I have a very sick little Chihuahua, she has heart problems. I have been told to change her diet to a no salt diet, I have planned to start making her food. Could anyone please provide me with some recipes for dog food with no salt. Thank you.

I hope your doggy does OK! They are like our children, aren't they?
I need homemade dog food recipes that contain no sodium.

Dog treat recipes just leave the salt out. As far as sodium free dog food you'll have to get Science Diet or Perscriptives. Unless you have a Natural dog food supplier all processed dog foods have high amounts of sodium as a perserative.
Not sure if you are still looking, but I have some dog treat recipes you can check out. I use oatmeal, wheat flour and molasses, and a few spices. Had to buy a book. leekelly245 AT gmail.com
