    Lower Protein in Older Bichon Diet

    We had a urine test run on my 12 year old Bichon and the good news is no bladder/kidney problems. Bad news is higher protein level present than healthy. The vet told us to get him on a lower protein diet, but as you guys know, buying food for the Bichon is tricky.

    Anyone have any suggestions for a Bichon-friendly lower protein diet we can put him on?

    It would be a blood test that would show higher than normal protein levels rather than in a urine test. I would request a full blood work-up to include the BUN and Creatinine levels, as they are the sections of a blood test that will show whether protein levels are higher than normal and the dog needs to go on a lower protein diet.
