Low fat diet: What to give my dog
5

florriepeck · 06/01/2019 11:26

My elderly rescue Collie cross was very poorly over Christmas, with pancreatitis and gastrointestinal lesions.
He has now recovered, but the vet has advised a low fat diet, ie less than 2%.
Have been giving him plain turkey and cod and poached chicken, and Royal Canin low fat tinned food.
Any ideas for what else I could make for him?
He's a fussy eater; just want to build up his strength and let him enjoy life again; he lost a lot of weight in just a few weeks.

When you look for a low fat food it is really important you use dry matter for example the nutriment linked too is 5.2% fat ( not a low fat food at that level), but this is wet matter. When you correct for the 73% moisture it is actually 19.3% fat a really, really high fat food.

Oh same here! Ddog was admitted Boxing Day with pancreatitis and has since been diagnosed with diabetes. He is on the hills w/d wet and we are going to start adding in the kibble.

Apparently a lot of dogs do well on chappie which is low fat enough for the pancreatitis although I would imagine the actual quality of it isn't great.

Egg whites, raw or cooked. They're 0.2% fat and full of protein. The yolks are relatively fatty so avoid those.

//Www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk allows you to filter by fat content, though I don't know if you'll find one that's as low as 2%
