Contact your veterinarian for the right renal food for your cat.

Is renal dry food good for cats?
Answer

The topic of whether renal (kidney) dry food is good for cats is a subject of debate among veterinarians and experts in feline nutrition. Renal dry food is specifically formulated for cats with kidney disease or a predisposition to kidney issues. These diets are designed to manage the condition by reducing the workload on the kidneys and supporting their function. On the one hand, renal dry food can be beneficial for cats with kidney disease because it typically has a lower protein content compared to regular cat food. Restricting protein can help reduce the production of waste products that the kidneys need to filter, thus potentially easing the strain on the kidneys. Renal diets also often have controlled levels of phosphorus, sodium, and other nutrients that need to be managed in cats with kidney disease. On the other hand, some arguments against renal dry food for cats stem from concerns over the moisture content and carbohydrate content of such diets. Cats are obligate carnivores and have a low thirst drive, which makes them prone to dehydration. Dry food generally has a lower moisture content than wet food, which can further contribute to dehydration. Cats with kidney disease are already at an increased risk of dehydration, so providing them with a wet food diet or a combination of wet and dry food is often recommended. Additionally, dry cat food typically contains more carbohydrates than wet food, and some experts believe that excessive carbohydrate intake may not be ideal for cats, particularly those with kidney disease. Cats have limited ability to digest and utilize carbohydrates, and high-carbohydrate diets can potentially lead to weight gain, diabetes, and other health issues.

What is renal support cat food used for?
Answer

Renal support cat food is specifically formulated to help manage and support cats with kidney disease or renal insufficiency. Kidney disease is a common condition in cats, particularly in their senior years. It can be caused by various factors, including age-related changes, infections, genetics, or other underlying health conditions. The primary goal of renal support cat food is to alleviate the burden on the kidneys and slow down the progression of kidney disease. Renal support cat food generally contains a reduced amount of high-quality protein. Restricting protein intake can help lessen the workload on the kidneys by reducing the production of waste products that need to be filtered out. The protein in these diets is also typically of higher quality to provide essential amino acids while minimizing the production of nitrogenous waste. Kidneys play a crucial role in regulating phosphorus levels in the body. Cats with kidney disease often have difficulty eliminating excess phosphorus, which can further stress the kidneys and contribute to the progression of the disease. Renal support cat food typically contains reduced levels of phosphorus to help manage its accumulation. These diets also have controlled levels of sodium and other nutrients to manage fluid balance, blood pressure, and overall kidney function. Omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA, have anti-inflammatory properties and may help support kidney health. Renal support cat food often contains increased levels of these beneficial fatty acids. Cats with kidney disease may experience a decreased appetite or have changes in their taste preferences. Renal support cat food is usually formulated to be highly palatable to encourage cats to eat and maintain adequate calorie intake.

Is chicken OK for cats with kidney disease?
Answer

Feeding chicken to cats with kidney disease can be a part of their diet, but it needs to be done with caution and in consultation with a veterinarian. While chicken can be a good source of lean protein, it should be moderate in quantity. Cats with kidney disease often require a controlled protein intake, so the amount of chicken offered should be determined in consultation with a veterinarian. They can provide guidance on appropriate portion sizes based on your cat's specific condition and dietary requirements. A complete and balanced diet is crucial for cats, including those with kidney disease. Feeding chicken alone may not provide all the necessary nutrients, so please ensure that the overall diet meets the specific nutritional needs of your cat, which may include additional supplementation or feeding a commercial renal support cat food.

What is the difference between urinary and renal cat food?
Answer

Urinary and renal cat foods are designed to address different health conditions in cats, and their formulations vary accordingly. Urinary cat food, often referred to as "urinary tract health" or "urinary care" formulas, is formulated to help prevent or manage urinary tract issues, particularly feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). FLUTD encompasses conditions such as urinary stones (crystals) and urinary tract infections. The main goals of urinary cat food are to promote urinary tract health, maintain proper pH levels, and reduce the likelihood of crystal formation or urinary tract obstructions. These diets are formulated to promote slightly acidic urine pH, as they can help dissolve certain types of crystals and reduce the risk of urinary stone formation. Urinary cat food typically has controlled levels of minerals, such as magnesium and phosphorus, to prevent the formation of crystals or stones. Some urinary cat foods are formulated to increase water consumption, either by having higher moisture content or by incorporating ingredients that encourage increased water intake. On the other hand, renal cat food, also known as "kidney support" or "kidney care" diets, is designed to support cats with kidney disease or renal insufficiency. The main goals of renal cat food are to reduce the workload on the kidneys, slow down the progression of the disease, and support overall kidney function. Renal diets typically have reduced protein levels compared to regular cat food. The protein included is often of high quality to provide essential amino acids while minimizing the production of waste products that the kidneys need to filter. Renal cat food is formulated to have reduced levels of phosphorus, as cats with kidney disease often have difficulty eliminating excess phosphorus. Restricting phosphorus intake can help manage its accumulation and minimize further stress on the kidneys. Renal cat food often has controlled levels of sodium and other nutrients to manage fluid balance, blood pressure, and overall kidney function.

Can I mix renal cat food with regular?
Answer

Mixing renal cat food with regular cat food is not generally recommended without the guidance of a veterinarian. Renal cat food is specifically formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of cats with kidney disease or renal insufficiency. It typically has controlled levels of protein, phosphorus, sodium, and other nutrients to support kidney function and slow down the progression of the disease. When mixing renal cat food with regular cat food, it can be challenging to control the nutrient levels and ratios accurately. This can result in an imbalanced diet that may not adequately meet the specific nutritional requirements of a cat with kidney disease. Remember that the purpose of renal cat food is to manage the condition, and altering the nutrient composition by mixing it with regular cat food may compromise its effectiveness.

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet's digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.
