My Perfect Pet Low Phosphorus Food for Renal Failure

My Perfect Pet Low Phosphorus Food for Renal Failure

low_phosUntil recently, if your dog was diagnosed with renal failure and needed to be put on a low phosphorus diet, your only option was a prescription diet by your vet.

A little over a year ago, we were introduced to a Low Phosphorus diet by My Perfect Pet. It is a lightly cooked food that most dogs find very palatable. We have customers on it who have had excellent results both with their pet eating it and with the lab results they get back from their vet.

Delicious flavor of freshly baked lamb! Even picky dogs love it!
Quality muscle meat protein
