My dog was diagnosed with chronic renal failure in January and put on a renal support (low protein) prescription food. He hasn’t been eating as much as he should each day for a while and now he’s refusing nearly all of his prescription food. He is not adverse to eating, judging by the amount of food that he tries to steal from the dinner table. His weight is dropping fast and the only thing he will eat is table scraps and meat. Will I be killing him faster by feeding him the beef and chicken he so desperately wants? It seems like otherwise he will starve to death.
