Royal Canin Renal Canine 410g x 12
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 the progression of renal disease. Feeding a diet with adapted fish oil (source of EPA & DHA) content will help improve glomerular filtration rate.
An adapted content of high quality, highly digestible 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. This may then lead to a uraemic crisis.
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.
Specifically designed aromatic profiles target individual dog’s specific preference. Appetite issues, such as food aversion, hyporexia and anorexia, commonly occur as a result of CKD.
