One value that defines our innovation: The dog and cat comes first. For over 40 years, Royal Canin has worked with breeder partners and veterinary nutritionists to go ever further into innovation and precision to enable us to formulate nutritional solutions which perfectly meet dogs and cats’ real needs.
From the time they’re born until well into their golden years, dogs’ nutritional needs are constantly changing and their food should too. That’s why we offer a full range of products designed for every dogs life stage.
From the time they’re kittens until they’re mature, cats’ nutritional needs are constantly changing and their food should, too. Your cat’s health matters, and that’s why we offer a full line of nutrition designed for every life stage as well as based on thier specific breed, lifestyle or special requirements.
Because of its composition, a Royal Canin Health Nutrition food provides all essential nutrients measured out with utmost precision in order to contribute every day and on a long-term basis to the well-being and health of cats and dogs, according to their age, his size, his physiological condition and his breed.
Royal Canin is a global leader in pet health nutrition. In an industry that continues to adapt to popular trends, our mission remains the same: Observing them, learning from them, respecting them and recognising their differences is quite literally our life’s work. The goal of that work is to provide every dog and cat with the nutrition that is precisely right for their individual needs – needs that vary with the pet’s breed, environment, age, weight, gender, digestion, their genetic makeup and lifestyle.
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.
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.
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.
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.
