Supports renal filtration by helping facilitate dilation of small blood vessels in the kidneys and therefore reducing pressure in the filteration unit (the Glomerulus). Heart disease often increases the work load on the kidneys. A moderate phosphorus content will help maintain renal function in dogs with heart disease. Includes electrolytes to support heart function as electrolyte imbalances can have a detrimental effect on the management of cardiac disease. Taurine and L-carnitine are included to assist muscle fibre function in the heart, aiding the heart to expand and contract.Royal Canin therapeutic veterinary diets are carefully formulated and strictly recommended to be used only under the advice of your veterinarian.
