Protein in urine for dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Protein in urine for dogs


9397711 tn?1403547725 The reason being human grade chicken is high quality protein, rather than low quality often found in manufactured dog foods or chicken intended for dogs. Again, this is explained more in the article I wrote. You do have to be a little careful of baby food, though I understand your reason for giving it. Sometimes it contains things that are not good for dogs with kidney failure. You just have to check the ingredients carefully.
1916673 tn?1420236870 It can also suggest chronic inflammation or infectious disease when the dog’s globulin (one of the proteins in blood) level is known. In older dogs, a raised total protein count can be indicative of an immune system tumor. Hookworm infection is a common reason why the total protein level might be low. Food substance sensitivity, chronic intestinal inflammation, chronic liver and pancreatic problems can all cause the total protein reading to be reduced.
1916673 tn?1420236870 This will make the kidney disease worse. Tramadol is another problem ... it should only be used in very low doses for dogs with kidney disease and only used for the period of time it is absolutely necessary. I will comment more after seeing the blood results, but for now you might want to have a read of my article on diet here: http://www.infobarrel.
172023 tn?1334675884 I would also look in the major pet stores for foods/treats that are made for this. I know I've seen some while perusing those isles. Of course they are more pricey, as usual. But you might find some recipes online for the crystals. I believe w/ the crystals that too much protein is a problem.
793908 tn?1294708709 Does anyone know what what foods have NO Protein or LOW Protein that is good for dogs?? Are there any dog treats that are Protein Free or low Protein that is good for my Julie?? Any help is greatly appreciated.
9644933 tn?1407772490 While all the veg you have listed are fine for dogs, they should only be given in relatively small amounts. Dogs really don't need vegetables, other than for some of the vitamins they provide. A dog needs meat - and other than the ground turkey (not really meat but poultry) - there may be a lacking of essential fats, which are so important to dogs.
Avatar f tn I have a dog that has many allergies - both dietary and environmental. The dog eats RAW diet for years now and does very well on it. In the last 2 months I have noticed a "Urine" type smell coming from his head area. I can smell it on his jowls, the top of his head/neck, and comng from his mouth. I have washed him, I have used dog calone sprays, and I can still smell a distinct urine type smell arround his muzzle. What could this be?
Avatar n tn The explanation was that more protein would make the holes in the kidneys larger, therefore they would lose more protein. The first check-up 4 weeks later revealed that things were going fairly well, the levels of protein in the blood and urine were midway between what may be expected and there was nothing alarming. The next check-up was 3 weeks later, last week.
Avatar n tn says that because protein is metabolized in the kidneys that a low-protein diet is called for. Unfortunately, dogs must have protein or they will be malnourished. More recent studies show that low-protein diets make no difference, whereas focusing on calcium as a phosphorus reduce does help. I found it easier (and cheaper) to make my own dog food. Dark meat chicken is a great alternative to prescription food along with rice and white bread.
Avatar m tn I came to found out that Zantac was in Acute Renal Failure at that time. For the first in her life, she has to stay in the hospital for hydration and medications. Anyway, ever since that day, all of our lives had been changed forever. Zantac doesn't like her food ever since, we have to hand feed her. Fed her whatever she would eat, sometimes human baby food, sometimes chicken breast, sometimes boiled eggs, sometime beef.
Avatar m tn Lulu, our 14-year old terrier mix has always had a strong bladder. In fact, on a weekend, we sometimes had to "force" her to go out at noon or later for the first time in the day. Over the last year, she's had a few (maybe four) accidents that are very strange. It's always in the early evening after she's been out for her constitutional...maybe a half hour later, and she runs toward the door, or to us, leaking violently. It's like it bursts out of her. And she's just been out!
Avatar n tn Twice, the collection netted a blob of these fibers, which I believed were hairs. I noticed that these fibers had apparently been soaking for some time in urine. They definitely looked saturated, not like new hair or fiber that had just came in contact with the urine. I have no idea what they are or how they got there, but I hope that Morgolon's is not mentioned with it. That is totally different and it is strongly associated with psychiatric disorders. The fibers I have seen are very real.
1916673 tn?1420236870 I just wanted to check it wasn't the dreaded essential oil type, which are full of bad things for dogs. Here in the UK it's easier to buy, but darned expensive. Luckily most dogs only need a small amount each day for it to be beneficial. Sound like things are settling down there for you and a new pack order is being created between you and your other two best friends.
Avatar n tn She has had crystals in urine in the past and is on Science Diet CD. She is 12 and only has 5 teeth, I chop her food in a small blender, and add a little water and place in microwave about 7 seconds, she dances around till I put her dish on the floor, she eats so fast, and it's gone in min. I Believe God has given me alot of wisdom with her, 3 years doing good. I hope you know Jesus as your Saviour.
20701913 tn?1504105446 The chews I give her are for dogs 15 lbs or less. Is it safe to give her one of these a day? I think these are all the questions I have. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you for your time.
1660289 tn?1302560398 At the same time, we've seen cases where giving the prescription diet turned the urine in the opposite direction to the degree that crystals developed. In my opinion and experience, it is healthier for a dog to try for the results via a more natural diet. You DO have a good start by feeding canned rather than dry food. Studies have been published regarding the formation of oxalate stones and how diet does effect them.
9397711 tn?1403547725 Yesterday, he rolled around on our couch and bed like he would back in his better feeling days (you know, when dogs roll in the yard or dirt and are just loving it?) :) He then pat me when I would stop petting him which he used to do all the time. I pet him, stop, he pat me with his paw and repeat. Last night was the first time he did that in a long time and he struggled to pick his little leg up. He also has lost over .
Avatar f tn A blood test is available to check vitamin D levels. A low protein diet is no longer always advocated for kidney disease. Veterinary Acupuncture would be very beneficial. It could be used for the hip dysphasia and to benefit kidneys. It would also help reduce the dependence on Metacam, and increase your dog’s quality of life. Rehmannia 8 is available at most veterinary acupuncturists.
Avatar f tn In this stage, it is vital to restrict phosphorus and protein in the diet. Any protein that is given must be high quality (this means human grade meats and poultry) and kept to no more than 10% of the daily food intake. Proteins can be replaced with carbohydrates for energy and nutrition. I advise a very small amount of sticky white rice, couscous or sweet potato in rotation, which are all kidney friendly foods.
Avatar n tn symptoms of preeclampsia (blurry vision, flashing lights in the vision sometimes, swelling-in my face and fingers, but especially in my legs, nausea, headaches yada yada), but no high bp and no protein in my urine, so I haven't been restricted to bed rest yet- although my doctor says it is coming... planning on working another 2 weeks if I can.. we'll see how it goes.
Avatar f tn BUN levels can be reduced by restricting the intake of protein (hence the useful impact of renal specific dog food for chronic kidney failure dogs) and by increasing the intake of fluids (the administration of IV fluids is particularly effective). What this means is you need to pay close attention to diet - and maintain the fluids.
Avatar f tn I realize this fact, and give him his space till he's finished..... Here's an ingredient list (First 10 ingredients in order) of what was in the food my dogs had for dinner last night... Venison Meat, Venison Liver, Venison Tripe, Venison Heart & Kidneys, New Zealand Green Mussel, Lecithin, Chicory, Fish Oil, Kelp...... Now, go read the ingredients list from your Science Diet Bag and see if it even comes close to comparing....
Avatar n tn Thanks for your comment. I am 22 and I live in a suburb in Ontario, Canada. However, I doubt the tics that cause Lyme disease are in my area, as there are no deer around here. My anxiety has gotten a bit worse, so maybe that's the cause. I've had all kinds of paresthesia that seem to come and go every few weeks. I think it my fluctuate with my anxiety, but I'm not sure. This buzzing sensation is the most annoying. When I don't pay attention to it, it seems to disappear.
Avatar n tn If not, She needs a Vet visit ASAP with a complete blood panel run to look for any underlying conditions......Take a urine sample w/you to check for UTI or protein loss. It will be less money if you can collect your own sample to take. I wouldn't wait any longer--5 days is long enough & she needs to be seen! Let us know what you find out.......
2361255 tn?1339611918 My favourite amongst the wet foods are frozen blocks of white fish, chicken and green tripe (green for dogs, white for humans) that you cook (I use the microwave for ease) - mixed with some boiled white rice (not wholegrain as dogs find it hard to digest). I have never met a dog yet that won't eat green tripe, it stinks to high heaven, but they love it and it's full of natural ingredients, minerals and nutrition.
Avatar f tn High phosphorus accelerates renal failure, and restricted phosphorus slows it down. K/D is low in phosphorus, so it's a good food for dogs in this condition. Or it is possible -with some good research- to home-cook a Renal diet. In addition to diet, IV fluids can be administered to correct disturbances created by the retention of uremic toxins. Epogen can be prescribed to treat the anemia of chronic renal failure.
Avatar f tn Anyhow being serious here, she would go maybe 3 days and eat fine and then be sick or totally refuse to eat. The vet specialist phoned in a Rx. for Lactulose for her to regulate her stool and help to move things along and also Reglan for any upset stomach issues as needed. I was happy and it seemed to help a lot. This has been going on since ~ July with her diet but her it goes concerning diet. She flatly refused the Rx food (l/d) after a few weeks.
