Chicken and Potato Diet Recipe
Veterinarian Reviewed on April 1, 2012 by Dr. Janice Huntingford
Here is a recipe for a Chicken and Potato diet that would work well for dogs with kidney disease. The idea is to watch the phosphorus balance in the diet for these dogs. You can substitute turkey or lean ground beef if your dog prefers and barley if you do not like potato.
- 1/4 cup cooked chicken breast
- 3 cups potato, boiled with skin or 3 cups of cooked barley
- 2 tablespoons chicken fat
- 4 oz Portobello Mushrooms
- 1/2 cup of steamed veggies (carrots and peas are fine)
- 1 1/2 calcium carbonate tablets (600 milligrams calcium)
- 1/2 multiple vitamin-mineral tablet
Provides 689 kilocalories, 18.9 grams protein, and 26.8 grams fat
Supports the caloric needs of a 21-22 pound dog.
