Generally blood and urine tests reveal the severity of canine kidney failure and appropriate medications, traditional and/or natural are effective to treat kidney conditions so as to maintain a nice quality of life for many years.
If you are able to post and share your dogs lab tests, I am glad to review them and offer you specific suggestions regarding canine kidney therapy. Generally fluids, phosphate binders to elimination excess phosphate, B-Vitamins to boost red blood cell production and combat the anemia that usually occurs secondarily to renal disease and a good home-made or organic diet consisting of high quality, low residue protein is a good start.
