Default Phosphorus in Orijen Senior?

How would I go about finding out how much Phosphorus is in a serving (1 cup) of Orijen Senior? I have a little dog that is supposed to be on a low soduim and low phosphurus diet. He has CRF & CHF. I don't want to do the prescription diet that my vet recommends because I think it is too low in protein and not palatable. I am currently feeding Orijen Senior and I need to find out if it is low enough in phosphorus content to continue feeding...I am switching to distilled water because there is evidently a lot of phosphurus in tap water...I am also currently cooking for the little guy. Recipe's are welcomed because he gets tired of the same thing all of the time. Since I am dealing with a passle of seniors, I may as well try to lower the phosphorus as much as possible for everyone. Any suggestions?

Orijen senior has approximately 1.48 grams of phosphorus per cup based on a 410 calorie (250 ml) cup.

For CRF I would personally do a home prepared diet. I would also add a good salmon oil with vitamine E, probiotics and, if you can find it, Pet's Friend makes a glandular supplement - they actually have one called Rena GO that has kidney and heart glandulars. COQ10 can also be beneficial for both issues.

If you want to feed the Orijen Senior, just make sure you add water to the food. I do agree with going with distilled, or at least filtered, water.
