Friday night I went to the Grocery store and shopped for Baby. I put her on my gall bladder diet. with a few exceptions. We started by reducing her ID LF from 14 ounces a day to 10 ounces and replacing those calories with sweet potato, beets, green beans, and a tiny bit of cauliflower. Her moaning stopped right away that has been happening every time we lower the steroids and her stools resolved quick. Then last night I added egg white and 3 times boiled ground sirloin. But today she showed signs of a problem with egg whites so I will have to stop those and see if it resolves. I am going to keep adding and ad a little fruit and make sure she in not allergic to anything else. She is doing so much better and maybe her lupus might even calm down some, we will see.
Thanks for all of the suggestions. I am going to research all of it and a few others and decide in a few days what to try and switch to. What ever we end up switching to, I will have to add some carbs and proteins to get the fat down close to 6% or 15% by calorie.
I did check out the Raw Raw Beef Boom Ba and unfortunately is 26.7% fat by calorie. Most of the raw diets if not all are real high in fat but its misleading on the bag when they give you percent by weight. Her Hills ID LF is listed on the can as being 1.7% to 4% fat but when you get the dry analysis its actually 8.3% fat and 17.5% fat by calorie. Thats one thing they really need to push the dog food makers to give the actual protein, fat, and fiber instead of calculating it after moisture is added and by weight. I am sure a lot of folks have been mislead by what the container says. I used to go by that too until Baby had a pancreatitis attack and she was on 1.7% to 4% fat and I thought, NO WAY could that low of fat cause pancreatitis. Thats how I found out the truth about the real fat content in dog foods.
Hopefully this week we will find something but it may end up I have to just cook for her to keep the fat down.
Thanks everyone for your help, I really appreciate it
