How old is your dog? Your Vet is the best person to guide you. I've not had kidney disease in a dog but in my own human mother and two older cats and assuming it's similar maintenance with just diet can keep one going a long, long time. In my case there were no meds or special diet, a person or cat can live with greatly reduced kidney function and it they are older and not as active as they once were can have a perfectly satisfactory life. You might never get to the point of sub-q, I didn't. It varies by subject of course and you do need regular blood work and consults with your Vet. Maybe you should try a different Vet?
