For adult dogs that require support for chronic or temporarily reduced renal function
Renal is a nutritionally balanced diet for adult dogs that require support for chronic or temporarily reduced renal function.
The diet includes a low level of phosphorus and high quality, highly digestable proteins.
This diet should be maintained for the dog's lifetime.
Regular veterinary checks are advised. It is recommended that a veterinarian's opinion be sought before use or before extending the period of use.
Formulated to support renal function in case of chronic kidney disease.
Contains EPA and DHA, a complex of antioxidants and a low phosphorus level. During CKD, phosphorus is no longer eliminated effectively by the kidneys.
A restriction in phosphorus intake is essential to slow down the development of renal disease.
Feeding a diet with adapted fish oil (source of EPA/DHA) content is likely to improve the glomerular filration rate.
Inadequate kidney workload may induce uremic crisis. An adapted content of high quality protein helps reduce kidney workload.
Feeding protein well in excess of the minimum requirements leads to generation of nitrogen waste products, which accumulate in body fluids when renal excretory capacities are reduced.
Chronic kidney disease can lead to metabolic acidosis. Formulated with alkalinizing agents. The kidneys are central to the maintenance of acid base balance. As renal function declines, the capacity to excrete hydrogen ions and reabsorb bicarbonate ions is reduced and metabolic acidosis ensues.
Designed aromatic profile helps answer to dog's specific preference. Appetite issues, food aversion, anorexia, hyporexia, are quite common during CKD.
Royal Canin therapeutic veterinary diets are carefully formulated and strictly recommended to be used only under the advice of your veterinarian.
