and balanced low-fat diet (6% fat on DM basis) and a moderate fiber diet (6.8% on a dry matter basis). Furthermore, it is low in sodium, calcium, and phosphorous relative to recommendations for an adult dog and thus would be appropriate for dogs with kidney disease.


These calculations are based upon a dog of 40 kilograms so please scale as appropriate.


An important aspect of management for pancreatitis and protein-losing enteropathy is to feed an ultra-low-fat diet. The first option is a home-cooked diet called the "STP Diet". The recipe is referenced above. If your pet does well on this diet, we may be able to transition to a commercially prepared ultra-low fat diet. It is important that you feed this diet and only this diet, meaning no extra treats or table scraps. If you must entice your pet to eat at home, do so with other ultra-low-fat options such as extra-lean ground beef, or white meat chicken breast. Some dogs do best on the home-cooked meal and if we determine that your pet is one of these dogs and decide to feed home cooked indefinitely, the diet will need to be modified (by adding specificvitamins and minerals) by a veterinary nutritionist to make it a complete and balanced diet. For the short-term, this is not a large concern.
