Abstract

Dietary protein restriction has been the mainstay of conservative medical management of canine renal failure for many years. Although dietary protein restriction minimizes many signs of uremia, its potential benefits to the progression of renal failure are now being questioned. Two case scenarios of different degrees of renal failure are described; guidelines for dietary protein restriction are based on currently available scientific knowledge.
