A complete dietetic feed for adult dogs to support renal function
RENAL is a complete dietetic feed for adult dogs formulated:
- to support renal function in the case of chronic or temporary renal insufficiency, through its low level of phosphorus and high quality protein.
Recommended for (indications):
- Chronic kidney disease (CKD)
Not recommended for (contraindications):
- Pregnancy, lactation, growth
- Pancreatitis or history of pancreatitis
Feeding advice: This diet should be maintained for the dog's lifetime. It?is recommended that a veterinarian?s opinion be sought before use or before extending the period of use.
CKD Dietary Management
Formulated to support renal function in dogs with chronic kidney disease (CKD). 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 progressionof renal disease. Feeding a diet with adapted fish oil (source of EPA & DHA) content is likely to improve the glomerular filration rate.
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. ?Royal Canin Renal diets are formulated with alkalinising agents.
Easy to mix
The texture of this formula (chunks in gravy) facilitates easy feeding with either Renal Canine dry or Renal Select Canine dry.
Specifically designed aromatic profiles and textures target individual dog's specific preference. Appetitie issues, such as food aversion, hyporexia and anorexia, commonly occur as a result of CKD.
