Renal

Renal

RENAL is a complete dietetic feed for adult cats formulated:

- to support renal function in the case of chronic or temporary renal insufficiency, through its low level of phosphorus and high quality protein.

- to reduce oxalate stone formation, through its low level of calcium and vitamin D, and its urine alkalising properties.

Recommeded for (indications):

  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Management of calcium oxalate urolith recurrence in cats with impaired renal function
  • Prevantion of recurrence of urolithiasis requiring urine alkalinisation: urate and cysteine uroliths

Not recommended for (contraindications):

  • Pregnancy, lactation, growth

Feeding Advice: It is recommended that a veterinarian’s opinion be sought before use or before extending the period of use. Initially feed RENAL for up to 6 months in cases of chronic renal insufficiency and reduction of oxalate stone formation. For cases of temporary renal insufficiency a period of 2 to 4 weeks feeding is recommended.

Key Benefits:

  CKD dietary management 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 an adapted fish oil (source of EPA/DHA) content may help to improve the glomerular filtration rate.

Reduces renal workload

Increased 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 the generation of nitrogen waste products, which accumulate in body fluids when renal excretory capacities are reduced.

Metabolic equilibrium

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.

Appetite preference

The specifically designed aromatic profile helps to meet the cat's specific preference. Appetite issues, including food aversion, anorexia and hyporexia are common in cats with CKD.
