RENAL SELECT 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.
Recommended for (indications):
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
Management of calcium oxalate urolith recurrence in cats with impaired renal function
Prevention of recurrence of urolithiasis requiring urine alkalinisation: urate and cysteine uroliths
Not recommended for (contraindications):
This diet should be maintained for the cat'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 cats 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 an adapted fish oil (source of EPA & DHA) content will help improve glomerular filtration rate.
Reduces renal workload
An adapted content of high quality 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.
Weight loss in cats with CKD is driven by insufficient calorie intake. Renal Select has a higher energy density which helps CKD cats reach and maintain ideal body condition.
The specifically designed aromatic profile and unique double texture of the kibble helps meet the cat's individual preference. Appetite issues including food aversion, hyporexia and anorexia are common with CKD.
