So sorry to hear about Sam. Just a word of caution when you are reading labels and the phosphorus levels. Most manufacturers post their MINIMUM value of phosphorus, which doesn't necessarily reflect the more accurate level. That's one thing I like about Nature's Variety's website, they post both their minimum guaranteed and the more realistic value for each flavour.

Liver, organs, brown rice, some fish and seafood, venison, bran, oatmeal, dairy and legumes are generally high in phosphorus.

Chicken, turkey and beef meat are generally low in phosphorus (as far as meat goes).

If you check the ingredient label on the cans of food, you may be able to determine better what the phosphorus levels are.

Sending lots of your way.
