      My vet and The Ohio State University made the suggestion of ROYAL CANIN CALORIE CONTROL 38- both canned and dry for Winston's chylothroax. Its a prescription diet and the vet can order it. Wellness actually makes a low fat diet too- but my vets thought the prescription diet was best. I have some of the wet and dry if you;d like to try them for Luigi.
      I still have 10 pounds of the dry left after Winston passed away last month......

      He does have the milky fluid, it's pink from blood probably, but when analyzed doesn't have all it's supposed to have to actually be chylous pleural effusion. I now have him on Rutin 3x/day.

      What is a low fat diet? Does it have the be the prescription types like R/d and W/d?

      Right now I am hand feeding him canned C/d and sneaking in some canned K/d. Dry food he's eating on his own, tiny bit, is C/d dry.
