renal heath

hi, there - I have an 8.5yo bulldog named Hanna. I was recently advised to
start her on K-d dog food as a preventative measure against renal failure.
Although she is fine, this is all carbs and she is gaining weight. I feel as
though I'm starving her when I give her less so not to gain weight. My
question, since she needs to be given less protein what else is out there I
can feed her without her feeling hungry? Has anyone else gone through this? Thanks.

Maybe you could add some veggies?

Those are not high in protein, cooked green beans or carrots?

Natural Balance Reduced Calorie

I put Mr. Higgins on this food because his kidney values were high. (unhappy kidneys)
On the next bloodtest the bloodwork was normal, including kidney values.(urea and creatinine)
It has 18% protein. I don`t think he is hungry on it. I feed 2/3 cup 3x a day because he was a regular vomiter. That fixed the vomiting issue. He is not losing weight, just always has been a small boy at 44lb. (But oh so cute)
Best of luck.
