Hello,

I read an article on Dr. Mercola/Dr. Beckers website about CKD and diet. Becker interviewed Dr. Pierson who is a cat expert. She disagrees with most vets who say protein is the enemy. She says diet s/b 40% protein and 60% fat (and zero carbs). Plus vitamins and minerals. She doesn’t mention what the fat source should be other than fish oil. Do you know if fish oil should be the only source of fat or if there are other things? If other than what specifically? How would proportions be calculated?

Thanks

Fat sources can include fatty parts of muscle meat and organs as well as skin. Check out feline-nutrition.org for a recipe. You’ll want to use the boneless version (the most popular is the eggshell substitute) for a CKD kitty since bone is high in phosphorus. I would probably also consult with a nutritionist for a CKD cat to make sure the phosphorus level is at the right amount, but feline-nutrition is a good place to start.
