Special diet dog food for kidney problems

Postby gerryh » Mon Apr 10, 2017 7:48 pm

Our dog has a defective kidney and our vet has put him on a special diet.
€20.95 for 2 kilos.
Needs to be on it for at least 4 weeks.
Any recommendations for an online supplier?
A quick Google search brought up Zooplus ~57.99 for 12 kilos with fre delivery.
Cheers
Gerry

Gerry it's worth trialling the stuff first because our dog refused to eat the stuff. Point blank rejected it. For days.

We had no choice but to depend just on the drugs.

He seems to like the food. Eats it with enthusiasm.
Just hoping to find a more reasonably priced supply of the food. He is also on tablets, four a day and they aren't cheap either.

If your €20.95 price was from a vet's, try Mascota - pet centre on the back road of the Pol.Ind. behind Peugeot . . . on opposite side to Club 70, and a bit further up. Big price differences there, on top brands too.

Hi Chris
Just been to Mascota.
Quite a lot of stuff in there but only small bags of the food we need.
Hi Lyric
Zooplus looks good.
Cheers

Also have a look at this site - they ship out of Barcelona but service and speed was always good when we used it. Have a wide range of specialist foods etc on offer. I think they use Seur for delivery.
