Key factors to Fuzzerfood diet

The Fuzzerfood diet is for dogs who have issues with calcium oxalate uroliths. This diet is used as a preventative after the stones have been removed, and has been successful where prescription diets have failed. There is much to know about this diet, but the key factors are:
  • Feed fresh meat, grains, and veggies that are low in oxalate content in proper ratio to provide enough protein (33-40%)
  • Add calcium citrate powder to food (Now is a good brand). General amount is 300-350 mg per cup of food. 
  • Avoid all Vitamin C or D supplements, and salt
  • Add Vitamin E,  B, Omega 3 fish oil, and Lysmachia-3 at feeding time based on your dog's weight
  • Distilled water only

FuzzerFood is in transition

It's been awhile, but I wanted to let anyone know who is looking for the FuzzerFood diet that it is in transition and no longer available at the K9KidneyDiet yahoo group. Below is the direct quote on the site, which was dated Dec 17, 2010:

-------------------------------------------------------------
FuzzerFood is in transition.
Until the Editor releases it, FuzzerFood, LLC is unable to issue any copies of the regimen.

FuzzerFood, LLC is very sorry for this unavoidable delay and is working hard to launch the website, www.FuzzerFood.net, and to make the official FuzzerFood regimen available.

The Whole Dog Journal published an article on Oxalates in their May, 2010 issue and focused much of the article on FuzzerFood. The guidelines for FuzzerFood are in the article.

Until FuzzerFood is released you can obtain information about the guidelines in the WDJ article. The Whole Dog Journal has a wonderful reputation as an unbiased source of information on all things related to dogs. It is published monthly, and available electronically as well as in hard copy.

The web address for the Whole Dog Journal is http://www.whole-dog-journal.com/

If you are already subscribed, you can go online to get a copy of the article. If you are not currently subscribed, you can use the link to subscribe.

If you would like to be notified when the FuzzerFood website is up and running, send an email to FuzzerFood@aol.com and please make the subject line: FuzzerFood waiting list.

Thank  you for your patience!
