Hey everyone,

I’m looking for some recommendations for renal food for our 14-month-old Cocker Spaniel. Unfortunately, after her spay operation, we discovered that one of her kidneys isn’t functioning properly. Right now, we’re mixing Royal Canin pouches with her renal dog food, but I’m wondering if there might be other options out there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!
