Kidney problems?
#11
Happy to hear it's not a kidney problem. 

Will your vet be able to help you create a diet for him?

I am so very happy for you and Dash, such a huge relief. Have to wonder if the food intolerances contribute to the high levels that are his normal. It would be interesting to check again after a reasonable period of having his diet sorted out. Lamb and kangaroo (as well as chicken & fish) are big parts of my dogs diet and there are also commercial products both raw and processed, based on them. Roo is very lean but lamb helps compensate for that. Hopefully you can find some nice Lamb based foods for Dash. Thanks for sharing the FANTASTIC news.

I think I am missing something
What levels were raised and why is it normal. Just interested
Pleased it was good news.
Ah allergies so tricky. I have a few friends that are raving about canine caviar?

Glad his kidneys are alright. Hope you can find a solution to this other problem soon.

See if your vet can give you a referral to a veterinary nutritionist. You need a recipe for a homemade diet. It's really the only way to control all the ingredients when your dog has multiple food sensitivities. You can pay an arm and a leg for a hydrolyzed diet, but while they MAY not trigger the food sensitivities, they still aren't healthy.
Gotta love 'em.

Dash has raised creat and urea levels according to our vet. Despite this though we have been told now that his kidney is working fine.

We have been advised to feed him Hill's prescription diet Z/D food which he seems happy enough eating. There are very few things he can eat and the vet has advised that we steer clear of feeding just them things because he can develop problems with them over time too.

Nightmare! At least he seems much happier now though and he has gained weight nicely.
