Royal Canin Renal Select Dog 2kg
Royal Canin Renal Select 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):
- Pancreatitis or history of pancreatitis
This diet can 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.
Renal Select can be rehydrated if needed. Moistened with twice its volume in water at 60C to form a mush. Before feeding, allow to rest for 20 minutes.
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 golmerular filtration rate.
Reduces renal workload
An adapted content of high quality, highly digestable 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 anoexia, commonly occur as a result of CKD.
