    Has your vet suggested anything that might help? Dogs with CRF are sometimes given medication to stimulate their appetite, and some dogs with this condition also suffer with nausea which can be helped with medication.

    I really feel for you, it's not an easy thing to manage. I hope that with treatment and diet you are able to keep him comfortable for a good while yet :luck: :luck:
