DIETS


Low
protein diets play a role in the treatment of several conditions, such as
kidney disease, advanced liver disease, and some forms of dominance
aggression. [If your pet has been prescribed a low protein diet], but doesn’t
like any of the commercial preparations, you might consider trying one of
these home-cooked recipes.
