|Ra - good questions. This isn't a pre-existing issue. I took her to the vet for urinary incontinence and he thought it was due to her age and prescribed Proin 25 but also did blood work. The results from the blood work is that she has an elevated white blood count and he put her on antibiotics, Baytril, for infection. He said that the blood work also showed that her bun and creatnine levels were elevated and that meant that she needed to be on a low protein diet. So I'm not sure if it is the protein that is causing her kidney issues.
I switched all of my dogs to a homecooked diet with raw meaty bones in February because I was so worried about the recall. I did research recipes, bought several books about homecooked diets and believe that I'm feeding them balanced meals. Prior to that I had her on Nutro for 2 years.
On a side note, the vet complimented me on her teeth which I believe is from the RMB that I've been feeding them!
