shih tzu with kidney failure

Hi, my dog, SJ (8 years old) has recently been diagnosed with kidney failure and we've been told that he needs a very low protein diet in order to keep him somewhat healthy, the vet suggested royal canin renal canned food. He's been on it for a few weeks now and he hates it, it has no smell and just looks rubbish, he's always been a fussy eater but now doesn't eat much due to not liking this food at all, we asked the vet and all he said was to put chicken fat on it or grated carrot- neither have worked. could anyone suggest any different foods/vegetables/snacks etc that wouldn't have an impact on his condition.

Thank you in advance :)
