Hello All, its been awhile here in the forum. To update you on Autumn she has been good. We recently found out Autumn had a Mast Cell Tumor on her chest and had surgery yesterday to have that and another growth on her gum line. She is currently resting. I am here because her vet had told me yesterday that her blood work was borderline for her creatinine level and they were close to not going forward with surgery. She advised me that this happens when there is a high amount of protein that in the diet that it becomes too much for the kidneys to breakdown, she sad if this diet continues it could be leading to kidney complications and or possible KIDNEY FAILURE. Autumn is only three years old, she's been on PMR for two years now, all her other past blood work ups have always came back normal as the vet has told me. This is the first ever. I do not know if it could be due to the recent finding of the tumor or if I suddenly did something wrong with meal prepping or if something internally is happening with Autumn. This has been a most stressful time for both of us, harder for me to see her this way. Anyway, the vet had recommend that I turn back to kibble "as dogs are omnivores not completely carnivores" Autumn does get to eat a variety of fruits and veggies with me whenever I have them, which is ever so often.
So how can I change her raw diet to bring down her creatinine levels and keep her healthy? I absolutely do not want to go back on kibble, she has done so well on raw. Her coat, her TEETH!, her self has improved since we switched over two years ago. What should I be doing differently? She gets a variety of bone, meats and organs. Please help me so I can help Autumn!!
