this is not a pit bull question, so please nobody shun me!
i have a little 16 year old mini poodle. she has fairly advanced heart disease and also mild kidney disease. plus some minor allergies of the itching feet and itching face variety. she also spent 6 days hospitalized for vomiting/elevated pancreas values about three weeks ago but the vet thinks that was viral.
she's supposed to be on hill's k/d, but, well, she's not been in the entire 16 months i've had her. she won't eat it and i don't like it. i've looked at the other prescription foods out there, and i don't like them either.
currently she's eating luce's canidae, which i'm pretty sure is way too high in phosphorus for her, but she eats it and she's keeping weight on. she's a very picky eater.
i've been thinking about switching her to raw, and my question is not so much how/what to feed her (i've been reading), but more *should* i? and if so, how do i go about switching her?
i've you don't mind weighing in on this- i'd like advice from somebody i've come to trust to be knowledgeable and rational.
thanks so much!
