Low Protein Dog Food Recipes

Hill's Dog food has this home-made recipe for Canine Restricted Protein Diet:

  • 1/4 lb ground beef (do not use lean ground chuck)
  • 2 cups cooked white rice (No salt added)
  • 1 hard cooked egg (finely chopped)
  • 3 slices white bread crumbled
  • 1 tsp calcium carbonate (Tums tablet)

Cook beef in skillet, stirring til lightly browned. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. This mixture is rather dry and its palatability can be improved by adding a little water, not milk. Keep covered in refrigerator.


Feeding guide:

  • 5 lbs 1/4 pound
  • 10 lbs 1/2 pound
  • 20 lbs 1 pound
  • 40 lbs 1 1/2 pound
  • 60 lbs 2 pounds
  • 80 lbs 2 1/2 pound
  • 100 lbs 3 pounds

I rescue Shih Tzus with major health problems and have used Hill's homemade diets for years with good results. (05/25/2008)

Low Protein Dog Food Recipes

My 2 dogs have kidney disease, and I had trouble paying the cost of the prescription dog food, too. My vet gave me a copy of the homemade food listed in this message board. (cooked hamburger and rice, bread, 1 egg) And I alternate between that and the Hill's KD. Sometimes my dogs won't eat one or the other, so I alternate when they get fussy. It's a cheaper way to go, since you can't use good beef, it has to be the greasy cheap stuff like ground chuck or hamburger meat. Apparently, the leaner the meat, the more protein it has. So you have to go with the cheaper fatty meat for low protein diets. (02/17/2009)
