|I made Sassy's treats until she stopped tolerating egg white of all things. I made cookies from egg white, glutinous rice I ground in a coffee grinder and a wet flavoring. Both the egg white and rice are very low in phosphorus and I chose pumpkin and banana as low phosphorus flavors but also used liver and oyster which are high phosphorus but fit into her diet. Corn starch or degermed meal and tapioca are also low in phosphorus but I never used them.
Here is the method. Substitute any wet flavor you like for the banana. The rice absorbs the moisture and they actually have quite a nice texture. I used them moist but they could be cut and baked again for a crunchy cookie I suppose.
Aft er she stopped eating my cookies she enjoyed Trader Joe Ginger Cat cookies which are leavened with baking soda, not baking powder and are low phosphorus. She had quite the smirk on her face when she got human food and Max didn't!
Please join K9KidneyDiet, a yahoo group, for information on taking care of kidney dogs. They are awesome.
I figured out how I wanted to feed Sassy from information here.
And read and reread information in 'Optimal Nutrition' by Monica Segal for ideas on how to feed kidney dogs.
Sassy ate a glop made of overcooked glutinous rice and stewed chicken with the appropriate supplements to add the amount of minerals I wanted her to have and beef up the vitamins in the overcooked food. I did add a bit of different meats and starches to vary it but she liked chicken and rice just fine. I couldn't tell you what I decided to feed Sassy as your goals may not be the same as mine.
